Customer questions about this product
- What is the purpose of a salad spinner?
- Salad spinners are meant to remove the excess water left behind due to washing, but they do not completely leave the lettuce bone dry. Spinners will remove the extra moisture from the lettuce so the product is not dripping wet to prevent it from becoming soggy. After spinning, lettuce should be transferred to a perforated pan, and left to finishing draining in the refrigerator. Since lettuce is a plant, it does not do well when it’s dry, and therefore, needs some moisture.
Heavy-duty construction makes this 5
gallon salad spinner a must-have for restaurant use. Whenever salad is served, the highest cost item is the dressing! By using one of our commercial salad spinners, dressing "clings" to the lettuce. This not only cuts down on the amount of dressing used but also makes for better presentation.
What sets this salad spinner apart from the others? This 5 gallon lettuce spinner incorporates a patented brake system. While using a lettuce dryer, it is typical for the user to force the spinning handle to a quick stop. While this practice does save some time, it is also very stressful to the gear system in the salad dryer. Now you can simply press the large, rectangular button right on top to quickly and easily bring the spinner to a stop.
This innovative design feature will greatly reduce worn gears. This salad spinner's sealed gearbox provides a sanitary environment while the large, 5 gallon capacity accommodates 5-6 heads of lettuce. This commercial salad spinner is equipped with convenient side handles for quick and safe transportation.
The crank grip handle has finger grips to minimize operator fatigue and is made of tough, corrosion resistant chrome plated brass. The handle may spin clockwise or counter clockwise. No assembly is required. This product is covered by a 6 month manufacturer's warranty.

Great Item! We have used this spinner for years and it finally broke. We Reordered the exact same item because we liked it so much!
Natalie Q. Posted on 01/19/2015
Expensive but worth it, instead to trash money because of the wet lettuce and spinach , buy this and dry them very easy and quickly
Rodolphe V. from crepe Posted on 01/15/2015
I REALLY RECOMMEND YOU THIS DRYER, I USE IT FOR DRY LETTUCE. THE PLASTIC THAT ITS MADE IS VERY RESISTANT AND HYGIENIC. IF YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY BUY IT.
Sergio A. from UVAVERDE Posted on 12/06/2014
important if you have to wash a case of spinach! works great, though you have to get the hang of working with it in the sink(drains out of a hole)
Patrick E. Posted on 11/29/2014
This is a high quality salad spinner. I wish the price was a little lower but it makes quick work when rinsing off romaine lettuce crowns for our sandwich station.
Ryan G. Posted on 09/14/2014
It seems a little bit expensive for what you get, and doesn't do a perfect job of eliminating water, but if you're intent on fresh chopped romaine or fresh herbs, this tool is a must.
Steven L. from Fried & Fabulous Posted on 06/23/2014
Great salad spinner for restaurants that make a lot of salads! Works very well, just make sure you have the lettuce evenly distributed or it will shake pretty violently. Works best with two people. (one holding the bin and the other cranking it)
Maureen B. from One Dish Cuisine Posted on 06/12/2014
As a CSA farmer I handle a LOT of salad greens and removing excess water after hydrocooling/washing greens is really challenging. This spinner is perfect for our mid-size vegetable farm. We use it for all of our salad mixes and braising mixes. It is not big enough or gentle enough to manage whole heads of lettuce, but it is quick and easy for loose leaf mixes. An added bonus: we are currently in the process of becoming GAP certified (a farm food safety certification that makes it easier for small farmers to work with local schools, hospitals, etc.) and the GAP auditors pay very close attention to greens handling, as greens are a particularly high risk crop in terms of food born illness. This spinner is easy to sanitize and (obviously) intended for food handling, unlike the make shift modified washing machines and/or mesh bags a lot of small farms use for greens.
Andrea C. from Wintergreen Farm Posted on 06/07/2014
The easiest way to wash your lettuce and greens. Everyone should own one of these. Stores great and simple and light. Quality is very good.
Clint F. from Uri's Landing Posted on 03/26/2014
So far I have been very happy with this spinner. I previously used the orange one that everyone has, but I like this better. Seems like more solid construction, and the brake is a great idea.
Joshua B. from The People's Pint Posted on 03/22/2014
If you are looking for a heavy duty salad spinner this is the one. A great buy for the price I've worked with this model for 5yrs and never had a problem.
Matthew T. Posted on 02/12/2014
This industrial size salad spinner allows us to make large batches of salad mix quickly and efficiently. It always comes apart and washes easily after each use.
Manager from Isaacs - Ephrata Posted on 01/26/2014
This salad spinner makes greens prep a breeze. The heavy duty construction is a great value. The drain hose is a handy feature as well as the brake. The price is the best by far with lightning fast shipping. Thanks!
Leann H. from Levee Run Farm Posted on 01/23/2014
This 5 gallon salad spinner is worth every penny! It is very durable and works very smoothly. I love the fact that there is a brake. Works great, highly recommended!
Thomas B. from Jennifer Posted on 10/04/2013
A great buy for an item every kitchen needs. We love our and use it for numerous applications. It is very sturdy and love the hose.
Christopher D. from Ckd Restaurants, llc. kitchen Posted on 06/18/2013
This is a really great salad spinner. It's gentle on the leaves and is a really easy to clean machine. Not many moving parts to break or lose either. Great buy
Kristy F. from salt yard Posted on 06/10/2013
This 5 gallon plastic salad spinner/dryer with brake is a large container that will hold about 5 or 6 heads of lettuce easily. The brake is a bonus.
Alvin T. from Mary B's Southern Kitchen Posted on 05/05/2013
Great little spinner. This salad spinner has held up to high volume abuse, we serve over 600 meals a day 365. We spin all of our lettuce, the break helps maintain efficiency, no more waiting for the drum to slow down.
John e. from Aston Gardens Posted on 04/27/2013
Every kitchen must have one of these. It is very easy to fill with lots of fresh greens for quick and easy cleaning. Good for washing leeks and swiss chard too.
Rick M. Posted on 04/03/2013
This spinner is excellent for the chain i am in. We do prep every morning and this saves me so much time from the small spinner we used to have. The hose is a nice addition as well.
Brandon M. Posted on 01/16/2013
Working on banquets we have large parties getting salads all the time. This makes washing all the lettuce super fast and super easy. Its perfect.
Aaron H. Posted on 12/14/2012
This unit works great spinning the water out of salads. We used to use a perforated tub and allow gravity to remove water. This works much better and is well worth the investment.
Randall S. from Sbarro Pizzeria Posted on 11/04/2012
Absolutely amazing. It's not cheap, but when you break it down, you're saving so much on your labor! I have a restaurant that is totally based on what foods are local and seasonal, so when we get a lot of produce in all at once, processing and cleaning times are cut by 75% with this bad boy!
Jake S. Posted on 07/17/2012
Wow these are so conveient and they work amazingly. They save so much time and energy. They dry your greens in a matter of seconds.
Tom M. Posted on 03/30/2012
first time i used one of these, i was surprise how much strength you have to put into just rotating to make the lettuce dry
Angel C. Posted on 12/15/2011

I love my salad spinner! It saves me lots of money and gives me crisp, dry lettuce to serve my customers. Also, easy to clean.

This is the best money I spent on anything for my restaurant. This spinner dries the lettuce really nice and helps with spoilage. You won't be sorry for purchasing this item.
