Light Up the Night with Salt & Pepper!

Perfect Little Gift for the Cookout Enthusiast

By Cari Martens

Is there someone on your holiday gift list who loves to go camping but always forgets to pack the salt and pepper—AND the lantern? Well, we have the perfect gift for that forgetful someone.

It’s the Mini Lantern Salt and Pepper Shaker set by Grill Tek. These babies light up your table and season your food. Ideal for that predawn breakfast of bacon and eggs cooked over an open fire. You can’t eat eggs without salt. And it’s hard to eat eggs in the dark. This product solves both issues.

Each lantern/shaker features three ultra-bright white LED bulbs to illuminate nighttime cookouts or outdoor parties. (Built-in reflectors amplify the light coverage.) Plus each one has an easy to fill built-in salt/pepper reservoir with flow-selector dials that adjust from sprinkle to pour.

Made of long-lasting ABS plastic, each lantern/shaker measures 6 3/4 inches tall. Uses 8 AA batteries total (not included). Available from HomeWetBar.com and other online retailers for around 20 bucks.
