Salt cubes – because we use too much of it.

Salt is one of the most useful spices for cooking. And for a long time essential for our ability to preserve foods for longer than a few days. Salted herring. Salted salmon. Salted meat. You name it. Without it long sea voyages would hardly have been possible, and the great discoveries possibly not discovered. Way back, salt nodes in rocks or mines were worth their weight in gold and an excellent trading commodity. Now, however, when salt is readily available, we tend to use too much. Hence this idea; the Kakujio. The Kakujio is a 2.5cc salt cube. Enough for cooking. Designed by the De Meyboom Lab in the Netherlands by Yasuhito Hirose and Ryohei Yoshiyuki it was featured in the Muji Awards 02.
