GB - are you talking about the yellow gadget that squeezes the half? See, now you're gonna talk me into that thing. And the link I provided has one where you put in an insert for a lime....now look...you're gonna make me spend my husband's hard-earned money and don't think I won't tell him it's your fault!!!

Yep that is what I'm talking about KE. They work better than anything else I have tried.

I've used something similar for years, to squeeze limes for limeades. I even have one, sized appropriately for limes.

I've never thought of using tongs for juicing limes/lemons before. One of the pairs I have here would definitely work, as would most of the tongs we have at work.

And it keeps the seeds out of your juice. You can also quarter oranges and use it for those too. I love mine and, thankfully, it's white not bright yellow like most I've seen. I got it from Pampered Chef.

Being made for the fruit in question, a reamer does a better job. I can apply more force with a reamer and not worry about bending it. The reamer has reaming ribs around the perimeter so it can attack more of the fruit at one turn.

For a fork you would have to twist and turn and squeeze harder as it doesn't have much surface space - the reamer is bigger so you wouldn't have to work so hard.
