**Update 2015 – Dexas has discontinued this salad spinner model, much to my chagrin. I’m glad I was able to get my hands on one before they stopped manufacturing them. I remain a big fan of its effectiveness in drying lettuce and herbs better than any salad spinner I have used to date.
The Oxo stainless steel salad spinner has a decent size bowl made of fine quality stainless steel that will never break not catch rust or corrosion. It has a non-slip base so while spinning the salad, your salad spinner remains motionless. The top lid in this stainless salad spinner is transparent so that you can view the entire spinning process with your own eyes. The knob on the top presses easily to start the spinning process and this removes all the micro dirt particles including non-visible germs that do not get removed when you just clean the salad greens without a salad spinner.
The Oxo stainless steel salad spinner measures 8x8x6 inches and weighs just 2.2 lbs. A basket lies inside the stainless steel bowl that contains the salads to be cleaned. The basket capacity is 2.44 quarts while the bowl has 3.13 quarts capacity. The basket comes out easily for cleaning. All the parts are dishwasher safe and can also be washed by hands. With this handy small salad spinner you can clean your salads and herbs in just few seconds.
The company has moved to a collapsible version, based on what they said customers wanted. I have never personally been a fan of collapsible salad spinners, but I guess some do actually like them.
