One lifestyle firm believes it has spotted a gap in the market and has come up with a bizarre piece of kit designed to make this more of an event.
Smalt incorporates a Bluetooth connected smart speaker and mood lighting, to take the stress out of shaking salt.
Users will also be able to monitor their salt intake via Smalt’s app.
