Smurfs Follow Your Heart Top And Stars Pants Family Matching Pajamas Set Flame Resistant Review
alchartreux: I second what other cooks have stated here. OXO's wooden version of this citrus reamer is much better and three dollars cheaper to boot. The grooves on the wooden reamer are deeper and sharper and "catch" the sides of the fruit better, getting more juice out.
Indolent: I bought one of these a few years ago as I'm usually quite a fan of the Good Grips range of kitchen utensils and have rarely been let down by one. I have to say that while this does the job, just about, it's not one of OXO's better items. It's sturdily-built and as well-made as you'd expect from this range (that is to say, REALLY sturdily-built and well-made), but it's far from perfect. You certainly CAN use it to juice a lemon, and it does a reasonably competent job of it, but it could be a lot better-designed. The business end of this reamer is much too smooth and curved, with the result that it takes a lot more effort to use than a simple wooden reamer, and it still doesn't feel like you've got all the juice out when you're done. The lemon just seems to slide around the reamer and there's nothing to really get a grip on when you're squeezing the lemon. In contrast, theMSC Urban Essence Lemon Citrus ReamerI received as a gift a couple of years ago is much more efficient. Another issue I've experienced is the aluminum reacting with the citrus juice, resulting in a dull, blackened-looking reamer rather than a shiny silvery-looking one. Looks like OXO is aware that wood might be a better material when it comes to citrus reamers, as they also have awooden versionavailable. it doesn't really match the "look" of most of their products, and it's lacking in the "grip" that gives the product line its name, but I think if I find myself needing another reamer in the future, that is the one I'd go for.
- Kasia S.: This is a great item when I want to juice one or two fruits, preferably small citrus such as lemons or limes. It's heavy and quite hefty, and the grip is not squishy, it actually feels very solid and doesn't yield to pressure much but it's not uncomfortable. It washes really well and I prefer it to the wooden reamer, those tend to get gross if left wet or in the sink and wood should never be exposed to too much liquid unless it's still a tree sitting in the ground.I spend the last weekend making lemonade and limeade and this was in constant rotation. I just made up a simple recipe, juice of one lemon or two limes, good shake of sugar ( about 1.5 - 2 tbs) and mixed in with tiny bit of hot water to melt the sugar, then I added 5 ice cubes and filled my 12 oz glass to the rim with mineral water. Quick mix later and I had a great, refreshing sip of something healthy (minus the sugar I guess) that I got to make myself. I always have citrus fruit on hand; I get them in dozens and fill up a bowl in my room almost as a centerpiece, mixing the colors. It's definitely better to make some iced juice than drinking Kamikazes all night long lol.If I'm juicing a lot of fruits or oranges, I prefer the stationary juicer; one with a little plate attached but for quick jobs this is great, just remember to roll the citrus on the counter while pressing on it with the palm, or a quick nuke in the microwave makes it even more juicy and fabulous.- Kasia S.
Robert King "Creative Simplicity": I went with this over the wooden for aesthetics, and it does a great job. No slipping and good on all kinds of citrus.
Tony Thiel: I've had them all! Wood, Plastic and Aluminum and I prefer the Aluminum type.Even though the wood works a little bit better, it's harder to clean and after a while it starts to look gunky and unhealthy. Hard to wash the wood after it's been used a while and the wood is no longer smooth. No matter how hard you wash, it still feels slimy and that's what bothers me.You may have to work a bit harder with the plastic or aluminum but when you wash them, they're clean and they feel clean.
