A salad shooter is a must have for my kitchen. I love it, and use it so much, I have given it as gifts to others also. If you love to move your salads and other dishes up an easy notch, buy a salad shooter today. You won't regret it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Babooshka AMAZING!
I first purchased the small version of this product about 25 years ago. Then I found the Professional model a few years later and purchased it also.
I use this product more than I use almost anything else in my well-stocked-with-small-appliances kitchen. I am a gourmet cook who prepares food every day.
I made this purchase because the Professional one that I had owned for probably 22 years finally broke the shredding cone. Parts are available from several on-line sources, but they were almost as expensive as the new entire appliance.
It continues to be as wonderful as the original and I heartily recommend this product to anyone who doesn't like a box grader, a mandolin, a food processor or anything else that's complicated to operate and difficult to clean. Can you tell I'm a huge fan and didn't cook for the 5 days it took my Salad Shooter to get here!!!!!!!

I reach for this appliance just about every time I prepare a meal. Great for grating cheese. Easy clean up. I ordered this to replace my first one that I had completely worn out after 10 + years.

This is the best appliance I have ever owned. It is great for so many things. Grating cheese (better than buying the pregrated bag cheese with preservative and chemicals added), grating carrots (I make a lot of carrot cakes throughout the year and grating 3 cups of carrots by hand is a major chore), slicing potatoes (for fried potatoes or au gratin potatoes) and grated potatoes (for hashbrowns). Once you have tried this you will wonder how you lived without it. I buy them for gifts for all of my friends and family. We have tried other brands, but they all just mush up you food. Insted of shreaded carrots you end up with mushy carrot juice. I have owned one for over 10 years and it is still going. They are very durable.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Treblig It functions good for a portable unit.
The cones are sharp with many to choose from. The locking part of the 2 part pusher is annoying. Some food slices can get stuck in between parts without being ejected nearly wrecking the tool. My comparison to a popular stand mixer attatchment this portable product is difficult to use and underpowered. Its past the return policy and I'll just use it for softer veggies and maybe try some chilled cheese grating. The plastic stains gross with carrots. Otherwise the product is good and functional if you have nothing to compare it to.

I've owned the smaller version for years and decided to try the professional one. It makes the smaller one looks like a midget. It makes the best fried potatoes ever. I think because it slices them thin the seasoning gets into them better - yummy. Great for chesse, radishes, cucumbers, carrots etc. I will never be without one that's for sure. With the larger professional version you can put the entire potato into it. With the smaller one you have to cut the potato into half but it's still worth it; easier then cutting them up with a knife just to have the thin slices. Give either size a try - you won't be dissapointed.

