Below I have compared the four most popular spinners (SpinnerChief, TBS, SpinRewriter, and WordAi) based on features they provide for the price. I have not taken into account the quality of their spinning content results.
For more information about WordAi, you can check the WordAi review and detailed Spin Rewriter vs WordAi test comparison. If you need a WordPress article rewriter & auto spinner plugin, you can check my post where I have reviewed one interesting plugin which claims to provide readable results.
After spending 25 hours on research, interviewing authors of salad-centered cookbooks, comparing 31 models, and testing eight side by side, we recommend the OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner. Its design is sturdier and more convenient to use than any other model we tested, with a wide, flat base and push-button brake. Its unique pump spinner was the easiest to operate, drying both hardy greens and more delicate parsley without bruising. The crystal-clear plastic bowl is big enough to soak a large head of lettuce, but still one of the most compact to store.
For our original guide, we soaked and spun one 10-ounce bag of adult spinach in each spinner six times. We weighed the spinach dry, after soaking, after three spins, and after six. Additionally, we washed and spun a pint of raspberries, checking for any bruising, as well as a bundle of dill to see which spinner baskets were most difficult to clean. Wobbliness and ease of use were also evaluated.
In 2015 we tested in two rounds, skipping the berry test since most people probably just use a colander. We chose to use mixed greens instead of spinach to see how spinners dried leaves of various textures and sizes. After weighing out 10 ounces of dry greens, we soaked them for two minutes, then weighed them after soaking, after three spins, and after six spins, braking to stop spinning when possible. Ease of use, stability, and ease of cleaning were our top criteria. Next, we repeated the procedure with parsley, a still delicate but more commonly used herb, checking for bruising and dryness as well.
Our only complaint is one that would probably plague any salad spinner. The two-part lid and colander can get a little dingy looking over time. A run through the dishwasher would likely do a better job than hand washing all the pieces.
The greens we spun in the Paderno felt and looked similarly dry as the greens spun in the Good Grips. The downside to the Paderno lies in its side spout: You have to tip the whole spinner sideways with the greens inside to pour out the remaining water, but you end up pouring your dirty water back over your clean greens if you choose to use this supposed feature.
In our original testing, the Xtraordinary Home Products salad spinner certainly spun fast, bringing the spinach down to only 104 percent of its original weight in our first round of tests. But it decimated the raspberries, wobbled around, and was extremely difficult to clean. It might have a high RPM, but it fails almost every other test.
Nearly all salad spinners share the same basic construction: a basket set inside a larger bowl, topped with a lid that houses a spinning mechanism that is powered by either a cord, crank, or pump that uses centrifugal force to spin the basket, sending the residual water on the leaves out while holding the greens in.
"Don't just use your salad spinner to clean lettuce. It's also the best way to store your lettuce in the fridge," says Chandler. "The spinner allows air to circulate around the lettuces, keeping it fresher longer than if in an airtight container like Tupperware or a resealable plastic bag." If you don't have room for a larger container, a large zip-top bag will do the trick, but you risk greens bruising in the shifting and stacking of normal fridge traffic. If you notice your lettuce looking a little sad, submerge the leaves in cold water for 10 to 20 minutes to crisp them back up, then dry and enjoy.

HelloAmazingly I have discovered yet another ball that I can't explain and I can't find any known origin or the name of it's inventor. For the sake of clarity I will explain using a right handed leg spinner as bowler. In this variation the back of his wrist would be facing towards fine leg and his palm towards cover. Spinning the ball with his ring finger it would come out with the ball rotating towards mid-on with backspin and a little off spin. What I don't understand is that when opening the bowling once I bowled it and it swung across the whole pitch! The keeper litteraly had to do a full length dive to catch it (WIDE BALL) I had always practiced it with an old ball in net sessions and had never expected this much swing. I usually only bowled it for the backspin aerodynamics and skidding effect but now it is a much more potent weapon. I am actually left handed and I bowl this ball from over the wicket, it starts very wide on the leg side before swinging to outside off stump and getting a bit of off spin or outswing after bouncing. Batsmen have given me quite a few stares and glares when I bowl it but it has gotten me a bagfull of LBW's. Do you have any idea what this ball is, and also why does it swing so much? I bowl about 50 kilometres per hour with a 156 gram ball, and it swings that much with any type of new ball.
What you are describing is called an "arm ball". There is a LOT of confusion (particularly amongst commentators) about the arm ball. In fact the many different forms of a spinner's 'straight one' are very often confused- top spinners referred to as flippers etc.The arm ball is a delivery which spins back towards mid on and as a result has the same appearance in the air as a seam bowlers outswinger. This causes it to swing towards the offside, as you described and at the very least it will skid on instead of spinning into the right hander. The amount of spin on the ball determines how much extra length you get on the delivery. Topspin causes a ball to dip shorter than its initial trajectory suggests and backspin does the exact opposite so an arm ball will get lbws for you as batsmen are not only beaten by swing (if the conditions allow it) but also by going back to a ball that ultimately pitches fuller than expected. This is the danger of the Glimmet and Warne style flipper (backspin imparted by the thumb).
Actually it isn't the arm ball, you see I'm a left arm wrist spinner, not a finger spinner. It's an orthodox backspinning slider, but further around the loop, so the back of my wrist faces the slips when I bowl it and the seam fine leg spinning backwards to a Right Handed Batsman. I have no idea why it swings in the wrong direction but I keep the rough side on the left side so it does swing that way most of the time. I know how the arm ball is bowled (not that it matters to me at all) but this is something entirely different, although the effect is similar. It's more akin to a flipper than an arm ball in my opinion, (not the way of bowling it but the delivery itself) as it has that same slicing through the air, flat trajectory, low bounce and swing effect. It's not meant to be a regular variation or something that I practice, but occasionally when I get the release of my 45 degree OBS entirely wrong it comes out as this obscure backspinning / off spinning delivery which is quite easy to pick. (unfortunately)
I'm not that keen to use it as a variation and have pretty much abandoned the 90 degree backspinning OBS, but there will be other wrist spinner that probably use it as they're main wicket taking ball. Of course there aren't a lot of spinners that'll tell you backspin is a better variation than top spin, but in my experience it certainly is. Mostly because of the pitches that I bowl on and the batsmen I bowl too. Finger spinners are better off using top spinners in my opinion though.
Why can't the arm ball be scrambled? If you hold the ball like a normal off spinner and just run your fingers down the back it should come out scrambled and have the potential to skid on, not neccesarily away from the batsman but definitely not into them? A straight ball that isn't picked is better than a swinging away-moving ball that is picked, isn't it? There's an added bonus if you can bowl your regular off breaks with a scrambled seam as well, depends on the pitch (most pitches I've bowled on allow grip for both the seam and glance, but there's a lot of talk about scrambled seam deliveries skidding on entirely on some / most pitches)
Your right about the commentators that get confused, almost everything that skids on is an arm ball, slider or top spinner to them! Wish they would look at the slow motion replays BEFORE stating the delivery that was bowled.
Just to make sure I now have the delivery in my mind: you are a left arm wrist spinner (a la Brad Hogg). So if you release your stock leg break with the seam spinning towards fine leg for a right hander, pitching in front of off and spinning back into him. Then you may bowl with slightly more side spin so the seam is pointing towards square leg and spinning that way in the air. Then there is the release position for the traditional slider where the wrist is just slightly further round (although I find that my leg breaks -right handed- dont grip if I try and spin it too square so I have never pushed my wrist round this far). The ball you are talking about is bowled with the wrist slightly further round than the slider so the ball comes out spinning towards a right hander's mid on. 2b1af7f3a8
