Yeah, that's true, we can't get perfect without original sault, have to use a mixture of both some time. I have used it on everything from chicken to french fries to sandwiches. Definitely recommend!

My issue with flavored salts is that the salt to garlic ratio (for example) is fixed. If you like a lot of garlic, you may have added more salt than you like. on the other hand, garlic powder used alone and salt used alone are independent. So if I'm a garlic fanatic who doesn't want a lot of salt in food, I'm all set.

The flavored salts I use are homemade, so I can make the blend to suit my taste.

Yes, but your needs may change from recipe to recipe...

I use them as finishing salts, to add a little extra flavor and crunch on top when serving. It works for me

Aah, OK. I was thinking of them as ingredients.

And that is where I have the problem. When you buy premixed seasonings, you turn over the control to the maker. I know, I do have control issues.

No, I use kosher salt for savory cooking and table salt for baking.
