Please Note: When heated, your salt block may change colour and develop fissures. These salt blocks take on a life of their own once you start using them; this is normal and part of the salt’s natural charm.
If you prefer not to change the appearance of your salt block, use it to serve only cold foods rather than heated or cooked foods.
- First make sure your salt plate is completely dry. (If it is wet, allow to dry at least 14 hours in a warm, dry place before heating.)
- Gas ranges: Place the block on a burner over a low flame.
- Electric ranges: Place a metal spacer (eg wok ring, pastry tin with removable base) on the stove, to keep the salt block at least half an inch above the heating element.
- After 20 minutes, turn up the heat to low-medium.
- After 10 minutes at low-medium, the salt block will be hot enough for cooking. (You can test this by flicking a drop of water onto the slab; if it sizzles, the temperature is high enough.)
- Add the food of your choice, cook & serve. No seasoning necessary.
- After use, gently clean your salt plate with a damp cloth.
- Do not use detergent or place the plate under running water.
- NOT suitable for dishwashers.
- Always ensure your salt plate is completely dry before the next use.
