Good Product: Fit and Fresh Salad Shaker

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

I’ll be the first to admit that the name kind of makes me wince. It brings to mind McDonald’s ill-fated attempt to lighten up their menu in the early 90’s with the McSalad Shaker. And yet, when I saw the Fit and Fresh Salad Shaker while browsing Bed, Bath, and Beyond several weeks ago, I was struck by how clever it was.

Basically it’s a plastic storage container designed for lunchtime salads. The container can hold four cups of salad while the lid has a built-in ice pack, a compartment for untensils, and a small well that holds four tablespoons of dressing. When it’s time to eat, you simply turn the knob, dispensing the dressing into the salad and give it a shake to toss and coat.

You don’t have to worry about multiple containers getting separated and lost in your company’s kitchenette refrigerator and you don’t need to bring a separate bottle of salad dressing. Everything is right there in one place.

You can find the Fit and Fresh Salad Shaker at ($7.99), and ($6.99)
