I purchased this based on watching Good Eats, however, this is NOT exactly like Alton's. The handle on this item does not curved down like Alton's; it extends straight out and therefore you cannot easily hold this and open the lid using the same hand so you can get a pinch of salt with the other hand. Alton's salt cellar (available at altonbrown.com) is an easy one hand operation that is exactly like Alton's Good Eats... you can also get the other color versions as well at this site. I don't know why this one is sold here instead of the correct Good Eat's salt cellar.
If you search the store by clicking on "Shop by Host" and click on Alton Brown's items, this salt server will come up. However, this is NOT the same one that Alton Brown uses on his show. This one has a very short, straight handle and it's virtually impossible to hold the server in one hand and flip the lid open/closed at the same time. You either have to flip the lip up and then pick the server up or use two hands. The one Alton Brown uses has a longer, curved handle so that you can hold it in your hand and flip the lip open/closed at the same time. If you're looking for a salt server, this is an ok item that's constructed well. But if you're looking for the one that works like the one Alton Brown uses on his show, you will be disappointed.
Thought the size of this salt server is nice - not too big to sit on counter. BUT the lid would not close. There was a 1/4" gap opposite the hinge - gasket didn't seem to be the problem - looked as though the hinge wasn't right. M Ward
Looks great sitting next to the stove - best of both form and function!
The salt server is nothing like the one on Alton Brown's program. I hate them!!!! I made the big mistake of buying three because I thought. I would actually get the one like on the program......I NEVER MAKE THAT MISTAKE AGAIN!!!!

The main difference between salts is in their texture. Table salt's fine grain dissolves quickly and therefore is the preferred salt when baking. Sea and kosher salt's larger, irregular grain if sprinkled on food at the last minute adds a delightful crunch and hit of briny flavor as it dissolves on the tongue. Generally, accomplished cooks prefer kosher salt when cooking, since its coarse texture is easier "to take a pinch of" when seasoning savory dishes.
