Saladmaster is a Texas-based manufacturer of cookware and other cooking equipment that is only sold through a network of authorized dealers and consultants, a model similar to other direct-sale brands like Tupperware or Mary Kay Cosmetics. Although now cookware is its most well-known product category, its first product, a crank-operated vegetable shredder and slicer called the Saladmaster Machine, is what gave the company its name when it was founded in 1946. A line of aluminum cookware was launched in 1950, with stainless steel cookware introduced 2 years later. Today, Saladmaster is one of the largest direct-sales food preparation brands.
Saladmaster products include a wide range of cooking equipment. Several lines of cookware are available by individual pieces or in sets of various configurations. There are also electric skillets and roasters, cutlery, kitchen tools and mixing bowls.
The Saladmaster Machine remains Saladmaster's flagship product. It is a crank-operated gadget that comes with a variety of cutting cones to shred and slice fruits, vegetables, cheese, meats and other foods.
Several details differentiate Saladmaster cookware from other products. The company's signature line has a stainless steel-titanium construction that the company believes offers the best resistance any metal byproducts caused by chemical reaction between the food and the cooking surface. Saladmaster cookware also has detachable handles and a specially designed lid with a valve that clicks to alert the cook that the pot's contents have reached the proper cooking temperature.
How to Buy:
Saladmaster products are only available through the company's network of consultants and dealers. The company's main selling tactic is inviting interested consumers to host a dinner party for up to 10 guests in their home; the Saladmaster consultants prepare the dinner, clean up afterwards and, ostensibly, encourage guests to order Saladmaster products. Consumers can also contact Saladmaster to find a nearby dealer.
