Questions & Answers
One of our cats sometimes tries to climb on top of the cabinet where the salt pig lives. I agree, but There is no proof that they have licked salt, and there have been no sightings of them doing so.
I'm ready to meet you. I don't know what to say! What a miserable experience you must have been having. I am not sure if rats will eat salt, but I strongly suggest that you keep this salt pig in mind. In my experience, it filled up with moisture and formed hard lumps (despite how dry the air was in my house). The shape of the container must be incorrect, or I suspect that it lacks the glazing on the inside, which would allow the moisture to slide away from the salt. The salt pig I bought from "Truly French" was beautiful. The internet retailer has nothing to do with that. I am able to keep my salt dry thanks to the shape and glazing.
The color white.
There are large openings in the lid to allow you to reach for salt, so dust or air particles can certainly There are no obvious effects on taste or illness from the presence of this substance. In the event that I were sanding dry wall, I would cover it, but day to day wouldn't be an issue.
Selected User Reviews For Emile Henry Made In France Pig Salt Mill, Blue Flame
For those who enjoy eating good food, the Emile Henry Salt Pig is a must-have. Having a great finishing salt, like Maldon Smoked Sea Salt Crystals, is a great way to learn what it is like to live like a human.
The pot is very sturdy and bright, and I know the recipient enjoys cooking, so I'm certain he or she will be pleased. I learned that the odd name is actually a very old Scottish term for "clay vessel" - thanks to Wikipedia for clearing that up for me! It is made from ceramic material that absorbs moisture from the salt and prevents it from Moreover, I love, I really love, that Ed Henry is produced in France, where some of the best cooks in the world reside. A big thanks to him!.
5+ is what I would say. Quite a bit of space is provided along with easy access due to the angle. Keeping them in the range and using them every day is just normal for us. We mostly use our hands to eat, but we also have a wooden spoon that we keep Keep quite a bit in your hand. The guest at my house broke the one I had, and I couldn't find a replacement. I am almost glad it broke since my husband had the brilliant idea to order a white one for the salt.
Cooking is my primary occupation, and although shakers are fine at the table, I don't like to use them to add salt to recipes while I am It has become a habit for me to pinch a little salt from the store container into my hand, then pour it into my mouth. This is not a very efficient system. There is no better solution than this salt pig. My hesitancy to get one so exposed to the elements was that I was worried cooking oil, etc. might splash into my lungs. I initially ordered a model that had a lid on it. My first salt pig failed on both counts it had a difficult lid to open, and the salt was difficult to reach. So, I got this Emile Henry salt pig instead. This has been a very satisfying experience for me. Since it is located under the stovetop, I don't have any issues with stuff splashing into it, but it is easily accessible. Despite being well below capacity, I am able to easily reach into it even when low on salt. If I need to move it to another part of my kitchen (such as something I'm preparing at another time needs salt), I simply pinch the top lip to handle it and move it. It is lightweight. There is a lot of space. There is also a contemporary design that is pleasing to the eye. I have never experienced any problems with salt clumping up after absorption of moisture. In the interior, there is no glazing to prevent moisture from accumulating. It may be that people who have clumping problems have overfilled their vases beyond the unglazed portion or just live in extremely humid conditions. The price of this product makes it so much worse than it should be, so I gave it four instead of five stars. The rest of the piece is fine and functional.
A salt pig I had once got broken when I moved across the country. My previous printer has been out of date for years, so I finally decided to replace it. There is just no comparison, it's a thousand times better than the one I owned before, my only regret is that it took me so long to buy one. There is one just beside my cooktop and I use it every day.
When I opened my last salt grinder I found the metal works to be corroded and it was deposited in my salt! I had to find a healthier alternative so I decided on this salt pig. I am confident that I will not harm anyone I took a little getting used to, since I now need to scoop it out with a spoon or my fingers (washed hands, of course), but it was a short adjustment process and I don't plan to go back to salt shakers or grinders.
It was a bit scary to see how the "oak" color would look in person, but I am glad I chose it. In my kitchen, it matches the counter and backsplash The "flour white" utensil stand looks good with the setting. When not in use, I cover the opening of the pyrex custard cup with its lid.
A kitchen accessory like this would be my dream. It is such a delight to reach in and toss a pinch (or more) of pink Himalayan salt to our meals. The hubs and I both enjoy that freedom. It's my belief that when we pinch with our fingers, we use less salt. This is the second order of Emile Henry products I will be placing.
