Our peppermill broke recently so I started looking for a replacement. Unable to find what I wanted – something in stainless steel without any clear acrylic (which ends up looking messy) and without the traditional salt/pepper shaker shape – was a little frustrating. Instead, I decided to look at salt cellars. Years ago, I had decided that I didn’t need or want a salt shaker and would rather have a nice salt cellar which could also be used for table service. Currently, I either use salt directly from the container or put it in a small bowl or ramekin and take pinches while cooking or measured spoons while baking.
On Etsy, I quickly discovered, Culinarium, beautifully handcrafted housewares, mainly out of concrete with simple, clean designs.
