Craig Wenger and David Turover from Chicago-based NoClean Aquariums has recently released a prototype for a patent-pending 60-second Salad Maker, which, as the name says, helps prepare salad within a minute.
The salad maker is 3D printed from nylon and injected with BPA-free PC and HDPE. The lid features 15 slits that are spaced apart enough for a knife to go through to cut the vegetable inside, while not so wide that the ingredients will fall out during chopping, or rinsing and straining.
Both the lid and the base have matching wave grooves that allow the former to be rotated, allowing crisscross cuts.
The 60-second Salad Maker is dishwasher-safe. It is currently up for backing on Kickstarter, and has already managed to reach its $5,000 goal with more than a week before campaign ends.
With food-safe filaments, 3D-printed cooking utensils have become more common, and are proving to be versatile while still keeping its simplicity. Aside from the 60-second Salad Maker, a similar product includes the Whisk Wiper that provides a mess-free way of using and cleaning a whisk.
