If there is something that bonds mankind, it has to be salt and pepper. I don’t think there isn’t a single culture in the world that does not use salt and pepper in some form to add flavor to their food. In fact, salt was used as a currency in the olden times, and pepper was the reason why new sea routes were discovered to the Orient, inevitably discovering the Americas.
Thus, salt and pepper have a very important place in human culture, and there isn’t a dining table in the world that doesn’t have Salt and Pepper Shakers. With that being the case, geeks would be pleased to know that there are literally dozens of Salt and Pepper shakers which are either inspired by video games, or gadgets or just plain geekdom.
Here is a list of 16 Salt and Pepper Shakers designs that would definitely wet a Geek’s appetite.
Tetris Salt & Pepper Shaker Set
Tetris well could be the most played classic game along with Pacman and Super Mario, but the essence of the game makes it easier to design a salt and pepper shaker set. Thus, the Tetris Salt & Pepper Shaker Set is a cool way to show how much you love this game.
Space Invaders Salt & Pepper Shakers
Space Invaders is one of the other classic video games and this shaker here looks really cool. They come in yellow and red, and I guess you can take liberty to decide which one is for pepper and which one for salt. The Space Invaders Salt & Pepper Shaker Set could be a conversation starter.
