Love this salt pig
I love this salt pig. Not only is it cute but very practical. I bought one to put on my stove and ended up buying a second one for my stove. I have one full of Kosher salt and the other cracked pepper. I use them everyday and really love them.9 of 12 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Spoon was broken but I called ~~
Spoon was broken , but I called right away. It was after 3 in the afternoon. I explained my situation and was assured I would have a replacement. To my surprise , I received a new one the very next day !!! I had made it a point to tell the woman I spoke to to make sure the spoon was packaged better as I did not want it to arrive the same way. Everything came in one piece ! WOW what Great service !! Oh by the way ~~ The pig is the cutest ... hes on my counter and I love it !8 of 11 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you?

I love him!
As soon as I took it out of the box, my sister wanted to name it. It's a very cute thing to have on the counter.
I really like the convenience this lends. I keep a big box of Kosher salt over my refrigerator and need a chair to get at it. Since I'm a little lazy or often rushing, I would often abandon the Kosher and go for table or ground sea salt, when I really wanted to use Kosher salt. Piggy helps this.
It holds quite a bit of salt - maybe 3/4 cup. This isn't a whole lot, especially if you use if for seasoning pasta water and the like, but is enough that you don't have to refill every day or two.
I'm unsure about how I feel about the included spoon. This, of course, isn't a big deal - I can use any spoon I want. See, the spoon is very shallow, so it doesn't hold much salt. I end up piling it high and then spilling it on the counter. Sure I could pick up the whole pig, and I sometimes do. But again, when I'm rushing, every second counts. The other thing about the spoon is that salt kind of sticks to it. I'm not sure if it's from humidity or static electricity or what, but it's not that big a deal.
I haven't had any problem with clumping salt. I first thought moisture was a problem because of the salt sticking to the spoon, but it's not. Ceramic should absorb a little moisture, keeping the salt dry. I wouldn't recommend this product for fine salt though.
And you can't beat the price.
The piggy is so very cute; however, the spoon was broken when I received it. I went ahead and kept the product, because it is such a pain to send things back.6 of 9 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Convenient but not perfect
I love having salt at my fingertips vs. pulling the box of Kosher slat out of my cabinet. It's convenient to have the salt pig on the countertop (very small footprint), my only complaint is that the opening is too small (and I have little hands). I almost always have to use the little spoon or pick up the pig up and tilt it just so in order to grab a pinch of salt. But it's worth the price for the convenience and compared to other salt pigs that are much more expensive but appear to be of similar size I would definitely recommend this.5 of 8 users found this helpful.
