Salt & Pepper / Spices

Hi, since we bought our trailer we have been using the little pick-nik type salt and pepper shakers; You know, the ones made out of cardboard, with plastic caps. Well, they work OK, but sometimes they pour too much and sometimes nothing comes out. [moisture got in?] I have been looking around for quite a long time and finally found something that I think we will like. I found this little combo salt and pepper shaker at Sports Chalet. One shaker holds both the salt and pepper in one unit and has spring loaded lids, that can only be opened one at a time. The markings on the lids are very hard to see, so I marked them with a Sharpy.

What great finds have you found for your salt and pepper needs, or other spices? [for your Airstream]

Note: the bottom image is what we have been using.

We picked up the salt and pepper moose and tent set along with the bears in the wagon napkin holder in Estes Park as souvenirs when we visited Rocky Mountain National Park. We also like to work small jigsaw puzzles on Airstream trips like this one from the park.

Hi, Carol; Those are neat! And just reminded me of the Airstream/Edsel salt and pepper set that my daughter bought for me. I had them in my trailer, but now they are on display in my computer cabinet. I didn't feel that they would be practical for use. [like my new one]

We've had one of these. They're tourist-y, but they work pretty good.

some of the travel shakers come with lastic lids that seal the air out.

a few grains of rice help absorb moisture in the container.

from wiki:
"ome people also add a desiccant, such as a few grains of uncooked rice,[28] or a saltine cracker[29] in salt shakers to absorb extra moisture and help break up clumps when anticaking agents are not enough."

I use a Swiss Advance salt shaker that I got from Chrystal Falls Trading Company a couple of years ago. For salt. For pepper I use a pepper mill.

They were available at more places when I first became aware of them, but not so much now. The snap shut design keeps salt from clumping and clogging the holes in the shaker. I'm pleased with it.

I wish I had something really clever to add to this, but I don't.

We picked up a smallish, combination sea salt/pepper grinder about 4 years ago that we love. We paid about $15 for it at a kitchen store of some sort. Never had a problem with the salt clogging or any other issues, very handy and goes well with the interior.

Combo Salt Pepper Grinder

Our Interstate came with a spice rack and I purchased individual (empty) bottles with brushed stainless lids somewhere. I buy frequently used spices/herbs in bulk at health foods stores, much cheaper than in boxes at the grocer, and refill as needed.

Carol, those are too cute! I love 'em! It's always fun to have something like that because it makes us smile. Thanks for sharing!

Bob, those are so cool! How fun that your daughter found them for you two. I would love to find something like that!

All the rest are great ideas too. Thanks everyone for sharing. It gives me a lot of different designs to ponder.

Take care.

We have a Cuisinart stainless steel spice rack. Matches the Airstream nicely! Google it to find a retailer near you. Prices vary - We bought ours from Canadian Tire on sale for 65% off (about $25).

Hey Kevin. I checked the spice rack out and that's really cool! Another great option!! Hey I noticed you had a sad face at the end of your posting. Is it because you lost a dog and now only have 2? I hope thats not the case. Take care.

We have a set of stainless steel salt & pepper shakers for the dinette, but we also have these cool spice tins with magnetic bottoms and lids that twist to pour or sprinkle holes...they are inexpensive and look great in the AS. Got ours at World Market, but we've seen them at Bed Bath & Beyond as well. We usually take them down form the range hood when we tow, but we've forgotten a few times and they've never fallen... They also come in a larger size that we use for non-dairy creamer and sweetener packets.
