Top Customer Reviews
Two weird things about it, though:
1) No instructions or guidance on HOW TO OPEN IT for filling. Normally, this is obvious in a shaker. But, the SWITCH S&P has several seams, all very tight, that could be places for opening it up. Some are on the top, some are on the bottom. It is not obvious, so I started prying a bit on the bottom seams with a penknife. It turns out that there are two SLIDING panels on the bottom. You slide each one to the side to reveal the two compartments. It would have been nice to have an arrow imprinted on each of the "secret" compartment doors to indicate how to open. I imagine that some people have broken the unit when trying to open it.
2) The Salt side has only 1 hole! And the pepper side has 3 holes! This is opposite the normal American standard, where the salt typically has more holes than the pepper. (Or, it may have the same # of holes.) This switch conforms to the European standard. ( I collect S&Ps, and I learned of this reversal in standards when I purchased a set from England, and the seller was referring to the one with one hole as the Salt, and the one with 3 holes as the Pepper. I questioned this, and in our discussions we each learned that we have opposite standards for the salt holes and for the pepper holes.) I think the Japanese also use the European standard. Most S&Ps are not labeled with "S" or "P", so they can be used either way. But a few do specify which is the salt, and which is the pepper -- as in the case of this SWITCH S&P.
So, I like this S&P both as a collectible and as a working unit. I don't like the fact that no guidance is given on how to open the compartments.
Such kind of crap plastics would deserve a 0,99 price.
I have bought it more for fun than usefulness. In other words I've bought it to be showed, but it looks so cheap that I am going to present it to my 5yrs old nephew.
