Just Grind It: A William Bounds Acrylic Salt Mill Review
Dec 24, 2011
I've used an oak pepper mill with salt shaker for more years than I care to admit. As a chef, I prefer freshly ground pepper and tend to enjoy using a five peppercorn blend which is attractively displayed in acrylic. Since I bought the peppermill, I decided to purchase the salt mill as well.
The William Bounds acrylic salt mill, like the peppermill, grinds course bits of salt with the crank of the handle. The grind can be adjusted between fine, medium, and course, and compliments the attractive peppermill. Ceramic grinders are designed to never rust or wear out.
Using a traditional shape with contemporary materials creates a pleasing modern appearance. Refilling, adjusting the grind, and milling salt are all accomplished from the top of the mill and are simple to achieve. The salt mill grinds salt so well, it seems difficult to control the amount of salt produced. This can be a problem when adding salt to a single serving of food at the table, but not as much while cooking a meal in the kitchen. We generally don't use salt and pepper shakers at the table, so the salt mill hasn't been a problem for us.
Visually this salt mill has a modern feel and is made in the US from high quality materials. If being careful with salt intake is important for you, this may not be the best option. Otherwise, the William Bounds salt mill is worthy of consideration.
PROS: Traditional shape with contemporary materials Grinder stays sharp Simple to use
CONS: Not the best option for use at the dinner table
