Wash anything from lettuce to grapes with this Little Salad and Herb Spinner from OXO. This small lettuce spinner takes the basic salad spinner structure and adds several functions for easy use. A pumping knob at the top of the spinner makes it easier than ever to spin, while a brake button helps you stop spinning as soon as you're ready. A no-slip ring at the bottom of the bowl provides stability, and the pumping knob locks into the bowl for easy storage. When you're done, simply place this salad spinner in the dishwasher — you're sure to use it again soon.
I bought this as a gift for my Daughter in Law. She had one that she used all the time, but it finally broke. This smaller sized one was on her wish list for Christmas. The pop up spinner handle is great and the movement of the spinner is very smooth and consistent. It's a wonderful addition to any kitchen!
Bought off of a registry for a friend. Looks nice but is definitely a 1-2 person capacity - smaller than was expected for the price considering I bought a larger one for about the same or less. Just an FYI. Can't speak to its function though. Sorry!
I read previous reviews of this item, some say it didn't work well, I found that it does work, you just have to spin smaller amounts, which isn't a problem for me. I store my lettuce in the bowl and cover it and it keeps longer than my other lettuce keeper I have.
Beautiful, elegant design -- but it does not work. Pumping multiple times makes it spin longer but not faster, and it does not spin fast enough to dry lettuce. I tried twice and still soaked paper towels when I laid the lettuce out. Will look for my old fashioned kind where I can crank it up to top speed.
