    ETL Sanitation

    This item meets the sanitation standards imposed by the ETL, a division of the Intertek Group.

Brake System

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.

Heavy-Duty Construction

The heavy-duty plastic construction with no assembly required accommodates 5-6 heads of lettuce, making it a must-have for restaurant use. Plus, this spinner includes a sealed gearbox for more sanitary conditions.

Crank Handle

The rust-resistant 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.

Easy to Carry

This commercial salad spinner is equipped with convenient side handles for quick and safe transportation from the storage area to the prep station and then to your dishwashing area.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

What is the purpose of a salad spinner?
Salad spinners are meant to remove excess water from lettuce left behind from washing. Spinners remove extra moisture to prevent your lettuce from becoming soggy, but they do not leave lettuce bone dry. After spinning, lettuce should be transferred to a perforated pan, and left to finishing draining in the refrigerator.

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.

We've tried a few brands of salad spinner and this one seems to last the longer. The gears strip out very quickly in other models. The salad spinner is a must have for any restaurant that cuts its lettuce fresh. This gets all the water off which not only makes the lettuce crisper but helps extend the shelf life.

I had about 7 years of daily use out of this before it went bad. Think I got my moneys worth. Definitely recommend and can put enough salad in there to make at least ten entree salads.

Harry K. from Georgias Restaurant on 06/06/2018

We put 2 -3 cases of chopped romaine lettuce through this every day. It works wonders. I've tried different brands, but this one lasts longer and works better. I am finally purchasing a new spinner a year and a half since my last one. If anyone's doing the math, that's well over 1,00 cases of romaine lettuce that this spinner has handled before needing to be replaced. I highly recommend it for anyone doing large quantities of salad. Spend the few extra bucks. It's worth it.

Dave E. from Richardson Farms on 12/08/2020

Perfect for a large volume of lettuce. It dries it evenly and to ones liking. Easy to assemble. I highly recommend this item for anyone in the kitchen business!

Kimberly S. from Yumthing Else on 07/19/2020

Very strong salad dryer I always have been buying their driers It dries very good and it’s all easy to use for a business Love it

Ameer A. from Le Kabob 2 on 01/05/2020

I don't use a salad spinner occasionally. It that once in a week item I use in my catering. I use it for lettuce. Some of my clients request it, and I make the salad for them with this. It is good for homeowner. But the inconvenience of putting it in a drain or sink makes it hard for me to use. A caterers sink is ALWAYS being used nonstop. It just doesnt cut it for me. And you will need a large enough sink.

David M. from Sova on 12/27/2019

Have not been happy with this purchase. We used it once and it broke. My chef tried to fix it and it lasted about another week. Now its in the trash.

I bought this monster salad spinner mainly to dry lettuce mix for the farmers market. Though I no longer sell lettuce mix, the spinner still comes in handy for drying other produce items after washing. I use it for drying hot peppers or any other light weight fresh produce. The spinner is solidly constructed and works well, but is a little unwieldy when full loaded. I usually need to wedge it between my feet to keep if from running away from me. Also, the drain hose at the bottom tends to come loose, so I just added a zip tie to keep the hose in place. With these shortcomings in mind, I still think this spinner is a good value if you have a large volume of lettuce to dry.

Stephen L. from SD Farm on 09/14/2019

A necessity in any kitchen serving large quantities of salads, something we do daily. We use this every day and have never had an issue with the brakes or any part of it.

Julia B. from California Fresh Catering on 07/16/2018

This thing is great, you can fit a ton of greens in it at once. It saves a ton of time getting rinsed lettuce dry and is made really well.

Sean T. on 03/28/2018

Who wants a salad that tastes like water. Holds a lot of lettuce at once, and lets you spin it easily. We have had good luck with these.

Sherman K. on 12/18/2017

The 5 Gallon Plastic Salad Spinner / Dryer with Brake is the best salad spinner on the market. I've used many and the chefmaster is the best. The gears hold up well! USE THE BRAKE

Jacob D. from The Heritage on 04/27/2017

As our small sandwich shop has grown, we find our lunch crowd constantly expanding. The amount of lettuce we go through in a day has become ridiculous, and this spinner has been a miracle for us! Holds a ton of lettuce(or other fresh produce), really easy to operate, and cleaning is a quick and painless process.

Corner G. on 02/19/2017

if you need to wash greens in large quantities, this giant salad spinner can't be beat. it's a pretty standard fixture in most big volume kitchens and with good reason. it's very sturdy and reliable.

giant salad spinner will hold enough greens for one hundred salads. The drain tube is long enough to rest it on a table next to a sink even if you don't have a large drainboard.

Ronald S. from Homegrown Eats on 12/09/2016

Top of the line salad dryer. The brake is so very useful. And you can fit a very large amount of produce in it with ease.

Stella P. on 09/12/2016

This salad spinner fits 3 heads of lettuce easily! It dries the lettuce to perfection in no time! We bought a similar salad spinner from another site but it just could not get the lettuce as dry as we needed. I am so happy we bought this spinner. Money well spent!

Stephen B. from Pizza Pro on 07/08/2016

This is a workhorse for processing high volumes of greens. I looked at other models elsewhere that were 4x the cost - don't waste your money. I have used mine for 3 years and it is still going strong.

Susan C. from Hope Mountain Farm on 04/26/2016

You could easily fit 5 + pre-washed collard bags in the 5 Gallon Plastic Salad Spinner / Dryer with Brake. It's so nice to do big batches so you can cook in bulk.
