The Oxo Steel salad spinner combines the ultimate function of the Oxo patented pump and brake with the beauty and elegance of a stainless steel serving bowl. To operate, press the soft pump and the basket will start to spin. By pressing the brake button, the basket will stop spinning so you will be able to unload. The salad spinner has a clear lid that lets you see inside while you spin salad and can be taken off for easy cleaning. The stainless steel spinner has a non-slip base to ensure it will stand steady on your countertop. The bowl can also be used to serve salad. The bowl capacity is 6.25 quarts and the salad spinner has a diameter of 10.5" / 27cm.
