I love my salad spinner & use it pretty much daily. It's great for washing & drying lettuce greens...also, spinach, arugula, & fresh herbs.
When I find myself in a kitchen without one, I curse the days of having to wash lettuce in a colander & letting it drip dry. Who has time for that?
These spinners, by Xyliss, are my favorites. They have a flat lid, which makes them stack-able & saves on precious cabinet space. I have both sizes. The large one is great for lettuce & the small one, I use for herbs.
