2-0 out of 5 stars Worked great until it broke
This was a wonderful salad spinner for the several months it worked.Then it broke.In my kitchen, very few things break.The occasional wooden spatula after fifteen years of use is fine but things tend not to break unless I drop them.This is my second Oxo product that broke while I was using it (the other one was a knife--yes, a knife snapped in two while I was cutting).I still love my Oxo peeler but with two out of three of my Oxo products breaking, I'm done with Oxo for the most part.

1-0 out of 5 stars worked well until it exploded
I bought this item and used it for about 2 months, then It exploded while I was spinning a salad and was impossible to repair. I went on to buy a Tupperware salad spinner (green) and have been using it for four years with no problems at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Agree it's great ... but it has 1 huge problem
This has got to be the best salad spinner ever, on that point I agree with all the other rave reviews. But just try picking this unit up off a shelf when you have wet hands--or even dry hands!!!!!!! It's difficult!!!! Just wish they would put a small, very small, handle, ridge or inset on the bowl!!! Please!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars So USEFUL!!!
This is by far the most used thing in my kitchen... I'm not much of a cook, so I make a lot of salads.I used to cut my romaine and spread it all over the counter on paper towels to blot it dry.I got the salad spinner from a friend, and it has been awesome!The lettuce is practically dry to the touch after you spin it once or twice.This is definitely worth the price and more!

5-0 out of 5 stars The best
This salad spinner is wonderful.It has a lock top, to make it easier to store.Plus, the spinner is strong enough to spin my potatoes when I want to make French Fries!

It is sturdy...easy-to-clean...easy-to-store (you can slip other things inside it). ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

One second is all it takes to yield perfectly cut fruit slices with this tool by Oxo. Also a great tool for pears, the apple divider's soft, oversize rubber handles relieve and absorb the pressure from your hands for a nearly effortless cut. Positioned at an angle upward from the blade base, the handles ensure that hands and fingers have ample clearance from tabletops and cutting boards. Stainless steel makes the blades easy to clean and dishwasher-safe.

The Good Grips line features durable, nonslip, flexible handles on every product. Ergonomically designed to fit the palm comfortably and softly, the pressure-absorbing processed rubber handle puts less tension on the hands while still providing an outstanding grip. Made from the same material as dishwasher gaskets, the handles are slip-proof--wet or dry--as well as dishwasher-safe. Good Grips products are moderately priced and have won the Tylenol/Arthritis Foundation Design Award. --Laurie Notaro ... Read more

Features

  • Dishwasher-safe
  • Lifted, nonslip handles keep hands above the cutting surface
  • Rubber handles absorb pressure, putting less tension on hands
  • Cores and evenly slices fruit with one maneuver
  • Stainless-steel blades glide easily through fruit and tough skins

5-0 out of 5 stars I bought 3 different apple dividers; this one was best
I recently needed to cut a mountain of apples for a party. I knew that not all apple dividers were created equal and I wanted to have the best one. So I went out and bought three different ones to test before the big day. I wasn't crazy about the OXO's looks (I preferred the sleek stainless steel model I found for triple the price at Williams Sonoma), but in terms of utility--and honestly what other criterion should an apple divider be rated on?--the OXO divider was hands down the best. It slices the apple into 8 slices rather than 12. The fact that it cuts fewer slices makes the divider easier to use. Also the center hole for the core was just slightly larger than on the other two models I tried and that made it so that I needed to do fewer touchups with the knife on the OXO sliced apples. Also, the greater ease of cutting made it easier to cut straight slices, rather than wavy, uneven ones. The rubber handles are good because if you must cut a lot of apples rather than just one, the slipperiness of the juice can become an issue.

5-0 out of 5 stars Durable, easy to use--apple consumption way up at out house!
I love this thing! It's durable, easy to use and clean, and it's offset design protects whatever surface you are using it on.

Since we bought it we now buy twice as many apples as we used to. The kids now snack on fresh apple more often and junk food less often. This alone has made this one of the best return to investment ratio products I've ever bought!

(My kids are middle-high scholl age--I'd be a ltiile carefuil with younger kids using it--the blades are sharper than they look.)

I just orderd a second one to keep at my office for quick & healthy afternoon snacks!

Frankly, I feel no home should be without one of these!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Slicer
It is very sturdy and the blades are sharp. I used to have an all-metal one (not OXO), but it would bend when I pushed down on it. The OXO slices through the apple quickly and easily, and the rubber grips are easy on the hands.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great tool
I love this item, and the apple consumption in our house has gone up quite a bit since we got it. This tool makes cutting an apple very easy and fun, and so more apples are eaten each day.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good while it lasted
This tool is _almost_ perfect, from the comfortable grips to the well honed blades. Unfortunately, the plastic body is simply not durable enough. After about 6 months, the plastic cracked beyond repair.

