The Not So Good
Made from 100% stainless steel
Doesn't extract all of the juice, some stays inside
Large size suitable for lemons and limes
Usage: For lemon and limes, cut the citrus fruit in half along the widest part. Place one half in the lemon, cut side down, into the squeezer and press handles together. I usually use both hands to start the squeezer. The juice comes out of the bottom. The lemon and the seeds stay inside. Open the lemon squeezer and discard the citrus fruit (lemons and limes should not be composted).
For bigger citrus fruits, like oranges and grapefruit, cut into four or more pieces. For orange, cutting into fourths works the best. Place each fourth into the lemon squeezer and squeeze.
Clean the lemon squeezer after use by rinsing with water and letting air dry. Every once in a while, I will use some soap on the lemon squeezer.
Results: I love the large size of the squeezer because that means I can use it for just about any citrus fruit. Over the past few weeks, I have been using it to squeeze orange juice for smoothies or to give my son freshly squeezed orange juice. The oranges were quick to squeeze and I was able to extract a lot of juice from them, though not all of the juice because some stays inside. The handles are ergonomic and were comfortable to use.
Lessons Learned: One thing to be aware of is that the juice sometimes squirts out of the side of the squeezer (between the top and bottom parts). Also, after squeezing, I like to tilt the lemon squeezer to pour any juice inside out of the side. I can usually get a good amount of juice to pour out of the side.
I really like the light weight of the lemon squeezer, yet the durability of the stainless steel design. The lemon squeezer is easy to use and easy to clean. I would purchase this lemon squeezer again and would recommend it. With proper care, this premium lemon squeezer will last a long time and will be used for many different uses.
