The OXO Good Grips Contoured Mess-Free Pepper Grinder dispenses from the top, for less mess on your counters. Slide the tab to choose from five grind-size options. Made from non-corrosive ceramic, the durable grinder mechanism won’t absorb flavors or odors, so it works for all types of peppercorns, salts, and whole spices like cumin, coriander and cloves. An airtight lid keeps spices fresh and dry while the non-slip grip on the base allows for easy, comfortable use. Our manual Grinder has stainless steel accents and a clear acrylic body, so you'll know when it's time to refill. Comes filled with black peppercorns. Hand wash only.
