Welcome to the water-fueled salad-spinner cake box. Here's a muscle-free salad spinner that works from the power of a sink faucet and rotates your salad greens faster than the manual version no matter how much muscle you put into it. Rick Crammond based his spinner on a design invented by Nikola Tesla using his CD Turbine.

Using your faucet or garden hose, you can spin your greens at 1,000 rpm, giving you superbly dry greens in seconds.
