Divide and conquer KitchenAid's new Salad and Fruit Spinner includes a large, clear plastic bowl, a white colander and a bright red lid and base. It dries more than 12 cups of greens at a time. The spinning mechanism is a plunger. What's the difference: With eight parts, this spinner has more pieces than any of the others. There are three removable dividers, to separate different types of produce. What we thought: The design is clever, and it effectively dried lettuce. But I couldn't remove the plunger, which made cleaning difficult, since this part is not supposed to be immersed in water. How much: About $32 at Kohl's and Target stores.
