Best Salad Spinner

Many people despise making salad simply because they end up too wet. There is absolutely no labor in washing lettuce. You just want to make sure that the lettuce dries perfectly. No one wants a soggy salad. Your answer to that is a good quality salad spinner. For these picks, a good salad spinner should be medium to large in size and very simple to use. It's just lettuce, nothing about it should be complex. So stop using up paper towels to dry your lettuce and invest in one of these awesome salad spinners.

OXO Stainless Steel Salad Spinner

This salad spinner is one of great function and design and the top pick. The OXO Stainless Steel Salad Spinner has an innovative pump and break function that allows maximum water extraction. The clear lid allows you to view the spinner while in use. The base is non-slip and is balanced and steady when using. Once your salad has been perfectly spun dry, you can remove the lid easily and detach it for cleaning. The attractive base bowl can double as a serving bowl. The interior basket capacity is just under 5 quarts and the actual bowl capacity is around 6 quarts. It is also safe for top rack placement in your dishwasher.

Zyliss Easy Spin Salad Spinner

The Easy Spin® Salad Spinner will rinse and clean your salad greens or veggies with just one rapid spin. It is crafted with an easy-pull retractable chord and proprietary glidewheel motion that creates a rapid and smooth process that spins the moisture out of your lettuce. It has a no slip base that keeps it stable as speeds reach up to 1800 rpm during use. Never worry about soggy salads again. The flat top lid makes it easy to store in the refrigerator or in the cabinet. The entire unit is dishwasher safe.

Salad Spinner

I like this spinner. It's not as fancy as the OXO, but definitely looks good enough to serve from. It is easy to use and the drainer basket inside can double as a colander for draining other things. The clear plastic bowel is durable and of generous proportions. The lid has a ratchet design latch that when turned spins the lettuce fast. You will be very pleased with the look and performance of this well made salad spinner. The bowl can be washed in a dishwasher and for the lid, hand washing is recommend.

Progressive International Collapsible Salad Spinner

This one made my picks because I was excited about the storage possibilities with this one. The Progressive Collapsible Salad Spinner can be used to serve your salad as well as spin until the water is fully extracted. The dial in top top is used to spin the inner basket. Most importantly is how it breaks down for easy storage. This is a well made salad spinner that will not only keep your salad from being soggy, but also fits easily into storage and is completely dishwasher safe.

IKEA TOKIG Salad Spinner

This is the most basic salad spinner you can possibly buy. It made it onto this list because of its insanely low cost but superior function. The sturdy plastic design is nothing fancy but it does an awesome job spinning your salad greens dry. The lid has a nob on top and the clear bottom bowl has a basket inside. You simply place the lid and washed greens in the bowl, place the lid on and turn as fast as you can. This salad spinner can take a hit and keep on working. It is a well constructed salad spinner that will last for years. Hand washing is recommended.
