I have just added a new piece of home appliance to my (small) kitchen – Philips’ Viva Collection Salad Maker.
I happened to chance upon the demo video of this product on Philips Singapore’s website not long ago. After watching it, I thought this surely will be a good “helper” in my kitchen especially when making salads or popiah (Chinese spring rolls). Well, I am never good at the manual shredder and would always need the help of DS!
This Salad Maker comes with 5 pieces of changeable slicing and shredding (or I would call it grating) disks plus a French fries cutting disk. It is pretty easy to operate too.
Thanks to my dear friend for getting it for me at a very attractive discount for I think the price of S$169 (without discount) would be a little expensive to pay for.
Trying out the Salad Maker for the first time with cucumber and carrot.
Nicely shredded, all done within seconds. There are two shredding disks for different thickness.
And here’s my dinner last night – my very own version of Thai-style salad, made using shredded cucumber & carrot, cellophane noodles (冬粉) prawns, squids, parsley and serai. Sauce was made using a mixture of fresh lime juice, fish sauce, olive oil, chopped garlic and chili padi.
Cutting (slicing) of cucumber has never been this easy! Within seconds, sliced cucumbers of 1.2mm thick were ready to be used for my sandwich dinner tonight. 🙂 The slicing disks come in 1.2mm and 2.4mm thickness.
I know this Salad Maker will become extremely handy when I make popiah again. Shredding of turnips, carrot etc will become so easy and fast, and without having to rely on DS’ help! 🙂
Oops, I need more storage space in my kitchen!
