When we got this product, after a couple of of meals, we noticed a metal washer in the lettuce. We weren't sure where it came from. When we put back on the top and continued spinning, we noticed another plastic washer in the lettuce. We could hear rattling noises in the top, which verified something was wrong with the product. This is a SAFETY issue!
We called the manufacturer, and could only leave a voice message. I explained the problem, emphasized that this was a SAFETY issue, and left my phone number for a call back, per their instructions. NO ONE CALLED US BACK.
We buy from Amazon whenever we can. Like Costco, we trust their return policy, etc. This spinner is by far the best one we have had with respect to getting out water from lettuce, etc., so we opted to get a replacement. Amazon sent us our replacement immediately. We still look at our lettuce, but also at the center of the inside of the top, where we can see the washers that fell out of the previous unit.
Our old spinner is the circular crank on the top of the salad spinner lid. It still works well, but is a style that you don't seem to find anymore. We grow a lot of greens in the summer and really go through the salad. So we usually have a couple of spinners going at any one time. Unfortunately, we've had to make do the last few years with one of those Kitchen Aid models with the pump you push down hard to get spinning. From the get-go I knew that was a crummy design as the pressure you were applying was going directly to the bottom of the salad basket. Plus the pump tube running through the entirety of the salad basket used up way too much room in the basket, making for significantly reduced volume of salad. A **really** dumb design. And of course it ultimately failed just as described above--the application of downward pressure on the pump mechanism ultimately broke the bottom of the salad basket--DUH!! Thus rendering the Kitchen Aid into trash. So we shopped around and saw a number of other models with the dreaded pump mechanism--and costly, too. Then we found this unit on Amazon and ordered one. This is an excellent item. Holds a good quantity of salad, spins easily with a more natural cranking motion than the top-crank models (or those dumb cord-pull versions), and really gets the water out of the greens. Very economically priced as well. We use this thing a TON, and it is really holding up to our punishing use. If we need another spinner at some point, this will be the one. Stoked to have found this thing.
I haven't had this long so I don't know about its durability yet, but so far I'm very happy with it. So much easier than trying to dry stuff with towels and paper towels.
**Later--Been using this a few months and very happy with it. I noticed my lettuce lasts a lot longer because I can get all the moisture out. It does tend to move a bit, so you need to make sure it's not near the end of a countertop.

Well, it was nice while it lasted. Loved the fact that you turn a handle to spin it. But within a year the gears on the inside stripped. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Woodcarver
