Squash your salad spinner

Collapsible salad spinner helps you clean your greens while saving space

Sur la table
A challenge of any kitchen, especially those that belong to gadget enthusiasts, is finding the space to store everything. For many people, the only way around this obstacle is to limit the number of times they indulge themselves in buying the latest and greatest kitchen tools. But in some cases, some clever modifications allow us to stock up on gadgets without worrying about running out of space.

This Collapsible Salad Spinner on Sur la table's Web site solves the space issue by using a patented design that allows the bowl to be collapsed to one third of its original size. It's a good thing, too, because a salad spinner is a worthy addition to any chef's arsenal, and many standard models do not stack with other bowls easily, or at best stack awkwardly. This spinner also uses the pull-cord method to spin your greens, much easier than the handle-crank method.

The Collapsible Salad Spinner is available through Sur la table on its Web site. You can snag one for just under $30.
