I bought a lever garlic press which I LOVED so I was hoping this would be as good. It is pretty good, but not fabulous.
It does a good job squeezing without hurting the wrist, it lets the juice out quickly but keeps the seeds inside, it looks pretty awesome and it easy to spot in the kitchen, but it does leave quite a lot of good juice and pulp in all the citrus I have tried; oranges, lemons and limes.
I have tried squeezing cut-in-half fruits peel up and peel down, as I heard alternate instructions, but both ways result in a compressed disk or fruit, which has been pretty well juiced, but you can definitely get a good deal more out of it if you go for it with your thumbs.
I bought this partly to save my thumbs though, so I am trying to write off the convenience against the waste.

This has got to be the simplest juicer in the world. It squeezes all the juice out of limes and lemons very quickly (with hardly any effort on my part) and is very easy to clean. It might seem rather expensive for what it is, but then similar items sold at lower prices do not seem to do quite as good a job, so I guess you get what you pay for.

WOW. It sounds odd to say, but this is simply the best citrus juicer around. I've got very sophisticated electrical gear at home, but this manual juicer is the only one that is easy to use, always at hand, and maximising the juice out of a lime or a lemon, all of that in a no time. No fussing around. I got it as a present and am now buying it for all my friends. It's a gift that's always appreciated and impresses people. Go for it!

I've had other citrus juicers, but they were mostly cheap plastic ones. Not too difficult to use, but not very easy either. And I often ended up fishing pips out along the way.
I use lemons and limes quite a lot in cooking and one day (in a fit of madness) I decided to take my old man's advice and 'never buy cheap tools'.
This is not cheap, but it's certainly a heck of a lot better than any other I have used.
It's very substantial. Well made, has a metal 'crusher' to get all the juice out, and leaves any pips in the bowl of the unit, not in the cooking bowl. Just cut the fruit in half, put the half face down and squeeze the handles.
It's as heavy as a hammer (and probably nearly as big) but it definitely is a quality tool. It will last my cooking days out, so I don't begrudge the relative expense (wash your mouth out Yorkshireman!)

Anyway, I hope that this review is helpful in some way when making the decision.

I was shocked by some of the reviews on this item, specially once it was delivered (in time from Germany) and I could press lots of lemons and limes with it, getting lots of juice from them.

First, drinking fresh juice of this amazing fruits is so extremely healthy, you should not miss it. But then, some reviewers said:
It's a bad item, because I cannot use it for large oranges. Pardon me, it is NOT an orange juicer - as the very name of this item says - but it is a lime and lemon juicer. So be happy if smaller oranges work, but please don't complain when larger oranges don't. Because it is a LIME and LEMON juicer. Got it? I find it very unfair against the supplier to post a bad review because an item does not do what it is not supposed to do...

2., some say you can break it. Well, sure, you can break anything. But how were you able to break this? Did you try so hard until it broke just so you could write a bad review? When you use it with even very slight common sense - not much, really needed - then you will NOT break this item, because it is very well build.

Third - one review was specially hmmmh... strange, giving one star because the juice smells bitter. Well, if you buy a juicer that gets you up to 20% more juice and then you complain that some of that 20% is just a bit bitter and give it one star then, well, you do not like lemons or limes. Apparently for you everything needs to be sweet.

So, on the whole, take this item if you like to get lots of vitamins and you want to get juice out of these fruits without efforts and clean it effortlessly and get the last drop out of them. Don't ever buy one of the electric ones and don't buy another one at all. Because I am a lemon/lime lover since being a little child and.. this is the BEST juicer in the world. Thanks Chef'n fot his well engineered product.

Pros:
- Well build
- Does the job (lemons and limes squeezing) extremely well
- Fast and effortless to use
- Squeezes better than any other manual or electric squeezer I owned before
- Makes me healthier - as another reviewer mentionned, he is buying lemons and limes now just because it is so nice to squeeze them, same thing happened to me. My consumption has doubled ;)

Cons:
none. seriously.

This is a fantastic juicer. It squeezes every last droplet of juice from lemons or limes with the minimum of effort required. Just remember to put the half lemon/lime in the right way around - I didn't realise at first it goes in cut side down!

Note: It will do small oranges too but is a bit small for large oranges or grapefruit.

First time for writing a review on Amazon. This really is a fantastic piece of kit. You'll wonder how you ever managed without it. I'm even using more lemons and limes, just for the joy of using it, so I'm even healthier! Worth every penny.
Don't know where it was made, but you can bet it was Germany rather than Taiwan!

This is by far the best lemon squeezer I've ever owned - I keep buying cheap lemons just so I can squeeze them! Really easy to use and gets every last drop out. Easy to clean as well.

Excellent piece of kit. Easy to operate and easy to clean. It must be one of the best kitchen utensils around. Design and construction first class. A must have for all serious cooks.

Description inaccurate. It is not big enough for large Oranges. It is only 7.5cm, perfect for small oranges. I bought it to make Orange juice for breakfast. It is good for this as long as you only buy small oranges, which work out more expensive but some argue taste better. There are larger sizes made by other people but they do not have the ratchet system on the hinge to provide the extra leverage.
