Splurge vs. Steal: Salt and Pepper Shakers

Cheeky salt and pepper dispensers can add some pizazz to your tabletop. This week’s splurge and steal highlight just two of the many quirky sets out there.


Alessi’s Salo Salt and Peppino Pepper mills are fun pieces that can play up even the most traditional table settings. Standing five inches tall, the mills are $54.99 each.

Bed Bath & Beyond has locations in Virginia, DC and Maryland.


This interlocking salt-and-pepper duo from Tabletop is just $26. Called “hugs salt and pepper,” the set separates when needed for seasoning but looks best in an embrace.
