Before we move on to telling you about our experience with this salad spinner, let us discuss what is a salad spinner, why do you need one at home and what does it do?
A salad spinner or a salad tosser is a handy kitchen tool that helps remove the excess water from washed greens. Usually, when we wash leafy vegetables like spinach, lettuce, kale, etc for salads, a lot of water hides between the creases of the leaves which further reduces the flavor of the salad. A salad spinner will help salad dressings stick to the leaves and veggies nicely and give you a flavorful salad.
Price and packaging – This plastic Ikea TOKIG Salad Spinner is priced at Rs 299/-. Ikea does not deliver pan India right now, but if you are within their delivery area, then you can order directly.
Our review – Very often, we feel that plastic kitchen tools aren’t sturdy or properly finished. Thankfully, this wasn’t the case with the Ikea TOKIG salad spinner. This is an aesthetically designed, solid salad spinner. The quality and finish of the spinner look premium.
Like most salad spinners available in the market, the Ikea TOKIG salad spinner also has a plastic body. It has a strainer and a lid that helps with the drying process.
The colander is where you put your salad leaves for being washed and strained. You then close the lid, which has a toggle to create a centrifugal action. The basket inside rotates with the help of this, and the spinning action throws out the excess water, leaving your salad leaves dry and ready to be doused in dressing.
This Tokig Salad Spinner by Ikea works well. The body is sturdy and the anti-slip base keeps the spinner in place. The circular motion is smooth and friction-free. The water was taken out effectively, and the leaves came out dry.
We recommend this product to everyone who likes tossing up a salad at home every now and then.
