Do you know what the object pictured to the left is? It’s called a reamer, and it can help busy chefs complete their recipes quickly. It can also yield more juice than old-fashioned manual juice extractors like the ones pictured below, which saves money.
This type of manual juice squeezer costs between $2-8, and is usually found in grocery store aisles or in budget home goods stores. It yields about half the amount of juice from a ripe lemon as the reamer does. The reamer's sharp tip and grooved design allows chefs to quickly press all the juice a lemon, or other citrus fruit, can yield.
Reamers can be purchased for as little as $5.99 on Amazon.com. When you order yours, be sure to pop over to the book section and check out our Easy Weekly Meals ecookbook series. The books give you plenty of recipes that call for use of a reamer!
