Wow. $49.95/59.95/79.95 on the website.
What is the material of the grinding burr?.. I ask because for grinding salt you want a non-corrosive material like ceramic…
What is the capacity for each of these sizes for, say, peppercorns or salt?..
I would like to know this as well.
Don’t use salt with stainless steel. You want to go with ceramic for sure.
Yes, I’m a little confused myself. You don’t turn a salt grinder into a pepper grinder by changing the letter on top. One’s a spice; the other’s a rock.
Unless these are being sold as decorative tchotchkes, it would also be nice to know the capacity of each and the range of size grind you get.
Will one of these help me get through the daily grind?
So gift week really is more of a gift month sort of thing I guess.
So, yes, I get it – size doesn’t matter… hardeeharhar, but, really, why do they come in 3 different sizes?
The write-up… oh man, the write-up…
One point: A larger size would be more appropriate for someone with a large family or who entertains frequently. In a smaller household, you wouldn’t want a larger pepper grinder because the oils in the peppercorns are volatile.
Wow… whoever knew about Black Pepper Oil Volatility?..
@editorkid: Hint: You don’t have to fill the grinder completely full. Just sayin’.
@NightGhost: Why would Olive care?
And for the trifecta:
Olive Wood? Yeah, That’s what she said.
Try the veal. I’m here all week.
This is great stuff!!:
HOW TO TREAT OLIVE WOOD:
* REGULARLY - ONCE A MONTH - RUB IT WITH A LITTLE OLIVE OIL * WE SUGGEST YOU USE OLIVE OIL FOR BEST RESULT * YOU CAN ALSO USE OTHER OIL LIKE SUNFLOWER OIL OR PEANUT OIL, ecc. * DO NOT BUY EXPENSIVE OLIVE OIL FOR THIS PURPOSE !!! * THE CHEAPEST OLIVE OIL WILL DO !!! * CHECK REGULARLY THE WOOD FOR DRYNESS. * KEEP IT GREASY ... * WASH WITH WATER AND NORMAL DISH CLEANER * DRY RIGHT AWAY * DO NOT USE DISH WASHING MACHINE
* POUR A LITTLE OILVE OIL ON A PAPER NAPKING * RUB GENTLY ON THE OLIVE WOOD * COLOUR WILL CHANGE SLITLY * BE GENEROUS WITH THE OIL .. OLIVE WOOD LOVE IT ! * DO IT REGULARLY AND OLIVE WOOD WILL LAST FOREVER BEAUTIFUL * THAT`S ALL IT TAKE !!!
LOL - I think editorkid was using another definition of volatile - i.e. tending to change (as in “a volatile market”). But my understanding is that peppercorns last a lot longer than ground pepper for just this reason.
They come in 3 different lengths and you have to ask?
Uh oh!.. there are problems in Olive Wood Paradise… but it’s good for a laugh, anyway…
Never use food based oils to treat anything made of wood. Food based oils; canola, almond, olive, peanut, etc are all perishable and will go rancid over time. If you want to treat it properly use mineral oil and be careful not to get any in the food dispensing area.
Once a month is also far too often, maybe once every 6 months to a year.
The price also seems a bit high, but then again everything on wine woot seems like it isn’t much of a deal.
