Nor Pro Stainless Steel Citrus Press Juicer. 18/10 Stainless steel. Beautiful finish and professional weight. Extra long handles give you more leverage. Maximum juice extraction with minimal effort. Squeeze every last drop effortlessly.
Whether you're whipping up a batch of fresh cocktails or exploring ethnic cuisine, citrus is an essential ingredient for every home kitchen. Much easier to operate than the traditional hand-held juicer, this compact citrus press is the ideal tool for squeezing lemons, limes, and oranges. Made from gleaming 18/10 stainless steel in a professional weight, it extracts more juice in less time thanks to extra-long handles. Small holes allow juice to flow while filtering out pulp and seeds. When you're done squeezing, the Nor Pro Citrus Press cleans up easily in the dishwasher. --Mary Park
Top customer reviews
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.
**** Update 8/4/2016. Still have it, still using the squeeze one side, put the second half in, put the first one on top the unsqueezed one and squeeze them both method, deflection in handles not increasing - but I think next I need to give someone a gift idea for me a new one will be a good choice for them. 11 years of service - worked out to be a great value.
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.
One selling point for me was that it was said that it is solid stainless steel. Look, these are the words of people who actually purchased and experienced these products, not just marketing verbiage. Well, the manufacturer's verbiage does not say "solid stainless steel", so I'll put that on the table as my fault as to not do EXTRA research.
So, when the juicer arrived, I excitedly ripped the box open to expose the juicer. I'll have to say that I was excited that "It's HERE!" and that my old aluminum one had broken, and supposedly it was/is better than my previous one. I was a bit disappointed because it did not have the weight of "solid stainless steel" like another reviewer had mentioned. It also "clanged" like it was "hollow". After closer inspection, it is made from heavy gauge, "possibly" stainless steel sheet metal, not a solid cast which we would be led to believe from many reviews here. Albeit, the welding and blending quality is exquisite, which could lead anyone to believe it is solid, but believe me, it is not.
I took it for a test drive and it definitely works better than the aluminum juicers, but not as solid as I would like. I can feel that it eventually will deform after some time. It definitely does not feel like the "buy it once and never have to buy another one" feel to it.
The process for squeezing juice with this squeezer is like someone else said, counter intuitive. The lemon/lime/orange half goes in the opposite way that it would naturally fit. Yes, this way prevents juices from spraying out the sides for the most part, but what tends to happen is the cut-sides of the lemons/limes/oranges tend to fold into itself, preventing full extraction. I've also tried to cut the edges to help prevent the folding, but it still happens. Dropping the fruit in "backwards" seems to work better, which the juicing half would tend to split the peel and have better extraction, but then that would defeat the purpose of the drain holes at the bottom. The bottom line is that perhaps the bowl is too small, even for small limes.
I still give this product 4 out of 5 stars because it is "better" made than the cheap aluminum ones you can buy for $10, but don't believe that this is made from solid stainless steel. Is it worth $20? Sure, I think so, but I know it won't be the last $20 I send on a juicer for sure. I'm still in pursuit of a "SOLID" stainless steel juicer. If anyone finds one, please leave me a comment.
=========== UPDATE (04-21-2014) ==========
A year later, it's still going strong. No rust, no signs that it's going to break any time soon. This was a good buy.
