Salt has a variety of uses in the kitchen. Use this Berard olive wood salt keeper to store salt on your counter top or shelf. Salt can be used to preserve food, season or just make prep work a little easier. Try sprinkling your hands with a little salt, to get a good grip on a piece of fish. This works perfectly when you are taking the skin off. Keeper is hinged with a magnetic closure, measures 3.9 at the base to 4.2 at the top and is 14.25 ounces. Hand wash only, never to be put in a dishwasher.
