I don't really think about it much anymore (it's become instinct), but I was taught to use differnet hands for different things--right hand is for seasoning, knife, pan handles; left hand is for food. I can see how your method would be safer yet, though.

I love my salt container or pig It's a double decker with a wooden lid..When I start cooking I take it apart remove the lid and have two different salts at hand, Now, I'm thinking of getting another one as I've been given some red and some pink salt what fun.

Kadesma - that pink salt would look good in Andy's flowered shaker if you can pry it out of his hands!

I have one. No problem with humidity or dust, but I did have a spider build a web in it once. The knob on top of mine is hollow, and apparently was just the right size for the the spider.

I do keep a spoon in mine, because seems like my hands are always wet in the kitchen, and I don't want to drip into the salt.

Now I have to go check inside the knob of mine! It's been quite a year for spiders here, and I wouldn't be surprised to find one there!
