Lemon juice squeezer – a time saver in the kitchen!

While you can eat out and still stay healthy, it costs a small fortune to eat at those places that cater to organic fruits and vegetables and pasture-raised animals. So, unless you are well off financially and want you and your family to get and stay healthy, you really do need to spend some time in the kitchen. And most of us may enjoy cooking, or not, but we do not want to spend all day in the kitchen.

To that end, I have some tools in my kitchen that definitely make my life easier.

One of my favorites is the Amco Houseworks lemon juicer. You just cut a lemon in half, put half cut side up in the well and squeeze the top part down.

Why do I like it so much?

  • It’s bright yellow color makes it easy to locate in my kitchen drawer.
  • As described above, it is very easy to use.
  • The holes in the bottom of the squeezer allow the juice to flow out but not the seeds.
  • It is easy to wash and can even go on the top rack of the dishwasher.

I prefer fresh lemon juice in my recipes. This little, inexpensive kitchen tool provides the juice quickly and efficiently with little clean up to follow and no seeds.

Where to get one?

I bought mine in the grocery store for $9.99. They are also available on Amazon.

Let me know what you think!
