When one has a small kitchen, one wants as little clutter as possible. This can be hard to do with so much necessary kitchen equipment, and when we find something that's practical and compact, we jump on it. The Spin N' Stor salad spinner/storage bag is one such example.
The Spin N' Stor is a large plastic bag with a pocket drain at the bottom. Simply wash greens or herbs, place in the bag, and spin in the air like a propeller. The water collects in the pocket and simply pours away from the greens. After the water has been removed, the greens can stay in the bag and be stored in the crisper drawer. The bag helps greens stay fresher for a longer time.
The bag flattens out and folds into a thin square, making it a snap to store in a drawer.
