I have a bit of a love affair going on with my Salad Shooter– so I thought I should just get it all out in open and tell you about it.
Over 10 years ago I happened upon a yard sale and they had something wonderful- A Salad Shooter. OK- so I’m kind of a sucker for fun looking kitchen gadgets- so it is no wonder that I bought it (for probably less than a dollar). But this is not one that ended up on the back of my cabinet- seriously I use that little thing almost every day.
Mostly I shred cheese with it. But the other day I made carrot salad- in the baby carrots when- out came the shreds. I have never liked box graters. They kind of scare me (I picture taking off a knuckle or something). I have memories as a teenager of a really tired arm from grating cheese in my mom’s kitchen.
About a month ago a piece of plastic broke off the grater and I was without my Salad Shooter(and a bit in mourning). My husband kept telling me to get a new one. But I felt sad and the frugalista in me didn’t really want to spend the money on a whole new one when just the grater part had broken.
So I ended up buying just that part for about $7. I was happy.. my old friend was back again.
Do you have a favorite kitchen gadget you can’t live without??
