A California-based firm Chowbotics has come with a new machine named ‘Sally’ that makes 1,000 different salads and counts its calories for you. Sally can reportedly make a meal in just about 60 seconds.

“Sally occupies about the same amount of space as a dorm room refrigerator, and uses 21 different ingredients—including romaine, kale, seared chicken breast, Parmesan, California walnuts, cherry tomatoes, and Kalamata olives—to craft more than a thousand types of salad in about 60 seconds, while the customer watches the process,” Bloomberg reported.


“The machine weighs in at 350 pounds, making it more appropriate for industrial settings than for home kitchens at the moment,” the report added.

Users are simply required to place their bowls in the dispensing area and choose from the different options showcased to them on the display on the machine. The calorie count will be displayed on the bottom of the screen. Users can even select different toppings. Once you’re done, Sally will do the rest.

The best part is that Sally doesn’t require any assistance from human workers.

Sally’s first day of work will be sometime this spring at Mama Mia’s in Santa Clara, California.
