Menu's Bottle Grinders, designed by Norm Architects, are not your traditional looking grinders, and that’s the whole plan. To create something noticeable and to change a well-known thing into something brand new – as a way to encourage people to try new things.
"We wanted to steer far away from the predictable grinders and instead encourage people to experiment with spices, grains, seeds and all the other modern cuisine ingredients. The new powerful ceramic grinder allows you to be more creative," says designer Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen from Norm.
The grinders have a powerful ceramic grinder, and they are very easy to operate. You simply open them, fill them with delicious ingredients and close them again. Simple as that.
The unique, inverted design ensures that salt, pepper, pumpkin seeds, dried blueberries, walnuts – or whatever you fill them with - only sprinkle out when you grind, leaving no trace on the table or in the kitchen.
The Grinders are shaped like shaped like a bottle which is also important to the whole experience. "Sometimes people need a bit of a surprise in order to change their habits," says designer Kasper Rønn. Menu bottles have a rounded base that fits perfectly into the hands as well as a rubber surface that's easy to grip and to clean. They come in a range of beautiful soft Scandinavian colours that makes it easy to colour code according to ingredients.
