High Quality Salad Spinner Review of the Guzzini Latina

Updated on February 7, 2018

I make salads on a daily basis year round, and I have to say that this salad spinner is one of the best kitchen gadgets I've ever purchased. Before buying the Guzzini Latina I did have one that I'd picked up at a dollar store. That one lasted maybe a month. The Guzzini I've had now for over five years, and it is in the same shape as the day I bought it.

Before I was introduced to salad spinners I would take the lettuce all apart, wash it under cold water then spend a lot of time drying it with paper towels. If there's a product out there that will save me time and energy in the kitchen this is one of them. Not to mention the money I'm saving on paper towels.

If you've never used a spinner before it is really to use. When you take the lid off there is a basket inside. You remove this basket and place torn lettuce into it. Once you are ready to wash the lettuce put the inner basket back into the outer bowl. Fill with cold water covering the lettuce. Put the lid which has a built in hand crank back on the bowl, and turn the crank to spin and wash the lettuce for about 20 seconds.

Remove the inner basket from the bowl and pour out the dirty water. Should the lettuce be really dirty then you may want to spin it a second time with fresh water. Put the basket back into the bowl, cover again with the lid, and spin again. I like to give it a couple of really good spins to get the lettuce nice and dry. Remove the lettuce and place into a bowl to continue making your salad. You can use the actual bowl as a mixing and serving bowl if you wish to do so. Your salad can be stored in bowl with the lid in the refrigerator.

I use my spinner for lettuce, spinach, and bean sprouts. It can also double as a pasta or vegetable strainer.

Do you use a salad spinner?
