The little salt containers is sensible for daily use on the table, or for entertaining . If I were using for entertaining more than 4 persons I think 2 of these on the table would be better than one. It is sturdy and looks very attractive. The little spoon sits in the salt well and does not fall out. Large hands and fingers would struggle, as with any small or individual salt pot, lol! Having said that, my husband manages ok with it, lol!
