Description

The bowl of OXO's Steel Salad Spinner is just beautiful: Crafted of brushed stainless steel, it has a beautifully rounded shape and a grippy underside. We'd buy it on its own as a serving bowl…vthe fact that it comes as part of a salad spinner is just a bonus. For each test, we noted how operating the pump or knob felt and how much strength was required to start and continue spinning. After recording the responsiveness of each spinner and the level of stability the base provided, we saw how many pumps or spins it took to completely clean and dry the produce, noting any difficulty in stopping the spinner once it got going.

There are three types of salad spinners to choose from. The one you select will depend on individual preferences. Knob-style and hand-crank spinners, however, are a bit more difficult to operate as they require a lot of effort to spin the basket. “Knob spinners can be hard to use as they require lots of effort involving the fingers and wrist,” Sommerall says.

Manual Spinners: These may be in the form of a hand crank or a knob, but all manual spinners are going to require a little effort on your part. Most spinners on the lower end of the price range tend to be manual. The SwiftDry Salad spinner uses the same plastic bowl and unusually shaped spin basket as its pull-cord model. But this version has a lid with a lever that pops up. Pushing the lever down will activate the spinning motion through a series of gears that you can actually see through the translucent green plastic housing if you look underneath the lid. If you have limited space in your kitchen, the Dreamfarm Spina In-Sink Salad Spinner is the best salad spinner for you.

Whether you’re an at-home chef or running a restaurant or catering business, having a salad spinner at your disposal can make a world of difference in the quality of salad you make. Westmark German Vegetable and Salad Spinner: Inexpensive materials, a hand crank, and a slow-spinning speed landed this salad spinner towards the bottom of our results. Being easy to clean is key for any kitchen gadget to actually get used more than once," says McFall. Fortunately, all of the models we included are straightforward to care for: just wash them with hot, soapy water and let them dry completely between uses. All of these models are also dishwasher safe, but be aware that plastic is prone to warping or discoloration when dried with heat in the dishwasher. "Though the manufacturer may say that a salad spinner is dishwasher safe, hand wash your spinner," says Chandler. "Even the sturdiest of plastic spinners can warp in the dishwasher. I think the reason mine has lasted so long is that I always hand wash it." John Sommerall, who is a professional chef and the editorial project manager, food-research and testing for Dotdash Meredith, says when it comes to shopping for a salad spinner, people need to consider size, design, ease of use and cleaning, and the spinner’s value.Pump-Operated Spinners: To activate the spinning function on pump-operated spinners, you simply push down on a button or lever. The more you pump, the faster it spins. These are relatively easy to use and don't require quite as much effort as a manual/crank spinner. Coming in a close second, this Farberware pump spinner is another great option. Its capacity is ever-so-slightly larger than the Oxo model (6.6 quarts) and its spinning mechanism takes up a bit less space inside the basin when the lid is on, which creates more room for greens. It’s got a comfortable, easy-to-use-with-one-hand pump, and a rubber ring around the base that keeps it stable as it spins. And for what it’s worth, you get more spin for your pump than with the Oxo — a single pump keeps the device going almost twice as long. And most importantly, the greens come out dry. What we didn’t like about the Farberware Pump-Activated Salad Spinner When considering a spinner’s size, Sommerall says it’s important to factor in the amount of greens that will be washed on a regular basis in addition to how often the spinner will be used in general.
