Dancing Spoon - SoftWorks Salad Spinner

Dancing Spoon - SoftWorks Salad Spinner

As I found to be equally true with my cell phone, there are a finite number of times that you can drop the top of an OXO Salad Spinner on a hard surface. Even a product of such high quality as the OXO Salad Spinner has its limits. (My cell phone had its limits too, but not quite as many.) For me, a salad spinner is a requirement of my kitchen: its uses go beyond merely making lettuce dizzy. I use my salad spinner for cleaning and drying lettuce, parsley, sage leaves, green beans, brussel sprouts, and any other herb or vegetable that needs cleaning and drying before using. So I really needed a new salad spinner. Again, just like my new cell phone, the technology followed Moore’s Law: the new salad spinner that I bought was the OXO SoftWorks and the upgrade is terrific! (I’m switching metaphors now: we’re going from cell phones to cars.) This model is turbocharged: it just spins faster with less effort. And the basket just keeps on going...The braking system (yes, it has a braking system) is a little underpowered and you really need to bear down to stop high RPMs. (But you won’t want to because the clear bowl allows you to watch the magic of centrifugal force as an amazing amount of water separates itself from your lettuce leaves.)
