Hourglass salt shaker / salt shaker

Hourglass salt shaker

The Hourglass Salt Shaker can help one to control daily salt intake by restricting the flow from the shaker. A chamber within the shaker holds the salt. When the shaker is inverted, salt will flow through an hourglass ‘funnel’ into the main volume. Only this restricted serving of salt will be released from the shaker when it is re-inverted and shaken over meals.
