Top Customer Reviews
It's hard for this reviewer to not think of those classic Jimmy Buffett lyrics when contemplating a product such as this:
"Wastin' away again in Margaritaville,
Searching for my lost shaker of salt.
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
But I know it's nobody's fault..."
If I lose this one, will be going for this Classic 2-Ounce Salt and Pepper Shaker set, but let's hope not.
Of course, every time one looks at these, the inevitable question arises: does the salt or the pepper go in the shaker with more holes? Wikipedia has an article about this topic, and says: "Salt shakers will normally have fewer holes in them than pepper shakers." On the other hand, digging a bit further on the 'Net one finds that the International Guild of Professional Butlers notes that salt shakers generally have larger and fewer holes to accommodate the larger, heavier grains that flow faster than pepper, although they do acknowledge there is no manufacturing standard.
Going even further, the "Flavor" faction states that salt goes in the shaker with more holes because people use salt more often, and in greater amounts. They say that it equalizes the need, making one shake roughly the same for either spice. But the "Flow" group contends that pepper goes in the shaker with more holes because it consists of larger chunks than salt, arguing that this equalizes the flow, making one shake roughly the same for either spice.
There's another easy solution: if you like the taste of freshly ground pepper, just get a pepper grinder.
Regarding salt and the need for the shaker, I happen to like the flavor of La Baleine Sea Salt, a finely ground 26.5-ounce naturally evaporated Mediterranean sea salt. Salt has been produced on this company's site since the Roman occupation and has been gathered there since Antiquity when the Roman engineer, Peccius, was in charge of production. It's just a personal choice, and highly subjective. But the container can be a bit unwieldy at times, so it's better to use the non-shaker side and pour what you need into a salt shaker for regular use.
But back to this classic Glass Salt or Pepper Shaker, all I can say is that it works, just like the ones in the diner. If it cakes up a bit, which is inevitable, don't blame the shaker: it's salt, and it will cake. Luckily this one has large enough holes where the blockage can be cleared quickly with a few pokes of a round toothpick. The stainless steel screw-on top has nineteen holes arranges in a star pattern, just like the one that was found in the diner. It has that commercial-grade retro look that makes it easy to evoke those Jimmy Buffet lyrics, bringing back nostalgically fond memories.
Looks like I've found my lost shaker.
