salad spinnerI have the OXO, and until recently, I did not believe there could possibly be one better. My daughter hosted a Pampered Chef party, and I totally fell in love with the one they make. The pump action and spin is smooth and efficient. Being of a practical mind, however, I chose to remain faithful to the one I already own. I did convince my daughter to get the Pampered Chef, though. Because it was one of the discounted hostess items, she could purchase it for $20 instead of the regular $50 (worth every cent!). My daughter had not owned a spinner, and did not see the need for one. But she is now a convert, using it frequently. A plus for her is that her 4yr old son loves to pump the handle to make it spin.
With both these spinners, the clear bowl can also be used as a decent-looking bowl for serving the salad.
I highly recommend both. OXO is available for $25to $30. While the Pampered Chef is more, it would be my first choice if I did not already have the OXO. It comes with a handy smaller inner basket for doing small batches of salad greens, herbs or for spinning foods that need gentler handling, such as berries.
