Just Wondering ...

... if I'm the last one on the planet to get a salad/lettuce spinner?
Smallish in size .. salad/lettuce spinner.
I make salad twice a day and need washed and dried lettuce quickly, especially for our son's packed school lunch.  To me these gadgets seemed to be a big space waster.  But after being the recipient of one for my recent birthday, I'm a happy camper!  The model I received can have tap water running through it while the lettuce spins; which really doesn't work that well at actually washing, but it does an awesome job of drying cut/washed lettuce.  Bye-bye wet-soggy salads! 
A quick rinse and the spinner is clean enough to put away.

LOL - I have been looking for a salad spinner, but cannot fnd one in our local little town. They are space wasters, are't they.

Can't live without mine. Such a simple but effective kitchen gadget. :)

I waited 32 years of my adult life to finally plunk down the money. Though I prefer using it to my old methods, I do hate the space it takes up in my tiny kitchen. Oh well.......

@LOL Sue .. 32 years! I waited almost as long for my first seam ripper.

Angela .. oh my, using the spinner for basil .. now that will be helpful this summer.

I love mine as well but my favorite thing is that it is also wonderful for keeping the washed lettuce fresh for quite a while. I just store it as is in the refrigerator.
