Many of the products found in some of our earliest Solutions catalogs are still around to this day—although they have evolved over the years. Take a look at this week’s featured product focus: Pepper Grinder vs. Bistro Salt & Pepper Grinder.
The one-handed Pepper Grinder was featured in the first Solutions catalog (March 1986). For fresh ground pepper, just squeeze. For salt, all you had to do was turn upside down and shake. Available then in glossy black, it also featured a grind control option that allowed you to adjust from fine-ground to cracked peppercorns.
A slight variation from its predecessor, the modern Bistro Salt & Pepper Grinder uses 6 AAA batteries. A slight angle revs its motor so you can grind with one hand. Tip one way for salt, the other way for pepper. See-through chambers make it easy to see when it’s time to refill. It is also fully adjustable from course to fine grind, and comes with an innovative silicone nonslip grip.
