One thing my family eats every day is salads. They work well with almost every meal and are a great way to load up on veggies. Unfortunately, the lettuces and veggies can get pretty soggy when you clean them. A good salad spinner is a must for getting those crunchy goodies ready to eat. We were recently given the opportunity to see if the MIU COLOR Salad Spinner was up to the task!
I have to say that I found the MIU COLOR Salad Spinner much more visually appealing than many of the spinners we have tried. The smooth crank handle and soft white color would look great in any kitchen. The handle, cover, and outer bowl are all well constructed and have thus far proven durable. The inner bowl is a bit too lightweight and likely to be more prone to breaking, in my opinion.
It’s a little on the small side for a family. We typically use a large bag of pre-made salad or several lettuces at once. It has roughly a gallon capacity. This is large enough for a typical head of lettuce or three generous side salads. If you keep smaller amounts in stock or are in the habit of washing and spinning lettuce only as it’s needed, this will work great.
In the past, I have worked only with salad spinners that use a cord to get the inner bowl spinning. The MIU COLOR Salad Spinner uses more of a gear-like system where the crank spins a piece on the cover. This piece is connects with the inner bowl to spin. I am able to get a much faster spin going with this system than I ever could with a corded bowl, which means my salads and vegetables become much drier. Check out that centrifugal force! It’s spinning so fast the lettuce gets pushed to the sides.
Another cool feature of this bowl is the pour spout. I have not seen this before, but it’s one of those features that makes me ask, “Why doesn’t every salad spinner have this?” It’s a very convenient way to get rid of the excess water neatly.
All of the pieces can be washed in a dishwasher, which is a major selling point for me. Anything that simplifies clean-up is a win. The MIU COLOR Salad Spinner has not shown any obvious wear from being dishwashed. The lack of a cord has also meant that the salad spinner dries out more easily and no moldy cord.
Pros: Stylish design. Sturdy crank design. Powerful spinning action. No cord. Easy to clean.
Cons: Inner bowl a little flimsy.
I received this at a discount in exchange for my opinion. As someone who relies on honest reviews to make purchases, I work hard to provide other consumers with a thorough, truthful, and unbiased opinion of my personal experiences.
