Salad Sling

salad slingJill Visit seeks a Shark to invest in Salad Sling, her alternative to the salad spinner, in Shark Tank episode 1218. Jill is an advertising and branding professional who, like many folks, likes salad. What she doesn’t like is salad spinners. They work great, but they’re cumbersome and hard to clean.  One day, she dumped her just washed lettuce greens onto a dish towel, wrapped them up and swirled them around. To her delight, the greens were dry.

That’s how the Salad Sling was born. A friend suggested she bring it to market and in 2017 she did. Now, the sling is a bit more than just a towel. She makes them from a super-absorbent microfiber with a waterproof liner to contain the moisture. The instructions are simple: place your washed greens in the center, grab the four corners and swing it around in a circle for 10-15 seconds. If the greens are still damp, flip the sling over and repeat.

She claims her way is must more fun than a salad spinner. At just $19.99 on Amazon, it’s cheaper than most salad spinners. It’s much easier to clean and store, too. Jill still works as a creative director at WorldStrides, an educational travel company and runs her own freelance design firm. She likely wants a Shark as a partner to help her manage her business.

Salad Sling Shark Tank Update

The Shark Tank Blog constantly provides updates and follow-ups about entrepreneurs who have appeared on the Shark Tank TV show. The first re-run of this episode in July, 2021, is just three months after the original air date, so not much new information is available.

Since airing, Jill added a “mini” model – a smaller version of the original. Salad Sling is still a side hustle of sorts for Jill; she is the Creative Director at Neutral, a digital marketing agency. As of August, 2023, the company is still in business with annual revenue of less than $1 million.

I ordered one of these and it works great! I’ll provide new information as it becomes available.
