Let's do the twist.

Who knew sprinkling on a lil’ spice (and adding a pop of color to the kitchen or dining table) could be such a treat? These eye-catching grinders come in a spread of shades and sizes, all ready to bring a boost of flavor to your dishes, then sit pretty on the counter when they’re done. Inside, each mill’s got a trusty ceramic grinding mechanism that lets you pick your preferred coarseness—perfect for crushing even your toughest peppercorns. And on the outside, you’ll find sturdy stainless steel all over. When you’re ready to get the salt or pepper flowing, just twist the top with a quick flick of the wrist.

If you think these dynamos look familiar, you’re onto something: They’re from a whole lineup of home goods dreamed up by Milan-based designer George Sowden (color-happy travel tumblers, swoon-worthy storage tins, and easy-brewing coffee pots, to name a few).
