In my baking and cooking I love to use lemons or limes. Their tart citrus flavor sets the right tone. I also use a few lemon slices in my drinking water. Thus far, I have been using an old wooden dowel like product that releases the lemon juice. But, I always seemed to find seeds here and there, and I had to take the time to hunt down those seeds.
Now, I have this beautiful lemon colored lemon squeezer. I can squeeze to my heart's content. Slice a lemon or lime in half, lace one half in the squeezer and go ahead and squeeze. All that lovely citrus juice comes flowing out. And, I find I have more juice when using this squeezer. Today, I made my citrus cookies, and used both lemons and limes. What a delicious treat.
This progressive international lemon squeezer is made of aluminum. It is easy to use, and makes for easy clean up. I usually hand wash mine, but you can place it in the dishwasher as well. So far, the color has not faded, the squeeze portion remains firm but easy to press. Why I waited so long to purchase is a mystery.

Wow, what a great tool. I have used squeezers of different types for years and wondered why the fruits always seemed to have less juice than expected. I saw this on Amazon at good price, £7 I think, absolute bargain. It is alloy and therefore very strong. I had a lemon in the fridge for weeks and decided to practice on it and was AMAZED at the amount of juice I got out of just HALF of it. I suggest any one who enjoys squeezing lemons of limes in their cooking or cocktails to buy one of these Bartenders Tools. The juice runs out and no flesh or pips accompany the juice. Great. Well worth every penny. Pip Pip, Hooray !!
