Salt and Pepper Grinder Set
The pepper mill side just fell apart. I should have read the reviews before I bought it. It's a piece of junk.

More trouble than its worth
End caps are very difficult to get off and tops become messy after use so when you take the caps off salt and / or pepper goes all over. The Pepper grinder broke after 1 month of use. The rubber seal came loose and then completely fell off making the grinder inoperable.Now its just a salt grinder that takes up too much space. We are throwing it away and buying two seperate grinders.

2 Broke :(
My first salt/pepper grinder set stopped working/broke (pepper grinding side); I called, they sent a free replacement & now the pepper grinding side is broken on it as well. Irritating.

Worst grinder ever.
Like others have said this grinder is awful. We purchased it because of it's sleek lines and dual function of salt and pepper in-one. When we got it home we soon realized that while the design is beautiful the functionality is sorely lacking. I've broken several nails, knife tips and other various cutlery trying to pry of the end caps. The pepper grinder stopped working after about a month and residual salt stays in the unit so every time you pry off the top you are then covered in salt. For $20 I expected much better quality.

NOW I love it
Thank you Lisa 7 and Sarahchi. I had the same issues others did with getting the caps off and then I forgot how to fill it and didn't have the instructions (if it came with any). I pulled off one plastic tab on each side and ground them flat with a dremel. The caps now come off very nicely! I actually did figure out how to fill them but the silver ends stuck so I thought I was doing it wrong, thanks to sarahchi I realized it was the correct way and I was able to unscrew them and fill it. I was medium happy with it before, now I am VERY happy. I have had mine more than a year and nothing has broken on it. I use it as my kitchen salt and pepper grinder.

HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM WITH THE END CAPS!!!
The end caps are terribly difficult to take off but I FOUND A SOLUTION: simply break off 4 out of the 8 plastic clips that are attached to the insides of each end cap with a pair of pliers; just bend them inwards/outwards until they break off and viola!--NOW the end caps come off easily. The original design had too many of these clips and were therefore causing too much friction which made it almost impossible to easily remove the end caps before. I LOVE THE PRODUCT now that I can easily remove the end caps--EASY FIX. I gave this product four stars because I find that people usually go straight to the questionable reviews to find out what's wrong about a product. Other than this small but easily fixable design flaw, the product works great!!

Works great until it breaks
I have owned 2 of these grinders. Each time after about a year the plastic piece above the grinder breaks. It is convenient to have both in one but the design with the plastic piece for a pepper grinder is awful. Will not purchase a 3rd.

Broke after 2 months
Do not buy this grinder. While the design is very modern, the end caps are a PAIN to take off and the small plastic disc that adjusts the size of pepper grind fell off within 1-2 months! So now we have a salt grinder, that holds peppercorns on the other end. What a waste of $20!
