Pepper is an essential seasoning for cooking and is used frequently in every household.
Powdered pepper sold in ground form is convenient because it can be sprinkled on quickly, but it loses much of its flavor*.
On the other hand, if you buy whole pepper and grind it in a pepper mill, it takes a little more time, but the flavor is definitely better.
The use of a pepper mill is recommended because it is an easy way to improve the flavor and aroma of everyday dishes!
In this issue, we would like to introduce you to one such pepper mill, a grinder shaker from OXO, a well-known cookware manufacturer.
Many of OXO’s kitchen utensils are stylish looking, so they will improve the appearance of your kitchen!
Features of the “Grinder Shaker” pepper mill from OXO
Size: Height approx. 6inch, width approx. 2.4inch
The OXO Grinder Shaker is useful not only for grinding pepper, but also for shaking salt!
There is a hole in the top, so when shaking salt, turn it upside down as shown in the picture below.
The lower part is a mill to grind pepper.
The coarseness of the pepper can be adjusted 5 coarseness levels by turning the knob on the side.
Most pepper mills with adjustable coarseness control are designed to adjust the coarseness by feel: turning the adjustment knob clockwise gradually makes it finer, and counterclockwise gradually makes it coarser.
However, the Oxo pepper mill has 5 coarseness levels, so you can effortlessly adjust the coarseness to your liking!
In terms of replenishing pepper and salt, the pepper was easy to put in with a wide mouth, but the salt was a little difficult to put in, and I felt that there was a possibility of spilling it.
If you are refilling the shaker from a smaller bag, such as the one pictured above, there may be no problem, but be careful when refilling from a larger bag, such as a 1 kg bag.
When refilling the shaker from a large bag, it is safe to use a spoon or something similar to scoop the contents before refilling the shaker.
Grinding pepper with the “Grinder Shaker” pepper mill from OXO
To grind pepper in a grinder shaker, rotate and grind the part containing the salt as shown in the video below.
It is easy to hold and grinds smoothly.
The picture below shows how the pepper was ground while adjusting the coarseness.
It can be easily adjusted from powder to coarsely ground, and can be used for a variety of dishes.
If you want to transfer the pepper flavor slowly, such as in stewed dishes, coarsely ground pepper is recommended, and if you want to add a stronger aroma to the finished dish, powdered ground pepper is recommended!
It also makes a big difference with regard to texture and pungency.
The more coarsely ground, the crispier the texture and stronger the pungency, so it is fun to cook while adjusting the coarseness in various ways!
Review of OXO Pepper Mill “Grinder Shaker”
Easy to use.resource: https://review.rakuten.co.jp/
The only drawback is that it is not washable, but the salt and pepper It fits in one bottle so it doesn’t take up much space.
Convenient shaker for salt and pepper (whole).Resource: https://www.amazon.co.jp/
It is equipped with a high-grade and quite solid mill.
The coarseness can be selected from 5 levels, which is convenient.
The only thing is that the pepper part is quite large and the whole shaker is much larger than expected.
It holds about 4 bags of S&B black pepper refills.
It was a replacement for the one I had been using because it was no longer cutting well. At first I thought I would just use it as a container, but it is much easier to hold than I expected and the size of the grains can be changed arbitrarily, making it functional. The moderate size of the bowl makes it look like an interior decoration on the table. It was a good purchase.Resource: https://paypaymall.yahoo.co.jp/
