Customer Reviews

Handle broke off first time I used it.
Francois Gour
I'm happy with how this squeezer gets almost all the juice out of lemons and limes - much, much better than hand squeezing.
L.E.
Avoid this one and all painted/enamel squeezers and just get a solid stainless steel one.

Boy, from these reviews, people are very passionate about their lemon squeezers. This is my second Amco Enameled Aluminum Lemon Squeezer (or Lemon Thingy as it is called by those of us whose memories have been addled by time, fate and circumstance). My first Lemon Thingy was pilfered by a friend in retaliation for the theft of a potato peeler, so obviously it is a very good juicer or I would have tried a new one, but why tempt fate?

This is a darn good lemon squeezer and I will defend it against all nay-sayers. It's easy to use, the juice comes squooshing out quite nicely, and I have suffered no lemon-related injuries as a result of using the apparatus. One reviewer complained that the lemon thingy was not dishwasher safe. It never occured to me that a lemon squeezer required such thorough cleansing. I just rinse mine under cold water and throw it back in the drawer. Certainly my housekeeping skills would make Martha Stewart take the gaspipe, but who scrubs the lemon juicer?

Another reviewer rather ominously foresees the day when the pin holding the two sides together will break. Well, yeah, eventually. But maybe we'll all be dead by then, look at the bright side. Another saves her lemon squoosher for lemons and has a separate (green) one devoted especially to limes. Lord I admire that kind of organization. I'm always surprised that I remembered to get lemons or limes in the first place, let alone have segregated squeezing apparati for them. And of course, I am, admittedly, a wildcard when it comes to citrus. If I were to find an orange small enough, I'd squoosh it in the lemon thingy too. Without hesitation. Yeah, I'm like that. Don't mess with me. No telling what will happen.

This aluminum lemon squeezer broke on my second use. I gave my beloved stainless steel lemon squeezer purchased two years ago at Sur La Table to my mother so I thought I try a cheaper one from Amazon. This Amco product was highly reviewed and popular so I gave it a chance. What a disappointment. First, the squeezer is light due to being made of aluminum but not in a good away. It felt like a toy vs a handy cooking tool you can count on for years. But I tried to reserve judgment in the face of my girlfriend immediately criticizing my choice. Second, the yellow "paint" was horrible. Unlike the one I bought from Sur La Table, the paint was uneven and you could even see the base color coming through even when it was new! I was very disappointed but I figured just use the damn thing. What am I going to do, go through the trouble to return a $10 item? No, I thought. But I was left with no choice when it broke on my second use. I didn't even squeeze that hard. I couldn't believe it. So my advice to all of my fellow Amazon loving, regular lemon squeezers:

1. Don't wast money on any cheap aluminum squeezers, whether it's Amco or another manufacturer. I don't think aluminum or anything that has plastic components are fit for squeezing mechanisms. Spend extra few bucks on a stainless steel kind from a reputable manufacturer. Otherwise, you will end up spending more time pissed off and possibly writing a review to help others not buy a "lemon." Not worth all of the grief for a $10 purchase.

2. Most lemon squeezers are too small to handle large lemons, e.g. the kind you get from Costco. I would purchase a stainless steel orange squeezer. They are normally too small to handle large oranges but perfect for large lemons.

Color Name: Aluminum
I purchased this squeezer because it was highly recommended by Cook's Illustrated [which has reliable opinions]. I have found it to be everything they said and more. No matter how difficult the lemon, it extracts the most juice and leaves the pulp and seeds behind. I have arthritis in my hands but find this squeezer easy and comfortable to use. My juice extractor of choice was a reamer, but now I go for the Amco Squeezer instead. I also have the lime squeezer which is even more useful because limes are often dry and hard.

Pros - It squeezes lemons well. It's pretty easy to clean but (see cons). It's yellow which signifies 'lemon use' - so hopefully you won't mistake it for a garlic press or a tortilla warmer. It seems cool enough that Hemingway might use it. It isn't made or marketed by anyone named Martha or Paula or for god sakes, Rachel. No matter how cool you are, it's better than using your bare hands to make cocktails for one or more.

Cons - It's yellow, so the dumb might think you can't squeeze limes with it (actually, for that reason, file this under 'Pros'). It isn't as easy as it should be to clean - I mean, compared to a machine that requires disassembly to clean, it's easy - but the strange black scum that builds up after a good squeezing session is mysterious and takes some scrubbing to get off. Oxidation? No matter how cool you are, if you're making drinks for more than a couple of people, you should get a machine. There is definitely some waste that occurs (in your eye usually) - which brings me to the last con. I've had my fair share of eye squirts from this bad boy. It makes me wonder how much more juice is lost not in my eye but around my kitchen. And then it makes me wonder if I should care that much?
