Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chef'n Freshforce Citrus Juicer Lime Colour (Kitchen & Home)
I cook a lot of Mexican food and I also like the occasional Margarita. That means I get through a lot of limes.
Previously I've used one of the reamer style juicers - they work well but they're messy and you can't separate out any pips.
The Freshforce Citrus Juicer is better than the reamer - you cut your fruit in half, pop it in the indented cup of the juicer, then squeeze the handles together. The juice falls through perforations in the cup area and all but the smallest pips are held there.
My big worry with this juicer, in advance of receiving it, was whether it would be sturdily constructed. It is. I can't see it developing any stress breakages on the hinge, or elsewhere, in a long while.
I gave it a proper running in on New Year's Eve. 30 limes were turned into a litre of lime juice in about 20 minutes, without suffering from an aching arm or sticky fingers.
One caveat - its sturdiness means that it's not a small item. The arms in particular are quite bulky, so be aware that it will take up quite a bit of cupboard / drawer space.
