Meat and dairy salt shakers


We have noted that people may eat meat and dairy at the same table simultaneously, if they have a visible reminder on the table to prevent them from sharing food. However, they should not share food.

The diners should also not share utensils, including a pitcher of water, because food tends to stick to utensils. This is why we generally keep separate food containers - salt shakers, etc - for table use for meat and dairy.

(Rama, Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 88:2)

Have a great day,
