I guess the seller knew that there may be a few potential bidders too embarrassed to actually place a bid on them. It's a private auction. :O)

Personally, I'm partial to aluminum salt and pepper shakers. Sometimes when I'm really working the pepper hard, say when I am preparing a pepper-crusted seared ahi, I notice a bit of flex. No problem with the aluminum shakers at all -- stiff and responsive. Of course, I am worried about fatigue since I have heard some of the utra-light salt and pepper shakers are designed to last just 2 or 3 cooking seasons.

I have yet to try the carbon-fiber salt and pepper shakers. I'd love to add a set to the stable.
Thanks - that cracked me up.(nm)cdale02

Did you ever notice that your 'seared Ahi' has a lightly bit of bitter/tart taste to it?

That's because of the susceptability of Aluminum to the corrosive effects of salt.

This maybe a good time to try CF?

no no no!Dont you know anything!the bull

Ti is the way to go -for the salt because it wont corrode!
It does not matter with the pepper!

Yeah, but aren't the Scandium shakers even MORE prone to fatigue?
