Pepper ball spices up a normal meal

Mr. Gadget

Gadget: The Pepper Ball by Chef'N.

How it works: The Pepper Ball is a round, plastic, hand-held pepper grinder that may be filled with test tubes of different blends of whole pepper.

The pepper is ground by squeezing together the Pepper Ball's two handles.

The ball comes in two sizes.

Store: Most gourmet cooking stores carry the Pepper Ball. I picked this one up at Macy's.

Cost: Under $15.

Overall: The Pepper Ball is easy to use and adds a more intense flavor to foods. You may add different pepper blends, such as a Cajun blend, to the Pepper Ball to spice up anything from salads and pastas to soups.

I like the ball's clear plastic design, which makes it easy to view what's inside.

The Pepper Ball may be used both on the dinner table or while you cook. And for the kosher kitchen, Chef'N also makes a Salt Ball.

The Pepper Ball may not be as decorative as some traditional hand-held pepper grinders, but its low cost is worth the investment.
