Crowdsourcing Mornings: Serpentine Salt & Pepper Mill

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Serpentine Salt & Pepper Mill is a new kitchen accessory offering unique style and beauty generated by Nature itself. Serpentine Salt & Pepper Mill is made from semiprecious stone serpentine, a natural material that saves the taste and aroma of spices required for cooking tasty and original food.  We are all fond of cooking tasty food which implies adding spices to render our dishes particularly delicious and fragrant. The use of Serpentine Salt & Pepper Mill cooking accessories will turn the adding of spices into a beautiful and impressive part of your culinary creative endeavors. Creativity in cooking is born by the right mix of products and spices, the cook’s skill, high-quality ingredients, elegant presentation and stylish service.

Serpentine (from Latin serpens, i.e. snake) is a semiprecious stone whose outcrops occur in the US, Canada, Norway, China, Great Britain, New Zealand, and Russia. This is a unique and very beautiful gem. Its major deposits are in California where it is a part of an official symbol.  According to legends, dishware from serpentine improves the taste and fragrance of food, enhances the effects of medicines, and neutralizes poison. These beautiful tales may be hard to believe, but one thing is indisputable and irresistible – the stone’s beauty.   Serpentine Salt & Pepper Mills manufacturing facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art tools from ceramics, stainless steel, and high-strength plastics. One can choose the desired mills case color from 4 versions of the stone.

“It was probably a mere coincidence that we decided to bring together a natural stone and a mill. We wanted to turn out a product that would be not just a beautiful thing, but also part and parcel of our daily life and a pleasant object to look at,” says Dmitry Feoktistov, the author of the Serpentine Salt & Pepper Mill project.  The Serpentine Salt & Pepper Mill team includes craftsmen, designers, engineers, and amateur and professional cooks seeking a beautiful and well-made tool for their work.   “We have long been attracted by the stunning, unearthly beauty of this natural stone. We wish to bring its beauty to each home not as a souvenir or a trinket. We’ve started to manufacture products that will combine the stone’s beauty and functionality. We sincerely believe that you will like this,” says Dmitry Feoktistov.
