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.
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.
When heated, it will change color dramatically, and may develop fissures. It may also patina with use, taking on color from the proteins cooked on it. Don’t get upset by the behavior of your salt block. Salt is a complicated, wily, unpredictable substance. That is what gives it much of its charm.
Using Himalayan salt blocks at cold room and room temperatures requires no special instructions. Just prepare and serve the food on a salt platter and serve. Keep in mind that the moister the foods the quick it will pick up saltiness from the pink salt block.
