Tool Tip: Citrus Press

I've been using this for a couple of months now - it extracts a lot more juice from both lemons and limes. It helps, especially with limes which are harder to juice anyway, to score the skin partway in three or four places. The bowl is a bit small for oranges but works in a pinch.

[2/06 And the good folks at Too Many Chefs prove a citrus juicer's worth through scientific testing!]

It's a handy complement to a microplane which is a whiz way to piles of fluffy zest.

Both are keepers in my book, er, utensil drawer.
