Those are very cute. But, aren't they hard to get your fingers into? Some Danes believe that salt tastes better if you use your fingers.

Ya after doing research today i learned a lot. 1st make sure your salt is suitable for a salt grinder before you use it. Even some salts will corrode Stainless Steel. Make sure whatever salt your using is a dry salt and not a wet salt.

I bought two of the following.

Amazon.com: OXO Good Grips Pepper Mill: Kitchen Utensils & Gadgets

I use course sea salt in this grinder. For the price, it makes a nice little set. And it is sturdy plastic. So that means the sea salt won't corrode it. Easy to fill. Little door on the front opens toward the front. Has a wide opening for filling both the salt and the pepper.

My ex used little glass salt dishes with tiny spoons when we had guest for dinner. For a klutz like me, that meant little piles of salt on my food with large unsalted spaces in between. I don't miss that at all.

Andy, if you are ever in Denmark and are invited to a supper where there are salt sellers at each table setting, it is perfectly good etiquette to use your fingers for pinches of salt.

bt, according to the specifications of the link I posted a bit back, the OXO one has ceramic gears. And it is reasonably priced.
