Pros: Gets the lettuce dry - fast!
Cons: none really
Tired of cleaning sand and other dirt off your lettuce and ending up with a soggy salad? This product is for you!
We used to run the leafs of lettuce under a tap then lay them out on paper towels to dry, or when I was lazy simply shake them against the side of the sink, (if you are really lazy you can not bother at all and get some iron out of that sandy lettuce). Well those days are over. With the Oxo Pump Action spinner you get clean, dry lettuce - fast.
Simply break off the whole leafs of lettuce, run each briefly under cold tap water and drop into the inner basket. You can do a whole head of leaf lettuce in one spin. Once all the lettuce is in the bowl, place the top on and push down on the pump, once or twice.
The pump action is incredible. The centripetal force from the spinning basket quickly draws all of the water off of the lettuce and deposits into the outer bowl. Pop the lid open and voila, fresh clean, and most importantly dry lettuce ready for your salad. How did we ever go without one of these great mechanisms....
To clean, run the basket under warm water, place back in the clear bowl, lid on and spin.... open and dry inner basket and outer clear basket with a towel.
We paid about $20 on sale. We are eating a lot more salad these days.
