J.L.: I've held off on buying this for a long time because I had a hard time parting with $30 for a plastic bowl. I'm so glad I purchased it finally. As you would expect from OXO, it's very well made. OXO always has the best products--definitely the best value. The top handle makes the bowl spin fast so the lettuce dries in no time. It even has a little break to stop the bowl from spinning. The large bowl is the perfect size for a bag of lettuce.
J. Manly "healthychoices": OXO has a smaller version to consider before you buy this unit. If your household is small, or the salad you make is less than a full head of lettuce, the smaller version is worth considering.This larger version takes up more storage space, not only in the cupboard but also in the dish drainer. That's a consideration when you realize that you need to wash the bowl and colander between uses, and that the inner mechanism on the underside of the cover also needs a chance to dry! I prefer to clean up in the kitchen as I do meal prep, and to let utensils air dry. The larger version made it enough more difficult because of its space requirements that I broke down and bought the smaller one recently.Bottom line: Look at both--and think--before you buy.
jmz "jzarate12": I'm so glad I finally bought a salad spinner, and I have no complaints about OXO's salad spinner. I use it for small herbs and lettuce as well as a temporary strainer (the inside part only, of course). There's a rubber brake on the top to stop the spinning almost instantly. If you cook with a lot of herbs or make a lot of salads, this item is extremely valuable to your kitchen collection.
J N. Brabec: I owned a more expensive salad spinner that gave out after a decade or so. I wasn't familiar with OXO when I purchased that old spinner.By the time it gave up the ghost, I had come to know OXO's products for being well designed and durable. In October 2007 I ordered my first OXO Salad Spinner.It was used almost daily for five and a half years with no big problem. My only negative is that cleaning the lid is difficult.Some strength is needed to press the tabs to separate the lid's two pieces. The tabs on mine become brittle and one snapped off somewhere around 2010, but the spinner still did what it was supposed to do. The broken tab made it more difficult to separate the pieces, but not impossible.The reason I'm ordering a replacement is that the large bowl has become too ugly to use for serving anyone except immediate family. Repeated use, hard water and the dishwasher have clouded and pitted the bowl. Even fresh out of the dishwasher, it doesn't look clean.I'm all for function first, but form still counts and the old one was looking too gnarly. I am using the pending annual influx of summer house-guests as my reason for replacing my first OXO Salad Spinner. The price is the same I paid in 2007. At about a penny per use, I can't complain; I didn't expect it to last a lifetime.When I consider the price, above average performance and multipurpose functionality, I highly recommend the OXO Salad Spinner.
J. Nowicki "The Boss and Mrs. B.": We had crisp rust-free lettuce even after,lettuce count them . . . 14 days in the fridge!The Oxo Good Grips Green Salad Spinner works.Our refrigerator is quite large so its size was no problem,just be aware it will take up substantial space in your fridge.The salad spinner keeps it green and keeps it fresh.~ The Boss and Mrs. B ~
