Kitchen Gadget Series: Citrus Squeezer

I have a little hand citrus squeezer that is fine to use for one or two limes/lemons, yet I tend to buy a bunch of citrus and squeeze it into juice to fill a container for easy use during the week. When I have to process a dozen or so fruits, I pull my big, heavy, industrial Citrus Squeezer out of the Storage Room.

Citrus SqueezerWhile it’s not the most often used kitchen gadget I own, I am immensely grateful to have it! Since I’ve been cutting all the weird chemicals out of my world, I don’t buy bottled juice anymore. Now I bike to the local market and buy a dozen or so lemons or limes, wash them, and juice them into a bottle in the fridge. I buy just enough for a week or two. If I had to use the hand squeezer for 12 limes, that’s 24 hand-cramping squeezes to pull all the juice from the fruit. I pull my industrial Citrus Squeezer off the shelf every couple weeks, rinse it off, and the machine does all the hard work for me. No more hand cramps! It’s easy to clean, and really extracts all the juice in one squeeze. I love it!

While a big Citrus Squeezer like this is a bit of an extravagance, I am so grateful to have it when I need it. It saves time and energy for a Kitchen Artist who chooses to do everything from scratch with whole foods. Tools really make the efforts easier. The quality of the food is totally worth every expense in time and money, so any tools that make me happier and more efficient are a blessing!

Breathe deeply,
Laugh with abandon,
Love wholly,
Eat well.
