OXO Salad Spinner Giveaway

I have such a cool gadget to show you guys today! A few weeks ago OXO reached out to me and asked if I would like to review one of their kitchen products. I am a huge fan of OXO, they make some of my favorite storage containers, so of course I said yes. 

I was really excited when I opened up the package and saw their salad spinner. I have been wanting a salad spinner for forever. As a vegetarian I make salads a few times a week and hate having to deal with towel drying soaking wet veggies. I can never seem to get them all the way dry and usually end up with bowl of still wet salad.

Well no more with this bad boy! It has an awesome pump design with an easy stopping button. I’m not going to lie, I pressed the spin button and then the stop button over and over for a good solid five minutes when I first unpacked the salad spinner. Its so fun, and I’m secretly five. ;p

While reading more about the salad spinner I learned that it can spin fruits and veggies too! I had a hankering for asparagus after reading Mama Pea’s awesome recipe last night and decided to test out the spinner with asparagus.

I wasn’t going easy on this spinner, I cut up over a pound of asparagus, rinsed it, and then dropped it soaking wet into the spinner.

With the click of a lid and the push of a button it was spinning time!

Voila! Dried asparagus ready for cooking.

An added bonus is that the dryer basket pops out of the spinner for easy transfer. I took it right over to the stove and transferred the asparagus directly onto the baking sheet. If I didn’t want to cook it all today I could have left some of the asparagus in the spinner and put it in the refrigerator where it would keep it fresh.

But I did want to cook up all the asparagus. :D It turned out amazing, I already packed a container full of it for work tonight.

Using the spinner was a breeze and it handled asparagus great. I will definitely be using this for future salads and future fruit and veggie washings.

And the best part of trying out the spinner is getting to offer one to one of you guys! OXO was so sweet to let me give one away!

    I remember when my mom had the salad spinner and I would just spin the salad’s dry. Do you see how expensive they are now in the store? that’s why I don’t have one.

    I receive a monthly CSA shipment with lots of greens. This would come in SO handy. I would use it to spin them all dry when I use them.

    Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

    I would love the salad spinner. i make a lot of baked kale and would love to be able to wash and dry it in this before i bake it :)

    I would love a salad spinner because it is such a convenient kitchen gadget. I feel like I waste so many paper towels when drying washed fruit and veggies and this would eliminate that waste and make drying easier.

    I already have the small OXO spinner — I really don’t know what I would do without it! But I constantly wish I had the bigger size. One for salads and one for veggies — score!

    I wouldn’t have thought to do asparagus in the salad spinner… now I can see lots more time saving possibilities other than just leafy greens. I don’t have a spinner and would love to win this one!

    I try to make a lot of fresh veggies an salads to teach my son and soon son or daughter how to eat healthy. This would come in handy when it comes to being pressed for time after work to get dinner on the table at a reasonable hour :)

    I make salads a few times a week and am so tired of using a ridiculous amount of paper towels just to try the lettuce. I’ve been wanting a salad spinner for a couple years, but I was in college and that wasn’t the right time for extra appliances haha.

    We registered for a salad spinner before we got married, and I was really excited when I saw that someone had purchased one for us! Our shower and wedding came and went, and we never received the salad spinner. I went back and checked our registry and saw that it no longer said “Purchased.” :-( I’m not sure what happened, but we still haven’t bought one, and have been dealing with sopping wet salads ever since!

    Varieties of lettuce will make up half our garden this year. Will have a salad every night, so this will keep meal prep from being a chore.

    As a college student I have no time to make my lunches, and a salad spinner would save a bunch of time!

    ohmygoshhh this would CHANGE my LIFE! I’m a veg-a-holic, and the one thing I’m not so great about is actually drying my veggies after rinsing them. This leads to less than gorgeous results in the oven, or completely watery salads, and simply not the best veggies my veggies could be.

    This would make life so simple.

    While I have never owned one, every time I see an OXO salad spinner I play with it. I just love how durable it is and I am sure it would wash and dry my veggies so much better than the cheaply made, overpriced contraption I own that claims to be a salad spinner. It only holds a half-head of lettuce and the leaves always come out damp no matter how long I spin the bowl.

    The real question is who wouldn’t benefit from a salad spinner :) Either it makes you want to make salad more often…. or you are already a salad freak like me and this would just enhance your salads! Love it!
