Product Description

Size: Small Taster Tins

What is Finishing Salt? The best way to discover finishing salts and begin using them is to try them with your own cooking. Look at them up close, admiring the range of shapes and colors, noting how they refract, reflect, or obscure light. Touch them, feeling the crests and edges, letting your fingers snap flakes or crunch chunks, plunging a spoon through a glistening mound of it. Then of course you taste them, and with every dish comes a new discovery as infinite variations of mineral contents and moisture contents and crystal structures and crystal sizes combine in your mouth and the flavors, textures, and aromatics of your food.

Our starter sets are the best way to explore finishing salts, whether you are a veteran chef, or have never even heard of finishing salt before, or both!

Our aim is on to provide you with salts that are practical and salts that are playful, and some salts that are just plain startling.

Our basic starter sets each include six salts.
* Bitterman's Sel Gris
This Sel Gris is rich in flavor and mineralst
* Bitterman's Fleur de Sel
An effective replacement for all industrial kosher, table, and sea salts.
* Maldon Flake Sea Salt
A delicate flakey salt from the UK. Snow-flake texture for a unique experience
* Black Diamond
A dark black pyramid-flake shaped salt, adding color and geometry to your cooking
* Molokai Red
A bright red dry salt from the Hawaiian island of Molokai
* Alaska Alder Smoked Salt
A salt dried by the sun and hand-harvested, then lovingly smoked slow and low over Kauai's native guava wood.

Each set comes with a brochure explaining the world of finishing salts, as well as suggested uses.

I bought this as a gift for my sister who loves foodie stuff like this and is basically obsessed with salt.

Size Name: 2 oz Jars Verified Purchase
The salt selection is lovely but the jars are fragile. When opening the black salts the jar crushed in my hand. Needless to say I had to throw out the whole jar. Contacted the vendor for replacement and have never heard back so customer service is lacking also.

Size Name: Small Taster Tins
cheap packaging and presentation, plus one tine arrived opened with salt spilled all over. It was fun to try these salts, but this is way overpriced and not quality enough packaging to give as a gift. Booklet incl was just a piece of photocopied paper folded, looked like they just used a cheap office printer. They are all about pure profit with less requard for their customers experience

Size Name: Spanish Cork Jars - 1 oz Verified Purchase
Just recieved the 2 oz version of this sampler kit for christmas. It was missing the promised "Includes a brochure with detailed explanations of each salt and suggested uses." Bummer! We are beginners and this brochure would have been nice to have.

Size Name: Small Taster Tins Verified Purchase
I've been curious about finishing salts but wasn't sure which salt would be the best to use. This starter set is allowing us to really explore the differences in flavor, color, and grain size. You just need a tiny sprinkle on top of your food -- a little goes a long way (but that's the point). My only complaint is that these tins are very difficult to open, and sometimes cause a bit of a spill when they give that final pop. It would have been nice to have jars instead.

Finishing Salt Starter Set - 6 Different Sea Salts From Around the World, Small Taster Tins

This starter set is very nice. I am really enjoying these salts as each one is quite different. The set came with pamphlet that describes each different salt and what it is good to use it for.

Size Name: Small Taster Tins
Everything about this was as I was hoping except that, like another reviewer, one of the glass jars arrived broken and there were shards and salt in the package. I'm not returning it because it was for a last-minute gift - but if you're buying it I'd recommend getting the metal tins. Less expensive and less breakable, too.

Aside from the breakage, everything seems great. I tasted one of the salts from the broken bottle (risky, I know, given the broken glass), and I have to say it was delicious.

If you are looking for variety in your salt, then you will no doubt want this product. You not only get one distinct sea salt, but you in fact get six. Each salt has something to add any meal as you each their own taste to provide. You may never need another salt as this give all the seasoning you can ask for(well, it couldn't hurt to get the Sayulita Sea Salt - Organic Coarse - 16 oz - by RealGoodSalt).

Received these tins as a gift. Absolutely wonderful and so much fun to do a blind taste test before you cook/bake with them. Decided to send them as a gift myself to send on the happiness! WONDERFUL!
