You know those beautiful brass salt and pepper sets you see in all the designers’ kitchen photos? Did you know they’re like $90 each?!
That brass set has become somewhat synonymous with a beautiful kitchen, but spending $180 on salt and pepper grinders is a bit excessive, if you ask me. On the other hand, if I was to count up how much money I’ve thrown away on one-time-use glass grinders from the grocery store, I’d probably have a couple of those fancy sets by now.
But I digress.
Whether you are looking to upgrade your own salt and pepper set, or you’re looking for a hostess gift – or maybe you’re shopping for Christmas presents already – I’ve rounded up 15 beautiful (and reasonably priced!) salt and pepper sets for you to peruse.
I recently purchased the first set. Although they’re definitely a bit smaller than I anticipated, they’re still about the same size as the previously-mentioned grinders you – or rather I – buy at the grocery store. The design and the handmade-in-Turkey element adds a certain charm to our kitchen.
As a reminder, I’m on a mission to upgrade all of our utilitarian home goods with stylish alternatives. I shared a dishes and glassware roundup last week, and this week it’s salt and pepper sets. From brass to copper to wood to chrome, there’s bound to be a set to fit your aesthetic. Most of these are grinders, with a couple exceptions. In case you were blissfully unaware, freshly ground pepper is significantly more flavorful than pre-ground pepper.
Here they all are again, in case you prefer to shop the post in this manner. I spend days perusing the Internet in search of the perfect products to include in these roundups – so you don’t have to!
Now, which one is your favorite?
