While I love exotic flavors and seasonings, I also know the value of simpler seasonings like salt and pepper. I don't just grab the salt and pepper shaker when I cook. As a matter of fact, I don't even keep shakers in my home. I much prefer coarse sea salt and whole peppercorns when I cook. They taste so much better than anything that comes out of a sad little shaker, and I have found you actually use less when you grind them yourself. The flavor is fresher and more intense, which really helps to bring out the natural flavors in food. There is nothing better than a nice, thick Ribeye steak with some freshly ground pepper and a nice sprinkle of sea salt. Yum! When using high-quality salt and pepper, you really don't need anything else, more often than not.
If you choose to use coarse sea salt and whole peppercorns, which I highly recommend, one essential piece of equipment is a good salt and pepper grinder. Gone are the days of using a mortar and pestle, thank goodness! There are many grinders on the market, ranging in price and quality. This is definitely one case where cheaper does not mean better. For a long time, I used separate salt and pepper grinders, and I found that they could be a pain to fill and quite messy. They were also difficult to assemble at times. This led to spillage and waste of good salt and pepper.
