We use a lot of pepper in our home. I was buying the McCormick’s pepper that is a one time use grinder. This can get expensive and the jars are not reusable . When I saw this I thought it would be a good solution and can be reused. I like that this is stylish, easy to use and can be adjusted to the size of the grind you prefer. Comes apart and goes to easily and requires 4 AA batteries,,which are not include. This would be may only complaint. It lights up so you can see exactly how much pepper you are using..which I think is a nice feature. It called a pepper grinder but you can use for salt if you choose to. Easy to clean the outside with a damp cloth. can not submerse in water due to the batteries. This would make a great housewarming gift , first apartment gift, hostess gift, or a shower gift. I received this product free. All my reviews are based on my own experience and evaluation of the product so that others can benefit in finding quality products that meet their needs & expectations.
