Anyone have feedback on these? I've started cooking a lot more lately, and lots of recipes call for sea salt. So far I've been getting by with the kosher salt I have in the house. Are these worth the money?

I thought so, nice to have around.

I use the pink all the time. It's usually $6 or more in stores. The smoked is harder to find and has a lovely edge in some foods. Definitely worth the money.

I say it's a good price for your new cooking interest and a nice holiday gift.

These are awful quality, as generally any salt or pepper that comes "prepackaged" in a grinder tend to be.

If you're really interested in moving to a more nuanced salt in your cooking or finishing of dishes, consider going to a specialized salt supplier. The Meadow is where I got my first legit gourmet salt and would recommend it to anyone. Yes it's double the price, but it's WAY more quantity and quality.

I bought these salts the last time they were up. I have used the Himalayan, Smoked Sea Salt and the Sel Gris. Good quality salts and the dispensers have worked well for me. A good amount of salt is in each dispenser and I think this deal is a good value. I like to use various salts when cooking/grilling and normally purchase them at a market in NYC from a vendor that specializes in custom oils and salts.

As far as basic sea salts are concerned, these are of the same quality as those I purchase from the vendor in NYC but much cheaper. The shop is also in a trendy market (Chelsea) so I guess the higher prices would be expected there. If w.w had some unique oils and salts to put up (think lemongrass oil and Ghost Pepper Salt!), I wouldn't need to return~

If recommending a product that is superior in quantity and quality makes me a hipster, so be it. Was just trying to be helpful since I had experienced both this product and had a better experience elsewhere.

Would love to see you in a blind salt taste test.

Nov. 13 and I'm still waiting. Thought for sure I'd have these to take to a friend's house day after thanksgiving. Now I'm not so sure.

Just heard back. They got delayed by that big ol' snow storm in the NE. They should be going out today.

Sorry for the delay.
