Whenever I squeeze a lemon for cooking, or for a drink, there’s always at least one pip that escapes into the food or glass. And they are fiendishly hard to get out again; slippery and fiddly and maddeningly difficult to catch.
I like the old glass lemon squeezers, but they only take the juice of one lemon and those pips still love to escape.
So, here’s OXO’s Good Grips take on the matter. A 2 in 1 Citrus Juicer that uses the traditional reamer method to get the juice out, but updates it to make sure no pips can fall in and the juice can be collected easily.
The large tank can hold up to 350ml/1.5 cups and it’s shaped to make it easy to get a secure grip when you bear down to squeeze.
It’s also helpfully marked with measurement lines in cups, fluid oz. and ml, which save a second step when cooking and it has a no-drip pouring spout.There are two reamer options – lemon and orange/grapefruit size -and both snap in securely.
Cleverly the two options slot together for easy storage, although it can be a bit awkward getting them to line up.
For those that like a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice in the morning, or a cocktail later in the day, it’s perfect. You don’t need use a powered juicer, this gets every drop out with minimal effort and it is of course dishwasher-safe and BPA free.
A simple thing, but one you’ll appreciate having around and as it’s built to OXO high standards it should last you years.Get one at Amazon
