5 Gallon Plastic Salad Spinner / Dryer with Brake

Item #: 599SD12

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.

    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

    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.

    Great solution for our sandwich shop, holds a ton of lettuce and cuts prep time in half

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Works great but way too big for our application. Be careful of the size you get. I wish we got the smaller version. This one takes too much space in storage and use. But if you go through a lot of salads, it would be perfect,

    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!

    Expensive but worth it, instead to trash money because of the wet lettuce and spinach , buy this and dry them very easy and quickly

    from UVAVERDE Posted on

    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)

    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.

    Posted on

    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.

    from Fried & Fabulous Posted on

    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)

    from One Dish Cuisine Posted on

    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.

    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.

    from Uri's Landing Posted on

    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.

    from The People's Pint Posted on

    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.

    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.

    from Isaacs - Ephrata Posted on

    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!

    from Levee Run Farm Posted on

    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!

    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.

    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

    from salt yard Posted on

    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.

    from Mary B's Southern Kitchen Posted on

    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.

    from Aston Gardens Posted on

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    from Sbarro Pizzeria Posted on

    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!

    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.

    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.
