Salt Box

I love coarse salt. And I love Penzeys. So when I saw a big bag of course salt at Penzeys, of course I bought it. However, I had nothing to store the salt in that made it easy for me to use, so it’s just been sitting in my cupboard for months. Until now.

Shopping on Amazon is something I can do while I’m recovering from Owen’s birth, so I finally spent a little time this week searching for the perfect salt container. There are all kinds of salt crocks out there so it was tough to pick, but I decided to get this small bamboo salt box. It came in the mail yesterday and…I LOVE IT. I almost went with the Le Creuset salt crock but decided to go with this one instead, and I’m so glad I did. Here are the reasons it rocks:

  • It has a lid, so foreign objects can’t easily get into the salt.
  • The swinging lid has a little magnet that helps snap it closed.
  • It’s small, but fits in a good amount of salt, I think around 3/4 of a cup.
  • I like that the opening to the box is on top of the container rather than on the side.
I can’t wait to start salting things!

    I got one just like that for my birthday and I love it for all the same reasons. I’m not a great cook, but I love using the salt thingy so at least I look like one:)

    p.s.- I’m excited to see a post about what someone brought you for dinner lastnight! 🙂

  3. Also, I know you aren’t meal planning for the next week (your own plan) but will you resume the NEXT Sunday (10/16)?

    This is so neat! I’ve never seen nor heard of this. When I was growing up, my great aunt had a collection of salt dishes – these tiny little glass bowls to keep salt in (and I do mean tiny!). She always had them on display and I loved to stare at them when we visited. I was fortunate enough to inherit one from her when she passed away. I love it and now I get to display it! 🙂

    Happy recovering! 🙂
