Himalayan Salt Block - 4x8x2" Brick
This brick shaped Himalayan Salt Block is perhaps our most versatile shape:
- It is inexpensive, making it a great starter block for those who want to try a hand preparing food on blocks of 600 million year old chucks of pink salt from Pakistan, or for professionals looking for an economical size.
- The rectangular size means you can play around with how food is arranged on the salt brick, for a more dramatic visual presentation.
- Likewise, weighing less means they are less massive and quicker to heat up, making them great for more spontaneous use or rapid service in restaurants.
- Professionals take note: When you are heating them up to cook on them, you can actually fit two on a single burner! This is great for professionals who want to prepare multiple orders with limited burner space in the kitchen.
The Meadow’s Himalayan salt blocks are the best available anywhere, hand-picked from the purest seams of 600 million year old salt deposits deep under the rugged Punjabi landscape. Suitable for freezing to -320°F (-196°C) and heating to 900°F (482°C); no other salt block has been tested to such extremes! We literally wrote the book on cooking with Himalayan salt bricks, salt platters, salt slabs, and even salt bowls, earning the trust of everyone from Food Network stars to hard-hitting professional chefs to home cooks of every stripe.
Our Cookware Grade™ Himalayan Salt Blocks are selected for both natural beauty and structural integrity. Suitable for all uses, from saltblock freezing to frying to curing to grilling.
