Key limes are too small for most citrus squeezers, so when we need to squeeze a lot of them, we reach for a hand-held Mexican lime juicer for easy juicing. If you’re unfamiliar with this kind of juicer, the correct way to use it might seem counterintuitive. You put a lime half in the bowl of the juicer cut side down, which looks backwards. But the shape of the bowl combined with pressure from squeezing the handles together turns the lime inside out, forcing out every last drop of juice.
