Default salt grinder - see through

http://www.vegcountry.com/Leblanc/sea%20salt.html

I've purchased some Celtic and Spanish (they may be the same thing) and
although DH can eat it as an addition to his food, I cannot.

It is too coarse for me as it will cut into the sides of my mouth.

Can anyone recommend an excellent salt grinder that the grinder part will
not cause the salt to become a cruddy mess. This salt seems moist, to me.

Thanks a lot.
Dee Dee

Never mind -- I think I'll send off for the Kuhn Rikon which has a see-thru
acrylic container and ceramic grinder, with mostly good reviews - at
Amazon.

Michael Chiarello on his shows and website promotes grey salt, which is
damp. He has two grinders that he recommends specifically for the damp
salt, I don't know whether they would pass your vetting but you might
take a look at them, this is the manual one and he also has an automatic
that you could find on the same NapaStyle website. His stuff is generally
of a high quality.

The Oxo Good Grips on Amazon is a see-through ceramic grinder, with all top
ratings. It has also gotten a good review from Cooks Magazine, and might be
easier to operate than others.

We have a pair of see-through salt and pepper mills, both with ceramic
mechanisms, but the salt mill is very difficult to turn once the moist salt
starts caking.

Have you considered simply running a tablespoon or two at a time through a
pulsing whirly-blade spice grinder? That's what I do when I want finely ground
sea salt.

THanks, Pavane for taking the time to send the link and info. Last night I
was searching and I found something similar to the Napa product at Ikea
(that you had to purchase at their store!) about $6.99. And it got a decent
review(s?). This morning I can't find the link - it is on my bedroom
netbook ;-)) will look later.

Yes, I bought two sets of 3 knives (at Costco) of Chiarello'sNapa. They are
used a lot.

Thanks again,
Dee Dee

I'm going to try that! I have two of those whirly-blade's. I see which one
has the least smell from spices and coffee. :-) One of them grinds poorly,
and the other one better. I'll bet it works.
Thanks, Larry

Re my previous reply, here is the interesting little grinder for $6.99 at
Ikea, but it is called "spice" grinder.
For $6.99 I would try it as it has a ceramic grinding mechanism -

That looks nice, I like the fact that it can apparently be taken
apart and cleaned easily. And what a neat website...it turns
out that there are 58 of the grinders in the Orlando store,
good to know. Time for more gravlax and egg at the restaurant.

Thanks, Larry. I did grind it in the Krups whirly-blade. It did a good
job, but I probably ground it too long and it was hard to get all of it out,
some packed, all not too consistent.

I am making some gray-green lentils which will probably turn to mush and
not depend on salt turning them too tough, so I dumped the rest out onto a
small plate and added to the lentils. Though, I could have licked the
plate, like a salt-lick. Moo! Moo!

DH will be in CT again soon, so I'm going to have him pick me up the little
cheapie at Ikea, and then I'll go from there if it is not satisfactory to a
more expensive one that will sit beside my plate.
