Pros: dries lettuce fast, perfect size

My Progressive Salad Spinner gets used more than anything else in my kitchen. I seriously could not live without it. I was a little skeptical about buying this one because I read reviews about the string breaking. I do not know how hard those people were pulling on it because mine is incredibly durable.

I bought it about 1.5 years ago. As a mostly raw vegan I eat about 10 heads of lettuce and kale per week. I use this thing almost every day, and I absolutely love it. You just pull the retracting cord on top and it spins the lettuce inside the strainer. The water empties into the surrounding bowl. I do usually spin, empty the water, and then spin again. There is also a brake mechanism on top. You just push it and it stops the basket from spinning. To be truthful, I often just lift the top while it is still in motion.

The size is perfect for a larger salad. You can just dump out the water and then pour the lettuce from the strainer into the bowl. Also, it says that is dishwasher safe, but I always just wash mine by hand. It is seriously one of my most used purchases ever.