i cant live without my salad shooter. I used my old one for years til it was dropped & broken & had to have a replacement right away- wish they carried them in the store but had to order online and wait til it got here- its bigger than my old one but does the job!
Rated 1 out of 5 by NorthWoodsHermit Not up to Expectations
I found this product cut/shredded very slowly,
might be good for a small quanity of product.
Cutting/shredding cone turn too slow,
so I bought a Oster food processor for $17.00
more, that works much faster, and has a finer shredding blade. I have stored the presto in my cabinet ... until I can find a use for it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DRAGONSTU Great Product
My husband and I had one of these many years ago and used it until it died! We love this thing! This one is bigger than the first one we owned and it's definitely more sturdy. It has a larger feeding tube and works great without the hassel of cleaning a large appliance. The pieces are easy to store and I don't have to leave it out on the counter like a regular food processor. I would recommend hand washing all the parts instead of using the dishwasher as the instructions state. It will lengthen the life of this product. We put the pieces of our last one in the dishwasher and they began to come apart after two years. I would definitely recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mymommae Love this product!!!!
Had this product 20 + years ago and finally had to retire it about 2 years ago. Could not find another one anywhere .... after trying other products that said they could grate cheese nothing was like my old Presto Salad Shooter. On a whim I checked eBay and found some on there.....checked Walmart and taa daa there it was ...... Had to order one from Walmart.com.....so pleased with this product I use it all the time.....Love it....
Rated 4 out of 5 by PattyY I like the larger size. I had an older, smaller Salad Shooter. I thought the motor would be stronger. I had hoped to receive a smaller grater blade with the package instead of 2 the same size. Overall, I do like it and it is easy to clean.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamelou Have had the original Salad Shooter (smaller version) for years and just loved it. The new unit is more heavy duty & a little larger. I use it for shredding & slicing. Works very well and fits in a drawer, not taking up valuable counter space. I look forward to even more years use from the updated model than with the old one. Great little item for the kitchen. Saved me from purchasing an expensive food processor.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nomas68 A Pleasant Surprise
I had never used a Salad Shooter before and purchased this one only after much research on-line and after rejecting the manual "Mandoline" type slicer as too dangerous. Right now, I'm still in the experimental stage, but so far have been more than satisfied with how easy it is to use. I purchased the Professional grade because it comes not only with four separate cones but also with a "funnel guide" which helps aim the food where I want it. I have used it to chop nuts, make bread crumbs, slice and dice veggies, and to make julienne carrots and celery. As advertised, this appliance cleans up easily.
If you love vegetables, cooked and raw, but don't love the work of preparation, I recommend this Salad Shooter. It will pay for itself in time and effort saved.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lzeshpr Satisfied
Love it! Makes it so easy to whip up a salad. I love the fact that you can use the shredder on most veggies and get theme in every bite. Well worth it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mjwaldschm Even Better than the Original
Finally after 20 years needed to replace my old Salad Shooter. The new one thus far seems much more durable and powerful. So I should get another 20 years out of this one.
Makes shredding and slicing so much easier with super easy clean up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SWMichgander Salad shooter
Works fine on most produce, but lettuce can be a challenge. Lettuce seems to be difficult to shred with this machine. Lettuce will clog in the slicing blade.
Rated 2 out of 5 by 1Response Much work for Poor Results
I was excited to get this product after reading many of the reivews. I was dissapointed. It's small enough as I desired, but a lot of effort to set it up & clean it only to get poor or incomplete cutting and shredding results. not good with mushrooms, onions baby carrots, green peppers & cabbage. I do much better with the old-fashion knife & shredding board.
Rated 2 out of 5 by SmokeyMountain Not as expected
The food I tried to slice got stuck in the shute & had to be removed with a spatula. It was frustrating. The salad shooter was returned.
Rated 5 out of 5 by OKIECOOKER Great as ever!
The Professional Salad Shooter is the best of the Salad Shooters offered by Presto. It is heavy duty and will last for a long time and works much faster than the others offered.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Crystalwolf Presto salad shooter
I have only had the product a few weeks and used it once. It worked well and cleaned up easily. I look forward to finding out how well it holds up and all the capabilities it has. For the money it is easier than grating by hand and not a chore to get out and clean like my food processor.
Rated 1 out of 5 by charlieyoga poor design, materials
For a product that has been around as long as this one we were extremely disappointed with every aspect on the first use. I wanted to return it my wife declined because she didn't want it to go to someone else.
1. Sits too low to empty foods into a large bowl.
2. Chops things up too much.
3. Cone shaped product director clogs.
1. First use carrots stained housing and could not be cleaned in a dishwasher, run immediately after use.
2. The stain is permanent. Other products made of plastic do not stain like this.
This is a stinker, a waste of money, it looks good out of the box, but once you use it you will hate it. Buy something else and look for it in a yard sale because that's where they'll all end up.

This is my second Salad Shooter. The first one lasted over 25 years.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LLPTB Love it
This is my second one, I had the first for 15 yrs and use it all the time. Great time saver
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pararigger101 The Shooter is the best, I love to use it, and clesn up is a snap.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rikki3 Cuts down my salad prep time to seconds...
I've owned 2 previous Salad Shooters but not the "Professional" version. It is bigger and has more attachments, but the motor isn't any stronger than my previous ones. They did last about 5 years before I burned them out, but as I said I'm disappointed the motor isn't stronger.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ChefJoy Best Kitchen Gadget for 25 Years
The kitchen gadet I've ever owned. I received one for a wedding present 23 years ago. It finally broke. I lived two years without one and I will never go without one in my kitchen not even for a day.
Rated 4 out of 5 by AllNamesTaken27 Pleasantly surprised
I was pleased with how easy this is to use and to clean. It appears there are some additional blades, which may be super handy. I have used this for grating cheese and slicing vegetables. For both, there is some left over food-product that does not get sliced and tends to go between the blade and the funnel on the slicer. At first this was annoying; but when I saw the result of the slices and tasted the cheese that is fresh grated versus buying already-grated packaged cheese … I figured I can lose a little volume for great quality. I had always wondered how people got cucumber salad sliced super thin … now I know. Oh – and the super-thin sliced onions to put on sandwiches or in a salad... ummm ... it is nice to get a bit of fresh onion flavor without the the mouth shock of a bite that happens to be pure onion.
Oh – my second drawback … the plastic around the “shooter” and “blade” gets stained from Carrots and dark yellow cheese. Beets too … by the way, if you like fresh, raw, crunchy beets in your salad … this machine is fantastic! I have used the shredder and the thin slicers … both come out great. No steaming necessary ... just remember to scrub or peel the outer layer so it doesn't taste like dirt.
The cord could stand to be about six inches longer, but that is easily corrected with an extension cord. From what I read, the cordless version of the salad shooter does not have the power that this one has … so it is worth the little extra to get corded.
