I had an email arrive in my box a couple of weeks back from a company by the name of Dexas. I have never done a sponsored post but in this case I decided to. I don’t know why, maybe it is just time but instead of me reviewing a product I thought I would just post the email I sent back to Dexas with my likes and concerns for the product.
But time passes and Jeff who sent me the original email, who is very nice and good people usually don’t stay at bad companies, sends me another email just checking in or code for, nudge nudge is the post getting close to being done. Me being me, his second letter sits in my inbox for some time. I finally get around to actually photographing the spinner but by now I have used it a lot more. After I did my initial testing I had some clear ideas, even sent Jeff a letter with my concerns but now I have become comfortable with the spinner and I have changed my mind on several issues. First here is my letter to Jeff (take note, I removed a portion of the letter about a cutting board, not because it was bad or a bad product but because they didn’t ask me to test it but sent it along for my thoughts. It is a great product too.)
Thanks for the follow-up. I did receive the spinner and the cutting board. It came at the perfect time since all my fall greens from the garden are just getting really good.
I have put the salad spinner to the test and really like a lot of things about it, the gearing in the top and the fan are fantastic, really fantastic, and the offset and size of the handle is perfect. It is much like a honey extractor I have and feels just as solid. It does a great job of cleaning and drying greens of all types.
The spinner really is a nice product but I would be remiss in my testing if I didn’t mention a couple of things. I really like the way the water runs out the open bottom but one of the things I really like about other salad spinners is the ability to store greens in the fridge right in the spinner. This may seem trivial but for some reason I have found spinners as a storage unit really helps to extend the shelf life of salad and greens. Are there any plans to make the spinner available with an optional, I’ll say, drip bowl? I also mention this because I sometimes have a sink full of dishes when I get to the point in my prep that I want to clean greens I have to clean the sink out. Don’t get me wrong you have a great product and these are just a few of my thoughts.
Anyway, I like the quality and durability of your products and I will look for them in stores around our area. I still plan to write a post for my blog and will do so soon. Thanks so much.
So what did I change my mind about. Well, after using it and getting used to storing the greens in a plastic bag instead of the spinner I realized how much fridge space spinners of all kinds actually use. Now the fridge is far less crowded, a definite plus.
In all seriousness this thing is built like a tank and works great!.
