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.
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.
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.
