Top Rated Zulay Premium Quality Metal Lemon Lime Squeezer - Manual Citrus Press Juicer
Lemon Squeezer is amazing. I squeezed 2 dozen limes the afternoon I brought the juicer into the house. The mechanics were very smooth and the limes were… I guess the verb should be… “squished” in no time. Easily. Very very easily. There are a couple of comments I’d make about the juicer though.
1. The bottom of the collection area is not large enough to house a very tall or very wide container for collection. That means getting a smaller repository or paying attention to emptying it. Also, the juicer does move a little bit while juicing.
So a wider topped container is necessary so you can fully collect your precious juice. I had to use a half pint mason jar and a funnel to ensure that it didn’t leak out. That was just tall enough to push the front feet of the juicer off the counter so I put a thin cutting board underneath to stabilize it.
2. If the fruit slides to the back of the bottom “anvil” portion of the juicer, the top “hammer” portion slides just a bit and can get hung up on the lip of the metal collection funnel. That requires a bit fruit repositioning.
3. The handle is bit small and hits a rubber stopper. Temper your enthusiastic squishes because you can squish fingers in there along with your limes.
4. My limes were small, and it seemed like I wasn’t getting a ton of juice from some of them. They looked half squished. So I thought I stacked two of the squished halves together and re-squished.
That resulted in a fair bit of juice. So I did a full round of stack and squish with all the once squished lime halves. I collected a pint and ½ cup of lime juice from the first round of squishing and another ½ cup of lime juice from the second round of squishing. Uh… judge all you want… that’s two margaritas that I would have left on the table instead of in my glass.
All of that being said, the first go was a screaming success and I can’t wait to introduce my new friend lime juice to my old friend tequila.Promised Review By Spoons
