I bought this salt after listening to a podcast of the Splendid Table with a man named Mark Bitterman. Yes, Bitterman (not Bittman). He wrote an entire book on salt Salted: A Manifesto on the World's Most Essential Mineral, with Recipes and recommended this salt as an everyday "table salt" alternative. It may not be the most appealing color, but it was what I would expect of a product called "Gray Sea Salt" (or Sel Gris, if you know some French).
As someone who has thus far in life considered Kosher Salt the "fancy" alternative, I now know where I will continually spend a little extra for a lot more. I've put this on everything, from roasted chicken to potato soup. If you rub together your fingers as you sprinkle, you can make a fine coating, but it's perfect in soups because it has such a high-moisture content that it sticks to its own bag. If you are a die-hard iodized table salt fan, this is not the salt for you. It tastes and looks substantially different from your everyday grocery-store salt, and behaves very differently when used in cooking. If you are baking, and the recipe calls for "salt," you may want to taste before you stick it in the oven, and start small, and add as you taste. The moisture content may also alter certain more sensitive recipes, so you it's best to plan ahead if you wish to experiment.
The flavor difference is truly indescribable. I think I would prefer to use this in savory dishes, as that is the flavor palette it gave me, but it may also work well in desserts or on fruits that like salt.
I encourage you to do a taste test as soon as you get it home against your regular table salt. You will immediately thank me, other enthusiastic reviewers, Guérande, France, and the Bay of Biscay.

I bought this salt on a lark because I didn't want to drive 40 miles to the nearest store that carried natural sea salt but I will buy it again. The flavor is wonderful. I'm not a big salt eater, never have been, just don't like the taste of commercial salt but this sea salt is wonderful. I real winner that enhances the flavor of food instead of covering it up as regular salt does.

The granules are larger than Kosher salt so when I sprinkled it on a salad, I got these intermittent explosions of salt - very nice. I don't use it in cooked dishes [common salt will do], just a sprinkle on whatever needs to have fresh salt. I approve of the extra minerals also. Amazon's price is far cheaper than what Food Network entertainers are asking on their websites.

If you are like me, then you grew up thinking that there were only two types of salt in the entire world.

The first was heavy, coarse, came in 50lb bags, and tasted awful...but it was great for melting thick ice off stairs, sidewalks and driveways in the winter...and for some reason you had to put it into your ice cream maker in the summer.

The second always came out of a round blue cardboard container, tasting only marginally better...and although you knew it was "iodized"...that to you meant something along the same lines as your water being "fluoridated"...which is to say that you really didn't know what it meant, but there was a vague notion somewhere in the back of your mind that it was good for you.

Well now there is a third kind of salt in my world...and grinding just a tiny bit of it onto anything edible makes it taste amazing...kind of like slapping your taste-buds awake!

Since then of course I looked into all the wonderful health benefits that the trace minerals provide using this natural salt...but the truth of my world is that if it didn't taste amazing...then I wouldn't use it no matter what it did.

If I was stranded on a desert island and could only take one thing to eat with me...this would definitely be it...because no matter what else I could scrounge up to eat, this would always make it taste great!

A Kid's Review on December 15, 2010
Placed in a salt mill, this French salt is far better than regular table salt and also tastes better than the common seal salt found in many stores today. This has a fine, distinctive taste that makes soups and other foods tase much better.

Worried about too much salt? I just want to add that it is NOT the amount of salt that is bad for one's health. What is bad is our RATIO of salt to potassium. In years past, we Americans had much more potassium in our diets, which lessened the effects (high blood pressure, etc.) of salt. Remember, salt is a necessity for our bodies to function. We simply need to be conscious of the amounts of salt IN PROPORTION to the amounts of potassium. Go ahead; Google this and learn for yourself. Then, enjoy the taste of fine salts (in moderation) to enhance our foods, giving us a better dining experience.

I bought this and the Himalayan salt on Amazon because I am using some in my water daily. I love salt on my food and have to say that I have never tasted such good salt. I like to put a few kernels in my hand with some almonds and eat it that way too. It has a strange consistency, something like little chunks of candy or something. It is wonderful in soups too.
The only drawback with this salt is that you can't use it in a shaker. It will not even grind in a salt grinder I have. It is a bit moist or something and that must keep it from functioning like other salts. I really don't care. This is the salt I am going to use from here on out. I keep a little 1/4 measuring teaspoon with a magnet on it on the lid of the recycled glass peanut butter jar wherein I store the salt.
