Comments: Have you dreamt of the luxury of having a salad spinner, but knew in your heart of hearts that you didn’t have the space?

Now your dream can come true if you only have half the space. The unique collapsible design reduces the spinner to half its height for easy storage, but it functions like any other good salad spinner when expanded. The lid includes an integrated brake that stops the spinning motion with the touch of a button. The bowl and basket are dishwasher safe, but the lid must be washed by hand.
