The OXO Good Grips Wooden Turner is made of a solid piece of beech wood with a large, comfortable handle and a natural oil finish. Safe for non-stick cookware
Despite all the bright-colored, high-tech silicone kitchen utensils out these days, theres nothing quite like the good old-fashioned feel of wood for cooking needs. Crafted from solid beech wood, this 14-inch turner is long enough to keep hands away from oil or heat, making it ideal for flipping flapjacks or keeping potstickers from sticking. While the gently curved head thins to a straight edge, the give of wood means the edge is safe for nonstick cookware. A natural oil finish protects the wooden turner and wont contaminate food.
True to OXOs creed of designing products that are easy to use for the widest range of cooks, the handle, which is flat on top and sensuously curved underneath, comfortably fits the hand. A hole in the end allows the turner to hang where its most needed. Set in a crock, the turner forms a handsome bouquet with OXOs other wooden utensils, such as mixing spoons, slotted spoons, and a spaghetti server. Wooden utensils are best washed by hand. OXO backs all its products with a satisfaction warranty, and will replace or refund any returned item. --Ann Bieri

But I bought this reamer based on the reviews and I have to say, it's earned its place in our cluttered kitchen. It's true that it's not really that difficult to just cut a lemon in half and squeeze out the juice with your bare hand. But boy, this reamer makes it even easier! Just seconds is all you need. Plus, easy to clean (because let's face it, when you're as lazy as I am, sometimes you don't want to use a gadget that takes more time cleaning than it saves you using--I'm thinking of you, garlic crusher!). I just rinse it under the faucet. Plus, it's kinda fun. A good way to release a little aggression while making some delicious lemonade.
One thing I noticed though is that the wood is not completely smooth. If you run your finger against the reamer part, in the direction of base to tip, you can feel bits of the wood splinters. That concerned me a bit at first but it has not caused any problem that I could notice. I think it could potentially be an issue if you scrubbed too hard on this.
The particular shape of this cone is effective, handle easy to grasp, sharp point to dig into the lemon/lime, and nice deep troughs. But, BEST of all, the wooden edges are sharp and seem like they'll stay that way for a long time.
To get the most juice out of a reluctant lime or lemon, I still rely on something else before reaming: Stab a couple of tiny holes in the rind (so the fruit won't explode); stick it in the micro for a minutes or less, and then roll it hard back and forth on the counter to break up the tissues inside. The good old dinner fork still works well in a pinch!