If Oxo would replace the plastic body with one of metal, I'd buy another, even at twice the price. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A true multitasker
This thing is great! It's up for scraping the seeds out of a cuke, coring apples, and even (!) making pretty little melon balls. It's easy to clean, it's grippy, and it comes with two different sizes on the ends - just one scoop didn't cut it for OXO. They went above and beyond the call of duty. If only the people who set the price on this thing would do the same... Though it's somewhat pricey for the small gadget it is, I think it's worth the money just in the amount of time it saves me scooping the seeds out of the middle of apples. And plums and other small stone fruit as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars I could write a memoir about me and melon ballers.
Absolutely the best melon baller you're going to find short of the electro/mechanical Tobina Deluxe... Save yourself the money, this one is a winner!

5-0 out of 5 stars Sturdy & Comfortable
I previously had a "Brand X" melon baller which, with occasional use, developed a cracked handle which I had to tape to keep together and later, the scoop end broke off! I broke down and got the best... the OXO is really sturdy and, as with all their products, comfortable to use. I can tell I'll get years of use out of it without it falling to pieces like my previous one. It just goes to show, even with a product that only gets occasional use, it doesn't pay to get a cheap one!

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for melons or mini ice cream scoops :)
I recently saw a recipe which suggested making small scoops of cherry flavored ice cream. Then they poured hard-shell chocolate syrup over them. They sounded yummy! I love this tool when making a fruit salad. It has nice sharp edges and can cut out two sizes of melon balls.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good tool
This is a good quality tool. I expected the 'good grips' handles to be soft and squishy, but they are quite hard. They don't slip around though, even when wet, which is nice. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY
My husband bought the OXO salad spinner (the only one available in most of the local stores) when my previous salad spinner, a Zyliss, was lost in a move.

I was disappointed from the beginning. The OXO spinner's action is inferior to the Zyliss, which spins in two directions and gets the greens much drier in less time. Also, the construction of the lid allows water to collect between two "layers" where it is impossible to wash properly or to dry, allowing mildew to grow.

After two years of almost daily use, the push-down mechanism in the lid became completely inoperable and I had to discard the lid as useless. (I'm keeping the inner basket to plant summer bulbs in to make them easier to lift and store in the fall.)

I have just purchased another
Zyliss Salad Spinner from Amazon and was astounded to see that it is only half the price of the OXO. It arrived this week and I couldn't be happier with it. Don't spend twice the money for an inferior product!

5-0 out of 5 stars Salad Spinners Unite!
If you want to get a bit fancy with your salad spinning, this is the one to buy. Not only can you spin the lettuce and remove all the water, you can use the bowl to serve a salad or store lettuce in the inner bowl.

It is so easy to use. You release the lock mechanism at the top and press down. The inner basket starts to spin, removing most of the water from the lettuce. I love the fact that you can rinse the lettuce in the removable inner basket.

You really win with this one. Wash, spin, store...so much less to wash and it is never boring. It is quite large so you do need a big space to store it in the refrigerator, unless you have a big refrigerator, then it is no problem.

If you have memories of trying to swing lettuce around in a kitchen towel, or have tried to use paper towels while they are falling apart all over the lettuce, you must try spinning in this great salad spinner. Once you have spun the lettuce you can remove the inner bowl and dump out the water.

I see they now have a mini spinner. I want, I need. That would be great for spinning herbs and small quantities of lettuce.

5-0 out of 5 stars don't be dumb
I used the microwave to cook the chard I had just picked in the bowl of my Spinner. It is now totally unusable - it is warped and doesn't fit any more and I was stupid to try it. I will certainly buy another spinner - since I can't find a replacement bowl on Internet.
It is handy for picking veggies; just dump them in the sink, then spin. It's a great product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great product but doesn't last forever
I am online to buy my THIRD OXO salad spinner. It's the BEST for getting lettuce really clean and really dry (so dressing will stick). But I use it 4-5 times a week, and the spinner mechanism doesn't hold up as well as I'd hope. Nevertheless, I can't live without it, so excuse me while I go purchase another...

1-0 out of 5 stars More of a toy than actual need
I thought that this would actually be something that I would need when I registered for this for my wedding. But this is more of a toy for the kitchen than something that you will actually use. Sure kids might like to use it when they cook, but in all the time that I have owned one, I have only used it once. Its more of a hassle because you have to clean it out afterwards. You are better off without it. ... Read more

With the apple set by Oxo, coring, cutting, and peeling fruit couldn'tbe easier. Perfect for apples or pears, the apple divider's soft,oversize rubber handles relieve the pressure from your hands andabsorb it for a nearly effortless cut. Positioned at an angle upwardfrom the base of stainless-steel blades, the handles ensure that handsand fingers have ample clearance from tabletops and cutting boards. With flexible, rotating, beveled stainless-steel blades, the accompanying swivel peeler can contour to almost any surface shape. The large cushioned rubber handle is nonslip, dry or wet, and makes peeling comfortable, even with repetitive strokes.

