Hi friends. We often get questions about our salt and pepper shakers. Yes, they are big. No, they do not have screw on lids. Instead, they come with a rubber gasket to create a nice. airtight seal. If you are unsure how to use the gasket to ensure the strongest possible seal read below! Or watch this quick video.
1. Make sure the gasket is placed in the ridge on the body of the salt or pepper shaker. Move it gently so that it sits very near the top of that ridge, so little to no space exists between the top edge of the ridge and the rubber gasket.
2. Start with filling the shakers half way, and test the connection of the gasket over a plate or bowl before using on food to ensure that seal is strong.
3. If the connection is not as strong as you would like, turn the gasket so the ridged side faces the shaker.
4. Give the lid a solid smack when you place it on the body.
That's it! Enjoy your new farmhouse shakers!
