Pepper shakers at restaurants are just for show. Otherwise, the salt would look lonely. So we include another shaker, fill it with what once was a tasty spice, and pass it off as pepper. While this impulse may satisfy our instinct for paring off, our palates suffer with dry, tasteless pepper that might as well be sawdust.
These small Thumb-Operated Pump Mills bring portability to pepper. Measuring 5.5-inches long, the stainless steel mills feature not only a small size, but also one-handed operation. So pass the pepper at the tableâ€”literallyâ€”and grind your own with a push of a button.
