How to Use a Salad Spinner

Get your greens squeaky clean in a few simple steps.

Published Oct. 9, 2018.

Fill the basket with greens.
Fill the salad spinner with water so that all the greens are mostly covered, and then gently slosh greens around.
Raise basket to drain.
Dump out bowl of water and repeat until greens are free of dirt and grit.
Return basket to bowl and spin dry. If a lot of water has come off greens, remove basket, dump excess water, and spin again.
Our favorite salad spinner has an easy-to-operate pump and a break that allows you to stop spinning without any fuss.
