Absolutely love it! I start by washing lettuce, parsley, cilantro, etc. in the "collander" basket and adding a lot of fresh water to the tub. I do this a couple of times and have nice clean greens. Then I remove all the water and spin it dry-ish. Saves time, cleans food, great results.

Once a week I make a huge batch of basic salad which includes 2-3 different kinds of lettuce, radishes , onions, red cabbage & sliced carrots. After everything has been washed and chopped, I use a salad spinner. The salad then goes in a zip-lock bag with paper towels which help absorb extra
moisture. The air is squeezed out.. When I'm ready for a salad I add what ever soft ingredients I need to fit my plan...avocado, cucumber, red & yellow peppers, cheese etc. The basic ingredients will stay fresh and crisp for at least a week. The best part though is having salad always ready.
Are You In Denial About Wheat? Switch to Rye & Feel Less Hungry
Dr Mark Hyman Says :We are ALL allergic to wheat with the reaction that it makes us fat. It contains a Super Starch -- amylopectin A that is super fattening. It also contains a form of Super Gluten that is super-inflammatory& It contains forms of a Super Drug that is super-addictive and makes you crave and eat more. Switch to Rye bread, the best kind of bread to use,as sugars in rye flour are absorbed into your bloodstream much more slowly
