Some of my favorite things belong on a kitchen table. So what’s the best thing to go on a kitchen table? Condiments! Here’s a list of some of my favorite Salt & Pepper Shakers which will forever be known as ‘The Most Creative and Coolest Salt and Pepper Shakers Around’.
1. Salty and Pepper
This product all started with a really popular tv commercial featuring Salty, the unwanted salt shaker. Now everyone wants Salty and his bi-polar opposite friend grazing their kitchen tables. Yup, looks like he’s crying his salty tears all the way to the bank. And I don’t mean the food bank. Cha-ching!
2. King & Queen Chess Mills
We reviewed these awesome mills right here before and guys, I gotta say, they may be salty, but let me tell yah, these mills are saaawweeeeet. I love to grind.
3. Salt and Pepper ‘Bots
All your bouillabaiise are belong to us. These robots are awesome. Who wouldn’t want a robot shaker that winds up and walks across your table? It’s a rhetorical question.
The answer is obviously everyone.
4. Watering Can Shakers
These watering can salt and pepper shakers are genius. The whole idea of a watering can filled with salt and pepper instead of tasty hydrating water just boggles my mind. Something this cool will probably give me high blood pressure, simply due to it’s sheer awesomeness.
5. Shark Fins
We’ve reviewed these shark fin salt and pepper shakers before. But I plan on talking about these little guys until my jaws are sore. I’ve never heard so many two note theme songs being hummed when some one asks to ‘pass the salt’.
6. Batteries (Salt and Power)
Batteries have always gone hand and hand with salty tops, but it’s fortunate to know that licking these salty tops won’t result in severe pain followed by your tongue slowly melting away like licking real batteries. You might call it ‘A Salt and Battery’, but I like to call it the second best use of DD’s at the kitchen table.
7. Lego Blocks
Ah yes, toys of my youth. I find it hard to resist not stacking these shakers – they look like they would fit. You see, all those years of playing with lego has paid off. My analytical abilities are astronomical.
8. Hugging Ghosts
I’m still trying to figure out if they are hugging or wrestling. But I’m 100% positive they are ghosts. OR ARE THEY? haha, just kidding. They are.
Or are they?
9. Hugging Dolphins, why not?
Even though it looks like they are doing the Riverdance, I can assure you when they are put together they appear to be hugging. And even though I’ve never seen dolphins hug, I’ve never seen a million dollars either.
And just between you and me, dolphins – they got a lot to hug about.
10. Good Chemistry
Any time I can talk about something that’s in the shape of two balls, it’s a good thing. But these are no ordinary balls. They are chemical compounds! NaCl, otherwise known as Sodium Chloride, or commonly known as table salt and… hmm what is Pe?
There is no Pe in the period table of elements. Trust me, I checked. In fact, the chemical compound of ground pepper is composed of more than 100 different things. I had some ground pepper with last nights dinner and that chemical equation resulted with some tummy pains and severe noble gases. If you know what I’m saying.
11. Star Trek Shakers
My number one reason for reviewing these shakers was their sheer star power, it’s truly engaging. I know my warped sense of humor can’t be replicated, so even after probing the deep space of my kitchen table, with seating for 9, I finally found the napkins to wipe the klingons from my face and begin this review. But now I’m kinda at that point I don’t really feel like I wanna laforge through it. Spock it.
12. Switch Salt & Pepper Shaker
I am slowly going salty, 6 5 4 3 2 1 switch. Salty going slowly am I, 6 5 4 3 2 1 switch.
13. The One-Handed Salt & Pepper Mills
I love these shakers. Mainly because I’m lazy.
Why would I want to use two hands when now I can use just one? Riddle me that. And with these one-handed shakers you can actually grind your salt AND your pepper at the exact same time, if that’s what you are into. I’m not though.
I only save the two-handers for special occasions. And impressing the ladies. Ohhhh yeaaaaah.
14. Tiki Pepper Mill
I’m not really sure what tiki statues and pepper had in common before, but somehow, together it’s sawweet. Just press the big nose and out pops the pepper.
Hey, did you know that the real Easter Island Statues were actually made to insult a region of people? They were basically giant stone caricatures of the people they were poking fun at. So needless to say, I’m sure their ancestors, with the big noses will get plenty of these for Christmas this year. Or possibly Easter.
15. Rain Shakers
These cloud shakers are pretty awesome. My expert forecast is calling for ‘cloudy with a chance of salty meatballs’! Simply shake these clouds to make them rain all over your meal. Genius.
Now, I can’t entirely recommend showering your meals with a blanket of salt and pepper, but a little sprinkle never hurt anyone.*
*High amounts of salt may cause dehydration, high blood pressure, and possibly death. Rained on your parade.
16. Saltside Out Shaker
This salt shaker boggles my mind. Its a shaker that puts the salt on the outside of the shaker! To fully understand the ingeniousness of this, one must completely disregard everyday things we often take for granted, like gravity for example. This literal out-of-the-box product creates a bizarro world right at your kitchen table. And here’s the part that’s really going to blow your mind.
You put the salt on your meal after you finish eating it.
Just kidding. That would be stupid.
17. Retro Arcade Salt and Peppers
Ah yes, super rad Retro Arcade Salt and Pepper Shakers. Pew Pew! These shakers are made from a space age material. They are pixelated, awesome and get a high score in my books. These truly are killer condiments for the table geek out there.
18. Mover and Shakers
These shakers may look like your ordinary traditional salt and pepper, but they pack a little extra vibrato. Just pull the string and watch your shakers vibrate all around your kitchen table. These are perfect for the weakling that would prefer to have a shaker do the shaking for you, or if you are lazy like me.
19. Salt and Pants
This little guy may look all innocent, but when he takes off his pants, things really start to heat up. This fun shaker set really gives ‘dressing your table’ a whole new meaning. They actually remind me of the hot pants that I’m wearing right now, they have a similar fit, without pleats, and are really fun to shake when I’ve taken them off. Yee haw!
20. Angel and Devil Shakers
Whether you prefer some salty goodness or adding a little heat to your meal, these shakers are the best to end things off with. I can’t think of a better way to cap the greatest list of the most creative and coolest shakers around than with these two guys. Unless of course this is your last meal.
+1. Salt & Magic
Just wave your magic wand and watch the magic sparkles fly. And poof, just like magic, watch as heart disease magically appears!
