Is that an Alton Brown salt cellar in the lower left hand corner?

Posted February 8, 2006 link

No, but it is virtually identical from what I can tell.  I just took a look at the Alton Brown online shop, and it appears to be the same thing - except mine has a small notch in the lid for a sugar spoon to stick out (though I have sugar cubes in it right now). It would work for salt just as well I would think.  My wife bought me the three glass-lined canisters (you can see them in the picture) to store my beans as well as the matching sugar bowl.

I think the last time I posted to this thread, I had a little thermoblock sunbeam next to my mazzer ... or I may have even been using a delonghi kg100.

the update is below, and the update to the update: i just put in a little drain for the drip tray ... It'll get a test tomorrow morning.

I like the cabinet Jon!  Its cool how there is a roll of paper towels on the edge.  I have these dreams of when I move out of my tiny NYC apartment and into a real house and then I can have a much bigger cabinet.   I'll probably do I what I always do: copy JonR!!!!  Hehehe.

pssst, you need an illy can instead of that clear plastic cup to put a brush into!  =)

I can't remember the last time I posted to this thread, but this is one of my favorite threads to read (right after the LOOK OUT JONR thread!).  Here's my setup.  Not much new in the last year.  A bigger apartment would allow me to put my grinder next to my machine.

hehehehe - I'm very pleased with the tagex cleanup+paint job, and I'm very excited to have a grinder that makes my Mazzer Mini seem small and unstable by comparison.  The Super-Jolly rocks.

Sweeeeeeeet!  Hopefully I can stop in Baton Rouge soon and get an espresso at chez Brunson   :-)
