Great for quickly juicing fruit,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kitchen Craft Beech Wood Fruit Reamer (Kitchen & Home)
I have an all singing and dancing fruit juicer machine but if I just want the juice from one orange, lemon, grapefruit or lime it really doesn't seem worth pulling it out of the cupboard, setting it up and then all the cleaning involved afterwards. That is where this little beauty really comes into its own.
This wooden device is small enough to store in a kitchen drawer along with your rolling pin and other utensils. The handle is comfortable to hold and it is extremely easy to use. Simply slice a citrus fruit in half, push the point of this tool into the centre of the fruit and then rotate it until you have extracted all of the juice.
This seems to extract a lot more juice than the glass or plastic devices that you sit on your counter and then place the fruit on top of. I've used both types and this definitely leaves less material inside the fruit.
It is easy to clean so long as you wash it up straight away. I have found that if I leave it then the pulp from the fruit dries into the grooves and it can be a pain to remove it. I don't put mine in the dishwasher as I have had wooden items split down the grain in the past after going through a few cycles.
Overall, a great little tool which is a useful addition to any kitchen
