Worth their salt.
You already know seasoning is the most important part of cooking, but did you know you can achieve the same finger-licking salt flavor by cooking your food on salt? Heat one of these Himalayan pink salt blocks via your stovetop, oven, or grill and use it as a cooktop for grilling, baking, and sautéeing all kinds of foods while simultaneously imparting each bite with a clean, mineral salt flavor from the block itself. Alternatively, chill the block in the fridge and use it as a stunning serving platter for cold appetizers or salads that could benefit from a kiss of salt, like this watermelon and arugula salad.

Care & Notes -
Safe for use on a stovetop (gas or electric), barbeque, or in the oven. Can be used heated or chilled.
To heat, place the salt block on a single burner on your stovetop. Start your salt block at a low heat for 20 minutes, increasing to medium heat in 20-minute increments until the heat is high. It is important to gradually heat the salt block to prevent it from shattering. Sprinkle a drop of water to test the heat. If it sizzles immediately, it’s hot and ready for use.
Salt block may be chilled in the fridge for other preparations.
After using salt block, allow to cool overnight. Ensure that the block is fully cooled to room temperature before washing. To wash, rinse the block under warm water and scrub any stuck foods. Do not immerse in water, do not use soap, and do not place in dishwasher. Dry block with a cotton towel and leave out to air dry.
Store in a location with low humidity. When storing in a cabinet, it is recommended that salt block be placed in a plastic bag, as the salt can be corrosive to metal hinges over time.
You may see slightly uneven edges or minor nicks in your salt block—they’re naturally quarried so this isn’t anything to be worried about (plus they give character!).
