Masala Dabba

What is an Indian Spice Box?

Also known as a Masala Dabba, an Indian Spice Box is an airtight tin containing 7 katori (small bowls) used to store and preserve spices in the typical Indian kitchen. Because they're not only functional, but pretty, their popularity around the world is growing exponentially.

Wendell Berry once said, "If a thing is ugly, we should ask why." Why do we make ugly things? If something is useful or practical, does it have to be ugly? Why can't it be beautiful too? Why store your spices haphazardly in ziploc bags from the grocery store or in the random containers you purchased them in? Not only is this not beautiful, it's not very practical either.

The Indian Spice Box keeps out moisture and damaging UV rays, ensuring that your spices stay fresh and keep their potency longer. In this way, it's a far more practical solution for how to store your spices. 

And, unlike most typical spice storage in the average home, it's also beautiful.

In short, it's the perfect gift for both a kitchen whiz and a culinary newbie.

Caring for Your Solid Brass Indian Spice Box

Prior to Use and for General Cleaning and Polishing: Wash your Indian spice box with a mild solution of soap and warm water. Dry thoroughly with a lint-free cloth.

How often should you clean brass? Brass requires regular dusting and cleaning to maintain its shine. Otherwise it will begin to tarnish. Exposure to water can cause corrosion. Keeping your brass routinely dusted and cleaned is a great way to make sure it is always looking its best.

Tips:

  • Use a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid using abrasive materials that can scratch the brass.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners on brass, as they can damage the finish. Also, stay away from vinegar or lemon juice, as they can be too acidic for brass.
  • Protect from Moisture. Brass can tarnish faster in humid environments. Store the brass box in a dry place and avoid exposing it to excessive moisture.
  • Do not use for storing salt. Salt can cause corrosion over time. We do not recommend using this for salt storage.
