OXO Good Grips® Citrus Squeezer
I could not believe that an OXO product could be so disappointing! This citrus squeezer was absolutely pathetic when confronted with limes. They were just crushed by the OXO and very little juice came out. Like Gardenopus, I got more juice out by hand squeezing the remains, a frustrating process, especially because it was such hard work even using the OXO squeezer. Don't waste your money; get the two-in-one squeezer and let OXO know they did not get this one right at all!

I used one of these at our time-share in Cancun and could hardly wait to get home and order one. The best thing that ever happened to my salsa.

A Poor Imitation of the Classic Original
Normally I’m a big fan of OXO products and I own plenty – but in this case, after returning a classic Mexican-made citrus squeezer – the familiar age-old design but unfortunately the paint on the painted version had begun to peel – I opted to spend the extra dollar in change to try the OXO “emulated” version and purchased an additional as a gift for a friend. I could tell immediately upon first use that extra pressure was needed – and the dimpled design forces contact of the opposing plates away from the pulp so that each lime half is not completely squeezed. I make fresh stevia limeade and lemonade frequently, and using 12 limes plus water for a half gallon, I was curious to see how much additional juice I could recover from a lime half just by hand squeezing after the OXO product performed so poorly. I was able to recover ½ tablespoon per lime half – thus 12 TABLESPOONS OR ¾ CUP WOULD HAVE BEEN WASTED had I not hand squeezed each AFTER using the OXO. And the limes I tested (and photographed as I tested) were neither the largest nor juiciest, so more waste than what I experienced is definitely possible. Any product that wastes valuable food is a big thumbs-down for me. I will be returning both to the store tomorrow and if only the painted version is available, paint issues or no, I will opt for the classic model. This is a bad product from the design up – from an otherwise good manufacturer.

Does exactly what it should. Pits remain in unit.
It is a great little tool.

love how this fits my hand and doesn't slip! Also, no enamel to peel off.

Hooray for Margaritas!
Got this off our wedding registry, and I love it. I was worried that it would be difficult to squeeze or that juice would go everywhere, but, provided you have a steady hand, it's easy to use and the juice goes where you want it to! Easy to clean as well.
