As you know, I'm trying to eat healthier with real whole food. (Our Journey To Healthier Eating Begins) and that has prompted me to eat more salads (minus the sugary fatty dressings and croutons).
But, I didn't have a salad spinner, and although I would try to dry my lettuce with paper towels, I would still wind up with super wet lettuce. So when I heard about the Key Largo Traders Salad Spinner, I couldn't wait to test it out.
It is a large 4.5 quart salad spinner. The basket doubles as a colander, and the bowl could be used as a serving dish for the salad.
So Lil Man and I put it to a test. First of all, it was super easy to use. Put the washed lettuce in the colander, place it in the bowl, put the lid on, and press the handle. Yeah, it isn't really that complicated is it?
Lil Man thought it was super fun to do. :)
And it definitely spun the water off of the lettuce.
I put a lot of lettuce in there, and I probably should have spun it some more. The lettuce wasn't bone dry, but it was definitely dry enough to make a salad. And next time I will either use a smaller amount or spin it longer.
The 'stop' button came in handy to stop the spinning so that I could go ahead and get the lettuce out without having to wait for it to stop on its own. Overall, I'm pleased with the Key Largo Traders Salad Spinner, and I know that my family will put it to good use.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
