I don't use shakers. I have a lovely set of grinders for Himalayan pink salt and whole peppercorns.

I like fresh pepper.But salt is not a big deal. I usually make sure that the dish is appropriately seasoned so I don't need to add any salt.

Whilst Salt and Pepper shakers look nice sadly the humidity often stops them being effective (even if a little rice is added to the shakers to help cut the humidity).
Grinders are much more effective and you seem to get a fresher tasting paper or salt (mainly pepper).
All of the above. My cupboard has several kinds of pepper - whole, cracked, powdered white, powdered black, pink, green . . etc. The salt is Himalayan pink in both a salt cellar and a grinder. For ease of use when eating, we have a double sided grinder. (pictured) It gives your hand a workout as a bonus. I think himself is addicted to pepper, as it is he who buys it all. LOL.

Rice, does that mean you get an equal amount of salt and pepper out of it in one go?
by Vee
No, Vee, it is so cute, you spin the handles half way around and get the other condiment. It has an S and a P on it . . . if you squint you might see it. I was given it by a friend and I just love it. It also has little dials underneath so that you can adjust the grind to be finer or coarser. To fill it you just pop the side doors open.

Just the norm, did use grinder for pepper but found it a little too strong now.

I love to look for vintage Salt & Pepper shakers. as they are a lot of fun!
Yep! I have these ones in Purple, love them...

Salt and pepper shakers for me please.
We use grinders. Our grinders are Russell Hobbs ones and they are motorised. They have a light on them too, for those candlelight dinner, I assume !!!!
Oh my gosh, Lluxi. My mother has these. >.< I'm not a fan of the motorised light-capable varieties. But I can see the practicality of having them.

Prefer 'shakers' as that's what I'm used to.

My Head Chef son will only use grinders, so I bought, for his use, in my place, a beautiful set of wooden grinders'.

When I dine out, probably 60% of food ordered, I enjoy having the ground black pepper from those huge pepper-mills!
I always buy the disposable grinders nowadays -have done for a long time.

Grinders anyday. Once you use griders and tasted the freshness especially with pepper, you would never go back to shakers.
I've always used grinders, as my parents did.
Now my tall salt grinder has stopped grinding, but the pepper 1 is still going well. they were a set, from a well known brand. I do have another unused set, so I'll have to find those now! Both these sets were from Victoria's Basement, in the QVB, Sydney, although I'm pretty sure they have another store somewhere else in Sydney.
