Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

Saladmaster is a proud sponsor of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a nonprofit organization that promotes preventive medicine, conducts clinical research and encourages high research standards.


Like Saladmaster, the Physicians Committee shares the philosophy of teaching people how to prepare healthy, delicious meals through cooking classes and demonstrations. The Physicians Committee Food for Life is an award-winning nutrition and cooking education program that began in 2001 with cooking classes for cancer prevention and survival and has now expanded to offer eight types of curricula, including topics on healthy weight management, diabetes prevention, kid's health, employee wellness, and healthy eating on a budget. Today, Saladmaster provides stainless steel cookware used in these cooking class demonstrations, which have proven to be an effective way of teaching people easy, practical ways to fight diet-related diseases with the power of nutrition.

Saladmaster GK777 Village Project

There is no better reflection of Saladmaster’s tagline, We Change Life, than the collective efforts of our team members with the GK777 initiative. GK777 stands for “Gawad Kalinga” – translated it means “to give care.” This care is delivered in the form of new homes for the homeless and food for the hungry in communities throughout the Philippines. And it’s not just about money donated. GK777 is about restoring dignity to people who have lost hope. It’s about building a local community, and in turn, building a community that crosses borders.

Saladmaster’s involvement started in 2006 when two senior Saladmaster Dealers decided to donate funds to build 10 homes through GK777. Saladmaster saw firsthand the positive effects of this life-changing initiative and named GK777 as its beneficiary. By committing a portion of each sale to the project, participating Saladmaster Dealers and Consultants have since raised enough funds to build more than 75 homes to date.

Our History

We’re much more than salad – which is why people often ask about the Saladmaster name. Knowing a little history helps. It not only explains our name, but also the vision that propelled us to where we are today.

In 1946, the Saladmaster brand began in the home of Mr. Harry Lemmons. He didn’t have much cash, but Mr. Lemmons did have a vision for introducing the world to a unique product he believed would change the way busy families prepared healthy meals. It was called the Saladmaster, and it offered a new, time-saving technique for slicing fruits and vegetables for salads. That product, of course, became internationally known and the namesake for a business that transformed the way the world cooks.

During that first year, Mr. Lemmons’ sales force grew from just three people to more than 100. It seemed Americans were hungry for what the young entrepreneur had envisioned. And as the product line expanded over the years, the Saladmaster sales team continued to grow in numbers and enthusiasm. Individuals discovered they could make a living by making a difference in the lives of customers across the country. The growing company became more like a family, and the support it provided opened doors to all kinds of financial success.

When stainless steel cookware was introduced in 1952, Saladmaster developed a series so durable and strong, nothing on the market compared – which was exactly what customers were asking for. We’ve continued to strengthen our product over the years, and even so, some of our earliest cookware is still being used today in the kitchens of second- and third-generation families.

In 1979, Regal Ware, Inc., recognized Saladmaster as an industry star. The veteran cookware manufacturer also closely identified with Saladmaster’s customer-first philosophy. Both companies were directly connected to the lives of the people who purchased their products, and as a result, created business models that put customers’ needs and interests at the forefront. With this shared focus and a vision for impacting even more lives with better cooking experiences – Regal Ware purchased Saladmaster.

With our customers at the heart of our story, we continue investing in research and technology that will support the kitchenware of the future. And as always, the Saladmaster sales team remains our driving force. Each and every member is fueled by invaluable training and support, and all the opportunities that come with working for a premium brand. As a team – as a family – we remain committed to making life better for generations of food aficionados.

Seven Decades of Making Life Better.

We’re about much more than just salad – which is why people often ask about the Saladmaster name. Knowing a little history helps. It not only explains our name, but also the vision that propelled us to where we are today. Mr. Harry Lemmons is the man who started it all. Decades ago, Mr. Lemmons had a solution for providing busy families with an easier, healthier way to cook delicious meals. It was called "The Saladmaster," and it offered time-saving techniques for slicing fresh fruits and vegetables, and for preparing more nutritious meals. The Saladmaster, of course, became internationally known and the namesake for a business that continues to transform the way the world cooks. Read More
