Common Questions and Answers - FAQ

 Salt and pepper shakers were first invented in the 1850s.

At that time, individual salt cellars and pepper mills were commonly used, but these were not as convenient or hygienic as the shaker design.

The first shakers were made of glass and had a perforated top for sprinkling the salt and pepper.

Over time, shakers have evolved into many different shapes, sizes, and materials, but they remain a popular way to dispense these essential seasonings.

Refilling a salt or pepper shaker is a simple process. First, remove the cap or stopper from the shaker.

If the shaker has a removable bottom, twist it off to access the container. Then, carefully pour the salt or pepper into the container, being careful not to spill it.

If necessary, use a funnel to make filling easier. Once the shaker is filled to your desired level, replace the cap or stopper and shake it gently to distribute the seasoning inside.

Absolutely! While salt and pepper are the most common seasonings used in shakers, you can use them to dispense any powdered spice or seasoning you like.

Some examples include garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chili flakes, cumin, and more. Just be sure to label your shakers so you know what’s inside!
