Alessi Salt, pepper and spice grinder in aluminium casting, black.
A celebration of the dining table and all those tools that enhance the pleasure of sharing and enjoying good food: this was
the design concept for the “Grind” salt, pepper and spice mill by William Alsop and Federico Grazzini. Not simply a gadget
for the table where meals are eaten, but an object that is part of an essential experience.
The designers have also introduced a small variation in the usual structure of this tool: when the Pepper mill is not being used,
it sits with the grinding mechanism facing upward. The grinder is thus clearly on display, stylishly framed by the distinctive
design of the body of the Salt mill. It is a functionally important detail as, after use, it allows “Grind” to be set down on the
table without scattering any ground spice residue on the table.
Characteristics / Suggested use.
The body of the pepper mill is made of die-cast aluminium with an interior in nylon, a material particularly suited to contact
It features a ceramic grinding wheel, the ideal choice for grinding any kind of spice. The grinding wheel is housed in the top
part of the pepper mill to avoid dirtying the surface on which the object is set down after use.
