    Part of me that thinks I may regret this but here goes.

    So after recently donating a kidney to Grilla Grills (more to come) I was awarded a $25 gift card which I used in part to.purchase these


    I was skeptical at first but I am getting ready to purchase another set because we like them so well. Push of a button and they produce the perfect amount of salt or pepper. I use kosher and when they are full they get stuck sometimes but a quick shake and they work great.

    And yes Panhead John I am sure they will salt melon....

    What might you have regret about? I have been a big proponent of of electric (battery operated) salt and pepper grinders for years! You’re gonna love em! I’ve been using these things for probably 20 years. I use mine during cooks and also at the table. I don’t know why everyone doesn’t have a set of these, at the very least, for using at the dinner table. I got so tired of manually grinding pepper corns, having to use both hands. You did good ordering another set.

    If someone seeing your post decides to try a set and orders from Grilla, good! But, there’s also lots of these on Amazon for sale as well. Many also have a small light that shines on your food as you use the grinder. All of them also let you adjust your grind from fine to coarse.

      Nope, these are not battery powered either. Or maybe I am misunderstanding your comment.

      Ok. I thought they were. What do you do, push the button up and down? I’ve never seen any like that.

      Yes. You basically push the button one time and salt or pepper comes out. Of course depending upon how much you want determines how many times you push the button. Really works great.

    DavidNorcross You state that you use kosher and when they are full they get stuck. You then say "a quick shake" and they work. I think those would qualify as SALT SHAKERS.

    What's next.....WiFi on them?

      Not at all. These are manual. Push of a button. Kosher is a thicker granual and when they are full and have not settled sometimes the salt does not come out as well. Not often at all. There is no electric at all with these.

    Hey why not, better than buying some of the junk that appears thru my doors on a daily basis.
    Four seats of patio cushions have walked thru the door this summer to join the other sets that are brought each summer.
    My wife comes from a country where wealth is measured in how many sets of patio cushions you own....Transcushionvania or something

    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
