Ninth Day of Gadgets — A Lemon Squeezer

Lemon SqueezerI've tried the reamers, I've tried the little cheesecloth caps, I've tried learning to love lemon seeds (which really aren't too bad). Then one of these enameled lemon squeezers showed up in my kitchen and I don't feel the need to try anything else.

The lemon squeezer is brutally simple: You put in half a lemon or other citrus fruit, squeeze the handles together, and capture the fresh seed- and pulp-free juice in a bowl or measuring cup. Take the rind out, rinse off the squeezer, and you're done. Whatever space it takes up in the kitchen drawer is well worth the fresh juice.
