First it's stainless steel and built tough,very heavy duty. second it's got a 3" bowl, large enough for the large limes and lemons, but I'm afraid that it's too small for most oranges sold in supermarkets.
I feel that the design could be improved with another roll of holes in the bottom of the press, but other than that it's the best I've come across. Since I've received it, I've had a chance to look in several specialty cooking stores and haven't found one comparable.
**** Update, it's now 8/15/07. I use the press almost every day (my favorite drink is 2 packets of splenda, one fresh lime and a quart of carbonated water over ice). The press is in the same shape it when I bought it. No deformation of the handles (I'm a big guy 6'6" and 325 lbs and I've really squeezed the handles hard), after a pass through the dishwasher it shines like new.
**** Update it's now 11/18/2009. Still using it just about every day and it still looks and works like new.
**** Update 1/12/2012. Still works fine, I now have a small amount of deflection in the handles(hey after 6.5 years of hard use that's not too bad), my solution is to squeeze one half of the lime, take it out, put the other half in and then put the first half on top and squeeze them both. This is working for me, but if it gets any worse I'll consider getting a new one - I still love this device.
To quantify the deflection in the handle, the gap is less than ¼" in the pressing area. Arrived at by measuring the distance between the bottom of the top bowl and the bottom of the lower bowl (through a hole in the lower bowl) and deducting the thickness of the metal of the lower bowl.
UPDATE: It's been about 4.5 years since I bought this and it still works (and looks) like new. We go through about a dozen lemons and limes each week which comes out to over 5,000 uses without any problems. For me, in hindsight, spending a little extra for the Norpro was a good choice.
UPDATE: (3/2013) Had this for seven years now. We still use a lot of citrus, especially since there is one more of us, and the Norpro still doesn't show any signs of wear. I'm even embarrassed to admit it goes through the dishwasher four or five times a week.
UPDATE 4/2015) It's been over 9 years and this (darn) think still looks and works as good as new. Check back in a couple years for the next update (if I'm still here).
BTW, I feel that honest, effective reviews can take the place of first-hand experiences that are lacking in online shopping. I've always appreciated the help I've received from other reviewers and work hard to return the favor as best as I can. I hope you found this review helpful and if there was anything you thought was lacking or unclear leave a comment and I'll do what I can to fix it.
But it drips water. Soapy water, sometimes, and if you're lucky, it'll drip onto your floor or counter--and not into your iced tea. The handles are enclosed but hollow, and water will get trapped inside. No matter how I try to outsmart it, it'll manage to retain a little. Until I go to use it, that is; then it'll be glad to let it go. Into my tea. Or onto my toes.
I wanted stainless steel for easier cleaning. No advantage there; the lemon oil still collects on it, and hand-scrubbing with an abrasive sponge doesn't take it off. The dishwasher will, but. . .then you have to spread it open and put it on the bottom rack--at least, in my dishwasher. Then the water gets into the handle and when you pull it out, you get a nice little shower. How stupid is that? All they had to do, as they were ripping off the design of the other ones, was rip off the design. Instead they had to get clever and enclose the handle. Which traps water. Soapy water.
And in general, it doesn't work as well as the cheap yellow ones. Not enough holes, or maybe the bowl is slightly different. The one advantage is that there's no paint to peel off after a year, but the annoyance of the tricky drip outweighs that. I won't buy another one. And I'm going to save this one to throw through a window at the Norpro factory if I ever find it. At the engineering department.

Paid a lot for what I thought was a rugged press only to have the hinge twist & rod fall out. It's beyond the return date, so I'm stuck buying a replacement.Published 11 days ago by nutbrownhares
