Olive Wood Double Salt & Pepper Pot / Egg Cup

Hand carved olive wood multi-function pot. Rustic and made from all-natural materials, this will make a beautiful addition to your kitchen. As well as being a spice, salt, pepper, and herb pot, this practical piece doubles as an egg cup. With two perfectly-sized cups, serve two boiled eggs at once. 

Pair with our tiny olive wood spoons for a matching set.

WHO MADE YOUR POT?

The contemporary wooden products are hand carved in a Nairobi workshop run by one of the founders of the popular Maasai Market in Westlands, Zephania.

These items are made from Wild Olive wood that is all sustainably sourced from Zephania’s own plantations in his hometown, Kissi, where he continually re-plants trees.

CARE

Olive wood has an excellent reputation for being harder and less porous than other woods. We recommend hand washing your wooden utensils with a mild detergent and warm water. Avoid boiling water and dishwashers as high temperatures may cause the wood to expand and split. Always towel dry after washing to prevent moisture cracks.

The same measures apply to wooden utensils with horn or bone accents.

Treat them once a month with a food safe mineral oil (we like to use olive oil). Simply rub in a small amount with a soft cloth to condition the wood and restore its warm, polished look.
