VEGGIE is a hand-held salad spinner and colander composed of two parts. To assemble it, slide the transparent half to fit the opaque half. Then unplug the handle and rotate the two parts to form an open colander. Place the vegetables in the holder, then rotate back to close and lock the spinner. Finally, rinse with water through the handle and twist back-and-forth to drain. When all the water is drained, open to empty the spinner of the now-dried vegetables. VEGGIE is ideal for the washing and drying of vegetables, herbs, fruits or legumes by using centrifugal force. It is easy to assemble and it can also be used like a colander. A hole through the handle allows the entire tool to be hung up when not in use.
