Progressive Salad Spinner

Picture 175A salad spinner is a must have item in my kitchen because how else am I suppose to make my delicious salads. I picked this Progressive salad spinner up at Marshalls for about $9.99. Cheap and has lasted me a while. The basket is removable so I like to wash everything in the basket, strained the water, chop up my veggies, toss my salad and whisk my salad dry with a couple of presses on the spin device. I love how big the basket is so I can make a large serving of salad to store for later too. You salad will last longer in the fridge if you it is dry. I usually make a gigantic salad and either eat it as a main component of my meal with added protein or as small side to a pasta or sandwich. Sometimes, when my fridge is empty, I can store the whole thing in the fridge too.

The spinner is relatively easy to use. You press on the top handle and the basket within spins, creating a circular motion that whisks the water out and it collects in the outer plastic bowl. There is a lock mechanism that locks the top handle in place for easier storage and a simple “stop” button that creates friction and stops the spinner from spinning. Once you invest in a salad spinner, you will never look back. No more soggy wet salads at home. Make you salad eating more enjoyable with simple gadgets like a salad spinner.

Speaking of kitchen tools and gadgets. I‘m going to be getting a mini food processor to review on The Skinny Plate from the lovely peeps over at www.cookware.com. They have tons of everyday brands like Cuisinart, Rachel Ray Cookware and even the most coveted Vita-Mix blender and Breville juicer at very competitive prices.

Retails: $9.99 @ Marshalls
My Cost: $9.99
