Summer has arrived. Which means plenty of time for entertaining with long, lounging dinners and BBQs in between rain showers. Whether you’re trying to upgrade your own kitchen’s aesthetic or simply trying to intimidate your dinner guests with your impeccable taste, check out these gorgeous salt and pepper mills.

Made in Co. Tipperary by one of The Irish Workshop’s newest makers—woodturner Johnny McCarthy—these mills are the business both in form and function.

Pro tip from Johnny: Never turn a pepper mill in both directions (don’t worry, we all do it) – it damages the mechanism. Keep turning the mill in the one direction to ensure that your pepper mill lasts longer and performs better.

    The disposable pepper mills in super valu are great. Grind much better than the fancy yoke I bought in Stock a while back

      You should try and make one , or a pair . or look up how it’s done , you might be a bit more enlightened as to the intricacies of the process . ….just saying .,

    They are dear but to be fair there is probably a few hours work in them at least, so good on him, that said i also really like the disposable supervalu ones
