Yes. Takes a lot of hard squeezing.

I have one of those. It works pretty well. It's not so hard that most people will have trouble, but there are enough comments that it's too hard, that I have to assume it's a problem for people with little hand strength. It does not deal well with anything too large to fit into the bowl, like an orange. Tends to shoot juice out the sides.

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 the olive wood juicer I use for a single fruit.
I also have one similar to this for larger quantities of juice.

Nifty. Mine is very old. It's porcelain and doesn't have the strainer and catcher bowl.

It was a cheap and low-tech solution but it works great! I use it for lemons and limes and it wrings all the juice out of them.

Yeah I think it works week. Still takes some pressure but since its got a lever it is much easier then by hand

I have one. It's not that it's hard at all...your hand just gets tired of pressing the handles together...After about four lemons your hand really gets a workout.

I have that tool and use it all the time when I have a few lemons to squeeze but they can't be giant lemons or they don't fit. Otherwise works great. But if I am squeezing like a lot of lemons or limes I whip out electric reamer thingey for oranges and use it for lemons. Its hard to clean so I don't use the electric one unless I have to.
