This is a fine product and we have enjoyed using this because it does a great job. I highly recommend iot to everyone.
I bought these grinders to replace an Avon pepper grinder that constantly popped opened and spilled the peppercorns all over the place even though I was positive the grinder was securely closed.
I have had this grinder a couple weeks. Some reviews mention that it is underpowered; I did not find that to be the case at least for my usage which is generally to add salt or pepper on top of a dish at the dinner table. That as opposed to using it to cook.
A couple review state the light is useless; the light does help a little.
I also ran into the problem of forgetting to take the bottom off. I'll overcome that issue eventually.
However, having the bottom helps. When I do use it for cooking and would like to measure the amount of salt or pepper. Keeping the bottom on while grinding allows it to accumulate into the bottom as a pile so that accurately measuring out a teaspoon is possible.
The grind is ok, but not perfectly even.
No more twisting your wrist off for fresh pepper. This not only grinds at the touch of a button, but an led light clearly illuminates the food! And yes, you can adjust the grind. This product is even better than I had hoped. I highly recommend it to you.
Love baked potatoes and yams slathered in butter and covered with fresh ground pepper and sea salt. These grinders are handy, easy to use and saves on "carpal tunnel" from hand grinders. LOL
Hopefully they will last a long time
I like this product because it holds a fair amount of pepper and salt. It lights up as you are seasoning your foods. The batteries don't need to be changed very often.
Excellent value. Works great, like the light that comes on during use!
My husband and I purchased a black and white set of automatic grinders similar to this set at our local Walmart a couple years back. When having guests over and the opportunity to use them has come up we have had lots of comments and everyone has wanted to know where we purchased them. We thought they would make great gifts, but were unable to find them at our local Walmart again. I had decided to look online to see if by chance Walmart online carried them and was elated to see that not only do they carry them, but they are in the stainless steel to match my kitchen. I LOVE them even more than my black and white set, for a few reasons, they aren't plastic, they seem to work a bit better, and they have caps on the bottom. My other grinders do not have the caps and the salt especially gets all over the place. Definately a great investment and I can only hope we get many years of use out of them!!
Work as advertised. More attractive than those in the store.
However, the grinders are rather fun to use and they do a fine job of grinding at the size grind you prefer. Besides that, they look fine on the kitchen counter. I may end up purchasing some as gifts. Be sure to have four alkaline AA batteries for each of the grinders though.
sure beats twisting or cranking. just got these and so far they perform well.
I really like this grinder - easy to use & to fill or change batteries. I had a different one for the last 6 years, but you turned it upside down to use - which was also how you filled it or changed batteries, so you wasted pepper every time you did that. This one is much easier, and changing the grind size actually works! The light is bright & helps a lot in dim light. You get 2 for the price of 1 of most others, so it's a great value - IF it lasts! I've only used it a few times (rec'd less than a week ago) so only time will tell if it's the bargain it seems to be. One arrived broken, but I called the factory and they are just going to mail me a new one - I don't have to go through the "rigamarole" of a store return, which really works for me (I'm a shut-in & do most everything on line.)
This product was far better than expected for the price and as good as the more expensive sets I have been pricing.
These grinders are sleek looking, easy to operate and one knows with just a glance when the grinders need refilling---no over-seasoning either! We love them!
I rated Durability at 4, since I have had the unit only a week. So far it's a dandy, and well priced, compared to other automatic shakers. I love the idea of the button on top, and the slender feel of the shakers, that makes it easy to hold onto while pressing the button. My wife has arthritis, and finds these very easy to work with. I'm disappointed, that Walmart doesn't provide a starter kit, for the pepper and salt. I'm having trouble finding the salt nuggets. The color is great too, and fits in with any decor. I hope things work out with these shakers, but, have to wait and see.
For the 6 months the mill lasted it was very nice. The mill has a metal case, and the ginder is supposed to be ceramic. However, the problem I have with it is that the gear that turns the grinder is PLASTIC. And what do PLASTIC gears like to do?...........strip out.
Returned all 4 due to quality and design
A piece of plastic broke off and was inside grinder with the pepper pellets. I might have gotten some plastic with the pepper I was grinding. Also there is not enough room for much pepper or salt. The motor and batteries take up too much space and leave little space for pepper or salt.
Has been nothing but a hassle from the moment I walked into Walmart to pick it up. Once you open it to put the batteries, and the pepper in it, it's very hard to get back together and then doesn't work. I will be returning it on my next trip to Walmart
I was so excited to have found this; but when I opened the package, both units had the plastic rim broken on them, and thus one of them wouldn't lock closed. The price was right, but the product was very poorly made. This item is going back.
Works as advertised
