I am with most people, I only use kosher salt. I do have a salt and pepper shaker that is used at the table for meals only. I cleaned out some small jars that were originally filled with Classico Pesto. I have one filled with salt and one with pepper, that I use just for cooking. It was such a pain before to either try and get the salt out of the shaker or out of the container. I would always ending up using way too much, or getting salt all over the kitchen.

I have an olive wood salt keep and I love it! I don't know what I would do without it. I understand people saying that they don't need one, but I swear once you use one (filled with Kosher salt) you won't know how you lived without one!

I have a salt grinder for every day food and Morton's for baking... reaching into the cupboard never seemed like much of a hassle to me.

It's never crossed my mind to get one. I use my sea salt straight out of the container it came in.

I have a salt shaker, but I also keep the package it came in on a shelf, in case I need more than a sprinkle. I do plan to get a container for it though, just like for everything else. I hate half used packages of everything falling all over the place! gah!

I have a set of the old glass refrigeratorware that was pre-tupperware, pre-ugly pyrex, from the 40's, I believe. They are clear in various sizes and shapes all with glass lids that are made to stack in the fridge. I use the smallest square ones for salt and course ground black pepper and then the larger ones for flour, sugar, and the water bottle is used for storing olive oil.

I use a little glass jar. My mom has a huge thing of kosher salt, so I just get some from her whenever I run out.

Yes, a "salt pig" (Emile Henry). I cannot imagine cooking without it --- you really cannot measure salt precisely with a shaker, and it would be a pain to pour it out of the salt box every time. I have kosher salt in it, because that is what I use 99% of the time.

Yes, I have a salt cellar for my kosher salt. I have a big box of kosher salt with a little pour spout in my cabinet and I always hated having to pour a bunch out just to get a teaspoon. It's round, squat, and made of clear glass with a fitted lid. The side says "SALT" and it's cute. I've been using it for a couple months now and so far the salt isn't clumping or anything, and it makes life easier when I need some kosher salt. I got it at Crate and Barrel for a fairly reasonable price - under $10? around $5? I forget exactly - they also sell ones made out of bamboo for a lot more.

Other than the one the salt came in? No. I don't think I need one. My kitchen is crowded enough!
