Olivewood Salt Cellar

| /

In stock

This olivewood salt cellar, also called a salt box, is handy in a pinch...handy FOR a pinch, that is. Keep your cooking salt easily accessible yet away from household dust and ambient moisture as cooks have done since time immemorial.  

Two turned pieces of olivewood, joined with a single clever slide-away hinge which closes onto a small magnetic pin, allows one-handed access. 

As with all natural products, you will appreciate that individual pieces exhibit minute variations in size and shape, and sometimes show vivid differences in markings.

Salt not included.

How to Care for Your Olivewood

Keep your olive wood in good condition. Please hand wash (do not soak) and hand dry.  For maintenance, treat wood with mineral oil or wood butter. This will enhance the grain, seal the wood from moisture, and prevent cracking. We do not recommend using cooking oil for treatment because it will become rancid.  For more information about olivewood and its care see our posts The Beauty of Olivewood and Thoughts on the Care of Olivewood
