What experts liked
The grinder has been dubbed “a One-hand wonder” simply because it is easy to user and one can operate it with one hand
- Trustorereview
It has a efficient ceramic motor that grinds the peppercorns professionally. It has a large push-down button that quickly grinds the seasoning and release it into the food.

The mill and grinder can make dust to flakes of salt, peppercorns, and a variety of dried spices in an assortment of sizes. Particularly with salt, the mill and grinder can grind sea, kosher, or Himalayan salt in different levels of coarseness. From fine to coarse, the settings are adjustable to the preferred size.
- The Smart Consumer
The rubber cap prevents dust and helps in maintaining moisture free fresh peppercorns.

The acrylic container has a ¼ cup capacity. The ceramic mechanism used in this grinder has even been chef-approved.
- Best Selected Products
The rubber cap seals the bottom of the mill and has two functions
- Kitchenistic
The Eparé was the only electric model we tested capable of a consistent fine grind. And was the quietest electric model we tested.
- New York Times Wirecutter
This ceramic grinder is very durable to use, and it is also easy to grind all types of peppercorns, salt, and spices from coarse to very smooth.
- Economical Chef
Rubber cap to seal of grinder opening.

By pushing the large button down a LED lights up on the food and you only need to use one hand.
- The Genius Review
It works at the touch of a button and is equipped with a powerful motor and a simple-to-adjust dial for control over the desired coarseness of your spices.
- Wiki EZ Vid
What experts didn't like
It is not very durable.
- Trustorereview
The featured mill and grinder only works with battery power. If the batteries die out and you do not have replacement batteries at home, you cannot use the mill and grinder until you replace the dead batteries. Make sure you keep a backup pack of batteries handy in the kitchen in the event the batteries die out while you are preparing your meals.
- The Smart Consumer
It needs four AA batteries which are not supplied.
- Kitchenistic
This Eparé isn’t as easy to fill as most manual pepper mills: you have to twist apart the base from the top stainless steel cover and then pull apart the base from the battery pack to access the refill opening.
- New York Times Wirecutter
Tends to jam occasionally.

An Overview On Salt Grinders

No dining table is complete without a salt and pepper grinder. These two spices add a burst of flavor to a host of foods, and having a set readily available where you eat allows all guests seated at the table to season their meal to taste. There are a few things you’ll want to consider as you begin your hunt for the perfect grinder.

Simplemost Media

Check the construction. Some models are made using acrylic bodies, while others are created from glass. You’ll also find models that are completely constructed from wood. While these are attractive, they don’t allow you to view the amount of spice left in the grinder.

Simplemost Media

Examine the grinding mechanism and take note of the materials used to make it. The OXO Clear Salt Grinder uses a ceramic grinder that won’t absorb any of the spice’s flavors or odors, while the Willow & Everett Stainless Steel Salt and Pepper Grinder Set is made of stainless steel that won’t rust or stain.

Simplemost Media

Review how many coarseness settings the grinder has to see if it meets your needs. The Cole & Mason Medium Forest Wood Salt Mill features three coarse settings; however, other models offer as many as five. You’ll also want to make sure you can switch from fine to coarse with ease, especially if you’re working on multiple dishes at the same time.

Inspect the grinder to see how easy or tough it is to refill. Models with screw top lids are ideal, as are tops that release when you simply pull upward. Keep in mind that some models are refilled from the top, while others are refilled from the bottom. You may actually need to flip the grinder over to unscrew the cap.

Simplemost Media

Look for any extras that may set one grinder apart from another. The Latent Epicure Salt and Pepper Grinder Set, for example, is battery operated and able to grind your spices with the touch of a button. It also comes with an LED light that lets you know when you’ve added just the right amount of spice and a plastic stand that collects any extra salt and pepper remnants.

DWYM Fun Fact

Did you know that the USDA daily recommended dose of salt is just one teaspoon? If you enjoy this flavorful spice, you may be interested in learning a few more fun facts about salt.

  • Salt was actually used as a form of currency in Ethiopia up until the 20th century.
  • Salt is needed for everything from balancing sugar levels within the body to clearing the lungs of mucus and phlegm.
  • If your pet has fleas, you can actually use salt to get rid of fleas naturally.
  • The world’s largest salt flat is located in Bolivia and spans 4,000 square miles.
  • Sea salt extracted from the ocean has 84 minerals that are good for the body.

The Salt Grinder Buying Guide

  • If the salt grinder you’re interested in comes with a warranty or guarantee, make sure you know what it covers. Some warranties and guarantees only cover the grinding mechanism. That won’t help if you have a problem with the lid or the actual container.
  • It’s good practice to clean out your salt and pepper grinders from time to time. To do this, you’ll need to unscrew the lids and shake out any old spices that still remain in the grinders. If you have any trouble getting them out, use a can of air to force it out. Now you can scrub the inside of the grinders with a bottle brush and a little dish soap. Feel free to use a regular washcloth or sponge to clean the outside. Allow the grinders to air dry. If the outside glass has any streaks, you can wipe them away with a little white distilled vinegar.
  • Your pepper grinder can be used to grind other foods as well. You can use them to grind mushrooms for a soup, coffee beans for a hot cup of java and coriander seeds for a homemade salad dressing.
  • Prices for salt grinders vary by the materials used to construct them, as well as any special features they may have. You’ll find the Willow & Everett Stainless Steel Salt and Pepper Grinder Set and the OXO Clear Salt Grinder are more affordable options, as they are more standard. Shoppers will find the Latent Epicure Salt and Pepper Grinder Set commands a higher price thanks to its battery-powered and one-button operation. The Cole & Mason Medium Forest Wood Salt Mill is also more expensive because it’s made using a rich attractive wood that’s more upscale.
