The “with a pinch of salt shaker” emulates the gesture of putting “a pinch of salt” in a meal. The user simply slides the halves of the shaker, as if handling the salt directly. As the halves slide past each other an opening is formed, out of which the salt is disposed. This gives the user a lot of control over the amount of salt released. When the shaker is not being used, the salt is protected from moisture – and as such the salt remains dry and crisp, as is waits to be used in the next meal.
