This Simple Gadget Will Make Salads In 60 Seconds

Salads, arguably a healthier alternative to a fried egg between two Pop-Tarts, can be pretty cumbersome to make. You have to individually wash every component of the dish, cut them up, and toss them together before you can throughly enjoy your greens.

A revolutionary new item on Kickstarter discovered a way to make an entire salad in about a minute. The 60 Second Salad Maker is a kitchen gadget that lets you wash, drain, slice, and toss your salad all at once.

Made with BPA-free cutting board material, the salad maker is specially designed with slits you can run a knife through to dice you veggies up. You can then rotate the chamber and continue dicing. Once all your greens and veggies are cut up, give it a shake and serve your salad.

The campaign was met with overwhelming response, garnering more than $170,000 in funding of a simple $5,000 goal at the time of this article’s publication. To get one of the salad makers a $14 minimum pledge is required.

We’d definitely eat more salads if we had one of these. And maybe cut back on the Pop-Tart egg sandwiches a bit, too.

This Street Food Vendor Has A Hypnotizing Sales Technique [WATCH]

Some of the best foods you’ll every try can sometimes come from vendors on the street. A recent video shows a young Chinese street food maker showing off some flashy moves by tossing what appears to be buns into the air in crazy geometric patterns.

It seems what he’s doing is actually removing the excess flour from the buns. However, the way he does it adds a ridiculous amount of flair to his sales.

Kind of almost looks like CGI. Almost.

Check out the video.

2-in-1 Kickball Makes Ice Cream When You Roll and Kick It

Kickball-Ice-Cream

Ah, kickball. The childhood pastime that’s infinitely easier than baseball and far less cardio than football. Sometimes after an epic game, it’s essential to treat yourself to some deliciously cold ice cream. Looks like you can cut the distance between the kickball field to the ice cream shop with this clever Kickball Ice Cream Maker.

All you have to do is throw cream, sugar, vanilla and any other flavorings you’d like to mix into the ball. The kickball features two compartments one for the ice cream ingredients and one for ice and rock salt. The compartments are sealed for food safety, protecting your ice cream from contaminants when playing with the ball. With all the ingredients set and sealed, you can enjoy a game of kickball with your friends and family, then gain back all those burned calories with some fresh homemade ice cream. 20 minutes of game time makes one pint of ice cream.

The Kickball Ice Cream Maker is available through Hammacher for $35.

Hipper Than Thou: the Mason Jar Coffee Maker

2

Just when you thought Mason jars were finally leaving center stage, the people over at Intelligent Design Company (based in Williamsburg of course) decided to turn it into, of all things, a coffee maker. For those of you who like to bottle your own coffee, carry it around in jars, or just want an alternative from regular ol’ drip machines, this might be your jam.

The “Pour Mason” is a pour over coffee maker, which means you pour boiling water over the grounds and let it slowly steep through a filter. Or, more precisely, a filter made from aluminum alloy and nickel finish, with a convenient metal lid attachment so you can brew directly into your jar.

The “Pour Mason” costs $35 and is available for purchase here.

Wooden Block Filters Your Coffee and ‘Remembers’ Each Cup Made

  3

If you’re looking for a unique coffee-drinking experience you just can’t get at your local shop, try this wooden coffee maker on for size.  Made by Canadiano, this pour-over wooden coffee maker is handcrafted to match up with different beans or roasts.  Whether you pick the cherry, maple, or walnut wood versions will determine the beans you brew each morning.  Maple and cherry work best with citrusy beans, while walnut suits darker roasts.

The coffee (after it’s mixed with hot water) filters through the wood, leaving behind specific oils and smells and turning each block into a personalized filter designed for your tastes.
