OXO Good Grips Salt Grinder
Since two of us in our household are enduring the dexterity issues that come with rheumatoid arthritis, I am gradually replacing items in our home with easier to manage versions as they come to the end of their 'life'.
I had seen several positive reviews of these grinders and ordered them to replace the worn out acrylic ones we had that were proving very difficult to use.
I am so pleased with these aptly named Good Grips grinders. They are sturdy, well made and well thought out items that are above all easy and comfortable to use. They're used upside down so there's no mess when they're standing on the table/worktop and have a flat stable surface at both ends. This combined with a large easy to manage opening makes refilling mess free.
I was slightly surprised at their large size - delicate tableware they are not - but as soon as I used them I understood that the large size in itself contributes a great deal to their being so easy to use. As that's a necessity for me I'm more than happy to overlook their slightly clumpy appearance!
The grinding mechanisms are wear and corrosion proof ceramic ones and the rest of the unit is finished in stainless steel and a rubber type soft grip material that's very comfortable. There's an easy to use adjustment lever for fine to coarse grain. I didn't notice much difference and just leave it on the smallest setting.
Great well designed good quality product, definitely worth the price.
John Lewis communication, packaging & delivery were all excellent and for a very reasonable postage charge too. (I live outside the UK).

No fuss salt grinder!
Easy to grip, works every time, doesn't clog up. It may look unusual, but it really works!

It does what it is designed to do.
It works properly - it grinds salt (and with a choice of size of grain) with the minimum of effort and no mess at all. Very pleased with the purchase.

Best salt grinder we have ever had
Over the years we have had many pepper and salt mills. None of them has ever been anywhere near as good as these OXO good grips ones. We have had them for over a year now and they are as good as, and work as well as, new. They are easy to use and easy to fill. They feel sturdy and solid in your hands and because of their size they are easy to turn. Not the cheapest but by far the best. You can adjust the coarseness of the grinders very simply. Because the mill is on top there are no messy droppings and filling is simplicity itself. What more could you want.

Great product. Ordered it along with the matching pepper grinder. Grinds easily. Useful to be able to change coarseness of grind. Clever design means no more salt dropping on the table. Bit pricey, but used birthday vouchers. The quality of the product was worth the money. Would recommend.
