Sweet Spirit sugar dispenser

sweetspirit.jpg

I've always found sugar dispensers to be quite useless because it's far too hard to control the amount of sugar that comes out. It doesn't help that I find most of them to be rather boring, even ugly, in their design.

But Troika's Sweet Spirit sugar dispenser is one that I could quite happily use, I think. The dispenser is made of glass and aluminium; depressing the knob at the top releases sugar from the bottom of the globe. It looks like the sugar comes out in a sprinkle, which is nice if you're adding sugar to desserts. Refilling it could be a bit tricky because if the small opening (if you've ever refilled a one-handed pepper mill, you'd know what I mean), but Troika has thoughtfully provided a paper funnel for that purpose.

Contact your local Troika distributor for a stockist near you, or get it online at EFX.

Looks like it wouldn't work. Sure, you'd get sugar out of it. But when you released the plunger some sugar is bound to get stuck between that little valve and the glass wall, propping it open enough for it to leak.

Give me the classic diner sugar thingie and salt shakers and I'm happy. (of course, give me the classic diner anything and I'm happy.)
