I try to serve a wide variety of fruits and vegetables to my family in the form of various salads. The Presto Professional Salad Shooter makes what could be a laborious task quite easy and simple. This is one of the most-used products in my kitchen! I find it a lot more convienient that hauling out my food processor every time I need something grated or sliced.
I use it to shred/slice apples, lettuce, cabbage, green appers, potatoes, cheese, and too many other things to list here. The chamber where you place the food to be chopped is good-sized, and adjustable. There are accessories that come with the Salad Shooter that you can use for thicker slices and fancy ripple cuts. It's really fun and easy to use... just oald it up, point it at your container or bowl, and shoot it out of the front nozzle. Clean-up is a snap... just toss the parts you use into the dishwasher, as they are dishwasher safe. The unit is small and stores easily. This is actually my second Salad Shooter. I used the first one for 10 years before it wore out! I look forward to at least 10 years with this more powerful Professional model.
