Contrast Top And Shorts Athleisure Set For Toddlers And Kids Review
trebe: Simply put, the Oxo salad spinner receives such stellar reviews because it is an extremely well designed product, that operates on a simple principle, and works fantastically well. Given a choice, almost everyone would prefer fresh, clean vegetables and fruit. However, washing them usually leaves you with the problem of excess water, and that is where the Oxo comes in.The spinner has three components, the bowl, the basket, and the lid. Put your vegetables, fruit, or whatever you want to drain off excess liquids from, in the basket. Place the basket in the bowl, resting on the center pin at the bottom of the bowl. Release the spring loaded handle, and then while holding down the lid, push down on the handle a few times. The centrifugal force generated from spinning the contents in the basket, draws liquid and small debris to the outer walls of the bowl. What remains in the basket is relatively dry, and excess water and debris can be discarded.The bowl is made of extra hard plastic, that is shaped so that it is difficult to tip over, even when the basket is spinning at high speed. The rubber on the bottom of the bowl provides traction, and helps keep the bowl from spinning, or tipping over, while you are pumping. There is very little friction between the spinning basket, and the bowl and lid, and it is quite remarkable how long the basket will keep spinning if you just let it spin. There is a button on the top of the lid that acts as a brake, and will slow and stop the basket. To maintain a minimum profile, there is a sliding lever that locks down the spring loaded handle into the lid. Although holding the lid down is recommended, even when spinning at high speed, the lid seems to stay in place pretty securely. It is kind of hard to see the mechanism inside the lid, but hopefully any metal parts are corrosion resistant, as these would probably be the only things that might normally fail.The Oxo spinner is a little pricey, and takes up some space, but with a near perfect design, it is highly recommended if you enjoy serving a terrific salad. It appears to be made of high quality materials, that should provide excellent results for a very long time, and is available in a variety of colors and sizes. If you get one, the odds are very high that you will love it. Bon appetite!
Trouble2: I eat a lot of salad so this is used a lot. The pump and break are a must if you plan to use one a lot. We have a hand crank one at work and it gets stuck all the time. Well worth the extra money.
TXdust "Gabe": This is my first salad spinner so take this review as such. I really don't have any previous models to base it on. So I will post the benefits and problems I have noticed but can not gauge for you if another is a better buy.First off is the size of the salad spinner. It is pretty big so make sure you have a place to store it because it will take up a lot of room. I wouldn't trust storing anything inside the spinner because the basket is plastic and I would think it would become warped and than useless. As long as you have the storage room the size is great. I have used it for drying off salad greens, and drying off fresh cut potato fries, potato pancakes and homemade chips so I have challenged its capacity and it works great. The next part is the button lock. There is a lock for the button to help protect the button and keep it out of your way when storing. That lock works great and is easy to operate. I have no complaints on the lock so we must move on to the button itself. The spin action is achieved by pressing the big green button down a few times in a fast up and down motion. It reaches a top speed and seems to only be able to go so fast before you start interrupting its momentum when pressing it beyond that point. Once the spinner is going there seems to be some movement of the whole unit on my all wood counter. It is nothing extreme but I call for caution when using on a slick surface because while on wood it likes to nudge around like a top ever so slightly. I could see it sliding right off a marble top counter without a towel underneath it. The next function is the break to stop the spinner. And when I say stop I mean slow down slowly. The break does not impress me that much. I under stand you wouldn't want an instant stop so you can protect the items in the basket and the basket itself, but I have just let it spin itself down because when preparing dinner. I do not want to wait 20 seconds holding a button down when the spinner would only take 40 seconds to stop on its own. The product works fine over all and the only part I truly worry about breaking is the basket. I am going to baby that basket because like I mentioned before any warps could prove bad for the spinner. So far the item has worked like a champ and since december 17th 2012 I have used this product 13 times. The product has yet show signs of age but its only one month in Jan 12 2013 and I will update over time to report and damages that happen with regular use.
V. Piere "Zelda": After several years of looking at these and thinking do I really need one I can now say YES I really do. I was sure it was just one of those items that I would hardly use but I find different uses for it all the time. With the pumping mechanism as opposed to pulling a string this is much better you don't have the bowl skidding off on you. Not to mention it's so easy my husband actually can use it and although the man can operate a power tool really well ...kitchen gadgets are usually a whole different animal. I would definitely recommend this product.
V. Robinson "KaySerRa": LOVE this salad spinner. It sits out on the counter, as I use it so often. I got so tired of wasting money on the prepackaged salads, because it would go bad shortly after opening the package. So I buy bulk in all the salad greens, make enough salad to fill this container and then bag it myself. The salad lasts MUCH longer!! Absolutely no regrets in getting this easy salad spinner, large enough to fill a gallon size storage bag, easy to spin....just push down several times, and it gets rid of the moisture. Another plus is that it's easy to clean.
