    Kids like the salad spinner, but I've never sold one. Of course, I only bring it to fairs, so that may be why.

    I agree! The skillet is very useful when doing the Beef Power Cooking shows...you can brown over 5lbs of beef at one time in it! It is one of my new favorites! :)

    You need to go onto CC and listen to the "master Seller' from the downloads!!!!!!!
    She will tell you all kinds of great things to do and say about the spinner. I have sold 16 since the first of the year, and all of them were to hosts. In other words they booked a show so they could get it at a discount!!!!!!!

    I would buy the 12" Skillet over the Salad Spinner. I find the spinner a bit unwieldy to bring to shows.

    Buy the Skillet over the Spinner.

    I have the Spinner, but rarely use it. But, I use the 12" Skillet all the time (and there is only 2 of us).

    That's a hard choice - I love love LOVE my salad spinner! I spin everything from my berries, veggies and salads, to ground beef and turkey! :D

    This alone makes my salad spinner valuable to me and many others.
    1. Wash berries in bowl with 3 cups water mixed with 1 cup
    white vinegar. Drain in colander & rinse under running water.
    2. Place berries in salad spinner lined with 3 layers of paper towels. Spin for 15 seconds or until berries are completely dry.
    3. Store berries in paper towel-lined sealable container, keeping lid slightly open to allow excess moisture to escape.

    According to Cook's Illustrated, cleaning with the vinegar solution and careful drying destroys bacteria and mold spores, extending the life of the berries.

    Love both, use the skillet more in my personal kitchen but sell the spinner when I use it at shows.
