How to make this crosshatch wireframe?

I’d like my pepper grinder to have a similar crosshatch pattern as the vase to the left. I applied my simple deform to twist the pepper grinder wireframe to look similar but I’m not sure how to remove the horizontal lines/wireframe. Plan to 3d print it if I can get it to work, thanks.

when you have horizontal and vertical quads and want them to be oblique, you can try a Ctrl E > Un-Subdivide (keep an Iteration of 1 in the Operator box):
