Allergy question

My roommate is allergic to plastic, which gets in the way of her finding a salt grinder, because apparently every salt grinder she and I have found, no matter what the outside is made of, has plastic gears and/or plastic griding bits, which is ridiculous, really. Why make a salt grinder with a grinding part that is weaker than the material you're grinding? Anyway, she can't use those because little bits of plastic get into the ground up salt.

Does anybody else know where to find a salt grinder that has like, a metal grinder? Granted, she's allergic to lots of metals, too, but metal being stronger than salt means it's unlikely to be a problem the way plastic salt grinders are. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I don't know where to even begin looking.

I can understand using a pepper grinder, because I do so myself - freshly ground pepper has more flavor and aroma than something that was ground and then packaged. But salt doesn't work that way; you just buy crystals of the fineness you want, and use a glass and metal salt shaker (inexpensive, classic diner design, usually available at the supermarket).

That being said, these pepper grinders may have metal grinding gears. Email or phone them, and ask. The company is very ethical, and I love their attitude; I know they'll be as helpful as possible on the phone (because I've dealt with strange orders over the phone, and they've always been great).
