…Shaking salt is a good way to pass the time?

Salt Hourglass

In a definitively different way of looking at common objects, Nariaki Satoh has created a saltshaker that looks and functions like an hourglass. Though it can’t be used to tell actual time (since you do plan on actually using the salt, and thus, changing the amount of time inside of the shaker, right?), it can be used to pass time quite effectively while waiting for dinner to be ready.
