when i make ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Golden Dream Wedding Cake (page 397), i need A LOT of lemon juice. here is a handy tool:
Growing up in Peru, I’ve been squeezing limes since i was 3 y.o. Lime juice is an essential ingredient in Peru, with limonada, moliente, ceviche, salsa criolla, ensalada rusa, arroz blanco, cazuela, aguadito, ensalada de lechuga a la juliana, pie de limon, pisco sour, merengues, cocadas, etc. (I no longer write translations because you can google it).
I own just about every lime juicer that have been invented. Yesterday, I decided to give the New Metro Juice Lab a chance. I was very skeptical because it “looks” like a simple citrus reamer with the addition of what appears to be additional parts to clean: a strainer, a lid, and a beaker.
The manufacturer describes the beaker as handy to catch and store the juice. The beaker doubles as a sturdy base, comfortable and ergonomic. The strainer catches seeds and pulp. I agree, but honestly, I wasn’t sold with these features because all my other lime juicers are also easy to use. My Dad has been collecting lime juicers for decades.
What sold me is what I felt when I used the Juice Lab! There was zero mess, no splashing, no squirts on your face, and no seeds flying off. Take a close look at the grotesque grooves in the reamer. The grooves catch the seeds with precision, and directing the juice to the beaker.
You have to try it for yourself as it is almost like telling someone exactly how you want to juice a lime. It works for lemons and small oranges too. Here are the pictures. The seeds and the juice are where they belong!!!
