This small cast iron salt and spice bowl is designed by Carl&Carl of Denmark and handmade in Sweden. The bowl comes with a beautiful walnut wood lid with a strong rubber seal. A notch in the rim of the bowl make it easier to lift the lid off. For a larger version of this Swing salt bowl, click here.
The base of the salt/spice bowl has a gentle curve to it, so while it sits upright, it swings slightly in a circular pattern when bumped—how fun! The bowl is well balanced so it doesn't tip over easily.
This is the perfect partner to my cast iron pepper mill. I am using for flake salt, but you could use it for anything you keep a small amount of at the ready for cooking (arrowroot powder, etc. )
I got the walnut version and it matches the pepper mill perfectly. Note that these have been finished with a black coating so they state to not warm them as you would season cookware. Mine had a tiny scuff in the finish but a couple of touches of sharpie made it practically invisible.
Thanks again for prompt delivery and great packaging of the shipment.
