Pinching coarse salt from a bowl makes sense when you’re working at the stove, but for table use, a salt mill is the way to go. Salt mills are designed to grind coarse specialty salts with flavor nuances that bloom when sprinkled on finished foods. Any mill worth its salt should have a noncorrosive grinding mechanism; a transparent body so you don’t confuse the salt with pepper; and an adjustable grind. The three shown above fit the bill.
