Gotcha a New Gadget!!!

Good Day Apron Goddesses!!!

I discovered a new kitchen tool over the winter break that I wanted to share with you all cause I love it so much. Have you any clue what they are? No, this is not a strange tool for some demented science experiment, it's a modern - retro kitchen appliance! Every PROPER Apron Goddess needs one of these in their kitchen drawer! Hee hee.


Getting warmer? The shiny enamel coated hardware called to me in the grocery store... Why I never found this before is beyond me.


You must know by now what these are. (But did you also notice that my kitchen counters are like 1970 still? Sad but true.)


This is a simple lime/lemon squeezer made in the style of a garlic press. So I guess one should really call this a lime press.


They work amazingly well. I think you can get EVERY drop of juice of of those stubborn limes. I used to roll them on the counter to crush the fibers inside the lime prior to my recent discover but there is no need to do that any longer.

I kept thinking after using these, "Where have you been all my life?"


The lime press does all the work in splendid fashion.


So there you have it!! It's a simple gadget but a beauty in simplicity and function.

My grocery store carried these so I am thinking they are available EVERYWHERE.

I paid about 9.99 each for these little work horses. Yes, a little expensive but it was Christmas. *sigh*

Ms Snarky Pants said...

Well that is darn cool!

Why those things are niftiness itself! I want to say that I need one and I'll be looking for one on my next trip out, but sadly... I am doing a no-buy challenge this year. Yep all year. Will I survive? Well, it's 5 days in and I'm already having withdrawal, yipes! ;)

Thanks for sharing... sob.

Aren't they great? I have a coated cast aluminum citrus press that I got from Pampered Chef - very handy!

I have many many kitchen gadgets but for some odd reason I don't have one of these. Go figure! They are handy little tool indeed.

you have the lime in the wrong way. the cut side goes towards the holes so the juice can run out. I know it seems weird but try it , it will work much better. the way you have it is just mushing the lime.cut side down it pushes all the juice out

Funny, my mouth water reading and viewing this post. Still is. I *love* citrus and how it plays on the senses!

Miss Dot said...

Pretty AND functional -- sounds like me! ;) Haha. $9.99 isn't SO bad. Totally worth it!!
