Whilst everything below remains true, and these ARE the best salt and pepper mills money can buy, nevertheless they are increasingly looking overly expensive. There are other crushgrind mills on the market now at much lower costs and other ceramic mills (not crushgrind brand, but identical) that are a mere fraction of the price. You can buy a two mill ceramic grinder set in stainless and acrylic - just like these - for £13 for the pair. vs circa £50 for these mills? They are overpriced.
I have used goodness-knows how many different salt and pepper mills over the years, and these are without a shadow of a doubt the best there is.
The ceramic grinder never wears down nor clogs and you can easily adjust the courseness of grind to give you anything from fine powder to big chunks - up to you. Since they don't clog up, the flow of salt or pepper is really good too - you can in seconds grind out a teaspoon of pepper for a recipe for example.
Expensive yes. Worth it? Definitely. Just a couple of things to mention:
1. The salt mill really needs rock salt to work best. Sea salt is too wet and flaky and doesn't grind as well.
2. Don't trip and hurl the salt mill 6 feet into the air and onto the stone floor of the kitchen as I just did - sadly, it may well break, which is why I am here buying another one! I've dropped them a couple of times and they survived that, but my latest bit of kitchen gymnastics was a drop too far :-(
1. They are very solidly constructed, which makes them heavier than the average mill. The shape however means they don't slip out of the hand easily
2. They are 'fatter' than average.
As a result, and with the materials being naturally a little slippery, I would not recommend them for people with gripping difficulties such as arthritis sufferers, where a smaller/grippier mill would be better (the T&G web site is a good place to review the entire range which uses this mechanism).
If you are wondering how they fill, the metal cap is simply a bung with a silicone(?) ribbed seal. Look carefully at the pics and you can see it. This works well.
They look nice. They fill easily from the top. The ceramic grinder is heavy duty, efficient and adjustable.
The CrushGrind can leave a circle of salt on the table when put down if you use sea salt (it doesn't seem to grind as well as rock salt and sticks around the base). If you want to use sea salt, you can always invest in the little condiment tray that T&G sell as an extra.
