The press works. I prefer the juicer that Andy posted.

I'd use the juicer for lemons and oranges. I'd use the press for limes.

Eric, Austin Tx.
I love mine. You put the lemon halves in upside down and backwards, contrary to what it looks like you should do.

I learned that too. The holes are on the "wrong" side. You have to place the half lemon or lime in the anti-intuitive position and then it works really better..

Clever marketing. Yellow one for lemons, green for limes and an orange one for (you gessed it) oranges. Each one is a different size. I have an old green depression glass one that your grandmother used. But I also have the one pictured with the bowl below the reamer. It catches the seeds and lets the juice through to the bowl. And if I am in a hurry, I just use a fork and my tongs for squeezing.

I have, always had, strong hands but can't use the hand-squeeze juicers anymore because arthritis has claimed both my hands. Instead I use this juicer. It squeezes the bejeepers out of lemons, oranges, whatever...and I don't have to strain to use it.

It's so cute! Looks like ET!

Where did you find it, Katie?

I bought it at a local warehouse close-out store and only paid $3.99 for it. Best few bucks I've ever spent. I would imagine if you did a search for "manual juicer" on Amazon, something like it would show up.

I remember them from my childhood. Was going to buy one, then I saw the tong trick. So I do that most of the time.

I had one of those. I bought it as a replica at an "antique" store. They were all the rage here in Montreal in the early 90's. My ex got it.

Looked at Amazon. The least expensive one was $45.00. The most expensive one was $5,000.00. That is not a misprint. It is for restaurant use. You load up the oranges in a tube and it just whizzes them free of their juice.
