Salt/PepperI wanted some big salt/pepper shakers and these are perfect. In addition, the color is gorgeous. I have already washed them and fixing to add the spices. Definite thumbs up.
5Beautiful, large, vintage looking shakers!I was very pleasantly surprised with these charming, salt & pepper shakers. They have an old fashioned look that is reminiscent of antique Apothecary jars. The cheerful, solidly built, red glass shakers are a marvelous accent in my kitchen! The holes (as some other reviews also mentioned) are a tad-bit small... but nothing a slim, metal, rat-tail file couldn't take care of. In a few minutes I easily enlarged the holes enough so that they shake their contents freely & easily. I did use fine ground black pepper. I had NO issues with the salt or pepper spilling out from the lid, or making a mess from the lid not fitting well (as other reviews stated).I found these salt & pepper shakers are very nice, hand size shakers & they hold 8 ounces (nice & big) - so there's no need to be constantly refilling them... which I really like.
5Beautiful Retro Red GlassThese are really beautiful salt and pepper shakers. Very vintage looking. The red glass is a rich ruby red, yet still transparent enough to easily see the salt and pepper through the glass. This makes distinguishing one from the other on the table quickly, very easy. The pepper, being dark, enhances the deep rich ruby color of the glass. But the salt, being light, actually makes the glass look lighter ... like an orangey bright red. Really cool old school look!
5Red Glass Salt and Pepper ShakersI bought sever sets of these so that I always have clean ones handy. They are beautiful and I like being able to see what's inside. The reason for 4 star instead of 5 is because the holes in the lids are too small. What I did was use an awl to enlarge 4 holes evenly spaced. That did the trick. Now the salt and pepper flow very well. And of course they are red.
4Retro Red LookThese shakers are cool. They are big salt and pepper shakers. Probably better suited for the stovetop than the kitchen table. The dimensions given in the description are wrong. I don't get why they post inaccurate information. But for those interested, I took my own measurements. Each shaker is 2.25 X 2.25 X 4.5 inches (L X W X H). I love the translucent red glass. It is easy to tell which one is salt and which is pepper since it is see-through. Easy to open and fill. A red lovers delight.
5Cheap lids don't screw on properlyYea way big. Hugely big. Not for the dinner table. But that's my fault for not recognizing the dimensions for what they are. The lids are really super cheap. They don't screw on properly and salt and pepper leak from the side of the lids. The lids don't seem deep enough. The red glass is very nice, thick and heavy. Too bad they used cheap lids. Don't waste your money.
2Faulty LidMy husband wanted a large pair of salt and pepper shakers that didn't constantly have to be refilled. We found these and ordered them and they are very nice looking and exactly what he wanted until he put salt in the shaker. The lid does not fit and just spins and spins. If you use the salt shaker you have to hold the lid on so you don't get a waterfall of salt in your food. Would definitely not buy these again. If hubby can't fix we are throwing them away because we don't want to pass them along to anyone else.
1Salt leaks out and makes a big ole messUpdate: My original review is below. But I've taken my review from 4 stars to one, because I can't take the mess the salt shaker makes anymore. Now that I've been using these I realize that the salt shaker top must not fit properly. Every time I turn it upside down to shake salt, it leaks out around the bottom of the lid. So I have salt granules on my counter tops or the stove, or the table all the time. I am ordering a set of cheaper salt shaker and will give these to Goodwill with my apologies to whomever buys them. I See now that I am reading back over the reviews that a lot of other people have had the same problem.*Note, the shaker that is leaking is NOT the one I made the holes bigger on, so I didn't damage this myself.Pepper holes are too small - but i fixed itI love these shakers. They are beautiful and large, but not too large for everyday use. The only reason I took a star away is the size of the holes on the pepper shaker. They are the same size as the salt. This may not be a problem for some, but I like the course ground pepper. I decided to risk the expensive shakers and attempt to fix the problem. First I tried hammering (gently) a small nail into each hole to make it a little larger. I still didn't get much pepper out. So I went big time. I got a much bigger nail and drove it into every other hole. This worked. I get the right amount of pepper. And I actually like the alternate big hole/little hold design.
1Love the colorI love the pop of red in my kitchen. And I really like the way these are made. Easy to handle and they work well. They were packaged well and came quickly
5Does it's duty but was not expecting yellow on the bottom?!My kitchen is done in red and black so I am always on the look out for some unique things to match. I purchased these because of the color and they are pretty big. I was really disappointed with the color of them. They are a nice red until you get to about 1/2 of inch away from the bottom and then they turn into a yellow orange color. I should of sent them back but I was having company over and decided that perhaps after I filled them you wouldn't notice. WRONG. It made it more noticeable. I wish I would have returned them.
