I have been searching for the perfect salt holder to grab a pinch of salt while cooking. As a Food Network addict, I always see my favorite celebrity chefs grabbing a pinch of salt from a small bowl on the kitchen counter. While this seems like a convenient solution, it sets off my germaphobe alarm. I would be so nervous that someone would sneeze on it, or bugs land in it, or dust cover it, or something even worse…. So after a bit of searching, I finally found the perfect solution!
This is actually a covered butter dish, but works great for grabbing a quick pinch of salt. When I am not actively using the salt holder, I keep the lid on. Then when I am cooking, I simply remove the lid and set it to the side.
I found this dish at Crate & Barrel for only a few dollars. What do you think, could this be a new kitchen gadget that you will add to your current collection?
