Sprinkles of powdery, pre-ground pepper and iodized salt are no way to season your culinary creations. Treat yourself to the bold flavors of the good stuff: fresh ground salt and pepper bursting with flavor, courtesy of Vic Firth. From the same company that makes the industry-standard drumsticks and percussion instruments come these precision-crafted salt and pepper mills, handmade in Maine. Ranging from traditional styles in homey wood finishes to sleek, chic colorful numbers that add spice to your kitchen before, during and after cooking, these professional-quality mills are built to last a lifetime.
Vic Firth’s love of woodturning led the former Boston Symphony Orchestra timpanist to embark on two post-music careers: manufacturer of industry-standard drumsticks for percussionists, and maker of some of the world’s best salt and pepper mills. Sample the latter at this sale, which features a dozen models created in conjunction with superchef Mario Batali. Take your pick of sizes and colors, with most rendered in maple or cherry wood — although there are a few stainless-steel options, too.
Get choppin’ at this one-stop culinary-goods sale, which features chef’s knives, cleavers and 10-piece block sets from nearly a half-dozen brands, including Zwilling JA Henckels and Swissmar. Or perhaps you’d prefer some Mepra cooking tools, or a Mason Cash mixing bowl. They’re on offer, along with glass bakeware, blenders and pepper mills, among other treats.
