I mistakenly opted for this style of salt pig because it was cheaper that the Nigella Lawson version that has a more offset top. I used to use a Pyrex custard cup to hold my kosher salt when cooking but thought a pig might be better at keeping the salt nice and dry. This particular pig was not the answer. Unless you enjoy dolloping out your salt in half-teaspoon increments using the tiny spoon that comes with the pig, I do not recommend this version. Spend a few more bucks and get the Nigella version with offset top that still allows you to get your fingers in there and get a good hefty pinch of salt.
this is too small to me and won't get much use because of its size
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.
the getting the salt out is cumberson when doing alot of cooking. perhaps designing it so you are able to get your hand in to get the salt out.
I read all of the reviews prior to buying this item. They were very accurate. It is a small spout opening, but I have small hands and do not find it to be a problem. However, the spoon is a pain and doesn't always stay in the opening. So, I took it out.

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.
