OXO Stainless Steel Salad Spinner is a Winner
My family and I are big salad eaters and I wash a variety of fresh greens daily. I had lived with one of those flimsy plastic salad spinners for years, so I was very excited when I read a recent review of the OXO stainless spinner in a cooking magazine. The review was extremely reliable and I found the spinner to be every bit as good as promised--maybe even a bit better.
The stainless steel bowl is substantial and sturdy and includes a non-slip rubber base which keeps the bowl from sliding around on your counter. The overall design is both attractive and functional, and the spinning mechanism is very easy to operate. There is a convenient button which brings the spinning basket to a quick halt and a clever locking switch that keeps the spinning mechanism stable when not in use. The best part is that you can dress & serve the salad in the lovely stainless steel bowl--reducing dirty dishes (oh, yeah!). My only complaint is that the mesh basket is a bit flimsy considering the rather hefty $50.00 price tag (I wonder if replacement baskets are available?). Aside from this one small flaw, I would highly recommend this product!
I recommend this product.
