Salt and Pepper Shakers Nendo

Matéria

PAR

AGGLOMERATED CORK, GLASS
 
A dash, a pinch, a shake is all it takes for magic to happen: an ingredient is revived, a mixture is set to rights, a concoction becomes a delicacy. Upstaged by other more flamboyant players, it is nevertheless the quiet alchemy of salt and pepper that spells delight or disaster in the kitchen.
Used wisely they rally the senses, titillate the taste buds and bring a dish to completion. however just as easily, they can crush a delicate flavour, overwhelm the palate and consign a meal to the dustbin.
With par you can keep these potent elements in check: sealed in by the cork stopper-like basis, the transparent glass body leaves them visible at all times.
Fitting comfortably into your hand, these shakers rely on the cork component for upright support, a good hold and an airtight control of the content.
