It is one of those very small but very annoying problems, especially of you live in a country with the level of humidity that Japan hits during the summer: how to keep salt and pepper fresh? Yes, sealing them in airtight bags helps but that makes using them a fuss and these are ingredients you want to have always at your fingertips, right? Toffy agrees and its Pop-Up Salt and Pepper Shakers are the simple but effective answer to the problem!
The answer is a powerful magnet holding down the two 50 x 116 mm (1.9 x 4.5") Toffy Pop-Up Salt and Pepper Shakers on their base. As soon as you pick one up, the magnet no longer works and the lid of the shaker pops up, allowing you to use its contents as you like. As soon as you put it on its base again, the magnet pulls the lid down. Clever, right? As for their capacity, the salt shaker takes up to 80 g (2.8 oz) and the pepper shaker 40 g (1.4 oz).
