I have always wondered why salads taste better at restaurants! Well, the secret is just not in tossing the right ingredients with its dressing, but in maintaining it’s crispness as well. I recently found that the key to a good salad is by hand washing the vegetables in cold water, cutting them up, and finally spinning them in a salad spinner before adding the dressing. The spinning step removes the excess water which results in crispier lettuce and greens. And, most of us tend to skip this and end up with a soggy salad! I’m so glad to add this product to my kitchen and look forward to using it in a regular basis.
Ozeri’s salad spinner comes in a good size, and will fit in enough salad for a family of four. It comes nicely packaged and with instructions on how to use the product. I’m hoping the handle will last a long time especially because it is made of plastic and that’s what I will be pressing to get the spinning going. The plastic bowl feels sturdy and is safe because it is BPA free. Everything in here is easy to clean and is dishwasher safe too. I wish the spinner spinned a bit faster and removed more water. Still, a good product that is going to help me make restaurant-style home made salads! Here’s a short video of this spinner in action –
