There are certain cuisines that are famous for their hot spices, like Indian and Mexican. Hungarian is close to them in making your tongue burn. Here it’s a tradition to put grinded dried hot paprika in soups and all kinds of food. Sadly, lately it was substituted with nasty, unorganic pastes with a lot of salt and preservatives. The designer Peter Toronyi
came to the idea of Paprikum, a grinder, that is great as a souvenir and as a practical kitchen utensil, which brings back some traditions. Its design is unique, it uses a small stainless steel ball to grind every dried herb and spice by shaking it. The more you shake it, the more finer the spices get inside. After that, it could be easily sprinkled. Peter won the Hungarian Design Award in student category with this object. It comes in high quality, anodized aluminium and you can contact the designer to purchase.
