My Review: I've never experienced using a professional lemon squeezer such as this. I just have the old fashioned kind. My first impression when I opened up the box was this thing is huge. I can squeeze my oranges too, not just lemons and limes.
I've learned over the years that to get the most juice from your citrus when squeezing, there are certain things to do first. You can either roll the fruits on a counter or cutting board using the palm of your hand to soften the membranes of the fruit. You can heat up the fruit in a microwave for about 30 seconds. You can run the fruit under hot water for a few minutes. Then when you are ready to squeeze, slice your fruit lengthwise (which is the opposite of what you would normally tend to do.)
Well after I washed the fruit using a mixture of vinegar, water, and lemon essential oil, I placed the lime and orange in the microwave for 30 seconds, then slightly rolled them in the palm of my hand to completely soften and break down the hard membranes so I could maximize the juice quantity. Then I sliced my oranges the normal way, and the lime lengthwise. Now my oranges are small. In fact, the lime was larger than my oranges. But my small oranges are very tasty.
When you place the fruit into the squeezer, it almost seems natural to place it in upside down. Don't do that or you will have juice going where you don't want it.
When place properly, the juice will flow out the holes in the bottom into your container.
Needless to say, when I saw all the pulp left on the peels, I thought that a lot of juice was still left untouched. Not so. I was pleasantly surprised that the pulp was extremely dry. So, if you want the pulp in your juice, this lemon squeezer won't provide it. You will have to manually extract the pulp from the peel.
After trying the oranges, I decided to test this professional citrus squeezer against my old fashioned kind. I did this with the lime. I sliced my lime lengthwise to maximize juice production. I again was pleasantly surprised that each yielded the same amount of juice. However, the old fashioned juicer gave me all the pulp, the professional squeezer left the pulp in the peel. I'll tell you this, the professional squeezer has my vote. It is faster, easier and more fun to use. Clean up is fast and easy and there was less mess all together with Kitchen Frontier's Professional Lemon Squeezer.
With Mother's Day just around the corner, this would make a perfect gift. Just think how much easier and quicker it will be to make freshly squeezed lemonade this summer using this fun kitchen tool.
