Our new favorite gadget

August 26th 05:08pm, 2009

Washing your hands. An essential, though not usually a memorable, part of dining out. But some local eateries are making the hygiene experience a little greener and a lot faster by installing Dyson Airblade hand dryers. The company estimates that 22 people can dry their hands with one of these suckers for the price of one paper towel. And it takes just 12 seconds to get those hands dry, instead of the achingly slow 27 seconds the process can take with your run-of-the-mill hand dryer. Dyson describes the technology as “400-mph sheets of air literally scraping hands dry.” Sounds scary, but it feels like sticking your hands into tiny wind tunnels, and it doesn’t hurt a bit. The restrooms at Schlafly Bottleworks and The Schlafly Tap Room are sporting Airblades, and the second Pi, set to open Sept. 9 in Kirkwood, will have one as well.

    So… You have to stick your hands INSIDE it? Meaning that kid that washed their hands right before me without soap, then snotted on their hand, then stuck them in this thing… Then *I* am supposed to stick MY hands in it?
    *gag*

    Love, love, love these things. But it’s amazing to see people not know how to use them.
