This is a good product and evolution of an old product. Only reason for -1 star is the string will eventually wear out and fail like our last one did. A paracord type string would be better.
We own and have tried some of the top Salad Spinners. We recently read a friends recipe and they mentioned a Zyliss Salad Spinner. We immediately went on line to see what the reviews were and tried to purchase the Zyliss Easy Spin 2 Stainless Steel Salad Spinner only to find they were not available at that moment. We signed up for when available and when we were notified we purchased our own. We are very happy with all aspects of the spinner and when you get yours you will see what others are talking about.
