Wash your vegetables and salad fixings and then dry them with this Choice 5 gallon salad spinner. This product is easy to use, and turning the convenient handle allows you to quickly dry your ingredients. Plus, this spinner has an attached hose that drains away water, preventing it from building up and re-soaking your food. Additionally, its large capacity can hold 5-6 heads of lettuce or a large amount of vegetables, so you can dry large quantities of food for your salad bar easily.

This salad spinner has saved us so much time compared to using a residential-sized spinner for the greens we harvest on our farm. We can easily load 1-2 pounds of greens at a time without overloading it. We have had to remove the top plate to reset the gears on the handle once when it stopped spinning. Also, the drainage tube isn't sealed to the bottom of the spinner, so water only funnels out of the tube when there is an excessive amount of water in the spinner, otherwise it just dribbles out of the hole into which the drainage tube fits. Overall, though, very worthwhile!

I'd probably give the product 3.5 stars. Its a little better than average but not great. It can be sort of dangerous and requires a lot of space and control to stabilize the spinner. It also doesn't dry lettuce as well as I would have liked. However, I do believe it is built to last.

Perfect for drying large amounts of lettuce. Great for high volume kitchens. Standard size for 5 gallons, easy to assemble, clean, and not too bulky.
Michele R. Posted on 01/12/2018
When you are dealing with a decent amount of salad greens, you do not want to be messing with anything smaller than this. it is very easy to use and wash.
Dawna B. from Rainbow Juices Posted on 01/08/2018
When you have a salad business, this is an instrument that cannot miss, in fact, we have several and are the soul of the business, super resistant, never fail. Colleagues always ask us where to get it.
Oscar E. from AMERMEX FROZEN PRD Posted on 10/26/2017
The spinner is a boon when large quantities are involved. The water drains out well just as long as the leaves are loosely packed, about 6-7 romaine heads at best. The downside, of course, is storing this bulky item.
Perinaz A. from http://www.spiceladle.com Posted on 10/16/2017
We used the spinner twice and the ball bearing fell out of the unit. This is not covered in parts and there is no warranty on this item. We missed the return window by two weeks and are out of luck. I would not recommend this unit as it did not hold up.
Tami S. from Rifle Senior Center Posted on 09/27/2017
This has made cleaning greens a lot easier for us. I'm not sure why I waited so long to buy it. The drain tube is unnecessary for us though as our sink is large enough to handle the whole thing.
Brian S. from A Dopo Sourdough Pizza Posted on 09/18/2017
Great spinner! We use it mostly for large quantities of herbs that need to be washed and dried for making pesto, chimichurri, and salsas. It's a breeze to clean up and the drain hose is a huge plus.
Emily E. from Quality Foods LLC Posted on 08/28/2017
We have a market garden. This made life so much easier in prepping our salad greens and saved us tons of time. This removed most water after washing (not completely dry) and we were told by a restaurant we sell to that the greens were dry enough to last a couple weeks in the fridge without going bad. Connecting the gear box to the lid was just a tad difficult as the parts seemed to not fit without a little force. Maybe that's by design. But this is now invaluable to us in our garden greens.

Fernando B. from Figata Posted on 07/26/2017
I have bought 2 of these - one for each restaurant. They are sturdy and work well. The gears have yet to strip, which is a problem I have had with other brands that are more expensive.
Carolyn J. Posted on 07/25/2017
Works great for rinsing and drying lettuce for salads, can fit quite a bit inside. The drain hose works well, just set the spinner next to the sink and route the drain line into the sink. Very easy to use!
Michael N. from Perry's Pizza Posted on 05/21/2017
I tried to use this for something other than spinning lettuce but it did not work for me. The holes in the strainer part a quite big so it may not work if you're trying to clean small particles.
Grace N. from Mitla Tortilleria Posted on 05/18/2017
I never heard of this brand until it was Recomended in this website. Glad we got it, it works just fine even with our heavy usage.
Frank F. from Fire Fin Poke Posted on 03/28/2017
Not only is this item actually a lot of fun to use but it's a functional time saver for our store. So happy I found this salad spinner

Bring your salad spinning to an easy stop with the 2.5 Gallon Plastic Salad Spinner/Dryer with Brake. While you can stop your manual salad spinner on your own, it can cause stress on the salad dryer's gear system. By simply pressing the brake button on top of the spinner, you can quickly and easily bring it to a stop. The 2.5 gallon capacity of the spinner can hold 2-3 heads of lettuce at a time so you can dry your greens without removing any necessary moisture.

Good salad spinner. Dries lettuce quickly but does take a bit of effort and can only fit about one large head of lettuce at a time if you want it to dry properly
Jason W. from Osterville Village Cafe Posted on 03/28/2013
This thing is the best! We put up with cheap household type salad spinners, breaking every few months, then I came across this one from the Webstaurant. You can rinse lettuce and spinach in no time. It's easy to cleanup too!
Phil R. from Oak Hill Bulk Foods, Inc. Posted on 04/21/2012
Great salad spinner! Bright color is sure to keep employees aware of it! Good for all types of salad greens! Makes washing and cleaning them a breeze!
Eric K. Posted on 06/19/2011
Dry 5-6 heads of lettuce at one time with the 5 Gallon Plastic Salad Spinner/Dryer with Brake. Just like the 2.5 gallon model, this spinner comes equipped with a brake that prevents possible damage to the spinner’s gear system. The sealed gearbox provides salad greens a sanitary environment to be dried in, compared to hand drying where germs are more prevalent. The spinner is made from a heavy-duty plastic and is equipped with side handles that make transportation convenient and safe.

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 R. Posted 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
Sieger B. from The Heritage Posted on 04/27/2017
The best salad spinner ever. The gears are heavy duty and hold up better than other spinners we've used. Easy to clean and store. Use the brake though. Its what its there for
Sieger B. from The Heritage Posted 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. Posted 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.
Mark N. Posted on 01/07/2017
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 Posted 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.
Anthony P. Posted 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 Posted 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 Posted 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.
Julia W. from jwhitten31 on Youtube Posted on 01/28/2016
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,
Ali A. from OPC Posted on 06/09/2015
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.
Ricki 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
Nick L. 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.
Eric K. 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
ive used several different salad spinners over the years and i must say this spinner is a great buy great price and holds up very well highly recomended!!
Randall H. from Randys family restaurant Posted on 09/10/2011
Works great so far. Just need to train employees to keep an I on the gears to make sure everything is lined up. Good Size.
Rebecca P. Posted on 09/07/2011

Eric K. Posted on 06/19/2011
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.
Traci A. from Specialty Catering Posted on 11/08/2010
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.
Joann C. from Dreamz Cafe & Gelato Posted on 03/26/2010
Heavy duty and great for doing whole cases of greens. Stores easy and makes drying times quick and efficient. Kind of fun to use too.
Monica S. Posted on 09/18/2009

Keep large amounts of produce fresh in the Rubbermaid GreensKeeper 32 gallon vegetable crisper.

In addition to washing food, you can also use a GreensKeeper crisper to store large quantities of food and keep it fresh.

For a rubbermaid product, I must say, I am disappointed. The spout broke within the first week and difficulty needed to remove one container from the other was way more than expected. Upside: 8 months later they're still making great garbage cans.
Argyris D. from BelAIre Diner Posted on 07/30/2013
This is a great and time saving product. its great if you go through a lot of salad greens. You can wash your greens and have them ready to go in this container that you can wheel right into the walk in. its great!
