It’s quite possible OXO will be mentioned in my eulogy. They’re so engrained in my every day life. And I do love them and their products so much.

They sent me their salad spinner a few months back and it will, of course, be included in the how-did-I-live-without-this-item-for-so-long? list. It’s awesome. And lately, with the hot summer temps, it’s been used a lot.

You must have one. It not only cleans lettuce, but it’s fun to use :D

Now’s your chance to win one, thanks to OXO for honoring my request. I didn’t even have to beg. They rock. (Side note: I am not beyond begging for OXO stuff.)

The Giveaway
2 (two) lucky readers (1 from the blog and 1 from Facebook) have a chance to win a salad spinner. (U.S. residents only. Color may vary.)

There are three ways to enter: (1) leave a comment on the blog (2) go “like” us on Facebook or (3) Already a fan? Just leave a comment on The Wall.

Want to increase your chances? You can leave a comment here and on Facebook.

The drawing closes this Saturday, July 16th at 8pm EST.

Like Paul’s shirt? It’s one of our favorites. We got it from Snorg Tees. Click here to get one of your own.

UPDATE on July 17th:
Well, it will come as no surprise that it was steep competition this time around…everyone fighting over an OXO product. Naturally :D There were over 150 entries. And I need to find a better way to import y’all into’s system, because my fingers are tired from typing!

But onto the important news. Our two lovely winners are Wendy Jo (blog) and Julie Hoak (FaceBook.) Congratulations ladies! Thanks for playing. I sure hope you stick around and join in on our conversations. Contact me with your snail mail to claim your prize.

Here’s to OXO and clean, dry lettuce!

My OXO salad spinner is a staple in my kitchen!!! Cannot live without it. I have impressed by mom so much with it, using it not only to spin salad, but berries, tomatoes, and other freshly washed produce, that she just went out and had to get one for herself. Now there is only soggy salad in my mother-in-law’s house!!! I’ve told her about your product, and would love to give it a try for herself, but just hasn’t gotten around to purchasing yet. So, this entry will hopefully let me win one for her, so we can all enjoy that crunchy delicious side dish every time.

Wendy Jo, here’s a tip: Put the lettuce in a pillow case before throwing it that basement floor model spinner! Of course I really think you’re just funnin’ about the piece by piece… aren’t you?


Pavel Lihani July 15, 2011 at 5:34 am

I’ve wanted an OXO salad spinner (and a bunch of their other products) since I saw Alton Brown use it on Good Eats. I am disappointed, however, that OXO products are manufactured in China rather than the U.S. But if I won one, it wouldn’t be my choice not to buy American.


Roxie Moreland July 14, 2011 at 8:20 pm

I love OXO products. They all rock but I would especially love a Salad Spinner.


Mary T. July 14, 2011 at 8:02 pm

I really enjoyed the video on the OXO salad spinner! Would love to win it. I have been a big fan of OXO products ever since I had carpal tunnel problems and they made my life so much easier. Anybody out there w/ elderly parents who are hard to buy presents for? Here’s a hint: a gift basket full of OXO products is a guaranteed hit! Lots of things to make their lives easier, too. (We like Snorg Tees too, btw!)


Meghan July 14, 2011 at 8:01 pm

I’d love one of these. OXO rocks but I’ve never owned a salad spinner before. Sounds like fun!


Vicki Bensinger July 14, 2011 at 7:04 pm

I would love to win this. I have a very old one that’s more like a crank, not cool and fun like this one. Then if I win this I can turn the old one into a Spin Art container. Remember Spin Art? Great Op Art in just seconds. The kids love it and quite frankly so do I. I hope I win. It will be nice to pump the water right out of my lettuce and leave it to OXO to make the very best!


Annette Gonzalez July 14, 2011 at 2:57 pm

I just wanted to comment that I love OXO products(all of them). I’ve purchased several hand-held products and love the results I get from them. OXO has made my life much easier. I don’t know how I ever managed before without them. Thank you OXO.

