Lemons and limes are a pantry staple. They are fairly inexpensive, loaded with vitamin C, and brighten almost any dish, baked good or adult beverage. That means, a good quality citrus juicer is something you simply must not live without. I prefer this style of juicer because it squeezes every last drop of juice out your fruit, all while catching the seeds before they end up in your food (or drink). THIS particular juicer (the one I have) is no joke. It’s has a “dual-gear mechanism” that squeezes out more juice than your average hand held juicer yet it’s design actually reduces the amount hand strength needed to squeeze the daylights out of your fruit. Plus, it’s made from stainless steel so it’s durable and will last forever.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or lemon cake. Or a lemon drop martini. With a citrus juicer, the possibilities are endlessssss.
PSA: Your lemon goes in butts up so as to not squirt yourself in the eyeball. I was using up a very thick slice of a lemon at the time of the photo!
