Beyond cool. That’s what these two kitchen products are – beyond cool.
First up, the kitchen product to the left is the Spin n’ Stor and it… well… it puts a new spin on greens. As you know, I’ve been posting a lot about salads and healthy eating lately. However, like you, I’m always especially mindful of thoroughly cleaning my produce. I have one of those salad spinners that were all the rage a few years back. It does the job, but it does take up quite a bit of valuable cabinet real estate.
The Spin n’ Stor gets extra cool points because it takes up less space. The patented Spin ‘n Stor Reusable Salad Spinning Bag is designed to easily remove excess moisture from freshly washed salad greens. The clever design of the Spin ‘n Stor also helps produce & herbs stay fresher longer (In today’s economy, that’s a huge deal!) Another plus, the Spin ‘n Stor allows you to take fresh, healthy salads & herbs with you to work, to walk, on picnics, etc. This way, you’ll be less apt to head to the golden arches when you’re hungry. You’ll have your fresh, healthy vegetables or fruit with you to enjoy.
How Does Spin ‘n Stor Work?
Simply place the freshly washed salad greens and/or herbs in the Spin ‘n Stor bag, hold the top closed and vigorously spin the bag in a circular motion. The water collects in the unique Spin ‘n Stor “reservoir” at the bottom of the bag and can be poured out neatly. From there, the bag becomes the produce container and can be closed with provided twist ties and stored in the refrigerator using minimal space.

Used Spin ‘n Stor bags can simply be rinsed out and folded small for easy storage in a refrigerator.
This looks like something I’d be very interested in trying.
Next up is something that I absolutely love and can’t help but wonder, “Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before?!” It’s the Chop Keeper Chopping tray and, frankly, I think it’s ingenious.
I know what you’re thinking, “There are already countless cutting boards on the market.” Believe me, I know – half of them are in my cabinets! But get this: the “Chop Keeper” is the only cutting board that has sides. These 1/2 inch raised sides keep juices, flour, and crumbs from spilling out onto the countertop and getting between the countertop and tray.
I get tired of all the clean up associated with chopping and cutting. With the patented ‘Chop Keeper’, you can carve meats, cut fruits, veggies, breads or whatever and be sure that your counters are always clean. It keeps whatever you slice or chop where you want it.
The “Chop Keeper” is a uniquely shaped tray made from FDA approved plastic. The innovative design and shape of the “Chop Keeper” also allows the board to flex and form an easy funnel guide so food will slide right into a bowl, plate or cooking pan. Lightweight yet sturdy, the “Chop! Keeper” is so attractive and versatile it can also double as a serving tray.
Three dishwasher-safe “Chop Keepers” are included in each package: Choice of Luminescent Midnight, Copper or Stainless or a combination to match any kitchen décor. Click HERE for more information and to place your order.
The Chop Keepers and the Spin and Stor are available online at reasonable prices.
I’m headed back to the site because as a cat lover, I noticed they have something called a Kitty Lounge that looks promising.
