HOW DOES IT WORK?
You can use your Himalayan for cooking, presenting or preparing any food. It will add subtle, rounded notes of Himalayan pink salt to any food you use resulting in a rounded, balanced finish to any of your favourite ingredients.
HOW DO I COOK ON MY HIMALAYAN?
It’s crucial you heat your Himalayan slowly or it may crack. Start on the lowest heat setting and allow your Himalayan to acclimatise for around 15 minutes. Increase the heat a small amount and again wait another 15 minutes. Repeat this process until you’ve reached your desired temperature. If using a barbecue or appliance without temperature control, be sure to heat your Himalayan slowly in an oven first. You can use a gas hob, oven, barbecue or grill to cook with your Himalayan.
Always use thick oven gloves when handling a heated Himalayan.
CAN I USE MY HIMALAYAN FOR ANYTHING ELSE?
Absolutely - refrigerate your Himalayan for a great way to serve ice cream, sashimi or anything else that takes your fancy - place it in the fridge for 2-3 hours and it will stay cold for around the same length of time.
From crushing garlic to using it as a chopping board, your Himalayan serves as an excellent way to prepare food.
You can use your Himalayan to cure meat and fish without needing to heat it or cool it.
IS IT EASY TO CLEAN?
It really is. To clean your Himalayan, wait for it to cool down if heated and wipe it with a damp sponge. Once it’s a little wet (no need for too much water) scrub it with a steel wool or rough brush. Salt has anti-microbial properties so there’s never need for any soap. Cracks and blemishes will appear over time - it is a rock after all, and your Himalayan will develop it’s own hue.
HOW LONG WILL MY HIMALAYAN LAST?
Eventually, after many uses, it will wear down and begin to crumble. You can use the residual salt rocks as seasoning by grating them over food. Used weekly, you can expect it to last a year.
WILL ALL MY FOOD TASTE SALTY?
No. Himalayan salt is much less pungent than regular table salt. The amount of salt transferred to your food depends on the moisture content of what you're cooking or preparing. Cook anything with high moisture levels at a high temperature or use a little oil.
ISN'T SALT BAD FOR YOU?
Too much processed salt is, yes. Himalayan, which has spent millions of years sheltered from pollutants and industry delivers not just the taste sensation of organic Himalayan salt, but its 83 trace elements and minerals aid digestion, sleep, blood pressure and cell pH levels.
HOW DO I STORE MY HIMALAYAN?
Store your Himalayan in a dry, cool place with as little humidity as possible.
