Unfortunately we live in an area that has little to offer than Morton's Kosher salt, so can't weigh in on the differences in salt. Of course, I could order via Internet but, at this time, it's not high on my list of priorities.

As for the salted butter issue, I can definitely tell the difference between salted and unsalted butter. Even the less expensive "house" brands.

I can tell the difference between salted and unsalted butter. Especially in baking, if the recipe calls salt, I wouldn't use salted butter. A friend made chocolate chip cookies and used salt because that's what the recipe called for, but she also used salted butter. They didn't taste right.

Also if you are toasting Szechuan peppercorns with salt to grind with a mortar and pestle, you need a coarse grained sea salt. Kosher salt is too fine.

Even smokers can tell the difference between salted and unsalted butter.
