Why The Salt Cannon Is Better

I Never Thought I’d Make It

When I launched the Pepper Cannon, people asked for a matching salt mill.

"NO", I said.

Then, like a fool I continued: "inside each salt crystal is… more salt! It doesn’t have any added flavor/aroma qualities that are improved by grinding, and it doesn’t degrade like pepper when pre-ground."

I made my case for why willing customers shouldn't want what they want, but they persisted. Fine. "If more than 300 people preorder it, we'll make it."

Surely there are no more than 72 people who want a Salt Cannon companion for their Pepper Cannon...

The People Had Spoken

The list of people quickly exceeded 300, and so the process began. I expected we would swap out the burrs and turn it around within months, and we did!

17 months.

We tested burrs, coatings, bearings, metals, and the patience of many more than 72 people before producing a mill that can grind through over 200lbs of rock salt without appreciable performance loss.

The World’s Most Unnecessary Grind Range

The Salt Cannon has settings on both ends of the grind spectrum that probably don't need to exist. Do you need tiny amounts of fine pixie dust salt particles? Probably not. Do you need giant chunks of rock salt dispensed at nearly a tablespoon per crank? Almost certainly not. That's irresponsible. And yet, if you own the Salt Cannon you can have them.

Was making the grind range so large overkill for salt?

Absolutely.

But we have the Pepper Cannon, so overkill is probably just the right amount of kill for us

Don't worry: output decreases with grind size, so you can get the exact amount of salt you want at the desired consistency.

FAQs

Why a Salt Cannon?

During the Kickstarter for the Pepper Cannon, many people asked for a matching Salt Grinder.

Why pay a lot of money to over-salt my food?

Don’t.  Get a Salt Cannon to season your food with the exact amount of salt you want, at the texture you want.  (And to have the perfect companion for your Pepper Cannon)

Seriously-doesn't it put out a lot of Salt?  Maybe too much?

The Salt cannon is optimized for grinding salt, not for increased output (like the Pepper Cannon).  Due to the burr geometry it’s about 30% slower than the Pepper Cannon.  Like the Pepper Cannon, output decreases with grind size, so you can reduce the output to a nearly invisible whisper of salt powder if you want.  Or a raging waterfall of salt chunks-up to you.

Can I grind pepper in a Salt Cannon?

Yes, at about 70% of the speed.  Ironically, the Salt Cannon is probably the second fastest pepper mill around.

Can I get the Salt Cannon in a different color?

Not at this time.  

Is there a warranty?

Yes, the Salt Cannon is covered against defects materials and craftsmanship for 1 year.

Salt and Metal. Will the Salt Cannon rust/corrode?

Eventually, yes.  Salt, oxygen, water, and most metals react with corrosion/rust eventually.  The aluminum parts are hard anodized to prevent this reaction, but scratches can expose the Aluminum and result in corrosion.  The steels used inside are stainless, but even stainless steels have a limited lifespan in a salt environment.  We combat this eventuality by making parts built of corrosion resistant materials that are user replaceable, so that if properly maintained the Salt Cannon can last indefinitely.

Where is the Salt Cannon Made?

MÄNNKITCHEN is a US company and we work with many different suppliers. The Salt Cannon is manufactured by an exceptional partner in China. It's very difficult to find quality manufacturing partners that provide both outstanding quality and value. We are always looking for top shelf suppliers and if you know of-or represent one, please contact us!

When will The Salt Cannon arrive?

Pre-orders containing the Salt Cannon have a published ETA of Fall 2022 (all items in an order ship together), and shipping notifications will be sent automatically once it’s on the way. Thanks for your patience!

How is the Salt Cannon different than the Pepper Cannon?

Titanium and ceramic parts replace many of the stainless steel parts which makes the Salt Cannon more expensive to build. For now it's priced the same as the Pepper Cannon.

Great marketing

I think your approach and attitude is to be commended. You worked to figure out how to make the salt cannon so it would not degrade and hold up. You apologized for the high cost of the pepper cannon due to not enough orders. I am a manufacturer and understand completely and was sold on the pepper cannon justly because you wanted a great product no matter what. Great work and best of luck. I have a set coming my way for my birthday and cannot wait to check out the quality.

Awesome

I have not ordered this yet. That said. If it works even 1/250th as good as the Pepper Cannon, this is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I will now go order it and confirm my suspicions...

Fantastic

I don’t have one yet and this is the internet so I feel completely qualified to write a review.

You really can’t ask for more! This is a great pair to my pepper canon and the prefect stocking stuffer for the children under 4 in your extended family!
