8. Chilli Pepper Mill
We wrote about the popularity of these chilli flake grinders on the blog back in September.
These mills are made by the renowned manufacturer Cole & Mason who offer a lifetime guarantee on all of their products.
This particular type differs from your regular salt and pepper mill as it sits upside down on your table.
Made from high quality crystal clear acrylic with a red soft touch band and with an easily adjustable ceramic spring loaded mechanism this makes a stylish yet practical addition to any table.
Note: Definitely looks a bit smarter than an old bottle of tabasco sitting on the dinner party table!
Drying chillies can be a tricky process risking either mold and rotting fruit if done in natural air or burning them to a crisp if using the oven. Drying chillies with one of these dehydrators could not be simpler. Simple load up the trays, switch it on and come back in a few hours.
