I was very disappointed with this item. It is made of very cheap, flexible plastic and obviously will not hold up to the usage for which it is intended. We almost burned up the motor the first time we used it. We thought we were getting a salad shooter. Our bad, the package says salad shaper. Not worth the postage to send it.
Very poor quality, cutting blades might cut warm butter but not comparable to a salad shooter by Presto. Motor sounds like its going to burn up grating room temp. cheese.

Big regrets on purchase. Quality was cheap and kept falling apart. Love overstock, but this product was horrible. I wouldnt recommend it to anyone!

This is a useless product. I have friends who use salad shooters and love them. I thought this was the same thing. It is not. The thing will not even cut or shred cabbage. The carrots stuck in it. I am very upset. Am not sure if I can return it. Very bad product. Oh and it falls apart while using or attempting to use.
The piece you put the food in for grating falls off without even being touched. It will not stay in place to grate the food and this is not real salad shooter like they list it as. It is an "As seen on TV" piece of garbage called a "Salad Shaper." DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!!!!!
I bought this to replace one I had that I used for years and finally wore it out. Love the ease of using it.

I had a Presto Salad Shooter when they were first out. Loved it, but like a lot of small appliances, if you don't use them, they seem to burn out after a extended period of non-use. When I saw this "Salad Shooter" in my favorite color RED, I ordered immediately. I normally read reviews and know what I'm ordering, but I missed the fact that this isn't made by Presto at all. Everything about it--the box, the manual, even the appliance itself--is copied directly from the Presto model. Now that it's suspect, I've read the reviews--this one loves it/that one hates it. If it turns out as reliable and handy as my original Salad Shooter, great. But, buyers should be aware that they're NOT buying a Salad Shooter, but the "Salad Shaper" made by somebody else.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Haven't used it yet
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Advertised as Salad Shooter--it's a knockoff
This is a replacement for one that wore out after many salads. I expect this one to perform as easily and equally as well as I create pretty and nutritious food for my family. The ease in operation and clean up makes this kitchen appliance more useful that others tucked away in the cupboards!
I previously owned a similar product so this was easy to assemble and begin using. It shredded several pounds of cheese in minutes! I would say the only thing I did not like is that it wes VERY noisy! It works great and is easy to cleanl
This "as seen on TV" salad shooter is in no way comparable to the original Presto Salad Shooter. The motor is inefficient and the blades on the cutter attachments are no way close to being sharp. I have tried it on ham and cheese with very messy and lumpy results.... This is the first item I've purchases from Overstock.com that I have not been thoroughly pleased with.
good thing is colour. not as good as original. Purchased this in GBP and thought it would be rated for our electrical system. Nothing to say what voltage was so had to go to the extra expense of buying a power converter. m ore technical details should have been stated.
I do like the salad shooter. Basically I only use it to grate cheese. Much easier. I used to have a PRESTO Salad shooter. Its quality is much better than the one I got. But this red one is adequate. Does the job. just doesn't feel as substantial as the Presto. I like the red color too. Overall I am satisfied.
This item is nothing like the old one. I had the old salad shooter professional which was larger and used it all the time until it finally wore out. I noticed this one was smaller but thought it would still work for salads. It wouldn't even slice up a carrot! It just ground and ground and some carrot mash came out of the spout. I would have returned it but already threw away the box. It is worthless. I do not recommend it.