4-0 out of 5 stars Handy tool
This is a great pair for the kitchen. Another fine product from the Oxo people, with their very comfortable and large grips. Why not a 5-star rating? The apple slicer could be larger. It's great for your average size apple, but don't try to use it on a large pear or apple. Otherwise, they are excellent tools for the kitchen.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
This is a very excellent tool to have for the kitchen!! Kids will often only eat an apple if it is sliced, peeled, and or cored. This is a very handy item, that makes preparing fruits very easy. You also get even slices, and the kids can do it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars At last, an easy to clean, easy to use garlic press
I saw this garlic press when I was shopping for a new stockpot. One glance and i was removing it from the package for closer inspection, and sure enough it went home with me that day (even though I had to wait in line for 10+ minutes at Linens-n-Things watching another clerk folding towels instead of running the register!!)

This press mashes garlic into a paste with little effort. I have carpal tunnel problems and can manage this just fine. Multiple cloves, no problem, it can take one right anfter another. Then, wonder of wonders, the mesh screen pops right out and due to the non-stick coating, the garlic easily rinses off the press and the mesh screen. Five seconds more or less and you're done, it takes far more time to break a clove out of the garlic bulb.

My Susi Deluxe is on the way to the thrift shop, minus of course, the little plastic widget that one is supposed to use to clean the galic from the little holes. That was gone shortly after I purchased it, and instead I have to use a fork to poke the garlic shreds out of the press -- ick.

This will definitely go in my next basket of essential kitchen gadgets for the newlywed! As for mine, I'm hanging on to it for a good long while. ... Read more

If you love your OXO salad spinner, here’s a way to make it even more useful. This four-piece accessory kit includes a covered berry basket, which fits snugly inside both OXO’s large and small salad spinners and dries berries and herbs delicately without bruising or damaging them. The set also features a nylon lettuce knife for cutting greens without causing them to brown as a stainless-steel knife can. Finally, a lid to the salad spinner itself lets you store greens right in the spinner after drying and extends their storage life. All components of this kit are dishwasher-safe (top rack only for the lid and berry basket) and easy to store. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Lid only for large salad spinner
I bought this as a gift to go along with the small salad spinner that I had purchased. Everything sounded great, such as the berry basket fitting both the small and large salad spinners.

It does have a lid for the whole salad spinner for storage but the lid only fits the large salad spinner. It would have been much nicer to have included 2 lids for the salad spinner, one for the larger spinner and one for the smaller spinner. Then the kit would have been fully compatible with both spinners.

Overall everything looks fine and as though its made well but since I bought this as a gift I haven't used it. But my recipient will have an extra lid handy for miscellaneous things. :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Accessories to Have
I love my salad spinner and when I saw this set, I thought that it was a useless ploy to get more money. However, when I decided to buy it, I was rather surprised. The set itself is of the same quality as all of my other OXO products. The set fits both the mini salad spinner and the large salad spinner, so you don't have to worry about getting the right set.

I like the idea of the storage lids, but I don't use them often.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must if you have the large salad spinner!
This set is the ultimate addition to, in my opinion, the best greens dryer system on the market. The smaller bowl does work very well inside the large spinner, and I have also found, for those of you that also own the smaller OXO spinner, that the bowl fits like a glove, thus avoiding the additional bouncing around that does occur in the larger. A must when washing and drying delicate berries.

The plastic knife is a must when cutting greens, as to avoid those nasty "rust" spots that do crop up when slicing with a metal blade, thus extending the life of your salad for a day or so.

Add the lids, and you have the perfect short-term storage system.

Bravo, OXO!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for cleaning herbs!
If you have the OXO salad spinner, then add this accessory kit. I found it to be wonderful in washing herbs. I love my herb garden and try to use them in as many way I can. But I want them clean and dry when I use them.
Also, the knife does not cause your lettuce to darken. And it REALLY cuts!
The lid for the salad spinner is nice to use after spinning more then you right now need lettuce. Put the cover over the clear plastic bowl and put it in the frig for later!

5-0 out of 5 stars Increases the usefulness of the original salad spinner.
This accessory set has really increased the usefulness of my salad spinner. I always thought the original spinner should have come with a lid to store salad right in the big bowl, saving time & dish washing. Now I have a lid for the big bowl, plus a smaller bowl & lid that is perfect to wash & store berries or fresh herbs. There is also a large plastic knife that works well for cutting salad greens into bite sized pieces. I find that I'm using my salad spinner far more frequently since purchasing the accessory set. ...
