Fashionable Kid Girl Letter Print T Shirt Review
Booklover1: This is a super product. I found if I push once and then it complete the spin, open it up and redistribute the contents, and then spin it again, it works super. Thanks.
book-lover: Not all salad spinners are created alike, but this is up there with the best. I love it! Going to be buying several more for gifts.I've had this for about 6 months now. Its sturdy, well constructed, spins easily, spinner handle contracts nicely into spinner bowl for storage, spinns water off letuce and greens nicely and has a small rubber banded area on botton to keep in place on counter while spinning. Well thought out design.
booksy: This is a fairly sturdy, seemingly well-designed piece of kitchen equipment that is supposed to dry your salad greens by spinning them in a colander. You press down on a pump at the top of the lid to get the colander spinning, then you can either wait for the colander to stop, or you can use a brake button to halt the action. I will break this down into the pros and cons that I have found:Pros:It is sturdy. It has grips on the bottom and pretty much stays in place even if you let go of it.The lettuce can be put in the colander, then water poured into the bowl to wash it, then the colander can be removed to drain it, saving the need for an extra washing bowl.It is fairly easy to get a good, fast(ish) spin going. Tip: make short, fast pumping motions.Cons:In order to get the fast spin, you must pump for at least a minute, maybe more. My arms got very tired after cleaning two heads of romaine lettuce.There doesn't seem to be a need for the brake. I just lifted the lid off when I wanted to stop it. Why add unnecessary functions?The lid comes apart for cleaning, but I found it extremely hard to get it apart. It's definitely made for someone with huge, strong hands.And the big topper of them all: it doesn't dry the lettuce. I thought that's what a salad spinner was supposed to do. At first I thought I was doing something wrong, so I tried different things. I put less lettuce in the colander. I broke the lettuce in half to make smaller pieces. I lightly wrung out the lettuce before putting it in the colander. I pumped, let it stop, pumped again, let it stop, pumped again. No matter what, I still ended up with damp lettuce that I needed to pat dry with paper towels. So what is the point of this contraption? If I just wanted to wash the lettuce I could have used a bowl that I already have instead of paying a lot for this thing. I wanted to give it one star, but because it is fairly sturdy and I can at least use the bowl and colander again, I'm giving it two. Can't anybody make a decent salad drier?
Bryan Campbell: We love salad and have been using our OXO salad spinner for over 4 years. In that time it has stood up to the abuse of having the plunger pushed as fast as humanly possible by both the kids and Dad. We have dropped the bowl several times and the various nicks and scratches have not been fatal to overall performance.It does its job well. We love buying a fresh head of romaine to cut up and spin for our salad. It seems so much more economical and tasty than the pre-packaged lettuce.We also find that the strainer acts as a handy colander in a pinch.
BSki: I used to wash by hand then swing the greens in a towel to dry them.This is nice to be able to remove the liner, wash the greens in the liner, then place it in the spinner to spin them dry.
