Salt and pepper millsSalt and pepper mills
A sprinkle of salt and pepper can magically transform a meal from the mundane to the marvellous, but you really don 't want to leave the plastic containers on the table. Make an impression at dinner with a set of our salt and pepper mills. There 's something about the process of grinding the pepper and salt over your food, instead of just tipping some from a pot, that feels more refined. There are manual mills and electric ones too, and all in a variety of colours and materials so you can find the pair that works with your crockery.
We have plenty of other items in our kitchenware range that will help you create a dining room you can have pride in. Start with our table cloths. From the plain and understated, to the bold and beautiful, you can find coverings for any occasion, even wipe clean table cloths that are perfect for informal dining with the kids. You 'll also want to make sure you have plenty of placemats on hand, so you can minimise spillages to the table. They also let you forego the table cloth entirely, keeping hot plates off the table so you 're not left with any unsightly rings on sensitive table tops. Napkins are another often overlooked accessory at the dinner table. While they may not be used for everyday eating, when you 're putting on a dinner party or having guests for tea they can make the meal feel that extra bit special.
The next important part is cutlery. From modern designs to traditional, you 'll find cutlery sets that suit your aesthetics, and of course there 's nothing wrong with having a special set of cutlery for when guests come round.
If you 're regularly entertaining people, then it 's also worth investing in some extra drinking glasses because it can be embarrassing to have to offer water or other drinks in an old mug! Also, serving bowls are a good idea for meals made up of many parts so that guests can help themselves to portions of a suitable size.
Want to take the headache out of picking and choosing? We also have dinner sets that include plates, cups, cutlery and more, so you can get everything sorted in one go.
