Wow maybe I need to get one of these. I always do it by hand but this sounds great.

The other trick I have used is to use a pair of tongs. Put the lemon half in between the tongs up where you would usually hold them, then grab the bottom of the tongs and squeeze.

And roll the lemon or lime on the bench for a few seconds before using the squeezer.

I've got a really useful one with several 'caps' for use with anything from a lime to a grapefruit. I think I bought it at Woolies on a throw out table. (In Oz)

What I love about the squeezer that the OP is asking about is that it makes this step unnecessary.

I have one of the squeezers but usually use the reamer instead. I get a good bit of juice with that.

The enameled ones will peel. Ours eventually did. We replaced it with a heavy-duty plastic one and love it. No peeling, and it was inexpensive. If you want to spend more bucks, go with metal.

I picked one up at BB&B for 12 bucks and immediately put it to use making shrimp ceviche. Worked great and the shrimp was excellent too!
