Editor's Notes

March 22, 2019:

In terms of both form and function, the Chefvantage Adjustable are some of the best salt and pepper shakers you can get without spending too much money. The different-sized holes enable them to dispense almost any type of spice, and they're easy to adjust with a quick twist. If you live in an area with a lot of humidity, the self-closing hinges on the Tumbler Home Moisture Proof will help to keep your spices fresh and dry, so they won't clump up or clog the lids. The vibrantly-colored Le Creuset Stoneware come in a variety of finishes to match different styles of decor, and their glossy high-fired enamel coating is extremely durable. The OXO Good Grips is the best set for cooking, as the pour spouts allow you to dispense a lot of salt or pepper at once, but they tend to come open a little too easily, which can result in over-seasoned food and messy counters.
