An adorably named “salt pig” isn’t exactly what it sounds like. It’s actually a small container with a curved opening that provides easy access to the salt inside. The opening is usually ceramic, but the Prepara Pop Savor puts a different spin on the traditional design. It fashions the cover from soft silicone, which you can close to protect the salt from absorbing moisture in a hot kitchen.
Gadget name: Prepara Pop Savor
It looks like: Contrary to what you might think, it does not look like a pig. Instead, it’s a small ceramic vessel with a closeable lid made from soft silicone.
How it’s supposed to work: The silicone cover is supposed to keep out dirt and moisture.
How we tested it: We filled the cavity with salt, sugar, and ice cream sprinkles and left the container next to the stove while frying a pound of bacon (oh, the irony).
How it actually works: As promised, the durable “pop” top easily flipped open and kept its contents shielded from splattered grease and moisture.
Drawbacks: We only had one gripe: The 3½-inch opening was a little cramped for a few testers with large hands.
Good to know: The ceramic base has a 1-cup capacity and the included ½-teaspoon measuring spoon is accurate and fits nicely in the silicone loop at the rear of the container.
Overall: An improvement on the traditional salt pig design (which doesn’t usually have a closeable top), the Pop Savor’s lid is easy to open and close with the flick of a finger.
