I love adding fresh citrus juice to my food and have tried many different ways to get the most juice out of lemons and limes. I’ve tried the electric models to different manual methods. What’s most important to me when it comes to kitchen tools is efficiency, that is, I want something that’s fast, easy to use, easy to clean, durable, easy to store, and most of all, does the job.

I have to say, I absolutely LOVE my new Chef’n® FreshForce™ Citrus Juicer! It was a life saver the other day when I decided to make some mango salsa and after starting a big batch, I could only find a single little lime in my refrigerator. Rats!

Normally, one lime would not suffice, but this juicer is amazing. I squeezed the lime, then rotated it around within the squeezer, squeezed again, and continued to do this until I squeezed every last ounce of juice out of this lime. WOW! And yes, I ended up with enough lime juice for my salsa!

The manufacturer states that it “produces 20% more juice than conventional hand-held juicers”. Well, I definitely found that to be true and it does so without a lot of unwanted pulp. Just like a carpenter or mechanic, when you have the right tools, your work is much more efficient, economical and enjoyable. I hand-wash my juicer as recommended by the manufacturer. FreshForce sells for $24.99.

It’ll clean the disposer, knock off the gunk that’s built up on the blades, so they keep grinding properly (it does NOT sharpen the blades), and it’ll smell oh-so-fresh! 🙂 And to get the most juice out of your lemons, here’s my latest and greatest Fit Find!  […]
