My Favorite Kitchen Gadgets #1: Saladmaster Machine

The other day I was exploring YouTube for new recipes and I found a recipe for Salad Cake and it caught my attention so I clicked over to view the video.  I watched and noticed the gadget she was using.  It was a one-piece manually-operated machine.  I began to do research on Saladmaster.  I found a website and completed a form and I ended up getting a call from James Tanti.  He sent a consultant out to me who had called to confirm her appointment.  Liza came over and cooked a full vegetarian meal for my hubby and I.  I was so impressed with her presentation, I decided to go the Open House she invited us to in Orange County. I also wanted to find out how to get a Saladmaster for Free.  Yes, I said FREE.

I am now a consultant and I can tell you how to get a Saladmaster machine for FREE. Send me a message:

Here is a video of my Dealer using a Saladmaster Machine in her cooking class.  I have one of my own now and it saves me time when chopping, and slicing my fresh fruits and veggies.  I love having the Saladmaster, because it makes it so much easier to east vegetables and fruit.

When you start your salad with cabbage it is much healthier, and the salad lasts longer because cabbage is a more durable leaf.  The Rainbow Salad can be made with 5 ingredients.  Keep it simple and experiment.

Here’s the ingredients I use.

Rainbow Salad

1/4 wedge Cabbage (green and purple)

1 apple

1 zucchini

1 cucumber

1/4 sweet potato/yam

1 carrot

Dressing:

1 lemon

1 oranger

cut in fours and juice on the Saladmaster machine.

This Saladmaster Machine is my #1 Favorite kitchen gadget.

My Top 5 Most Wanted Kitchen Appliances #1

Which Appliances on your Top 5 Wish List?                                                                                                        (Leave a Comment below.)

There are so many techie gadgets around for the kitchen. I dream and daydream about which appliances I would love to have in my kitchen so now.  I will share them with you in a series of posts. 

1.  A Bread Making Machine

Since I have gone gluten-free, I have found it difficult to eat bread that is affordable and with a nice bread texture.  Making healthy bread at home would be awesome. The store-bought bread like Udi’s Gluten-Free Bread is tough in texture and you have to buy it frozen in order for it to last without molding.  I have tried Pamela’s pancake mix but not her bread mix.  I bought some  Bread Mix from Bob’s Red Mill.  When I bought it I did not realize I needed a machine to make the recipe.  

There are two particular ones I would love to have.

Cuisinart Bread Machine 

Fresh Bread doesn’t get any fresher – or easier – than this! Cuisinart offers expert engineering in smooth brushed stainless to deliver a sensational-looking Convection Bread Maker that automatically adjusts speed and timing, and circulates air while baking. Exclusive Low Carb, Gluten-Free, and Artisan Dough settings are just 3 of 16 preset menu options available with the touch of a button. Cuisinart adds 3 crust colors and 3 loaf sizes, to give bread lovers a choice of over 100 bread, dough, cake – and even jam – combinations!
