"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

inspector gadget...

...a month, really?  A month, no more than that...since I posted.  Well then, you missed all the fun.  And believe me that is 'fun' as in the worst way, the most sarcastic way possible.  But...I'm going to spare you for now and tell you about my new discovery

I love gadgets, especially kitchen gadgets.  My dad did too.  If he were still here I think we could spend an afternoon browsing through a kitchen gadget museum.  It's fun!

For several weeks, on my facebook feed, I've been seeing this gadget that is supposed to turn salad making into a breeze.  You've probable seen it to.  Well, I just had to buy it and test it out for y'all.

 It's a little, really little, dome shaped strainer with slicing sections and a solid bottom with a handle one it.  The idea being that you put all your salad ingredients into the strainer, rinse them off, and then begin slicing.  Hopefully you are using a very sharp knife and the correct angle.  (on the enclosed instructions)
 Commence with the slicing through each section, then turn the white section around 1/4 and begin slicing again.
 After going through the slicing sections twice this is what my salad looked like.  Pretty much looks the same as it did before I started slicing.
 My peppers were barely touched...maybe they were to thick.  But if I have to chop them up to begin with then what's the point?

And tomagoes, once again barely touched.    I'm not sure what the problem is.  I was using a sharp knife and did go through each slot twice.  I was a little disappointed overall.  It turns out I had to take everything out and start from scratch.  I do like the overall idea and perhaps a different type of lettuce, such as iceberg, would have worked better.  Or maybe the angle.  I'll keep working with this and let you khow but for now I say...don't bother.

I was not compensated in any way for this review, in fact I purchased this item myself and these opinions are solely mine. Not even the dog had any input!

Hope all my peeps are well, this hot weather can leave town but I'm not ready for Fall.  Just give me normal Seattle August weather and I'll be happy.  Stay safe.  Shine.


  1. LOL- I have been looking at that and thinking what a cool idea item to have in the kitchen. Thanks for testing it out for us----better you than me! lol I have gotten 'taken' on a few of those sweet TV items. xo Diana

  2. Win some, and lose some, pity it wasn't as good as it should be.
