What’s The Point Of A Salad Spinner That Can’t Spin?

While shopping at Bed, Bath and Beyond, Avi noticed an OXO salad spinner on the “as-is” clearance rack. Those are great products, so he investigated further. The $29.99 item was marked down to half off, $14.98, and then to half off that amount, $7.48. What a deal! There was, however, a catch. The spinning mechanism is broken. That makes it more of a colander with a weird lid.

“At that point, it’s more of a plastic colander,” Avi wrote. “So how does it dry the salad? Does it gyrate? Or blow on it? Or do you just leave it in there with the lid off for a few hours until it’s dry?”

Maybe you have to provide your own turntable.
