How To Choose Salad Spinners For Great Salads
Put it, rinse it and spin it to dry. Using a salad spinner is that easy. Yes of course I mean using a salad spinner should not only be easy but cleaning it should be more convenient. For those these things are incomprehensible I will explain in details.
A salad spinner is the easiest and quickest way to wash and dry the greens in salad. A salad spinner is a plastic bowl with a removable plastic strainer and special top, which when closed and activated, spins the strainer inside the bowl.
Those who are into making salads can understand how much difficult it gets to wash the greens and trying to pat them dry using paper towels. Try it once and then you will admire this small and handy kitchen gadget. Using salad spinner you can rinse the salad ingredients for any dirt and then dry them just by spinning it around.
Letís see how easy it is to handle the salad spinner. First put the strainer basket in the salad spinner bowl and put the greens inside. Then add enough water so that you can rinse the greens well. Remove the strainer from the salad bowl to drain off the water. Again rinse the bowl with clean water. You can repeat the steps if you need to be sure that it is properly clean.
After washing and draining the greens (upto satisfaction level) return the strainer with the greens to the salad spinner bowl. Fix the top on the bowl and spin it to dry (this is the most exciting part in the whole process). With a good salad bowl you will find the process easy and the greens water free in the serving bowl.
Now while choosing a salad right salad bowl for you do test it on some parameters. Get a model that is sturdy, has a tight fitting lid and spins easily. Also it should have a solid base so that it wonít trip over while spinning a big quantity. First">All these features are a must look for but I would also suggest a salad spinner which is big enough to hold, wash and dry greens for entire family (rather than putting it again and again to work).
Hygiene is another important part which I would like to draw your attention to. Most of the salad spinners are easy to operate but really taxing to clean. Get your self one which is easy to use as well as to clean. Salad spinners come in a variety of sizes and designs, though all of them work on the same principle (Let me guess! it works on centrifugal force).
Some spinners have knob-lids for manual spinning. Others operate on pump action by a cylinder that pops up from the lid. Using your palm, you press down on the cylinder or pump to generate the spinning motion. Most pump action salad spinners also have a brake in the form of a button in the lid. When you want the spinning to stop, you simply press the button.
One more suggestion, a salad spinner can be used to store salad in the refrigerator. Although salad spinners are dishwasher safe, kindly read he product manual before putting it into the dishwasher.
