Description

The SwiftDry Salad spinner uses the same plastic bowl and unusually shaped spin basket as its pull-cord model. But this version has a lid with a lever that pops up. Pushing the lever down will activate the spinning motion through a series of gears that you can actually see through the translucent green plastic housing if you look underneath the lid.

The four most common types of salad spinners are pump spinners, pull-string spinners, knob-style spinners, and hand-crank (or simply “handle”) spinners. Sommerall says pump-operated spinners are generally the easiest to use, although pull-string spinners are also relatively simple to operate. This spinner uses a pull-type handle to enact spinning, so it requires more attention during use to make sure the spinning is at optimum level. The spinner is dishwasher safe, making cleaning a breeze. Westmark German Vegetable and Salad Spinner: Inexpensive materials, a hand crank, and a slow-spinning speed landed this salad spinner towards the bottom of our results.The Williams Sonoma Salad Spinner will supply any chef with clean and crispy lettuce with each use. In addition to being a high quality and durable product, this salad spinner also provides a sleek look that would complement a modern kitchen. Small kitchen owners, this one's for you. The Prepworks Collapsible salad spinner is designed to flatten down to half its size (only three inches) while not compromising capacity or performance. A wide band of flexible, silicone-like plastic spans the middle of the bowl as well as the colander insert, folding on itself for storage. Sometimes you only need a petite spinner that stores compactly but has the oomph of larger models. The Oxo Good Grips Little Salad and Herb Spinner is just right for small portions of lettuce, berries, and especially bunches of fresh herbswith its 2.5-quart basket. We found that it easily accommodated two heads of radicchio for one test, two bunches of cilantro for another, and one pint of blueberries for a third.

Afterwards, you can use the dry parts of the towel to pat any excess water drops off the greens. In our testing, the amount of water remaining in the greens was a little more than the most effective salad spinners on this list, but it performed just as well as some of the others. And because big droplets were patted away at the end, the greens seemed dry enough.

Kristy Mucci, author of Salad Party, also likes its versatility: "I like the strong grip of the non-slip base, and it's good for more than just salad spinning. I dress my salads in it, and I reach for it whenever I need an extra prep bowl or a lidded container for refrigerator storage. I also think it's nicer looking than any plastic salad spinner, plus it'll stay nicer looking longer because stainless steel doesn't get sad with age the way plastic does."

A salad spinner is a kitchen tool used to wash and dry salad greens. The spinning motion removes excess water, making for crisp, fresh greens. There are a variety of salad spinners available on Kitchenware Australia & New Zealand, each with their own unique features. The spin basket had an unusual pattern of cutouts; some are horizontal while others are angled upwards and downwards, which might account for how thoroughly the water was able to pull away from the greens.The spinning action works with a pump mechanism, and the pump handle has a comfortably rounded shape made of grippy plastic. It feels great in the hand and doesn't require much effort to operate, for lefties and righties alike. Two sturdy clamps keep the lid in place for storage and while you're pouring water out. The spinning action is initiated by a knob that you turn, which is comfortable to hold and can be turned in either direction — nice for lefties. Large salad spinners are great for meal prepping, preparing large salads for a family or dinner party, or even using as a container to store washed greens in your refrigerator,” he says. “If you’re only occasionally washing greens or frequently washing greens for one or two people, a smaller salad spinner is a great option and is also much easier to store.” Given that most salad spinners are made out of various types of plastic, I’d recommend always using soapy warm water and a sponge to clean your spinner regardless of whether or not they’re marketed as dishwasher safe,” he suggests. “If small leaves or debris do become lodged, I recommend using a skewer, cake tester, or soft brush to clear each hole.”Drying Test Three: If the salad spinner is able to successfully dry seven-and-a-half ounces of mixed greens, dry 10 ounces of mixed greens, to further test its ability to handle a large amount of lettuce. Weigh the greens (in grams) prior to washing, after washing, and after drying. Time how long each spinner takes to dry the greens. You're not limited to spinning with this model. After using the colander to rinse an entire box of tagliatelle, we segued it to the table in the brushed stainless steel bowl for family dinner. We also used it to mix pancake batter and lauded its versatility for more than salad spinning. Our one negative comment was after following the manufacturer’s instructions to wash it in the dishwasher, we found water spots all over the stainless steel bowl that took some vigorous rubbing with a clean, dry hand towel to remove. As such, we recommend not washing the bowl in the dishwasher to preserve its beauty and longevity. The Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner is our choice for the best salad spinner because of its efficiency, design, and ease of care. We also love that the bowl can double as a serving bowl, and the salad spinner is available at a fairly affordable price point.

For this piece, she tested each salad spinner side by side.

It depends on what you are using it for and your household size. More compact ones, which average around three quarts, are good for herbs and berries. Larger sizes, such as five quarts, are sufficient for larger households and big quantities of greens. If you process a lot more, consider getting a more commercial type used at farms. We couldn't resist adding this fun and unique twist on a salad greens dryer to our list, even though it's not technically a salad spinner. The Salad Sling is a double-layered piece of bright green terry cloth fabric (made of polyester, nylon, and polyurethane). It's shaped in a large square, with elongated corners. The Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner is our top choice because of its large capacity, patented brake, and easy-to-use patented plunger. Equally as impressive is the Oxo Good Grips Little Salad & Herb Spinner, which comes in handy for smaller produce items. How We Tested Farberware Pump Spinner: This salad spinner performed solidly throughout testing. The pump mechanism was powerful and it dried lettuce well. However, it was hand-wash only and felt cheap. A salad spinner is not a necessity, but it does make meal prep a lot easier—and not just for greens. You can wash and dry a multitude of lettuces and other greens, like kale or collards, but you can also efficiently wash and dry fresh herbs, berries, and bulky vegetables, like broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, potatoes. You can even wash and dry your hand-wash-only laundry. It's an efficient way to complete the task, but you may want a separate spinner.One of our editors, Brandi Fuller, has tested this salad spinner in her own kitchen and highly recommends it. “I loved this salad spinner,” she says. “It made the texture of my salads so much more enjoyable, and it was incredibly easy (and honestly fun) to use. I recommend it to anyone who’s looking for an affordable and easy to use option.” Functions: Most salad spinners will simply dry leaves but there are ones with other functions like graters or choppers. Additionally, the outer bowl can be used for serving so look for one that also looks aesthetically pleasing. The bowl of OXO's Steel Salad Spinner is just beautiful: Crafted of brushed stainless steel, it has a beautifully rounded shape and a grippy underside. We'd buy it on its own as a serving bowl…vthe fact that it comes as part of a salad spinner is just a bonus. Oxo has a well-deserved reputation for making high-quality, user-friendly kitchen tools of all stripes, and their line of salad spinners proves to be no exception. In addition to the easy-yet-powerful push mechanism that is universal to Oxo's salad spinners, in this model, we especially like the added durability of the stainless steel bowl (as opposed to the plastic or glass options). The sturdy bowl is both attractive and practical since there's no risk of it breaking or absorbing any aromas or flavors like a plastic can. It's also easier to clean, and you can sanitize the stainless steel part if you need to pop it into the dishwasher. Like its sister product, the spinning is initiated by pushing the pump, and in this model, the brake works even better, immediately freezing the basket's motion. We liked that the pump handle is comfortable and grippy, that it can be used with the right or left hand, and that the whole thing is relatively lightweight.
