Many of you store your salt, pepper, and other frequently-used ingredients on the countertop. We love having our nutmeg grater, sugar bowl, and a couple other staples within easy reach. If you're thinking of getting a salt pig or sugar bowl for your own countertop, here's one to consider: the cleverly-designed Pop Savor from Prepara.
These little containers have ceramic bases but silicone tops that snap up and down at the press of a finger. They hold up to 1 cup, and they include a little ceramic spoon that snaps into the back.
In theory at least, we like the design of these little salt pigs or pepper cellars. It's nice to have a lid that doesn't need to be pulled off and placed somewhere else on the countertop. And even with the lid popped up it protects the contents of the jar from dust and stray food.
