A New Spin On Shakers

My better half and I have gone through about a half dozen salt and pepper mills, not just because we like our foods well seasoned but because he handles gadgets with the same finesse as king kong trying to pick an egg out of an egg carton. Same goes for the number of pizza wheels and vegetable peelers we've gone through. Christ! Don't get me wrong, he knows his way around a kitchen but he has a history of leaving a path of destruction for me to clean up.

Anyway, I digress. For those occasions when you're having company over and you don't feel like breaking out the monster 12" high salt and pepper mills and you're in the mood for whimsy, these magnetic salt and pepper shakers are just the ticket.

With your choice of black or white Magnito Salt & Pepper Shakers are made up of two halves, Magnito clicks together and pulls apart to reveal separate salt & pepper shakers. As a combined form, Magnito is a spinning top that rolls around on a table top. Each half is labeled by an “S” or a “P” delineating their contents and has holes with different orbits, which keep the salt and pepper isolated in their containers. Check them out at the Kikkerland website. You'll also want to check out the "Psycho shower curtain" on their website!
