UPDATE:

I like it. After using the spinner for several loads, it works very well. For some items, you may need to spin it separately or twice depending on materials. But I really like it now. I had to get used to pressing the salad spinner in place as it spun and limited the amount of clothes in each spin, but this works very well. I still think its a bit pricey, but I should be able to break-even on costs in the next few months or so.

I imagine that for lettuce, this would be excellent.

OLD REVIEW:
Although,the salad spinner is a great idea for wringing clothes to quicken hang dry times, I have to say that the product is okay.

Some background about my perspective- Generally, I like to wash clothes in a machine washer with a gentle cycle and hang dry t-shirts and jeans to retain the integrity of the fabric. I also like that I don't need to iron my t-shirts as they dry quickly and jeans will dry within 24 hours. I recently moved to an apartment with limited washers and dryers and in order to do laundry in a timely manner, I would have to go to a laundry mat, which is just as busy. I don't enjoy spending my evening at the laundry mat. So I decided to do laundry at home with a breathable rapid washer, wring clothes with a salad spinner, and hang dry clothes, I'd rather be home cooking dinner, catching up on some tv, and with the option to do several small loads each night which takes about 30 minutes to wash and rinse. My dilemma was wringing clothes to aid in the drying process. Hanging to dry is simple and takes no more than 10 minutes. Plus I wanted something manual so that I could use if I didn't have electricity.

So my research led me to a salad spinner as an alternative to a wringing clothes. My first load was bed sheets and it was hard work for a small amount of water out. I have to say that it was less intensive than using my hands, but there was modest value given the price of the spinner. I can't compare to a hand crank wringer as I haven't used one and with bed sheets. I would be interested in purchasing a small clothes centrifuge (machine generated clothes wringer), which costs just the same as this salad spinner. But since I've already invested in this salad spinner, I will see how my t-shirts and dresses will do. For bedding and towels, I'll just commit to using a machine dryer, whether at my apartment or at the laundry mat.

i use this for a restaurant every day and washing and drying romain properly is a must for great fresh food. I have broken one of the plastic Gears (in the top to spin the basket) and ordered a small gear for $25. Worth it because i can repair this spinner as opposed to throwing it out of the gears wear out or break.

Def get this if you want your romaine to keep dry and not brown during before lunch or dinner rush

4 stars because i had to replace a broken plastic gear

I love this spinner so much! I sell at my local Farmers Market and I am saving so much time processing my greens now that I have this spinner. I use to do it all by hand and it would take me all day to do what the spinner does for me in a quarter of the time. I use it for lettuce, spinach, chard and beet greens. If you process as many bags of greens as I do in a week, you have to get this product! Love it!

Beleave it or not I use it for a clothes spin dryer. Worked pretty good to. Could only do 2 or 3 shirts or pants at a time and getting the load balanced is tricky it almost always wobbles around at least a little.

Great product! It saved me lots of time and thoroughly dried the lettuce and spinach ready to bag for sale at the market.

This seems to be a fine unit, but i wish i had looked a bit harder and gotten a bigger one. This is really not that big for commercial use (market farm).

Great product! We a small food producer and this product allows us to have a quality salad green mix that sells well at the farmer's market!

I have a produce farm and needed way to mass produce washed and "dried" salad mixes. This spinner works great. My only complaint is it is heavy to hold steady as you turn the handle. And there is no brake to stop the spinning.
