I'm a huge fan of anything that takes up the smallest amount of space possible, while still be useful. There's something wonderful about functional furniture (storage ottomans, etc.). In the kitchen it seems like every appliance is huge and rarely put to use.
Enter the Progressive Collapsible Salad Spinner. We got this as a wedding gift and I couldn't be happier with it. Not only does the entire thing collapse into a thin disc, it also doubles as a serving bowl or colander. It can also be washed in the dish washer if needed.
So for anyone out there trying to make more space available in their crowded cabinets, may I suggest investing in one of these.
