In season: 10 best salt and pepper sets
Grind it, shake it, or opt for electronic seasoning. However you want to serve your salt and pepper, we select a range of the best kitchen helpers to spice up your dining table
Salt and pepper is a staple for any kitchen or dining table but how you cook with it or serve it is up to you. You might want to opt for a grinder with a top-of-the-range ceramic mechanism that can be adjusted depending on how coarse you want your condiment.
Or, if you want to be able to season one-handed as you cook, then there are plenty of electronic options out there. For something less functional-looking, plump for some shakers (whether you go novelty is up to you). And for those who prefer to leave their salt and pepper loose, there are pinch pots to consider.
We’ve sourced a range of options from Wilko’s budget grinder to Wesco’s sleek retro offering, here’s our pick.
