Product Description

Product Description

Totally Bamboo's Double Salt Box is cute, simple and easy to use. It has an easy slide-off top that rotates a full 360-degrees and has enough space to store 2 types of spices and other items. Wide opening allows plenty of room for larger hands or spoons to reach in to grab your favorite seasoning. No stains or paint are used to create the Double Salt Box's scrumptious honey shade. This color is created in a very specialized heating process which caramelizes the natural sugar in the wood; it is permanent and will not fade or wash out. Wash with warm water and mild detergent and occasionally wipe with mineral oil (Do not clean in the dishwasher). From the original bamboo cutting board company, Totally Bamboo, this salt box is a beautiful and functional addition to any kitchen. Bamboo is the natural alternative for all things wood. It is the fastest growing plant on our planet and does not require any special care to grow. In fact, it is a grass that produces more oxygen than a hard wood forest of comparable size, it helps to reduce carbon dioxide gases blamed for global warming, and it helps to prevent soil erosion through its widespread root system and large canopy. At Totally Bamboo, we are proud to say we use only the highest quality bamboo, harvested at the optimum age of 5 years from our own bamboo forests. There are over 1200 species of bamboo; however, we choose to use “Moso” timber bamboo for its strength, density and versatility. As an added bonus, it is not a habitat for pandas. Our factories adhere to a very stringent protocol for curing and processing the bamboo, ensuring the highest quality product. We take steps to ensure that our employees are well taken care of and work in a safe and hazard free environment. Our goal is continuous improvement through design, developing new, unique and innovative products which appeal to the environmentally conscious.

Fast-growing in nature, bamboo is also fast-growing in popularity as one of the best renewable resources available. Totally Bamboo prides itself on using only hand-selected, China-grown "moso" bamboo, which is not a food source or habitat for the giant panda, and which grows to harvestable size in just 3 to 5 years. Totally Bamboo follows strict environmental guidelines for processing and fair labor policies for its workers. And, the toxin-free products contain no dyes, stains, or glues containing formaldehyde.

This double-section bamboo box attractively stores different types of sea salt, spices, or what-have-you, on the kitchen counter or right on the table. You can even use it for holding jewelry on a dresser. The lid and sections pivot around a central stem a full 360 degrees for easy access. Along with natural variations in color, an oven-heating process caramelizes the natural sugars in the bamboo and produces the warm honey tone of the box. And, because it's harder than wood, bamboo won't absorb water, crack, or peel, and can be sanded if need be. When necessary, simply wash the box lightly with warm, soapy water, and wipe now and then with mineral oil. --Ann Bieri

Looks great on the kitchen counter.

This beautiful bamboo box is a much tighter container and has two separate compartments.

I read a lot of the reviews and set my expectations but they were exceeded.

I don't think it's really as big some say but is a good size and shape to open one handed pretty easily. Quality is great, it's solid, closed nice a snug as it should. It looks good too. It's got more than enough space in each section for what I have, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Obviously I don't grind a lot of pepper at a time so there's more than enough room.

A note about the claims that it's loose and doesn't close snugly. I discovered by accident, that it appears the lid is attached to the screw/rod or whatever it is that the 2 sections and lid pivot on. If you open it counterclockwise you are unscrewing it thus is gets looser. If you continue to spin it counter clockwise, or try to close it by spinning it all the way around, it'll be loose, very loose. If you try to open it clockwise, it should feel very tight, as if it's getting tighter....it is an may not open.

Open it counter clockwise and close it back clockwise and it makes it easy to open the top and the 2 sections, but snugs back up perfectly. Hopefully that is by design and cures some of the loose salt box issues.

I'm very happy with it.

We'd been thinking about a salt box for a while, and when I saw this one on the website, I fell in love with it! Best of all, it was exactly as advertised once I got it! Unlike some other salt boxes I'd looked at, this one is heavy enough on the bottom so that it doesn't tip over when the top box is swung out all the way.

I searched a long time to find a salt box to suit my needs. I wanted a box to keep my sea salt & freshly ground pepper close at hand while cooking. I had been just keeping them in open ceramic bowls on the counter, which is not the best. However, this box is terrific! It keeps both in easy reach and the compact design doesn't take up too much space on the counter. And it is also important that it is made of bamboo, a product which is good for the environment! I highly recommend this product.

I was pretty happy with this product when it came. I received it quickly and looked better on my counter than the tiny tupperware boxes I was using. My only complaint so far is the little knob on top of the box (used to conceal the bolt) popped right off, seems to be an inferior gluing job. This just makes me suspicious of the overall quality. Will update if anything else falls apart.

I received this item and found (like one other reviewer) that it was very hard to slide open. I mean REALLY difficult. It was beautiful looking and I wished it had been tested before shipping, because it took all my strength (holding the box sideways!) to inch it open. I even thought maybe it would loosen up after several efforts: no such luck. I gave it to several other household members, some couldn't slide it at all. Regrettably had to send it back for a refund.

The salt box is beautiful and the sliding mechanism is smooth unlike the reviews I've read. I love it, it looks great on my counter top. I've put kosher salt in the top layer and sea salt in the bottom layer. Very handy and easy to use and look at!

After looking at a LOT of salt boxes I finally decided on this salt box. I love the look and the feel of the bamboo. It holds about 1/2 cup in each well, which works great for me. I put kosher salt in the top box and pink himalayan salt in the bottom. I could not be happier with it.

Prior to receiving this salt box, I had a ceramic salt pig - a glazed jar with a "pig snout" opening which allowed for dust and such to get into the salt. This beautiful bamboo box is a much tighter container and has two separate compartments. I use the salt daily to make a solution for my neti pot, to which I usually add a pinch of baking soda. The bottom part of the container is handy for holding the baking soda with salt in the top compartment. It is far more convenient and more attractive than the two containers I had before - and it takes up less room. Very happy with the bamboo finish. I thought it looked too shiny in the picture but it's just right. It'll be interesting to see how dry things stay in it during the humid summer months.
