When it comes to everyday cooking, don’t forget about all the fancy and expensive salt pans that have been popping up on shelves in recent years. Good old fashioned table salt is the only thing you need to season almost any meal you prepare. In many cases, it is not only the least expensive option, but also the most effective.
Almost every recipe you read that doesn’t ask for a specific type of salt has been written with table salt in mind. Unlike coarse kosher salt or unstable sea salt, small crystals of table salt are remarkably uniform in size and weight, making it easy to standardize measurements for consistent results.
