Put a Lid on It, Stoneware Salt Cellar


Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Great Specialty Food Store"

We searched the world for the perfect salt cellar almost as long as we searched for the perfect salt (which we found a few years ago in Iceland). Good news. We just found our salt cellar. 

What makes a perfect salt cellar? Well, first off, it needs an air-tight lid. That's an important feature because salt left in the open air will dry out and get hard. Our salt cellar has a beautiful Acacia wood lid fitted with an air-tight closure. BTW, we also sell the cellars in a gift box with a tube of our signature Icelandic Flaky Sea Salt.

What's more, our salt cellars are just the right size. Each cellar is nearly 3" in diameter and about 2" high. That means they hold about 2 oz of our Icelandic Flaky Sea Salt. If you're looking to buy a gift, a Stoneware Salt Cellar and our Icelandic Sea Salt make an ideal gift set.

Choose your Stoneware Cellar in Black or White. (Or pick up one of each so you can stock both salt and peppercorns.) Stoneware part of cellars are dishwasher safe.

  • Choose Black or White
  • Ideal housewarming gift paired with our Icelandic Salt
  • Each Acacia lid is unique with finish variations consistent with real wood

Hand wash only. Do not put in dishwasher. Do not drop on big toe. Do not store Morton salt inside instead of Reluctant Salt. Do not pass go.


Regular Non-Rush Delivery starts at just $3.95. It's very reasonable.

It's darn fast too. Almost all orders arrive in just a few days.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed. Would hate for you to be unhappy. The world has enough unhappiness. We're here to make you happy. Okedoke?

Perfect size for a package of Hawaiian sea salt. Seal on lid keeps it dry in our tropical humidity. Great product; prompt delivery.


Buy from this guy!


Love having salt and pepper so handy on my counter. When anything looks this good, you don’t want to hide in a cabinet.

Little treasures!

I love these lidded pots. They are not only beautiful, they also keep my salt/pepper in pristine condition. I adore this company and so glad I found it! Everything I've purchased has been exceptional!

Spicy container adds zest to life!

I recently acquired the Stoneware Salt Cellar because of its attractive appearance on Reluctant Traders website. I am extremely pleased with this item as it is both attractive and functional way to store spices on the counter that are accessed often like salt and pepper but could also be any spice that is always needed.
