Salad Bowls & Spinners Buying Guide

A new salad bowl and salad spinner can make you feel happy and healthy at the same time. Spinners take the hassle out of washing greens and getting them dry and crisp. They can be used to clean and dry other vegetables and berries, too. Once spun dry, greens can be tossed in a beautiful bowl for a splendid salad presentation.

Types of Salad Bowls & Spinners

Making salad can be hassle-free with the help of a salad spinner, a device that, in essence, washes salad greens and then wrings out the water. Plus, lettuce stays fresh and crisp when stored in the spinner (with the lid on) in the refrigerator. So, get spinning!

Salad bowls

Salad bowls come in all shapes, styles, and sizes. When buying, consider the size of your family, as well as how often you serve salad to guests. You’ll likely want at least a couple salad bowls in varying sizes to accommodate different crowds.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Before purchasing salad bowls or a salad spinner, think about the quantity of salad you typically prepare. Do you usually use 4 cups of salad greens or 10 cups? The amount of greens you use will be a big factor in the salad bowl and spinner size you choose. Bowl selection also depends on whether you like wood, glass, decorative ceramic, or plastic. Spinner selection comes down to size and the type of spinning mechanism you prefer.

Salad Bowls, Material Types

Many salad bowls are made of woods such as cherry, walnut, acacia, or bamboo. Other options include glass, ceramic, and, of course, plastic. Matching pieces for tossing and serving salad can be an added bonus to your salad bowl purchase.

Salad Bowls, Style

Sloped sides, straight sides, or simply shallow ... what is best? If tossed salads are your favorite, consider a bowl with slanted sides, making it easy to mix the ingredients. However, if your specialty is layered salads, select a straight-sided glass bowl so the colorful layers can be seen.

Salad Bowls, Sizes

Before you make a salad bowl purchase, factor in how many people you most often serve and where you plan to store the bowl. If you have the room for storage, you might consider two bowls -- one for everyday use and one large enough to serve a crowd. Single-serving salad bowls can complement the large salad bowl.

Spinners, Material Types

Salad spinners typically include a clear plastic or stainless-steel bowl, a plastic basket, and a plastic lid. Some lids are see- through so you can see what’s spinning.

Spinners, Start-Stop System

While a pump-and-brake system is the most common, a few models offer a retractable cord. The choice is yours whether you’d like to pump an easy-to-press button a few times to spin the basket or simply pull a cord to get the spinning started. The brake is usually a button that stops the basket from spinning.

Spinners, Multipurpose

If you like, the bowl of the spinner can also serve as a serving bowl, and the basket can be used as a colander.

Spinners, Sizes

Salad spinners are available in a couple different sizes, so consider the amount of storage space you have before making a purchase. If you opt for a smaller version, you may need to clean salad greens in batches.
