We’re all for fancy salts like Hawaiian Red Alaea salt, South African flake, and Pink Himalayan salt, but how much difference does it really make when you’re using it as a simple seasoning? It’s really all about the presentation, and there’s where Croatian-based Boir comes in. An interdisciplinary duo of product designer and graphic designer turned chef, Boir has created a unique salt experience with their project SAL⊥. The idea behind Salt is that, with a few simple yet refined pieces and some time, you can grow and harvest your own salt from the comfort of your home. Here’s how it works–you pour the bottle of Nin 28 Bé° (concentrated Adriatic sea water) into the ceramic vessel, expose it to sunlight until the salt crystals appear, and then harvest your salt with the hand-polished, t-shaped Inox steel tool. From the oil-finished oak case to the ceramic vessel inside, each piece is created by Croatian artisans and hand-finished with care to make each set unique.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
