Great salt keeper. . . . .
The marble base is nice and sturdy and the wooden top has a slanted inlet that allows the wooden spoon (which measures a half teaspoon) to partially rest inside, handle sticking out, with the lid closed on top. The online pictures don't show this inlet feature so I was very pleasantly surprised to discover it. It is a lot more convenient to have the spoon secured inside vs. just sitting on top of the cellar. My only concern is that the wood portion around the inlet is slightly off-colored from the rest of the lid.
