Salt and Pepper Shakers

Spice Shakers – Essential Kitchen Helpers and Stylish Accessories

It is hard to imagine everyday kitchen life without spice shakers. It is the spices that make a meal to what it is. Germans use them sparingly, but oriental countries such as India use spices in considerably greater quantities. Just the spice mixture for traditional Indian curry can contain up to 40 different components. But it isn’t necessary to include quite so many spices. Nonetheless, shakers are essential kitchen helpers and stylish accessories for any dining table.

Spices in the home cuisine – From paprika to cinnamon

  • Pepper: Few people know that white, green and black pepper come from the same plant, the Piper nigrum. The different colours of the peppercorns depend on the degree of ripeness. Worldwide, 180 000 tons of pepper are harvested. The Thomas Kitchen Pepper Grinder can grind any size grains thanks to the crushgrind grinder. But even other herbs can be used in the spice mill.
  • Paprika and chili: Chili and paprika come from the same plant genus, Capsicum. This gives the name to the ingredient Capsaicin. This is what makes chili so spicy. But it also enhances blood circulation and prevents colds. You will often find chopped chili in dishes such as chili con carne. But even sweets such as chocolate are refined with the firy addition of the spice.
  • Cinnamon: Did you know that cinnamon is made of tree bark? The cinnamon tree mainly grows on plantations and can become up to 20 metres tall. For the production of cinnamon, the bark of the cinnamon tree is freed of the outer layers and placed in the sun to dry. The bark then rolls up automatically, giving the spice is typical shape.
  • Salt: Strictly speaking, salt isn’t a spice. Salt is a mineral that consists mainly of sodium chloride. Salt is essential for human survival. However, the Nutrition Society recommends not eating more than six grams of salt daily. Suiting the salt and pepper grinder “Plus”, designer Norway Says – working for Muuto – created a salt and pepper keg. The keg adds a Japanese touch to your dining table.

How to – Storing Spices Correctly

Spices like to be stored in dry, cold, airtight and dark spaces. Therefore, it is good to have a spice rack in a cabinet. If possible, it should not be located above the stove or heater. Sealable and dark containers are suitable. In general, unground spices remain good for longer periods than ground ones. Processed spices quickly lose their aroma.
