Salt Keepers & Shakers

Salt Keepers & Shakers

One of the most important seasonings ever discovered, salt has always been prized for its taste-enhancing properties that elevate virtually any dish to another level. In the days of the Roman empire, roads were specifically built to ensure a steady supply of this vital commodity, which was sometimes even used as currency due to its prized status. In modern times, salt is easier to obtain but just as essential for great cooking. Williams-Sonoma offers a number of helpful ways to store your salt – whether in the kitchen or at the dining room table – as well as salt shakers so your family can salt food to the their personal taste. Our practical Olivewood Salt Keeper features a swiveling magnetic lid for easy access during cooking. And thanks to its handcrafted olivewood grain, it is also elegant. This adds a touch of grace to your kitchen or dining room table. The beautiful container can be monogrammed if you wish, making an excellent gift for a special someone.

Our Le Creuset Stoneware Salt Crock is also very useful when cooking thanks to its open design and generous 4" diameter. Its enamel exterior is available in several bright colors for a cheery atmosphere. For grinding your own sea salt – which offers especially clean flavors – see our collection of salt and pepper mills. And if you like to keep your kitchen organized, a spice rack is an excellent choice. Chopping fresh herbs and garlic is easy with the proper tools.
