Unitasker Wednesday: 60 second salad

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

Facebook knows me well. Often its ads are kitchen-related and the other day it suggested that I might want to buy a 60 second salad cutter. When I saw the video for this kitchen tool, my first thought that it would make an ideal item for a Unitasker Wednesday post. When a knife all you need to make salad, why would you want another bulky item filling up your cupboards?

Then I got thinking as well about mobility issues. For anyone with wrist problems or perhaps the use of only one hand, the 60 second salad tool would be a fantastic solution.

Although I have no mobility issues, I’ve been making a lot of salads recently. While cutting up the veggies is a simple task with the knife, it’s not the fastest process. When making a lunchtime salad, often at six o’clock in the morning, the last thing I want to do is spend a great deal of time cutting up the various components of the dish, the 60 seconds in the name of the tool is the real attention-getter here and it may just end up on my Christmas wish list.

What are your thoughts? Do any of you have the 60 second salad and swear by it? Or are you chuckling at the idea of buying this classic Unitasker item?

    It might be useful. I have arthritis in my thumbs, and when it’s in full flair, a can’t hold anything with my left hand to cut it with the knife in my right hand. I’ll consider it.

    I’ve looked at it more closely on Amazon, and I decided to order it. I would probably have trouble using the little tab on the bottom to hold on to it, but I think I could manage by putting my hand on the top on the side away from where I’m cutting.

    I don’t think this is a Unitasker any more than a knife is. All a knife does is cut things. It seems you could use this to assist cutting any number of things, and for some it could probably replace a standard cutting board.

    Intrigued by the idea, especially since it might reduce mess and waste by confining what you’re preparing to the area under that dome. However, if your knife isn’t long enough, I’m guessing things inside might slide around a bit as you try to cut through; and small round things might skid away from the blade.

    I bought this a few months ago after seeing it here. It is the perfect size for washing berries for breakfast, green beans or broccoli to microwave for lunch salad, and mushrooms for dinner. The plastic undersurface protects counters from water marks.
