We have an impressive collection of citrus juicing tools in the test kitchen, from fancy electric ones to simple hand reamers. But recently, when I was juicing dozens of lemons for the lemon desserts in this issue, the juicer I reached for most often was this Oxo Good Grips model. It’s low-tech but cleverly designed, with a couple of very useful features: Small and large reamers are built opposite each other in one piece, so to go from juicing lemons to oranges, all you have to do is flip the reamer part over— no rooting around in drawers to find the extra reamer part. The cup below the reamer is marked with measures so you don’t need to transfer the juice to a seperate measuring cup-a simple, obvious detail that’s inexplicably missing from lots of other juicers.
