What is a cheap but good salad spinner to buy?

Asked by espearite (278 points ) July 9th, 2011

I have been doing some research on how to preserve my greens and veggies and have heard that salad spinners can help keep leafy greens fresh and crisp. What are some good but affordable salad spinners to consider? My price range would be anywhere from $10 to $15. I would appreciate any suggestions that might go lower than my price range as well as a recommendation with user friendly features. Thanks!

I got one at the local discount chain for $10. Check discount stores for that sort of thing.

I simply use a clean and largish dish cloth – place my greens in the center, gather up the corners and swing away. It works just as well without me having to spend an extra cent.

I picked one up at Ikea that works fine. Think it was a couple of dollars! I usually forget to use it though and do what @intrepidium suggests :D

I got an OXO one at Target a few years ago in about that price range. I love it. Don’t know the current price.

It is one of the few gadgets that I use regularly. They are all cheap and should last a lifetime unless you try to dry your cat in it. (There’s more than one way to spin a cat.)

Mine was expensive, but I would bet the cheap ones work just fine. I just wanted to chime in and say salad spinners are awesome.

Thank you all for your kind words of knowledge and encouragement (not to mention good natures). I finally did make up my mind and bought a salad spinner from Wal-Mart. I think I’m going to love this thing!
