A new spin on our classic design Before the introduction of the OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner in 1998, crank or pull-tab salad spinners were considered high-end products. Some people even used the spin cycle of their washing machine to dry lettuce. Our easy-to-use Spinner transformed the tool into an everyday kitchen essential. Nearly 20 years later, we revisited the Spinner to make some updates while keeping the top features and original inspiration: a children’s top. With a modern design that complements contemporary kitchens and an improved brake that stops on a dime every time, we think you’ll love our new spin on the classic design. Dry salad greens with a simple press of the soft, non-slip knob. The non-slip base keeps the bowl steady on the countertop, and the updated built-in brake button stops the Salad Spinner for unloading. The basket doubles as a colander, and the lid comes apart for easy cleaning.

A high quality salad spinner worth the extra cost. Fun and easy to use for anyone, even those with hand issues.
I looked at a lot of salad spinners and this was in the top of them all. I've never spent this amount of money on a salad spinner and the one I have now is a fairly cheap model.
This salad spinner is worth the price, hands down.
The outer bowl is a very thick plastic. I wash the lettuce in the green container, place it in the outer plastic bowl, place the top on and push down the top and it starts to spin very, very easily. Anyone with any type of hand or wrist issues could easily use this salad spinner. In fact, the pushing engages the patent pump system. It's so much fun to push down the pump that kids will beg to do it. You'll have to hide your salad spinner because they will look for any reason to push down the pump at the top. There is a little green button on top you can press down to slow down and stop the spin process.
The salad spinner pulls a LOT of water off my greens. It all stays in the bottom of the plastic bowl. Capacity is 4.49 quarts. It holds a lot of lettuce and they recommend storing the cut and washed lettuce in the salad spinner to keep it fresh longer. The top disassembles for easy cleaning and is top rack, dishwasher safe, but I usually hand wash mine. This salad spinner is BPA free.
We bought this for our summer cottage and I am driving it back to our house because it's such a nice salad spinner that I'm not leaving it back at the cottage. I'm also planning to buy it for people as gifts as it is very nice, high quality. I can see myself eating salad a lot more often just because of the ease and fun of using this salad spinner.

Simple to use!
It's super wide and operates simply with pushing down on the big green pump with your hand. It's not tiresome at all and there's a little stopper you press when you want it to stop spinning.
I don't use it for salads but I have found a great use for them- drying out my chickpeas! If you want some great roasted chickpeas, you have to make sure they're dry before you put them in the oven. I can rinse them in the same colander and cleanup is a breeze. Great buy and I've had great use out of this.

Looks to be slightly superior to its predecessor
By Dee Fields
This is my 3rd OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner. It looks like they discontinued their large salad spinner with the rounded bottom. It is just as well as both of them developed cracks on the bottom of the outside bowl and we use the spinner to soak whatever green leaves we are prepping, putting them through several soaks and rinses, and then we spin out all remaining water. Sometimes we are so surprised at how much dirt we cleaned off the leaves, this includes every once in a while those 3-in-a-package Romain lettuce hearts. We even do this with fresh herbs, but not all herbs do well soaked. They are rinsed and done. We never put the previous OXO spinners through the dishwasher and there is a scald protection on our kitchen faucet, so we never ran it through water that was too hot when we washed it by hand. So as you can imagine, we weren't happy campers when the second one broke, too.
I wanted to find a different vendor, but the capacity had to be the same if not better and I had other specific requirements about functionality. Turns out that this OXO one fit the bill even though I was nervous about the new model still failing like its predecessor has. We needed it to be just as big. It's capacity seems to be just a tad more probably due to the removal of the curved bottom. We are quite happy about that. I have only used this new model twice. The lettuce leaves came out fresh and dry and when I did it for curly parsley, it performed just as well. If the veggies stay wet, they will spoil fast. If they stay dry, they can last a week in the fridge. In general, I'm happy to have a spinner back and I am happy this one has a little more capacity without taking up any additional space. We're just crossing our fingers that the bottom of the bowl won't crack like the preceding model did.
Lastly, I'm loving the see through top and this perk I did not expect since all previous salad spinners we owned had an opaque top. You can spin to your heart's content, hit the break, and sort of eyeball how things are going with removing the water. I found with the curly parsley, after the first spin, I could still see water (this is normal, but I'd lift the lid on the older model to see the water). With the older model, I would move the greens around because centripetal force pegs them against the walls and put the cover on and spin again. Repeat as necessary. The clear top saves time. I actually spun it, saw the water through the lists sifted it back and forth a little to get the greens to fall into the center (don't turn upside down because the water will go back onto the greens) and then I spun it again. I like the fact that I didn't have to touch the greens again and saved time by not having to remove and reset the lid.
