I have had these products for about a month now and have not had any issues. The salt and pepper mills adjust to a fine grain or coarse grain very easily. I purchased these products to allow me to work with raw meat in one hand and have a clean free hand to season the meat with the mills. They are functioning great and I would recommend them. The only downfall to the product is the small capacity of salt or pepper the mills can hold. This isn't much of an issue because it is very easy to refill. It does require 6 batteries but a friend of mine told me that the batteries last for an extended period of time. They will not leave any grain residue on my counter when I store them as long as I shake them gently before I set them down. All in all, I would recommend the product and I'm glad I made the purchase
Best Answer:I wish I could help you, but this was a gift to my sister for Christmas, and evidently she either hasn't used up either the salt or pepper, or she figured it out. I hope it isn't hard to figure it out because even if it came with directions, it is likely they got tossed. Good luck.
It actually separates between the metal piece on the bottom and the clear part where you can see the pepper or salt. You just turn counter-clockwise to open. It's relatively simple once you've done it once or twice.
Twist the bottom Pull the bottom with the batteries out. Take the battery holder off of the bottom salt/pepper container. Look at the side and you will see a lock ad unlock symbol. Twist in the direction you want.
The long section above the pepper twists off and you can fill it slowly from the top. The only problem is that the amount of pepper that you see is just what it holds. I would have to fill it every week.
