I bought a ceramic knife from Target On-Line for around $45.00 that does pretty much the same thing as that Salad Master machine, and the ceramic knife won't make your veggies turn brown!

BTW, I just visited their web site. I could not find a price list anywhere on it. Never trust any company that refuses to tell you, right up front, how much a product is going to cost. I do NOT want to be contacted by one of their salemen, or go to one of their dinner parties!

I simply used my manual grater to shred the cabbage, carrots and apples for my cole slaw. I am not getting this cookware. I couldn't afford it in the first place.

My aunt and uncle had a home party for something very similar sounding back in the '70s. It cost an arm and a leg back then too. The thing that gets me about companies like that is that they prey on regular middle-class people, and the salespeople are almost hypnotic in their approach. They convince a lot of people that they absolutely have to have their product, no matter the cost. I sold Tupperware for a while (mostly to get my own Tupperware at a good price, and to make a little extra money) but was not pushy with it. I believed in the product and I showed its good points, but I did not go over the top like some of the others did. I want people to deal honestly with me, and that is how I deal with them.

So, you'd rather be lied to and buy stuff blissfully ignorant of its value??

I can always tell when those salesmen are lying. *

I'm not naive enough to believe everyone always tells me the truth, but yes I do want to be dealt with honestly. I am also not cynical enough to believe that everyone is lying to me. There are honest people in the world, believe it or not. I am one of them, and I try to give my business to other honest people.

P.S. When purchasing something of value, I always have James with me. He can talk them into bringing the price down and throwing in lots of freebies pretty much every time. We don't like to get cheated any more than anyone else.

Smile I have one

I have never used it and don't see myself ever, in all honesty using it. I see they sell on eBay. Maybe I'll list it there. We had a guy come out and demo it and couldn't believe how much it cost. I got it at a garage sale from a lady who also never used it.

If someone needs a $3,000 cooking slicer maching, I recommend her/him spending half of that on therapy sessions and with the other half getting a round trip to France or Belgium and buying a very nice mandoline for about 100 bucks.

Seems like I would be better of buying the attachment for my Kitchenaid!
