Simply press down on the soft, non-slip knob to dry herbs or salad greens. Stop the salad spinner by pressing on the brake button. A non-slip base ensures that it stays in place as you work. The basket doubles as a colander, and the lid comes apart for easy cleaning. For storage, the pump locks flat against the lid. The basket of almost 2 ½ quarts is perfect for a single serving. Dishwasher safe (top rack). New!
