5.0 out of 5 stars An amazingly effective piece of kit, 23 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amco Lime Citrus Squeezer (Kitchen & Home)
I concur with the other reviews. This is an amazingly effective piece of kit. Cut a lime in half, place the cut side down in the cup, squeeze the handles and Bob's your uncle. Effortless juice extraction, and the skin, flesh and pips can be removed in one piece for discarding. No mess all over your hands, no mopping up of fleshy bits and seeds, and consequently so easy to clean afterwards.

I would suggest though that there is no real need to get this particular squeezer, but to get the same brand of lemon squeezer instead. I wondered if the relative size and curvature of the cup might make this smaller squeezer more efficient with the smaller fruit. I performed an experiment, cutting two limes in half and using one half of each (to average out any difference in yield between the two fruit) with this squeezer and one half of each with the lemon squeezer. The amount given by the lemon squeezer was in fact slightly more that yielded by this squeezer. So within experimental error the lemon squeezer is certainly not any worse at squeezing limes. The other advantage of using the lemon squeezer with the limes is that there is less chance of juice squirting out of the sides of the cup, as occasionally happens.

So with hindsight I would probably have only bought the lemon squeezer rather than both. Having said that, if you are squeezing a number of both limes and lemons on the same occasion, for example when making a number of cocktails, it's nice to have both. Note that there is also an orange squeezer of the same make.
