Your salads have been languishing in the dark ages. By this point, you’ve rough-chopped enough greens to go blue in the face -- and you’ve probably sliced your fingertips, too. But with the 60 Second Salad Maker, the end of your culinary woes is near.

This genius product is bafflingly simple: It’s essentially a salad strainer, but intersected by several long and slender slits. You just place your ingredients in the bowl, screw the lid on, and chop everything up into a fine amalgam of salad matter. If it takes you more than a minute to do this, give yourself a long, hard stare-down in the mirror. You will never be the next Gordon Ramsay. 

The two bold minds behind this project, Craig Wenger and David Turover, launched a Kickstarter with the intention of raising $5,000 to bring the product to market. Instead, they’ve raised $190,275. There will soon be a generation of people making their salads in under 60 seconds. Just think of the possibilities. 

If you want this bad boy in your kitchen, all it costs is $14, and you can get the miracle mechanism mailed to you by May. If you pledge $26 to the campaign, they’ll mail you two 60 Second Salad Makers, so you can have some sort of speed-salad-making contest. 

So be swift, and be brave. The future of salad is in your hands. You know what to do.
