New in the Market: Spin ‘n Stor Reusable Salad Spinning Bags

We enjoy trying new kitchen gadgets.  Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

We honestly did not think this product would work but we were pleasantly surprised. Spin ‘n Stor is a reusable plastic bag that spins salads and herbs dry and stores them for use. The plastic bag which is approximately 12 X18 inches is large enough for a head of Romaine lettuce or 2 bunches of parsley. You simply rinse the salad or herbs, place them in the bag, hold the top closed and spin the bag 10 to 12 times. The water collects in a specially designed reservoir on the side and bottom of the bag. It is easy to drain. The salad is ready to use or the company suggests that you “fluff” it in the bag and store it for future use.

After use, the bag should be rinsed and it dried quickly but the reservoir took longer to dry. This would concern us, except the company suggests that the bags should only be used 8 to 10 times and then discarded. Twelve bags cost $11.75. This is a space-saving option to the traditional bulky salad spinner and would be ideal for camping or traveling by motorcoach or boat.
