I was recently sent a great new kitchen gadget from Cave Tools called the Salad Spinner. Because we do so many salads in our home I was pretty excited to give a try.
The Salad Spinner holds 3 quarts of veggies or fruits at a time which allows you to wash and drain a huge amount. It is comprised of a basket (colander), a solid serving bowl that the basket nestles in and a hand crank on the salad lid that allows you to spin basket. I found the crank easy to use and I liked that the lid locked so I was sure nothing would go flying out! After a few vigorous cranks, my salad leaves were nice and dry and I was able to serve immediately unlike when I use a regular colander.
If you are a person who makes a lot of fresh salads or preps a lot of fresh fruit (and if you aren't than you should be!!), the Salad Spinner is a must for you! You can purchase the Salad Spinner using the following links....
