I've always used salt cellars but I wonder if a shaker would be easier to use, as you can use just one hand.
This Norpro adjustable shaker looks ideal and has good reviews on Amazon.
Since I last posted in this thread in 2007, I have added a couple of salt cellars to my collection and also bought three or four of these Norpro shakers. They do "leak" a bit with very fine salt, if your turn them over and shake to loosen clumped salt. (And also cinnamon, because I use one for my cinnamon/sugar mix).
They are also handy for other things that are used for "dusting" - one holds cornstarch and another powdered sugar (with a couple of the SecaPac desiccant thingys to keep that from clumping).
This is a good price, they were 12.99 when I bought mine. I actually bought five - and am now wondering where I put the other one... Must be a "senior" moment...
In any event, I ALWAYS have a spoon (or more than one) in the salt cellars - as you can see in the photo on the previous page. DO NOT LEAVE AN ALUMINUM OR OTHER METAL SPOON in the salt - it will pit it - take my word for it, I speak from personal experience. I have had salt eat through the bottom of an aluminum salt shaker that was not emptied before it was put into storage. Plastic measuring spoons are CHEAP and with one right in the container, you don't have to look for one when you need it.
