The Pepper Bird Mill
It’s a bird, it’s a...
...spice grinder? Yep, this toucan's a spice mill in disguise. Underneath all the feathers—or, well, mahogany, ash, maple, and walnut wood—you’ll find a patented ceramic grinding mechanism, tailor-made to crush peppercorns (and your toughest salt crystals) like nobody’s business. Just turn its head back and forth to sprinkle on the flavor, then pop off the wing when it’s time to refill. This one’s Danish designed, handcrafted with love, and has been a staple in dining rooms across Denmark since the '50s. (Oh, and wait till you meet its penguin pal.)
