Salad spinners are handy kitchen tools to help wash greens and use centrifugal force to spin them dry. But they are also handy for a whole host of other cooking ingredients. Want to remove the seeds from canned tomatoes? Just empty the can and break up the tomatoes a little bit, then spin away. Need dried canned beans for a recipe? Just rinse and spin so your hummus isn't too watery. And you don't even need to use the spinning part. Use the inner basket to soak delicate fruit like berries, then lift them right out of the water.
