The Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner is an excellent product. It is great for washing and drying lettuce, herbs, greens, grapes, strawberries and just about any fruit or vegetable.

When I wrote this page in 2009, it was Amazon's bestselling salad spinner as well as the spinner with the best customer reviews having received over 300 five-star customer reviews!

Not only does it do well statistically but I know personally that it performs amazingly. I absolutely LOVE my salad spinner! It makes a job that I do not like doing fast and easy. If you are still struggling with an old salad spinner that doesn't work properly or worse yet still drying your lettuce on a kitchen towel, I recommend you give the Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner a whirl.

The Oxo Salad Spinner Video

Great salad recipes call for properly washed and dried lettuce. One of the most useful kitchen gadgets you can own is the salad spinner. Chef Jason Hill shows you how it works in this short video:

  2. Has a soft, cushioned, nonslip knob.
  3. Has a 'brake' button stops the spinning quickly with just a fingertip.
  4. Has a handle that locks in the down position to make it easier to store.
  5. Has a non-slip ring on the base.
  6. Is dishwasher safe on the top rack.

How Does A Salad Spinner Work?

It's pretty simple, actually. You place the clean, washed lettuce in the basket, place the basket of lettuce in the bowl, put on the lid, press the large button a matter of seconds you have clean, dry lettuce for your salads. The spinner uses centrifugal force to spin the lettuce dry, the water collects in the bowl.


"I've avoided making salads for a long time because of the preparation time. I had an older salad spinner, but it was the kind you had to turn, and cleaning it afterwards always seemed to take a long time. This spinner is a huge improvement over any I've used before." - PM444

"You really win with this one. Wash, spin, much less to wash and it is never boring. It is quite large so you do need a big space to store it in the refrigerator, unless you have a big refrigerator, then it is no problem." - Rebecca Johnson

"I was introduced to OXO tools by my sister when she gave me one of their peelers. She swore that it would make me search for things to peel because it was such a pleasure to use. She was absolutely right!

Since then I have become an avid OXO devotee and own many of their products. But the VERY BEST of them all is the OXO Salad Spinner.

I adore leafy lettuce but always found washing it to be such a chore that on some days I would just skip the salad routine altogether. I had used several styles of lettuce spinners during the past 20 years, but none were even in the same league as the OXO Salad Spinner. Believe it or not --- I actually enjoy washing greens with this device and use it every day. Using the best tool available makes any task more satisfying, and this is the creme de la creme of salad spinners.

Have no doubt, this is a purchase you will be glad you made each time you use it. And you will want to use it! I've found that washing the lettuce and draining the excess water from the bowl, then refrigerating the lettuce in the spinner before spinning yields crispy greens. A good thing to do early in the day, then just a quick spin later for a fast salad. I, as another reviewer wrote, also give this item frequently as a gift and it is always a hit." - A Leafy Lettuce Lover

If You Like To Make A Lot Of Salad, I Highly Recommend Getting A Salad Spinner!

After years of heavy use, my salad spinner finally quit and I was gifted a replacement that was not an Oxo spinner. I struggle on with the replacement but can honestly say that it is not nearly as good as my first spinner was and that my husband and grown sons hate it because it is so fussy to use.

I still highly recommend the Oxo one.

Unfortunately, it comes and goes in availability. Today, I see it readily available on eBay but not on Amazon. I recommend trying both locations to find yours and being sure that you are getting a new one.

      My husband wants salad for lunch today. This would be a big help. Had one years ago but never replaced it. I need to do that.

      I had an awful salad spinner years ago, It had drain holes in the bottom - so it leaked all over the place.

      I have this exact salad spinner and love it. At first I thought it was kind of an excessive novelty item for the kitchen, but now I can't make a salad without it! OXO gadgets are the best. Thanks for the excellent recommendation lens, Brenda.

      I simply could not make salad in a reasonable time without my salad spinner. I don't have the OXO, but mine works great too. I also use it for batches of fresh basil I've washed and need to "spin" before I cut it up.

      I have never used a salad spinner but based on your recommendations I'd be inclined to try this one.

      I do have one (different brand) but rarely use it, to be honest. I've bought some Oxo Good Grips products in the past few months and like them a lot. Quality stuff!
