The Ten Best: Salt and pepper mills
Thursday 03 August 2006
1 Cole & Mason, £9.99 each
This Inverta Mill dispenses from the top rather than the base, so no spillages. This Flip design in tough acrylic comes in a variety of shades.

2 Aga, £40 for salt and pepper set
Like the Aga cooker, the look here is fairly traditional. The logo on top doubles as a handy way to distinguish the pepper from the salt.

3 Cream Tap, £7.45 each
Style-wise, this chrome and acrylic mill may look chunky, but the easy-to-grip tap handle is actually very user-friendly. It is easy to refill, too.
