I know that I've already highlighted a Le Creuset product in my 12 Days of Christmas, but hey, what can I say? I love Le Creuset! :-) This salt crock is much more affordable than the dutch oven, though. It sits next to my stove full of Kosher salt--it makes flavoring my dishes so much easier when it's open and right next to the action. I thought that the salt would cake together (especially since I live in the south where humidity is just another part of daily life), but it never has. I even keep an adjustable measuring spoon in the crock so it's easy to measure and scoop the salt out.
If you cook a lot and don't have a salt crock, I would invest in one today...it makes life so much simpler! (And it's just plain pretty on your countertop!)
