Rabbiit Citrus Juicer by Metrokane
Cheap reproduction to save money
This is not the juicer it once was! I had one of these for years pretty much just for squeezing limes and it worked over 10 years. Built to last; solid! This one has been value engineered...value for profits...not for consumer. I have serious doubts it will last for a few months and the gear mechanism was rusty before first use. Sad to have ruined a good product just to make a few more dollars.

Does not work
This is the 4th request for a review that I have filled in.
The juicer is still in the box, Because It Does Not Work.
I placed a lemon, then an orange into the space and it will not push down enough to
get Juice. No amount of force will make the top squeeze down.

Nice product but....
I ordered this juicer and it arrived within a few days. It's stainless steel which is a big plus. After giving the juicer a good cleaning, I set out to squeeze some oranges. This did not work out as I planned.
The unit is short and the space into which the citrus fits is not very tall, so the large oranges I purchased didn't fit very well. I purchased a bag of smaller oranges and tried my luck with those with similar results.
I discovered that the short stature of this unit is a disadvantage because it offers a short throw for the handle resulting in a need to press even harder as well as rotate the cup which holds the fruit. (the cup fits loosely)
This brings me to cleanup after use: The removable cup is easy to clean, but the stationary top portion is not.
After giving my new juicer a fair shake, I decided to return it to my nearby store.
Overall, dealing with Bed Bath & Beyond is a pleasure, including their return process. Other purchases from this retailer have been fine with me. I'll continue to shop with them.

I like the look but am not thrilled with the results. The lime has to be ever so perfectly placed
So the juicer can close correctly . I would like to suggest that the top center section
To be able to maximize the squeeze.....also juice squeezed out onto the counter after
Having to quarter an orange..
Being a rabbit product, I expected it to be a really good product.

This product didn't (couldn't) even squeeze a lime
Couldn't fit in anything larger than a small lemon and it didn't apply pressure in a way that produced juice. Waste of money & time.

Just what I wanted, except that it didn't work. Too small for anything bigger than the smallest orange. So make do with runt oranges and lemons? Can't do that because the mechanism doesn't even squeeze. You have to buy one to believe this is so so bad. Perhaps you'll end up with my returned one. It's a lemon, but you won't be able to squeeze it!

Poorly designed; cone-part going into the fruit seems to be ineffective; does not extract all the juice; insufficient leverage in the handle; a kind of lightweight attempt at a juicer, which should be more heavy duty than this light little thing.

I placed the orange in the machine and the handle was stuck. The handle remained up and I could not conpress the orange.
