There is very little more annoying than lettuce spinners.  Bring “forced” to use one is extremely annoying. Struggling to push the lever round in circles as the whole thing moves uncontrollably all over the worktop is mightily annoying.  Having to wash up three large pieces of plastic with nooks and crannies that you can’t get into with the washing up brush is really annoying.

When you then discover that the spinner is designed to drain by means of a series of holes in its base – which is why the work surface is now flooded in green water – that is annoying beyond words.  Far far beyond words.
