A Juicy New Twist

William Abranowicz

Now, here's our idea of a great kitchen appliance: It uses no electricity, has no parts to break, costs almost nothing, is available in virtually every supermarket or hardware store in America, and needs no instruction manual. It starts perfectly every time, with the flick of a wrist, and is made from natural material that just gets better with time and use. It's the wooden citrus reamer. Cutting a lemon (or lime or orange) in half, applying the reamer, and giving it a twist is deeply satisfying. It's the perfect tool for the job. Not only does it give you lots of juice—it also perfumes your hands with fragrant citrus oils.
