Spin your salad dry with this inventive plastic salad spinner. Fill the basket with rinsed fresh greens or berries, close the lid and press the nonslip knob to start the basket spinning.
A push-button brake stops the motion so you can remove the dried contents. The knob locks down for storage, and both basket and bowl can be used separately. The clear lid can be easily disassembled for easy cleaning.

OXO began with a simple question. Why do ordinary kitchen tools hurt your hands? OXO set out to create a line of kitchen tools that would be comfortable to hold and easy to use. Today OXO offers more than 500 ergonomic products with pressure-absorbing, comfort-grip handles.
I have bought and used at least 6 other brands of salad spinners, and this is the best I have found! The spinner easily reaches an adequate speed (a problem with other brands) and is easy to use and clean. My favorite feature is that the lid comes apart so you can clean it in the dishwasher along with the bowl and basket! I highly recommend this Salad Spinner
I bought this spinner thinking that is must be the best on the market and I was very disappointed. It is easy to use and clean, however, it does not dry the leaves of lettuce very well. I used it for the first time, and pressed down many times to spin it and when it was done and I opened the top, the lettuce still had water on it. So, I dumped the water the went into the basin and spun again. And Again, all the lettuce was not dried. I actually had to dump my partially dried lettuce onto a clean wash towel to get the lettuce dried all the way.
The second time I used it, I ended up having to spin and stop, spin and stop - over and over again to get the lettuce dried enough. So, I was disappointed with this product because of that. My old spinner had to spin just once with a rotary handle on top and the lettuce was completely dried. It was cheaper than this product but much more effective.
The brake on my current OXO salad spinner finally gave out after heavy use, so I'm replacing it. I'm pretty happy with my current model, though the design is more bowl-like than this one. Perhaps the new design will contribute to improved performance.
I have a relatively new Zyless spinner that leaves my greens really wet. I have to lay them out on a towel and blot them after using the spinner multiple times. I am curious if this one really does dry out the greens. Also, does the pumping motion bother your hands

Best Answer:I watched a couple videos on this spinner. From what I can tell, your greens come out pretty dry, but a few people still opted to put them on paper towels when they were done. As far as pumping goes, I saw a video where one woman was letting her children do the spinning for her, so it appears to be pretty easy
How do you take top of spinner apart? We can't figure out.
A shopper on Dec 20, 2014
Best Answer:It stays intact. Slide the switch out to release spinner wheel. Depress and push in to lock. There shouldn't be much to clean in between the top and the wheel. If you like spray in between and let it air dry. I only put mine on the *top* level of the dishwasher, being careful there's no detritus between. Do not attempt to take the top apart.
