Yes, the salt shaker is balanced on one of its bottom edge. It took me several failed attempts before I successful balanced the salt shaker. Since then, I’ve done it twice. Basically, you just try to find the center of balance of the salt shaker. You can also pour a little salt to help, like I did. I think the salt helps make the center of balance rest not on just one point, but multiple points, the salt.
