The Handy Salt Meter is ideal for health-conscious diners. The meter hails from Japan and is used to measure the saltiness of dishes. Asian food can be healthy, but it can also be very bad for you (here's looking at you, Ramen noodles). The meter measures the salt content of liquid and semi-liquid food to let you know just how healthy what you're eating really is.
The Handy Salt Meter has an LED scale that goes from 0.3 to two. Once you get your reading, you need to do a little math (one percent equals about one gram with regard to a 100-gram portion) to get the salt content of your food. The meter should be useful for those with health problems such as high cholesterol. It's available now and sells for $19.80
