If the thought of a mouth-watering meal makes you dance with joy, would you rumba as you shake Ayush Kasliwal's Salt and Pepper Maracas over your dinner?

Do they both have the same number holes, as pictured? If so, this makes it difficult to know if you're about to use salt or pepper.

Would love these if the functionality was addressed: the holes issue and they'd need a stand for upright positioning when not in use.

love these but waaaaaaaay too pricey -- c'mon, they're salt and pepper shakers! And how do you display them? Stick in a drawer? Hang them? Can't just lay them down -- they'll roll. So, maybe not such a great design.

Price is too high, holes aren't appropriate amount for S/P, what would you store/display them in on the table or for me in a collection. Good concept but needs refinement.

Cute idea, but it needs refinement and a price reduction. How would you store them? Seems they would roll around and the contents would come out. Also, how do you differentiate between the salt and pepper when both have only 2 holes?

Voting is almost complete, and we're excited to see the results! Both maracas do have the same number of holes, so the best way to see what's in them is to start shakin'! Although the containers of these shakers are rounded, the handles are nickle-plated brass, which keeps them from rolling off the table. They won't roll away one you, but we can't guarantee that maraca loving kids won't have a little too much fun making "music" with this seasoner set.
