Lenox Butterfly Meadow Fine Porcelain Salt and Pepper Shakers

Charmingly curvy, these fine porcelain salt and pepper shakers from the Lenox Butterfly Meadow pattern add an attractive botanical touch to any table. Though unquestionably a matched set, the shakers feature distinct flower and vine patterns created by Lenox artist Louise Le Luyer. The two-holed shaker is painted primarily in pink blossoms, while the three-holed shaker is done mostly in yellows. The shakers' rounded design is easy to control, while the tapered foot and scalloped collar add loft and grace to their profiles. The pieces are dishwasher-safe and are covered by Lenox's lifetime replacement policy. Each shaker measures 2-1/4 inches in diameter and stands 4 inches tall. --Emily Bedard

Trudeau Alero Pepper mill and Salt Shaker, Copper

The Alero grinder and its salt shaker mate are plated with soft, brush-finished copper. Tall and curvy like a large chess piece, the tool’s designed to be gripped by its body while the top knob turns to grind pepper.

The mill’s metal case houses rustproof grind gears (made from a high-grade ceramic), that mill peppercorns in a dual, chop-then-grind method, releasing as much flavor as possible. The mill may also be used to grind sea salt or spices. Grinding clockwise yields a finer grind. For a coarser grind, turn the knob counterclockwise. (A sharp quarter turn clockwise will clean out the last bit of fine-ground pepper when it's time to switch to coarse.) Unscrew the small, brushed steel knob at the top to open the mill for loading. The Alero mill comes ready to use, fully loaded with black peppercorns. The salt shaker also comes filled with salt.

The Trudeau mill and shaker are not dishwasher-safe. Wash by hand without immersing in water or holding under running tap. Use damp cloth and mild detergent to clean the mill body--towel drying thoroughly-- or use copper cleaner. Both mill and shaker measure 2-3/4 inches in diameter by 8 inches tall. Trudeau guarantees these products with a five-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. --Garland Withers

Old Dutch International 4¼ Inch Antique Embossed Stovetop Salt & Pepper Set

The antique look of these salt and pepper shakers puts them right at home in a kitchen with exposed brick walls and racks of copper pots. Keep them handy on the stove where they'll season up stews and roasts with a good hearty shake. A grapevine motif is hand-embossed around the middle of each shaker by skilled artisans, adding to the old-fashioned quality. Each features a squared riveted handle and a plastic plug underneath; the only difference between the two is the number of holes in the domed top.

While copper cookware often comes with a lacquer that needs to be removed before use, the lacquer on the salt and pepper shakers does not require removal. Splatters from cooking can be cleaned off with a soft sponge and detergent; abrasive pads and cleansers will scratch the surface. Each shaker measures 4-1/4 inches tall and 2-3/4 inches in diameter, excluding the handle. Care of the copper salt and pepper shakers is easy: wash by hand in warm, sudsy water, wipe dry, and avoid harsh pads or cleansers that can scratch the finish. Because Old Dutch copperware is hand-crafted, slight variations from one piece to another are to be expected. --Ann Bieri

Trudeau Battery-Operated Pepper Mill, Steel Finish

Trudeau's battery-powered pepper mill has a one-handed design with a sleek bullet shape. A simple press of a button on top activates the grinder.

Its sturdy, plastic body has a glossy, steel-like finish. Inside, it houses rustproof grind gears (made from an extra-strong ceramic), that mill peppercorns in a dual chop-then-grind method releasing as much flavor as possible. The body unscrews to reveal a battery chamber--requires four AAA batteries (not included). Lift the black section off to uncover the see-through acrylic chamber when it's time to refill with peppercorns. This mill also works well as a grinder for sea salt or spices.

The Trudeau battery-operated pepper mill is not dishwasher-safe. Wash by hand without immersing in water or holding under running tap. Use damp cloth and mild detergent to clean the mill body, toweling dry thoroughly when clean. The pepper mill measures 2 inches in diameter by 5-3/4 inches tall.

Portmeirion Botanic Garden Salt and Pepper Set

A matching salt and pepper set is the finishing touch on any table, formal or casual. This hand-painted set from the Botanic Garden collection is ideal for any occasion. The plump, rounded shape of each piece means that they are easy to pick up and fit neatly in the hand. Of course they coordinate perfectly with the rest of the Botanic Garden collection, but the floral motifs on this set, while boldly colored, are delicate and subtle enough to complement any service.

More than 30 years ago the founder of Portmeirion Potteries was inspired by 19th-century botanical illustrations to create the Botanic Garden collection of tableware and cookware. Each piece is crafted from fine glazed earthenware and features highly detailed floral designs complemented by a simple border of green leaves to give the collection a coordinated look. Botanic Garden tableware is safe in the freezer, microwave, oven, and dishwasher, but it should not be subjected to sudden changes in temperature. --Simon Leake

Chef'n Mini Magnetic Set, Black Handles and Black Pads

The Chef'n Mini Magnetic grinder set has an unusual, one-handed design unlike the typical hold-and-twist motion of most grinders. Two soft-grip handles squeeze together to activate the grinding mechanisms. As a result, it takes less motion to grind the same amount of salt as it would with a conventional grinder. In addition, shaped like a bunny head with two big floppy ears, the whimsical grinders liven up any table setting.

