Pepper may make us sneeze, but it also happens to be a delicious spice. Putting a new twist on getting pepper from peppercorn to plate, the Fred and Friends Daily Grind Pepper Grinder offers a charming way to fend off those workday blues.

As the pepper mill grinds the spice, the bodies and heads of the restaurant staff get mixed up; the chef, wine sommelier, waiter and patron all become one. Bright and colorful, the whimsical beechwood kitchen tool offers a fun way to get back to the daily grind — by facing it head-on with a handful of pepper.

Herb Mill Stores Right In The Freezer

Fresh Mill Herb Storage and Mill

Fresh herbs, while delicious, are often quite a hassle to deal with: at the store they can be expensive, while growing your own can be tricky. However, cooking just wouldn’t be the same without them. So, we suffer the price tag or attempt to grow a green thumb, and when our efforts are rewarded with fresh herbs, two new issues arrive: storage and use.

While how to supply your kitchen with fresh herbs may require some contemplation, actually storing and using them doesn’t have to. The Fresh Mill Herb Storage and Mill solves two aspects of herb usage at once. The kitchen gadget stores herbs directly in the colorful little container, while the integrated mill makes adding herbs to dishes as easy as opening up the freezer. Just grab and twist, and stored herbs quickly become delectable ingredients. The innovative design conquers two of the more common issues regarding herb usage, and makes those fresh herbs in the store seem a lot more economical.

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 table—literally—and grind your own with a push of a button.
