It depends on your juicing volume. We use a Sunkist J1 Commercial Electric Juicer but we juice a lot; 4 bars, dining room, 3 meals/day in a hotel. The Breville CPXL is an alternative for 1/3rd the cost; though I don't have any first-hand knowledge as to longevity. If you're squeezing grapefruits and oranges, you'll want a manual press at the very least. The Hamilton Beach 932 is the industry standard but other much less expensive options exist. The 932 is faster and easier to use but may wear out faster due to its gearsets, requiring replacement parts. Considering the minimal cost, it is imperative that you keep a hand press or two around in case your primary juicer commits harakiri. Norpro and Amco both make excellent units. For less than the cost of the Norpro, you can get both Amco's orange and lemon/lime presses.

We juice daily. We also have a centrifugal juicer for pineapple and other harder fruits/vegetables. We mix 1 part fresh pineapple juice with 3 parts canned, unsweetened, not-from-concentrate pineapple juice. Except for the fancy bars primarily, few have switched to fresh pineapple juice. The good canned stuff is generally perfectly fine.

~Good luck!

Get a lemon squeezer like this one. They are fast to use, clean up easily, extract about as much of the juice as can be, and --- no seeds. All you do is cut the lemon in half lengthwise, pop a half in, squeeze, out comes the juice but no seeds, open the squeezer over a food waste bin, and you're done. I've watched fast cooks do a half every second or two.

A citrus juicer was one of the best purchases I made.

I like this one... this is a good one!

My most recent:

I was making dinner and needed to mince some garlic so I get out my garlic press , plop the garlic in, and squeeze.... only to realize that it was indeed NOT a garlic press and in face a lemon juicer. So I mistook one of these for one of these. Yeah, I felt dumb.

My only complaint with Alton is that I feel he sort of lost his way towards the end of the series. When he recommended the huge, uni-tasking, counter-sculpture of a juicer over the much smaller, just as useful hinge juicer, I lost a lot of respect for him.

Closest to $2.00 is: [$1.29] ( from my "For Listening (mp3/albums)" wishlist. (This was definitely the hardest to find on my wishlist. I had a lot that came close to all of the other amounts.)

Closest to $4.00 is: [$3.99] ( from my $10 and under wishlist.

Closest to $6.00 is: [$6.01] ( from my "For my Puppies" wishlist.

Closest to $8.00 is: [$8.00 exactly] ( from my "$10 and Under" wishlist.

Thanks for the contest!

From Season 10: Sensational Skillet Recipes



WINNER - Electric


Black & Decker Citrus Juicer - $19.99

> With no effort, lemons were completely squeezed of all their juice. As you pressed gently, the reamer rotated in both directions to clean out the fruit half, and an adjustable pulp screen kept out seeds and let you adjust the pulp level of the juice with a simple switch. Great for bigger jobs when you want a lot of juice, but easy enough to use for just one lemon. Simple to assemble and clean.

WINNER - Manual

AMCO Houseworks Enameled Lemon Squeezer, model 06-0354 - $11.95

> 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.)

Also rated as RECOMMENDED:

  • OXO Good Grips Citrus Juicer, model 34781 - $12.99

    > Nice and easy, this juicer removed all trace of juice in each lemon half with its sharp-edged, open-sided reamer. Seeds stayed out of the juice in the collection cup, which was easy to pour. Sturdily constructed. Has many parts, including a larger reamer that’s inverted beneath the lemon reamer and hangs into the collection cup, making it harder to clean than other manual juicers.

Cocktail Kingdom is good but the quality for many pieces seems to have dropped off (e.g. broken jigger, Koriko tins and mixing glasses) That being said almost everything I use everyday is from them.

Uber has some quality products and also offers sets. Reviews say that the quality varies in the sets, but the spoon and muddler I use work well. I believe they are based in Austria as well!

I have just discovered a new website called Parched Penguin. I have not bought anything yet but am interested in their mixing glasses and many decorative pieces for special occasions.

If you are just getting started I would buy:
-Hand Juicer
-Small Tin
-Large Tin

Once you enjoy it and have mastered all of your favorite shaken drinks:
-Mixing Glass. We use these at my bar because they are cheap and can go through the dishwasher.
-Muddler. Once again dishwasher friendly and industructible.
-Bar Spoon. A cheap and effective spoon, easy to learn a proper Japanese stir.

Then comes the books...

Or just buy one of these, get far more juice, and no seeds.

u/SLOWchildrenplaying · 1 pointr/cocktails

Ah, gottcha! The ol' cheater tin.

Yeah the juicer is kinda pricey. They make cheaper variants:

This one is aluminum cast. Not as ergonomic and it hurts after juicing on a 10 hour shift. However, it certainly beats that plastic one you linked. To be honest, that plastic one is such a pain in the ass to use, you'll likely want to skip making citrus cocktails just because that thing sucks so bad! There is a special place in hell for that thing!

The cheaper one I listed is only $4.50 and comes with free shipping. You can't beat that!

This lemon/lime squeezer thing. Best $12 spent ever. It always took me forever to squeeze every drop of juice from lemons (even harder with limes), and after about 3-4 of them my hand cramped up bad. This handy device lets me get all the juice out and I waste less of the fruit and my time and energy.

u/klukins · 1 pointr/ehlersdanlos

Kosher salt dissolves easiest. If you can grind it up Sea Salt would be good as well. I'd stay away from table salt because you are drinking it in such high quantities and they add iodine (which is good in the small doses you use in cooking but not in these doses).

You can always sub limes for the lemon if the lemon gets boring. Though you'll need to use more limes and lime is harder to juice. You can also use maple syrup or agave sweetener if that taste better to you. Just make sure that it is 100% of whatever sweetener you choose and natural is better.

If you do start doing this regularly one of these is a solid investment. It cuts the time and effort in half at least.

I use one of these electric juicers if I need enough citrus juice for more than a few drinks. It has two different sized heads for large and small citrus, plus you can adjust how much pulp gets through. I've had no problems at all with it after about two years of use. Otherwise, I just use the basic hand juicer. I have two different sizes and have had no problems with any of the enamel chipping off.

As for pineapple, you'll need a serious electric juicer (one where you throw the fruit in the top) with a large pulp collector, or just use the small cans of unsweetened, non-from-concentrate juice.

u/moderatorrater · 0 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

Most juicers are made so that you don't have to peel it.

/u/OliverBabish, there are tools for squeezing lemons my dude!
