Product Description

Made in France from a single piece of the finest olive wood, this handcrafted salt keeper offers original beauty (no two are identical) and graceful curves for an elegant addition to any kitchen counter or table. The unit's rounded interior holds up to a half-pound of cooking salt at a time, while its swiveling magnetic lid, with its stainless-steel hinge, swings open easily with one hand--a nice feature when in the middle of cooking dinner. The use of wood not only brings the beauty of nature indoors, but it has also been found to be more hygienic than plastic. Furthermore, out of respect for the environment, the particular olive wood used by Berard comes from sustainably managed forests, so the piece can be enjoyed for years to come and with peace of mind. The salt keeper measures approximately 4 by 4 by 4 inches and should be hand washed only and dried thoroughly.

From the Manufacturer

Berard is located in the mountains of Royans, which border the northern edge of Provence in France.
Since 1892, Berard has specialized in creating kitchen products from carefully selected woods such as beechwood, boxwood and olivewood. The quality of Berard products are the result of a century of know-how. The Berard objective is to offer the best in kitchen and decorative wood products both in traditional as well as innovative shapes and materials.



Because Berard has been making wood items for over a century, our artisans truly understand the various woods and how to best create wonderful and useful articles from this warm and beautiful material. Our products may have irregular graining, veining or knots. Each piece is hand crafted based on the characteristics of the wood it is to be made from. Whether using these articles for cooking, serving or decorating, these unique items not only highlight your good taste but also your enjoyment of natural things.


Features:

  • Handcrafted in France, using traditional methods
  • Each piece is artisanaly produced by artisans who are adept at working with wood. The unique nature of the wood means that no two pieces are alike and dimensions will vary from piece to piece. The little imperfections in the wood are characteristic of the hand crafted nature of each piece.
  • The quality of Berard products are the result of century of know-how. Year after year, Berard has been synonymous with quality, authenticity and reliability.
  • All of our olivewood items come from agricultural orchards and each tree is cut with respect to the laws that protect each country and the use of olive wood.

  • Environment's Respect:
    Wood is a natural resource which is crucial to the balance of life on our planet. Using it as a raw material means respecting it from its origins...the forest or orchard...all the way through to recycling.

    On these issues, Berard's position is one of clarity and integrity: only species from forests and orchards which are managed in a sustainable manner are used. Respect of origin, strict management of quantities and careful selection of species are long-standing values at Berard.

    This is absolutely a fantastic buy and gift for your special friends.

    The wood is beautiful, the swivel mechanism works smoothly and consistantly, with the closed lid held in place by a magnet. preventing me from spilling the salt.

    It's beautiful and much cheaper than actually buying it at Williams Sonoma. .

    I had been eyeing this attractive Berard salt keeper for quite some time. There are plenty of other more reasonably priced options on Amazon, but this is the only one I really wanted. Finding myself with some gifted birthday money, I made the purchase.

    Made from beautifully finished olive wood, the salt keeper stands about 3 inches tall and holds about a 1/2 cup. The lid snaps into place magnetically, and smoothly swivels with the use of one hand.

    The swivel is a simple screw. Opening and closing the lid requires opening in one direction and closing in reverse. Otherwise one could over tighten and damage the lid. Alternatively the lid can be removed by screwing off in the other direction. I expected something more technical, but the screw system works well.

    Since these salt keepers are made from olive wood, each one has its own appearance. The one I received came as described and looks just as attractive as the one pictured. Obviously the grain pattern is different though.

    If you're like me, you'll find the price of this item is steep. If it weren't for the birthday cash, I probably would have just left this in my wish list. However I am glad I made the purchase. The Berard handcrafted salt keeper is an attractive addition to my cooking station. If you can justify the price, you'll enjoy it too.

    PROS:
    Solid olive wood
    One handed lid control
    Holds 1/2 cup

    CONS:
    Pricey

    I received this product as a wedding shower present, after finding the "same" at Sur la Table. It was no where near as high of quality, or as beautiful. The magnet was weak, the lid was warped. It was a huge disappointment. Luckily, we could return it and buy the Sur La Table one. Don't try to save money, it's not worth it!

    I am returning a second one of these as it has a know with gauges and splits. I have seen these beautiful Berard Olive wood salt keepers in kitchen stores and never seen one that was flawed. However, this is my second order through Amazon (Amazon Prime supploer) and both were flawed, I assume factory rejects, yet these are being sold at full price. I am now very sorry I wasted my time ordering these and having to return, but happy for the great Amazon Prime return option.

    I ordered 9 of these for gifts, returned 5 for significant imperfections - gaps between top and bottom, gouges, etc.. I then bought them at a brick and mortar store where they were same manufacturer but significantly nicer. When you get a good one, they are gorgeous!

    Some had missing chunks of wood, others were rough and splintery. Very poor quality.
    I would definitely not recommend. Thanks.

    This was a splurge purchase for me and so well worth it! I like keeping kosher salt close to my cook top and have been using a box for years. That has its downsides. Fill a measuring spoon and, for sure, some will spill over. Or, do the Rachael Ray palm thing and pray that your palm isn't damp. Oh, and the box takes up quite a bit of space. Frustrated with the box idea, I started pouring the salt in a Pyrex dish so I could pinch it or scoop it... Nice, but, shoot, the salt was vulnerable to dust and anything else floating in the air, like splattering grease from a nearby cooking adventure. I found the Berard French Olive-Wood Salt Keeper on Amazon, via their recommendations, while looking for another cooking utensil. It's made of beautiful wood and looks great on my counter. The magnetic closure works well while not making it at all difficult to open the box. I can grab a teaspoon or a pinch with ease. And the salt is protected from surrounding activities. Beautiful and functional piece!

    The Berard 90070 French Olive Wood Salt Keeper is absolutely beautiful. Opening the lid by the swivel mechanism is an easy, one-handed, smooth movement. It swivels both clockwise and counter-clockwise. The wood is beautiful and looks elegant on my Venetian gold granite counter. Never thought I'd call a salt cellar "elegant". It is almost art. I researched other olivewood salt keepers. The Williams Sonoma keeper (same price as the Berard 90070, about $50) is made in Tunisia, and reviews on the WS website indicate their swivel lid does not quite fit level with the bowl leaving a slight but noticeable gap. The Berard's lid is perfectly level with no gap, AND it is made in France BY HAND! If you appreciate a fine, elegant, and useful kitchen addition created from beautiful olivewood by an artisan, this is the salt keeper for you. Berard 90070 French Olive-Wood Handcrafted Salt Keeper

    This is my second one - and I love it.
    My only complaint is of my old one - the screw hole eventually got too large so it no longer screws shut. I think this can be resolved with wood glue - so we will see.
    My old one still looks new.
