As a vegetarian who loves to share delicious yet healthy creations at dinner parties, it’s often difficult to create that perfect, scrumptious salad. Though it’s easy to just toss together a few greens, sprinkle a bit of vinegar and pepper on top, and call it a salad, it definitely won’t have the pizzazz and umph that you would like your green creations to have. Part of that dedication in creating the perfect salad is making sure you have an efficient, dependable salad spinner that can remove water from your greens so that any dressing you put is completely absorbed by those hearty vegetables, and provides a taste that is sure to have people talking about for weeks!
Trust me when I say I’ve tried everything in removing all the excess water from my green leaves: hand tossing them, using a good ol’ fashioned crank-spinner, and even a clothes-dryer (although that last one may have just been something I did out of pure desperation and boredom). But none of them truly compare to the ease, dependability, and pure efficiency that the “OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner” provides and truly helped in making my salads water-free and delicious. What was so great about the OXO Salad Spinner was that there was no crank involved, only a durable pump that required very little hand strength. So much so that my friend’s younger sibling of only 3 years old was able to push down and have the salad spinning in no time!
But the ease of getting the spinner to work wasn’t the only blessing. Many times after having tried to get my lettuce to be as crispy as possible, there would always be water left over keeping everything soggy. Luckily the OXO Salad Spinner spun everything in one direction at probably the fastest speed I’ve ever seen a spinner do. And yes, my lettuce always comes out as crispy and dry as possible, ready to soak in my homemade, secret dressing each and every single time!
After a busy dinner, however, the one thing we all loath is washing the dishes and any other kitchen appliances that were used, and salad spinners always been the most burdensome for me. Most of the spinners I’ve used rarely come apart, preventing me from cleaning out all the hard to reach places. But the OXO Spinner, with its clear container, easily breaks apart for thorough washing. Breaking it apart takes seconds and after putting it inside the dishwasher, I rarely have to think about it until its all sparkly clean and ready to be used again.
Needless to say, this has been one of my favorite gifts to have gotten and definitely the best salad spinner that I have ever used!
