This spinner is available in two sizes. There's a compact version that measures just six inches in diameter, which is perfect for kitchens where space is an issue, and a bigger four-liter version for larger households. It has a locking lid, a high speed geared mechanism for right- and left-handed use, and a non-slip base. The built-in pouring spout is perfect for evenly distributing dressing on your salad.
Also available in small — perfect for herbs and individual portions — and large, for full-on salad sessions, this offers smooth, one-handed operation with a pump mechanism and a brake button. The transparent bowl can be used to serve salad, while the basket doubles as a colander. When you're done spinning, the non-slip knob pushes down and locks for smarter storage.
This jug-shaped salad spinner promises an easy-to-pour spout, an ergonomic good grip handle, and a rotating, easy-to-spin slotted colander basket to whizz any excess water away from your salad greenery. The jug has measurements on it in milliliters, cups, and pints and is made from robust and dishwasher-safe BPA-free plastic. We've chosen the classic green option, but if you're willing to spend a little more, it's also available in red.
A healthy option for families, this robust four-liter salad spinner and dryer boasts "substantial centrifugal force" to wash and dry salad and veg by turning the rotary handle. The design includes four non-slip pads on the base and a pouring spout to drain out the excess water. This also has a locking lid and a substantial slotted, sieve-style basket. It all comes apart for easing cleaning, and as a bonus, it's 100% dishwasher-safe.
A compact option, this affordable small spinner, is perfect for two portions of salad and measures in at a fridge-friendly 19.8 x 19.2 x 19cm. If you're really trying to save space, it's worth noting this also doubles as a measuring jug which is microwave-proof. You simply put your washed salad into the green basket and use the handle to spin before pouring the excess liquid out of the jug spout.
Kitchen Craft's salad spinner measures a family-friendly 10-inches in diameter. It has a locking lid and a pouring hole to add dressings and oil to salad and vegetables. As with other options, the basket can be used as a colander, and the bowl is good-looking enough for the dinner table. Made of food-safe BPA-free plastics, the bowl and basket are dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning.
