Salad Spinners & Slaw Cutters
What Is a Commercial Salad Spinner?
A commercial salad spinner is the industrial version of a normal household salad spinner. Also known as a salad tosser, a commercial salad spinner is a kitchen tool used to wash and remove excess water from salad greens like lettuce or coleslaw.
An industrial salad spinner utilizes centrifugal force to help separate the water from the salad greens. It is important to thoroughly dry the leaves used in a salad because wet leaves will become limp and unappetizing. Also, dry salad greens will enable salad dressing, oil, or vinaigrette to coat the leaves well as opposed to wet salad greens.
A Brief History of the Restaurant Salad Spinner
The restaurant salad spinner's household equivalent traces its history in the early 1970s. Two patents by Jean Mantelet and Gilberte Fouineteau, French designers, were highly influential in the early development of the commercial salad spinner's design.
In 1974, particularly, a large manufacturing company introduced a crank-operated industrial salad spinner to America, but by that time other manufacturing companies focusing on the food-service and food-processing market were not that far behind with their own designs for a restaurant salad spinner. At that time, the industrial salad spinner sold favorably and—more importantly—demand was skyrocketing, both from households and food-service establishments. In fact, so high was the demand for salad spinners that stores at that time struggled to keep them in stock.
