Salad Spinners That Can Make Any Salad A Winner

If you’re trying to eat plenty of greens, there’s no better tool than a salad spinner to make short work of cleaning and drying them. But a well-designed model is a must. It should be roomy enough to let you prep large quantities in the fewest possible batches. It must remove water thoroughly so salad dressings can cling and sautés won’t splatter. Working the spinner should be reasonably easy and comfortable. And cleanup should be straightforward, with simple parts that don’t trap dishwater.

"Worth its weight in gold for the practical cook who wants to feel confident about putting good food on the table."

The newly updated model of our former favorite now has a much-improved brake and a rounder bowl shape. It worked easily—with just one hand—and was the most effective of our lineup at removing water from a variety of greens, with good clearance under the basket to collect runoff. Its lid is simple to pull apart (and click back together) for easy cleaning and drying, and it's dishwasher-safe. Our only quibble: A central stem protrudes from the lid into the middle of the basket by 2 inches, which slightly bruised baby spinach we'd heaped in, although the greens pressed against the outer walls as soon as we started spinning.

Cleanup / Durability

This compact version of our top-rated salad spinner is a great choice for smaller households or for when you don’t want to use the full-size version for smaller quantities of greens or herbs. Its basket holds about 2.4 quarts compared to nearly 5 quarts in the larger model, but it performed on par with the full-size version, effectively and easily cleaning produce and spinning it dry, removing nearly all the water from salad greens. Because the basket is positioned on a small spike, holding it well above the bottom of the bowl, we were able to pour a full cup of water into the bowl before any reached the basket of greens, keeping runoff from rewetting food once the basket stopped spinning—unlike other spinners we’ve tested. We also found it easy to clean and dry this spinner, but a few small pieces of the lid broke and cracked after we deliberately dropped it from the kitchen counter to the floor as an abuse test. The damage was cosmetic, however, and it still operated as new.

Place your food inside the basket.

Keep the basket of food inside the outer bowl and fill it with water to thoroughly soak the contents.

Lift out the basket.

Let water drain out, and empty the outer bowl. Repeat until the food is free of dirt and grit.

Return the basket to the bowl.

Spin its contents dry. If a lot of water has come off the food, remove the basket, dump the excess water, and spin again.
