Salt & Pepper NEX GEN Shaker Set
SET OF NEX GEN SALT AND PEPPER CONCRETE SHAKERS: MIXED
Measuring approximately 2" in diameter x 2.5" tall, this is the next generation of our recycled concrete shaker set. I built upon the concept of our original shaker set, but I made a few improvements with this design.
As functional as this set is unique, we've incorporated larger capacities; Culinarium Concrete embossing, as well as two different sized apertures for salt and pepper distribution. Upon close inspection you will notice a "+" and a "-" embossed into the base vessels. Each of these signs indicate the different flow rates that the apertures will yield.
Each shaker is composed of a cap/plug which fits accurately and securely into each base thanks to very narrow tolerances as well as the compression of an FDA approved silicone O-ring. It is noteworthy to mention that the cap/plug only comes off if you are filling the shaker with salt or pepper. You DO NOT have to remove the plug/cap to shake your salt or pepper. The distribution of salt or pepper is facilitated by the different sized apertures which have been cast into the base.
All of our items have corked bases for protection. All of our items are one of a kind. Each unit is cast in a hand made mold for about a week. We then hand burnish each, and then apply two coats of FDA approved linseed oil.
This item is not composed of typical concrete. It has taken us years to perfect this mix design. All of our concrete items are composed of an advanced cementitious mix which utilizes extremely small particulate, as well as recycled granite and marble dust that we source locally from the countertop industry...The result is an incredibly strong, smooth, and tactile surface that is more similar in physical characteristics to ceramic or aluminum than it is to concrete!
Please note: While our concrete mix design yields an aesthetically predictable product, our concrete can display slight variation in color and in texture. This creation will only get better with age, developing rich character and patina as it ages. Because cement cures at an asymptotic rate, all of our concrete products actually get MORE durable as the years go by!
