These Saladmaster food cutters are probably one of the coolest and most functional pieces of kitchenalia out there! Designed in 1947 by Harry Lemmons, the Saladmaster proved a huge success and is still being manufactured today, with very few changes from the original design. I’ve only ever come across a handful of these graters in all my years of hunting, but amazingly I’ve managed to find two of them in the past few weeks! When I spotted the first one I decided to hold onto it – we feed our pups a raw food diet, and this machine does a better job of grating carrots than an electric grater, plus it’s way better looking! But obviously I can’t be too greedy, so when I was lucky enough to find the second Saladmaster I knew I had to share! This version comes with all five cones (shredding, stringing, slicing, waffling and a ‘demi-French cut’), along with a guard, its original booklet and two other pieces (which in hindsight I don’t think belong to the grater at all!). There’s some pitting to the chrome and the rubber feet are a bit worn, but on the whole it’s still in decent nick – and still super handsome!
I can’t wait to show off our Saladmaster in our new Jozi kitchen, and I’m certain that whoever buys this one will be just as excited – and just as happy with how well it chops and slices!
Dimensions: 28cm high x 37cm at its widest; Each cone measures 10cm high x 11cm at its widest
