Mother’s Day Gift Idea: For the Cook in Your Life 

<img style="float: left;" src="" alt="" width="103" height="76" />Here's a unique salt and pepper shaker set created using digital manufacturing techniques – including 3D printing and laser sintering. High tech comes to the table.

The Vortex Salt & Pepper Shakers from Shapeways are a great gift idea for anyone in your life who loves to cook. Give yourself double points if they are nerdy as well.

The set, created by design team Moloko have a digital manufacturing secret behind them. With only one large funnel in the top for filling, one might think that what goes in will also pour out once the shaker is inverted. But that’s not the case due to some tricky internal channels created using digital manufacturing. These beauties dispense that ever elusive “pinch” of salt or pepper with ease.

They are unique, functional and effective. At only $52.00 and with Mother’s day right around the corner, why not get a set for the nerdy cook in your life? (I hope my husband is reading this – hint, hint!)
