For the longest time all I had to squeeze lemons was a little plastic piece that was so flimsy I didn't even like using it. I use lemons and limes often in food, but usually it is one at a time so I just did it with my hands. Then I started getting into cocktail making and I really enjoy a frozen mint mojito in the Summer and other citrusy drinks in the Winter. I finally got myself a real lemon/lime squeezer and I can't believe it took me so long.
This is under $14 and is an amazing squeezer, takes up no space and has literally changed my life. I actually will consider making lemonade now for the kids too. Have you tried this little gadget?
So far in my small kitchen, I am not ready for anything else, but if I had space, I would consider this Cuisinart Juicer, it can juice anything from the smallest lime to the largest grapefruit.
If you are more of an orange person and you have space, this Rabbit Juicer is a great option. It is particularly great if you have an orange tree and want to squeeze a glass or two every day.
