Sally the Salad Robot has up to 21 seasonal ingredients and is geared toward offices, cafeterias and other commercial spaces

Food robotics company Chowbotics has developed a machine that can make you a great salad in less than a minute. Sally the Salad Robot creates custom salads with up to 21 seasonal ingredients at any time of the day. It is intuitive, easy to use and replenished daily. To use the machine, you simply place a bowl under the dispenser, make your selections on the touchscreen interface, and watch as the canisters shift to drop in each ingredient one by one.

Executive Chef Charlie Ayers created Sally’s signature salads and oversees the ingredient selection. “Having spent my career in Silicon Valley, the intersection of food and technology has always fascinated and inspired me. I am proud to collaborate with the Chowbotics team to bring robotics to food service,” he said in a press release.

 

Sally’s target locations include cafeterias, restaurants, hotels and other commercial venues. One of the first locations to pilot Sally was the tech-centric shared workspace Galvanize.

Sally’s canister system keeps ingredients fresh and sanitary. It provides precise calorie counts to let you build salads that suit your nutritional needs and it has a small footprint, measuring just 31.7 by 33.2 inches. Sally can customize over 1,000 salads and it also lets you choose from a selection of preset menu items.
