Holy Christmas, Batman! Guess I got a really good deal getting mine at $3.99. I've gotten more than my money's worth out of it, too.

Care to sell it for $4.00? I would even pay the sales tax if it is applicable.

Not a chance. This little treasure is going to be in my kitchen for a long, long time. I love it. I bought it many years ago never thinking that it would become so important to me now. Man, oh man, arthritis in one's hands is just too inconvenient. To say nothing of painful.

Wow! The stakes got higher as I was posting my reply to Addie.

This also works well, but you have to chase the seeds:


I reach for the olive wood juicer when I just need the juice of one lemon.
I have 1 of these in wood and 1 in plastic.

I also have one similar to this for larger quantities of juice.
I have one of these in metal.
When I needed to squeeze ... I usaually grabbed a fork. LOL

Till my mom passed and I got hers. You can squeeze limes, lemons and grapefruit in it. Just squeeze and pour. Comes apart into 4 pieces to clean. I put a whole large lemon in it so you could get some idea of the size. I have never seen them in any stores anywhere. Mom had from before I was born so I don't know how old it is. I'm not sure what it is made out of.

I've tried almost all of the others, and this is my favorite, but I can see why it wouldn't work with those who have small, weak, or arthritic hands. I have what I call the reamer, that one GLC put, and it's fine for limes and seedless, as said. But easier is the one in this post. You halve or quarter (you can really buy them in three sizes, lime, lemon, orange, but I just have the lemon size and quarter oranges, and limes work just fine). The real trick is one I saw on some TV show, and that is that, contra-intuitive, you put the cut side down, thus turning the fruit inside-out when you squeeze. I feel it gets the most juice out, and you don't have to strain the seeds.

Today, I bought an OXO juicer, because I got wind of an America's Test Kitchen recommendation, and I wanted something to cleanly just produce a small glass of juice in the morning.



I must say, it definitely strips the guts and juice out of an orange half and cleans up very quickly.
