You Spin Me Right 'Round!

  • Sep 15, 2011
My mother-in-law recently picked up this salad spinner and I had the chance to use it while helping her out in the kitchen. It worked well and felt to be about the same sturdiness and quality as two other spinners I have used that cost slightly less. They also had the removable mesh tray and a bowl that could be used to serve the salad.

Leifheit's Twist Salad Spinner stands out though for its long "plunger" neck. This makes it easier to hold and to get the spinner up to speed. It really whisks the water away from the leaves and I like it better than the ones you have to turn to spin (ie,: the Sunbeam Flow Thru Salad Spinner). I tested it on pasta too and it worked well on noodles but angel hair pasta found its way through the mesh. In any event, I prefer the models with the spin-knob that pops up from the lid or is just slightly raised - like the OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner. This makes it easier to store in one piece rather than having to disassemble the top to fit it in a cabinet as you have to do here. Otherwise, it does its job well, cleans up easily and has yet to show any signs of stress or breakage (a few months). It is a useful time-saving, if a little bulky, kitchen gadget. 3.5 stars.
