yeah...but pouring salt is a very intricate and tedious action. especially since you have to pour it into tiny salt shakers and the like. it NEEDS that spout. how about a PLASTIC spout instead of a metal one? plastic is always around to save the day.

O.M.G. you summed it up perfectly! Just the thought of opening up the spout on a box of salt sends chills up and down my spine. I understand Ashley's point, but maybe you could use a funnel...

Or, and this is just an idea, you could start using sea salt, and get one of those nifty salt grinder things. My dad had the old school one where it was a little bowl and a masher piece, it was fun to grind our own salt. But they have them now where one side is for salt, and one side is for peppercorn, and you can grip the thing, get a workout for your hands, AND have healthier salt without the pour spout. :-) just an idea.

Sorry....can't relate. I was always the kid in school that ran their fingernails over the blackboard. Didn't bother me a bit.

is the future and the future is NOW! I agree with Allyson. Both salt and pepper are better when fresh ground.

What's your beef with Corey Feldman? (or are you talking about "Reality TV" Corey, who cries and stuff like that?

Or just buy those disposable salt & pepper shakers. White trash, perhaps, but no nasty spout. And if you try to pretend that you need pourable salt to measure for recipes, I personally have never seen a recipe that calls for more than 1/4 you can just shake till it tastes right.

i'd just be happy if they'd stop putting that paper over the spout, that's as easy to remove as a discount store price tag (read:impossible). I'm like Dakota girl, nails + chalkboard= no problem, but weird paper/wood texture stuff creeps me out no end. Like popsicle sticks and hard to remove sticky paper, when it tears and makes that...whispery sound...that you can FEEL in your fingers {shudder}.

Short answer. Toss the salt. It isn't good for you anyway.

There are salt dispensers with plastic spouts. As far as recipes go, I've needed a cup of salt for a recipe (as well as lesser amounts). But hey, plastic spout.

Aw. I missed you complaining about Corey. Come on, UB, say it one time for me... Shut up, Corey!!

Bergles, try doing a little homework before asking dumb questions. That's not even the only example. Just the first one on the google search for this site.

Dude, just squeeze the container of anything with a metal spout and it'll pop out enough where you don't have to dig you fingernails into it. As for the salt, I have to agree with whoever said get a grinder and some sea salt, much better flavor.

before you try to stab your fingernail, hold the metal spout down with your thumb, and pry a spatula or knife or something flat and bend the tip of the spout away from the cardboard, giving you a handier way of opening the container; a little pull tab. peace.
