As Ant and Dec would say..."Salt and Pepper not included"

I've got the stainless steel version of these - think they were £9.99.
They are absolutely great.

I don't know about the quality of these but if they are similar to mine this is a very good deal.

thought it was another ann summers deal

Do you get one or two - not clear from the description Seems like a good buy

Oh! They're salt and pepper mills. Silly me.

almost phalic

Shady advertising, also agree with the above posters and thought it was something else

Classy. Do people not want to manually grind their own peppercorns?

I thought they were something else aswell lol

Glad to see i'm not the only one with either poor eyesight or a dirty mind.

Soft-touch electronic salt and pepper mills with viewing window and light.



Viewing window? You have more fun watching Two and a Half Men. Almost.

You can get these for a fiver each at Wilkinsons. They are shocking quality! Do NOT purchase! We've just thrown 2 sets out and gone back to the non-mechanical type last weekend. Firstly the base which holds the salt in is connected to the main top half of the mill via a small metal clasp (poorly) slots into a hole and is held there by a tiny magnet I think, which is no way strong enough to hold the container full of salt or pepper. Second, these take FOUR batterys!! Which again makes the top half of the mill too heavy for the bottom half because again they are slotted together by a very small hole. So you have to pick the entire mill up very softly and place back down very softly or it falls apart. Thirdly, whenever you put down the mills they always leave a mess. Which is a nightmare it its own right. It's impossible to place them down and them not make a mess. Fourthly... because they are so cheap and flimsy the grinding mechanism at the base isn't strong enough to grind either salt or pepper thus constantly getting peices stuck! Resulting in four big shakes necessary of the mill with every press to un-jam it!

An utter complete bad experience over the past 3 month with these things. You certainly get what you pay for! These are cheap for a reason.

Edit.. forgot to mention that the light on them rarely works too. Shocking.

Now this really is just lazy. I mean part of the fun of using a pepper mill is grinding the pepper corns. Useful for disabled people I guess.

yeah if it's that much of an inconvenience to twist the grinder...just but it ready ground in a pot, then you don't even have to push the button

i also thought this was a sex toy

Same here, avoid at all costs!

Broken Britain at it's best.

People can't even be bothered to operate salt and pepper mills any more. How lazy.

Obesity problem anyone? I should write a strongly worded letter of complaint to the Daily Mail.

lol

dont buy these-
just got them today and they won't grind the salt or pepper as the motors are too weak.

and before anyone says it- we bought because of the colour and not to save energy grinding the salt and pepper the old fashioned way
