Win stylish OXO salt and pepper grinders worth over £40

Salt and pepper grinders from OXO

Salt and pepper grinders from OXO

Imagine these in the centre of your table for a smart dinner party or celebration meal. OXO’s stylish salt and pepper grinders not only look dapper, but they’re pretty clever too.

They have five versatile settings from fine to coarse and dispense from the top avoiding crumbs of salt and pepper going all over your table or worktop.

The clear acrylic body means you can easily tell when you need to refill, and a non-slip grip on the turning mechanism makes them a cinch to use.

They’re worth £20.43 a piece, but I have a pair to giveaway to one lucky Feeding Boys reader!



There is one main way to enter and several ways to get bonus entries.  You must leave a separate comment for each bonus entry otherwise they will not be counted.

1. Mandatory. Leave a comment below telling me what style of cook you are.

2. For a second chance to win tweet a link to this giveaway as follows: Win stylish OXO salt and pepper grinders worth £40 @cookingkt #win #prize
Then leave a second comment saying you’ve done so telling me your Twitter ID.

3. Follow me @cookingkt on Twitter and comment to tell me you have done so.

4. And finally you can get another bonus entry by liking the Feeding Boys and a Firefighter page on Facebook too, not forgetting to head back here and comment to tell me you have done so.


Good Luck!


This giveaway is open to all readers over 18 with a UK postal address.  The winner will be chosen using an online randomiser and announced in a subsequent post.

I am running this competition on behalf of OXO who will be sending the prize out to the lucky winner. Their decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.


Closing date: 10pm Friday 30th December 2011
If you want to buy these grinders they’re available from Lakeland and Amazon. Visit for more details. I’m a huge fan of the OXO good grips range – really solid and practical but looks great too.

  32. Dorothy Hardy says:

    I am an experimental cook as my hubby has been diagnosed as a coeliac. This means he cannot tolerate gluten or wheat and most of the GF bread and pastry leaves much to be desired. I am getting better with each batch and my pastry is really good, so I am told. Rooks, my local butcher does GF sausages and they are fantastic so we are getting there!!

I like the scales out, and everything measured into separate bowls, i’m a bit of a cookery programme cook, you know where they have the right amount of everything measured out in endless bowls and you watch it thinking ‘how much washing up\?!’ but it makes it more fun. Although with two toddlers it may start organised but it certainly doesn’t end that way!!

    I am a creative cook – I always cook from scratch and use fresh ingredients! Luckily I was brought up by a stay at home mum, who always cooked from scratch too – everything was home made, even the veg came out of the garden! She taught me to cook and I hold many of her recipes in my head! We hardly ever weigh out ingredients either – we can just tell by pouring and looking and tasting! Me and my four young children (aged 4, 5, 6 and 7) all love vegetables, even sprouts! My children still enjoy their treats though and we regularly bake cakes and cookies together!

    I’m a student so i suppose if you call putting food in the microwave cooking then I would say I am a down-to-earth cook.

  226. Katherine Coldicott says:

    I love to cook but only when I’ve got the time. Hate to be rushed. Mon – Fri we plan the meals and Sat & Sun is when I cook what I really want to cook.

    What type of a cook am I ..
    Well I can bake, grill and fry,
    Serving up quick meals for my 2 sons & my guy,
    Trying to make a little go a long way, as food prices are so high,
    It’s all a juggling act looking after kids, a dog & needing to stand over the hob, temperatures get high,
    I cant follow a recipe, I wont pretend I’m Delia Smith and lie,
    I’m just a Mum who never has enough time so ready meals is what I buy!!!

    I tend to start with a recipe and then evolve it into something that is barely recognisable but (I think) far more exciting with my cooking. I have almost the same base for everything though – tomatoes, garlic, chilli and onions. Can’t go wrong with that!

  265. JAN says:

    It depends on my mood -sometimes I am just in the mood to bake and therefore get cracking and porduce lots of dishes, other times I can barely bring myself to make beans on tast. If I have guests I often make a casserole (or some other ‘oven’ dish) because once it’s in the oven I can relax and if I attempt anything complicated when I have people, I just end up totally stressed!!

  266. Kathleen Connolly says:

    I’m a mixture of types of cook – tonight it was a throw it all in the pot type cook with plenty of herbs and spices. I also play around with a recipe until I like it adding my own ingredients and more or less of what is suggested,

  267. angiemann says:

    I am the type of cook who just looks in the fridge and chucks things together-it usually works! Unless i am having people over for dinner (ie Boxing Day extravaganza!) where i will find some decent recipes to follow x

    I have to have a recipe to follow… and I follow it exactly. If the conversions aren’t exactly the same that annoys me a little because I need to know how much I’m supposed to use!

    I’m quite inventive and I love to take other people’s recipes and adapt them. I’m vegetarian and coeliac so I often have to change recipes quite a bit to suit my diet. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t – but that’s half the fun!