I love to cook for my family (3 children, their spouses, 5 grandchildren) and would love to win the OXO Salad Spinner. I know it would make my time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable.


Stephanie Sherman July 14, 2011 at 12:25 pm

Pretty cool. I have never used a salad spinner in my life. Always wet lettuce for me!


Nancy Farmer July 14, 2011 at 11:30 am

I need an OXO salad spinner!


Alyssa July 14, 2011 at 11:28 am

Over the last two years, I’ve been helping my boyfriend stock up his place with kitchen essentials. Definitely on my list are the Salad Spinner and mandolin. This would be a GREAT addition to his OXO collection! :)


salvor July 14, 2011 at 11:26 am

OXO is my big helper!


Jenne July 14, 2011 at 7:08 am

Used to have a salad spinner years ago. It broke though :( Love the tool!


sk July 14, 2011 at 6:27 am

Definitely in my top 5 must have kitchen tool list!!


Alyssa Reinke July 14, 2011 at 4:39 am

I’m leaving a comment so I can be entered in the contest, salad spinner, yay clean lettuce! :)


Leroy July 13, 2011 at 10:33 pm

Great video. I gave OXO products for Christmas last year and everyone loved them. I have several of their products myself, but not the spinner. I really could use something to was my socks and small, greasy tools and connectors


TK July 13, 2011 at 10:15 pm

yay! OXO rocks and I really love salads too!


elizabeth laster July 13, 2011 at 10:01 pm

Deb Jacobs July 13, 2011 at 6:43 pm

I would love to win! I a new Facebook fan as Deb Jacobs & a new twitter follower as @debralu. Thanks for the chance!


Karyl Larson July 13, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Love the OXO salad spinner! I just bought one for each of my sons, but didn’t get one for myself. If I don’t win one:( , then I’ll probably have to buy another to replace my old Zyliss that works on a string pull and requires two hands.


Chef Stacy LaRoche July 13, 2011 at 4:46 pm

Great site. You have inspired me to work harder on my own site! And yeah – OXO is the best. I always recommend their products and I use them my self. I have arthritis and OXO allows me to keep doing what I love.


danielle t July 13, 2011 at 4:14 pm

Love OXO products!! Fingers crossed I win!


Heather July 13, 2011 at 4:03 pm

Love OXO too and need a new spinner!


Dorothy Troller July 13, 2011 at 3:52 pm

What a useful and quality product. Would love to win one.
I enjoy your site and learning about new products.


Kathy Sheaffer July 13, 2011 at 3:20 pm

Thank you for a quality line of products.


Debbie Creed July 13, 2011 at 3:06 pm

I need one of these bad pleeezzzzzzzzzz!! Would like the stainless steel one!


Betty Lim July 13, 2011 at 2:53 pm

I love OXO! This salad spinner looks so much easier to use than others I’ve seen. This product would definately make me want to eat more salads! I hope I win! THANKS!


Wendy Jo July 13, 2011 at 2:49 pm

Wait a minute. I’ve been bending over the side of that huge mechanical gentle cycle spinner in my apartment building basement for the last few years. It’s been a pain in the butt pulling the lettuce out piece by piece off the sides of that huge drum. Who knew OXO made a counter top version I could keep in my kitchen. Thanks for the video. I really need to get one of these.


Kathleen Maynor July 13, 2011 at 2:49 pm

The video reminds me of me and my husband. I can see him, trying to dry his socks or underwear in the spinner, and me having to take the spinner and hide it. *lol*


Niv Mani July 13, 2011 at 2:43 pm

Been an OXOphile for the past 15 yrs, still going strong!


kimberly masseau July 13, 2011 at 2:34 pm

This is something I would LOVE to add to my kitchen. My daughter and I have decided it’s time to really get serious about eating healthier and we love salads. Being the conservative I am……I hate using paper products and frown upon using paper towels to dry our leafy greens. My daughter, however isn’t fond of my “shake, shake, shake method” to get the water from the greens. A salad spinner would be an AWESOME win!! Thank you for the wonderful opportunity!!
