Our objections are, the enamel peels off where the juice contacts it most strongly and repeatedly, so that bits of paint fall in your food preparations; the acid in the juice attacks the bare aluminum and causes pitting; waxy coatings from the fruit which build up on the inside surfaces of the juicers attract dirt and mildew and are virtually impossible to remove; and finally, the pin that holds the pieces together is steel and rusts.
Although these juicers get the juice out, we're now looking for an all stainless steel model with long enough handles so it doesn't take a lot of strength to juice a lemon, and doesn't shed paint and collect crud that can't be removed.
Also, they don't give up the natural oils of the rinds in the dishwasher, and end up having to be washed by hand periodically. The small bowl shape is a real mess to try and clean. I'm going with stainless steel next time.
This is what Cook's Illustrated had to say about the similar lemon squeezer: "Surprisingly easy to use—juice gushes out. Of the squeeze-style juice presses we tested, this was the most comfortable and effective, with curved handles and a well-shaped plunger. Squeezing the rounded handles didn’t hurt our hands like others of this style, and seeds were contained. It was also attractive, sporting a bright yellow finish, but hand-washing is best if you want to keep the paint from chipping. (We tested the paint and found it lead-free.)"
And in turn, I highly recommend a subscription to www.cooksillustrated.com for all the best equipment reviews, as well as taste tests for the best ingredients, all sorts of helpful information on how to cook, videos to accompany many of their recipes, and of course an amazing recipe collection.
The unit does well in the dishwasher top shelf where I can lay it open for most effective cleaning, but sometimes I just rinse it off and it's fine. Since the size works for all the fruits I use, I've been able to get rid of the other units and simplify. I've tried several other methods for occasional squeezing of small citrus including a wood reamer, a small soft plastic pocket that the lemon or lime fits inside before hand squeezing, my hand of course and other squeezers similar to this one. None have suited me completely until I got this one. Either the seeds were a problem or I had to wash my hands following use, some units broke or were too big and awkward. This one is effective, my hands stay clean and it's easy to wash. I can finally stop my search. Highly recommended.

Fantastic product - works great. Look for the brand near the hinge - without AMCO there, it's a knock-off and not worth your money. Read morePublished 23 months ago by I.B. Miller
