The Salad Cutter Bowl makes salad preparation easier than ever. You can fill an entire bowl with a salad in less than 60 seconds. All the convenience without the mess and hassle of a cutting board. It makes fruit and veggie salads. Its slices, serves and strain quickly and easily. The wave cam design lifts and slits away from your ingredients and sets them up for a perfect criss cross cut.

I tested this thing last night. I pulled both pieces out of the box, filled the bowl with my salad stuff — a boring assortment of lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, and carrots — and immediately learned that only a quarter of that amount would fit inside it. Although the package promised that my salad would be done in 60 seconds (also, Done in 60 Seconds would clearly be the worst Nicolas Cage movie), I spent the first three minutes pre-chopping my ingredients so they'd fit in the tiny bowl and then another couple of minutes taking more lettuce out, while trying to find the right spot for the tomato.
According to the box, I should've made, like, six salads in that amount of time, but I was still hesitantly slicing two handfuls of lettuce and wondering why it wasn't working. I was legit ready to chuck the entire thing into the yard, when my boyfriend pointed out that I'd put it together backwards: There are two pieces and I'd flipped the base upside down. (Yes, Barry Lewis did the same thing and no, you don't want me around if you're building IKEA furniture).
After putting the cutting board piece right-side up, we were in business ... sort of. The end result was kind of chopped, but trying to slice the tomato through a pile of lettuce turned it into a squishy salad soup. Plus, the cucumber and the carrot chunks were still too big to eat in one bite, and the cutting board is made of such soft plastic that it was geometrically scarred after one use.
Technically the bowl did work, but it took way more than one minute, even without my poor attempts at spatial awareness. Chopping each veggie individually would be easier and less messy, and you wouldn't have a two-part salad bowl to clean afterward.
On the bright side, the bowl looks like it would be the perfect size to hold a large order of Wendy's fries. We'll call that a win.
