Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner

Best salad spinner

Pros
  • Easy to use and clean
  • Durable compared with corded models
  • Large capacity
Cons
  • Bulky and difficult to store
  • Bowl or lid may crack over time

The Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner is the best salad spinner overall, according to expert and user reviews. It's easy to operate and clean, and it has several unique features, including a brake that allows you to quickly stop the basket from rotating. The hand pump can be locked down for easier storage. Hundreds of owners posting to Amazon.com say this spinner is effective and durable. The only downsides to this spinner are its large size (10 inches wide by 10 inches tall) and the possibility of the lid or bowl cracking over time. If you are looking for a more compact salad spinner, reviews point to the Oxo Good Grips Little Salad and Herb Spinner (*Est. $25), which is about 8 inches wide.

We read the best reviews of the Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner in Cook's Illustrated, perhaps the most respected cookware review source. At Amazon.com, the Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner has accumulated an average of 4.5 stars in more than 460 reviews, although some of these reviews refer to the smaller Oxo Good Grips Little Salad and Herb Spinner.

1. Cook's Illustrated Magazine

Editors at Cook's Illustrated test three salad spinners, the Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner, the Zyliss Smart Touch Salad Spinner and Chef'n Large Salad Spinner. This short report is an update of earlier testing that included just two models, although we wish more salad spinners were included in this roundup.

2. Amazon.com

Amazon.com allows customers to post candid reviews of the products they own, sometimes letting you see problems emerging over time that professional reviewers can miss. The Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner is a big hit, with the overwhelming majority of reviewers giving it five stars. Reviews are grouped together between the Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner and the Oxo Good Grips Little Salad and Herb Spinner, however, so it can be confusing to tell which specific model is being reviewed.
