I've long been a fan of lemon, lime and orange squeezers as opposed to hand-squeezing or using a reamer. For one thing, when I use a squeezer, I don't get my hands as messy. And for another thing, it's just easier. You get more juice. And no messy hands.
Oh, I already mentioned the messy-hand thing, huh?
Seriously, though, I have dry-skin issues that sometimes leads to tiny cracks ... too much hand-washing after getting my hands messy makes it worse, and getting lemon or lime juice into those cracks not only makes it worse, but it hurts like heck. So, if I can squeeze citrus without getting my hands soaked in citrus, I'm a happy camper.
I've been wanting to try one of the dual squeezers for a while. It makes sense, so when I got a chance to test one from Zulay Kitchen, I knew I had to try it. Lemons and limes are the most squeezed citrus in my house, but lemons don't fit in lime squeezers, while lemon squeezers aren't real efficient when attacking the limes.
So, a dual purpose squeezer makes a whole lot of sense. One tool can handle two types of citrus (or really, two sizes of citrus) and if you happen to need both lemons and limes, you only dirty one tool.
This would be a great stocking stuffer for anyone who cooks or who uses citrus to make drinks.
Who's it for: People who need to juice lemons and limes often enough to want a gadget to help with the task.
Pros: You only need 1 tool for 2 different types of citrus; works just like the single squeezers.
Cons: Can't think of any.
Wishes: Would be cool if it also accommodated oranges, but I a tool that handled all three might be too bulky. But still, it would be cool.
