It seems that some kitchen gadgets and I do not get along. Take the humble lettuce spinner. I've broken one the second time I've used it. I've even lost one in my kitchen without so much as a blink of an eye. Where it went is anyone's guess. SO I'm quite hesitant to purchase another commercial product for this when a couple paper towels in the bottom of my T*pperware salad bowl and a couple on the top of the freshly washed salad greens, before snapping on one of those great lids, and shake up and down a few times. Open it up, remove the now wet towels and start dressing your greens. I've never broken down the price of a single sheet of toweling so I'm not sure at what point I'm past breaking even. Something to consider on a slow day.