The bodies of the Chef'n PepperBall and Salt Ball are constructed of sturdy, clear plastic with "rabbit-ear" handles made of soft rubber grip pads. The durable grinder mechanisms--metal for the pepper and ceramic for the salt--are adjustable to five coarseness levels. Small knobs on the underside of the grinders turn to the right for coarse and the left for finer grinds. Easy-slide refill windows make replenishing the salt and pepper supplies a snap.

The Mini Magnetic set has strong, built-in magnets for easy storage on refrigerators or other metal surfaces. This handy feature plus the size of the grinders makes them very portable. The set comes filled with coarse sea salt and black peppercorns. They each measure 3-3/4 inches tall by 2 inches wide. --Garland Withers

Convenient plastic lids snap firmly in place to keep ingredients fresh and allow for easy transportation to a picnic or family barbecue.

Sango Splash 4-Piece Dinnerware Hostess Set

Crafted of natural stoneware inspired by the pottery work of central Java, Indonesia, the Splash pattern features natural, earthy tones that are "splashed" together to create a marbled, wood-like texture of light and dark grains. Because they're hand crafted, no two pieces look alike. All pieces are safe to use in the dishwasher and microwave, making for easy clean up, which is always a joy. Use alone or with other items in the Splash collection and enjoy a trip to Java even on nights when there's no time to leave home! --Jeff Dalto

Peugeot Paris Salt Mill, Natural

Salt is the oldest mineral on the Earth. It's all around us and we crave it--in soups, on french fries, on vegetables. It's a basic ingredient for thousands of recipes and our bodies need a certain amount, though some of us may need to lighten up a little on the ol' NaCl. With its partner pepper, salt graces tables all over the world. This wooden salt grinder from Peugeot comes in a classic style, reminiscent of a rook from a chess set. To fill, unscrew the knob on top, remove the upper section, and pour in the salt crystals--try kosher or sea salt for extra zip. How tight you screw the knob back on determines the grind. --Dana Van Nest

Peugeot Bistro Peppermill, Walnut

Peugeot has been crafting peppermills since the mid 19th century, when the company first created its unique channeling and grinding mechanism, and the Bistro peppermill is one of its finest representatives. Constructed in a classic café shape with a walnut finish, the mill features channeling grooves that line up and crack the peppercorns, and grinding grooves that perform the fine grinding process. The result is pepper ground finer than with other mills. In addition, Peugeot mills are more durable because the teeth in the grinding mechanism never lock together, resulting in less wear over their lifetime (and yours, as the company offers a lifetime guarantee on the mechanism). Users will also appreciate the dual grinding modes--if you crank the unit one direction, you receive a fine pepper grind, whereas the other direction produces a coarse grind. To fill, simply unscrew the top knob and add peppercorns. --Rivers Janssen

William Bounds Professional Chef's Mill 12-in.

William Bounds, a 30-year-old company, prides itself on never having had to replace a grinding mechanism because of wear. This hefty, 12-1/2-inch-tall professional chef's mill feels solid, heavy but balanced, and has a smooth stainless-steel finish. Its classic shape is ergonomic in the hands and will look handsome on a countertop. It's made to deliver large quantities of pepper or other spices, and two short twists of the mill's rounded top delivers enough pepper for a small salad. You might want to keep it in the kitchen, though, where you could season a dozen roast chickens without wearing yourself out. --Maria Dolan

Peugeot Chaumont Square Acrylic Pepper Mill

More and more food lovers are enjoying the benefits of fresh-ground pepper at their tables. This sleek, modern little mill makes freshly ground pepper with a twist of its top. Unfussy in operation, it's equally unfussy in appearance--clear acrylic to catch the light and display the pepper within. To refill, simply unscrew the bright metal knob and remove the top. The mill's metal grinding mechanism is precise and durable. The mill comes filled with pepper. To maintain appearance, just wipe with a dry cloth. --Fred Brack

Arthur Court Grape 3-Piece Salt and Pepper Set

This delicate little salt-and-pepper set is a sweet accessory to display alongside other Arthur Court grape-design serveware but is versatile enough to pair with any formal tableware. Each miniature shaker is designed in a cylindrical shape out of swirled glass and stands about 3 inches tall with a slim 1/2-inch diameter. The screw-on lids are made of stainless steel to avoid staining or pitting from the salt. The shakers rest within a bed of grape leaves on a hand-crafted stand, which also features detailed bunches of grapes and a branch for a handle. The brilliant luster of the stand captures the elegance of antique silver; however, it is actually made of hand-polished aluminum, which is much easier for today's busy hostesses to maintain. The stand is not dishwasher-safe but cleans easily with mild soap and water--and, because the shakers are breakable, it is advisable to wash them by hand as well. This set makes a wonderful shower gift for the bride who has registered for other pieces in the grape collection. As Arthur and Elena Court, owners of Arthur Court Designs, are avid conservationists, a percentage of all proceeds of their products go directly to wildlife preservation and environmental research and education projects. --Cristina Vaamonde
