Apart from the salad spinner, the winner is…Posted by Fiona Nevile in Cottage tales, Discoveries | 10 comments
Recently we bought a dinky little salad spinner from TKMaxx (Swiss – Zyliss, reduced from £20.00 to £7.99). A perfectly engineered addition to the kitchen. I have a horror of wet salad leaves but have always avoided those cumbersome salad spinners that take up loads of space and aren’t very efficient.
I’ve been through the gamut of most alternatives. Whirling like a dervish with the salad leaves in a clean tea towel. Air drying the salad leaves on the drainer beside the sink. Padding the leaves with kitchen roll. The tea towel option worked the best. But it was never quite enough.
When I spotted the mini Zyliss spinners, my heart jumped. I sped home to consult D.
“I’ve found a compact salad spinner that is operated with a ripcord and has a button marked Stop. Can I invest?”
D’s eyes lit up with the thought of dry salad leaves.
I wanted to put all the names of the people who left comments on last night’s post in the salad spinner and pull the cord hoping that the natural winner would float to the top of the pile.
Danny was indignant.
“Let’s independently choose the five best comments that make us feel good. And then compare notes.”
He raced upstairs to the Rat Room. Ten minutes later he reappeared with his list.
Two names – Michelle NZ and Ruthdigs appeared joint top of the aggregate points total. As Ruthdigs already owns the book, my copy will be slowly winging its way to New Zealand. We’ll find a worthy consolation prize for Ruthdigs.
Thank you everyone for leaving comments. Much appreciated as always.
