Easy Steps to Cooking on Himalayan Salt
Heating Himalayan salt slabs requires following some basic steps. Allow between 30 to 45 minutes to achieve the desired cooking temperature. Your Himalayan salt plate will crackle slightly while heating, especially the first time, as micro-fissures appear, giving the pink salt the elasticity it needs to expand as it increases in temperature.
Heating will change the appearance of your Himalayan Salt plate, so if you are in love with your salt plate just the way it is, you may wish to buy a different block especially for heating and cooking. We offer Cookware and Tableware Grades of Himalayan salt plates so you can have a beautifully fractured Tableware Grade salt plate for serving at room temperature or chilled, and a structurally robust Cookware Grade salt plate for cooking on.
