This miniature version of the SoftWorks salad spinner has a capacity of 10 ounces and is the perfect size for drying berries, herbs, or salad for two. This little spinner has the same patented pump mechanism as its predecessor, which sets it spinning with one push on the soft knob. A non-slip base keeps the bowl rooted to your countertop while your lettuce is in motion. Water drains through the spinner's colander into the plastic bowl and a patented brake button lets you stop the spinning when the leaves are dry. The lid to the salad spinner also has a airtight lock so you can store greens right in the bowl after draining and drying to extend their storage life. All components of this spinner are dishwasher-safe.

Some things that make it great:
--the mesh basket can be used as a colander to wash your veggies or fruits before spinning them dry
--after spinning, you can toss your veggies/fruit into the clear inner bowl and serve and store them in the clear bowl
--the spinner is easy to use and requires a pushing motion (not a cranking motion), which is especially good if you have arthritis or other joint issues
--the bottom has a rubber grip lining, so the bowl stays put on the counter while you're spinning
--it's top-rack dishwasher safe
This is another fabulous OXO Good Grips product!
UPDATE ON 7-14-13: I still love this spinner, but I may end up picking up a larger one for those larger heads of greens that the grocery store carries.
I also wanted to pass on a tip that I just read in a nutrition book yesterday: the author said that when you spin your greens, you damage the cell wall -- and the greens start going bad more quickly. She recommended washing your produce as soon as you get it home from the grocery store, but waiting to spin it until right before you use it.
I may experiment with this more since I've also read (and have found) that storing wet produce causes it to go bad more quickly. I might just start washing my greens when I need them to avoid these worries, but, in the meantime, I thought I'd pass on that tip!
-the pusher locks for easy storage
-bowl can be used as a bowl, and basket as a strainer
-small size easy to store and keeps berries from bouncing around and getting bruisedp
-small size means multiple batches for larger tasks.
I live alone, in a small apt with a small fridge, so this size makes sense for me. Herbs, berries, and small portions don't get lost, and it fits really in my small cabinets and 3/4 fridge.
Even though I live alone, I rarely cook or prep single servings (hello leftovers). I think multiple batches is more effective for removing moisture for larger amounts anyway, so I don't see that as a huge con. If you do, or if you routinely prep large batches of salad, you may want the larger version.
