This nifty little grinder is not just any old grinder. It's a salt and pepper grinder, all in one, with both a fine and coarse grind for each.
Upon opening the box, I realized that the Fresko Duo was built to last. According to Ozeri, it is made of the highest quality stainless steel--seems to be rather accurate, judging not only by the weight, but also the appearance.
The grinder had two see-through chambers on each side, one for salt and one for pepper. On each side, there is a removable lid bearing the Ozeri logo, where the salt or pepper is dispensed. I noticed that these lids were a bit loose, and often fell off a little easily, but if you push them on there nice and tight, they tend to stay on.
Below, you can see the chambers up close. To access these chambers, you simply wiggle them off, one at a time, while holding the center.
It's interesting, because simply by looking, you can't tell that the Ozeri Fresko Duo Salt and Pepper Grinder even comes apart. But it definitely does--and quite easily, actually.
The overall feel of the salt and pepper grinder was comfortable. It didn't slip out of my hands or slide around. It was very easy to use. It also stands up perfectly straight and saves space.
To try out the salt and pepper grinder, I added in some coarse salt, until the chamber was filled.
I then reattached the chamber, removed the pepper chamber and filled it as well.
Grinding was effortless. The Ozeri Fresko Duo Salt and Pepper Grinder uses ceramic gears for grinding, which makes it incredibly easy. There are two adjustable knobs to adjust the grain, from fine to coarse.
Below, you can see the salt (from left to right), prior to grinding, on a coarse grind, and finally, a fine grind.
The same is happening here, although with the peppercorn. So, from left to right, we have regular peppercorn, coarsely ground peppercorn, and finely ground peppercorn.
And a little closer on the coarse ground, just to see detail.
Overall, the Ozeri Fresko Duo Salt and Pepper Grinder is a useful, practical, durable grinder, for a reasonable price (around $20 on Amazon). It's easy to use, easy to fill, and easy to adjust. It saves space, when compared to both a separate salt and pepper grinder. It's also very slim.
Not to mention, it just looks good.
With that said, Ozeri has done it again--another great product!
