Make washing and preparing your vegetables part of your everyday routine with OXO Monday 20 June 2011 PDF Print As the UK becomes more vigilant about washing and preparing vegetables in light of the recent E.Coli outbreak, many of us are turning towards our favourite kitchen gadgets to make light work of everyday cooking tasks. OXO’s universally-designed salad spinner will wash and dry leaves in next to no time. Whether a full head of romaine lettuce, pre-prepared bag or a juicy tomato, it pays to be extra careful. Simply wash your leaves in the removable plastic basket, which doubles as a colander, and add to the salad spinner to dry. OXO’s innovative pop-up handle allows you to spin with just one hand, while the non-slip base ensures that the spinner stays put on your work surface. A push button break mechanism brings the spinning to a quick halt. For those who like to snack on cucumbers or create a refreshing salad but have become slightly wary given the recent health scare, OXO’s Y peeler is ideal for removing a wafer thin layer of skin. With its trademark, soft-grip handle, OXO’s Y peeler quickly and efficiently peels all manner of vegetables, removing just enough skin to leave behind all the healthy vitamins and nutrients. Also available in the range is a serrated peeler for tackling soft fruits such as tomatoes and peaches. OXO’s UK Marketing Manager, Tracy Carroll, says: “We have all become much aware of our everyday food preparation practices given the recent health scare. With many of us busy juggling work and family lives, everyday tasks such as washing or peeling vegetables often fall by the way side, but now we are all becoming stricter in our regimes. Our salad spinner can wash and dry lettuce, tomatoes, even fruit and has been universally-designed so that it is easy to use for the largest spectrum of people, even those who have manual dexterities.“ Prices: Salad spinner: £25.53 Little salad & herb spinner: £18.38 Y peeler: £5.62 Serrated peeler: £5.62 Designed to make everyday living that little bit easier, the OXO Good Grips range offers over 200 stylish, yet practical tools for the home including kitchenware, organisational tools, bathroom and cleaning products.
