Gravity Pro BPA-Free Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set by #Ozeri #review


Do you like freshly ground salt and pepper on your food? I know I do because it makes everything taste so much better than the regular stuff. If you want an elegant set to do the job of grinding your peppercorns and salt the Ozeri Gravity Pro BPA-Free Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set is the way to do it.


This is a beautiful set that comes packaged in an attractive and sturdy box which would be great for gift giving. Right away I was impressed with how modern these shakers were. The black and white outside coating material of them are smudge proof and they also have a comfortable smooth feel when using them.


The grinders each run by four AA batteries and you get eight batteries included with the set. This is great so you don't have to go out and purchase batteries right away. To fill the grinder all you do is press the button on the bottom part to turn off the battery dispensing operation. This is a nice feature so you don't have salt and pepper spilling all over when refilling.

Then you invert the grinder so the battery compartment is on the top, and the clear storage chamber easily pulls off. This is where you fill your spices. It's kind of a small space to fill but I didn't have a problem doing so by using a small funnel.


It's a pain when you need two hands to manually grind pepper and salt on my fresh veggies and food, but you don't have to worry about that with the Ozeri Gravity Pro. It only takes one hand to use! Just invert the grinder and it automatically activates the grinder. There is even an LED light that turns on when when you are using it.


The lids on the grinders are uniquely shaped and are nice to have on the grinders when not in use to keep clean. Additionally, you can turn a small screw on the top of the inside of the grinder to adjust to coarse or finer seasonings. You won't knock them over very easily either because they have a nice weight to them.

I'm happy with my new Ozeri Gravity Pro BPA-Free Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set and think they are about the nicest set I've seen!

If you are interested they can be found on Amazon for $25.36 as of this date.

Summer Blogging Challenge ~ Summer Eats! @SocialInsiders #SocialSummer


It's still summer and the weather has been hot, dry and humid. Don't get me wrong, I look forward to the summer months but read somewhere that last month (July) was the hottest in world history! That's a record that is kind of scary to me. What would we do without air conditioning and if there were no electricity? Thankfully, it has rained a few times recently and everything outdoors looks so much better. Today it cooled off a little also.

Who wants to cook when it's hot - not me! I've only used the oven a few times this summer when it was absolutely necessary. Heck, I don't even like to cook much at all when it's hot! Munching on fresh fruit and veggies is so much healthier. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this on my blog before, but I haven't eaten meat in a few years. I'm not a strict vegetarian but really don't care for beef or pork so I quit eating it. I'll eat chicken breast once in a while but that's about it. So when my husband wants to barbecue hamburgers or pork chops he makes enough for himself and our son. By the way, one of my twin sons quit eating meat also. The boys are 25 years old so it's not like they are little any more.

What appeals to me in the summer are salads and everything that you can find in the garden. I've been eating corn on the cob, watermelon and salads recently. I really like pasta salad and usually make it when our relatives get together for dinners. It's really easy to make and I love the different colors of the rotini that you use. The recipe is below if you've never tried it before. You can put other veggies in it and make to your own style.
PASTA SALAD RECIPE

1 -16 oz. box of tri-colored rotini
1 can black olives (sliced)
4 -5 cherry tomatoes or 1 large tomato (cut up in small pieces)
1 small onion (diced)
1 pepper (red or green) diced
1 regular bottle of Italian dressing
McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning (about 3 tbsps.or more to taste)

Cook rotini according to instructions on box.  Drain and rinse well with cold water.  Put in a medium bowl.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.   Cool in refrigerator.

Labor Day Coffee Giveaway! (Ends 9/5)

Brooklyn Bean Roastery Bold Coffee Variety Box
Bold Variety Pack
In Brooklyn, they know a thing or two about being bold and when they say this coffee is bold you betta believe it's bold. To get a perfect dark roast, the beans are removed from the roasters right before they get to their peak roasting point. This helps them retain their sharp floral notes and all the smoky goodness without any of the burnt aftertaste. When these beans with big-time flavor are brewed through their patented tension-based filters, they create a Cup of Joe that will delight lovers of good strong coffee.

The Bold Variety Pack includes: Cyclone, Express-o, French Roast, Fuhgeddaboutit.
