A Brief History of Salad Spinners
Did you know your salad spinner had two designs?
These designs were introduced in 1970's. The first design was patented by Jean Mantelet in 1971 (French). His salad spinner had a central post in the spinning bowl, which was inconvenient.
But then two years later (1973), Gilberte Fouineteau (French) patented a salad spinner with the removable basket and without a central post.
Viola, since then his design has been the foundation for modern salad spinners.

For several decades, salad spinners have not changed in its designs nor added any new features although there are many glaring issues with them.
Here are some shortcomings of traditional salad spinners:

- Space hogging when not in use.
Dirt, Mold, & Mildew
- the lid and its spin mechanism has potential for dirt, mold, and mildew growth
