Tip of the Day - How to "Beat" a Lemon!



I own 1067 kitchen gadgets - I take that back. I thought I owned 1067 kitchen gadgets. I am down to 1066 gadgets. In the process of our move I misplaced my juicer. I needed it the other day to make a citrus vinaigrette and looked high and low for that thing. Before I spent too much time looking for it, I rooted around for some other way to get that golden juice from its comfy home. Ah ha! I saw my beater in the drawer and thought I would give it a try.



A few twists of the hand and that baby was empty! It worked so well - I decided I will stay with my current collection of 1066 gadgets. I won't be replacing the juicer!

Yikes, that is a great tip. In the last forty years I have had several hand held beaters "bite the dust" I always saved the "beater blades" in hopes they might be interchangeable with the next appliance. So, I now have a rather large collection of LEMON
SQUEEZERS - (only once were my beaters interchangeable). Hey, I am excited!!!

What a great tip!! My juicer just broke on me, and I was thinking I'd need to buy a new one. Now, I'm just going to reach for my beater! Thanks! :)

This really is a pretty fabulous idea... and it might save me $5 or so... I was contemplating buying a citrus reamer :)

This is the best tip I've seen in a while! My juicer/reamer is not easy to use; this would be so much easier! Great idea!

Lo and Paula - ...and who really has room in their draws for another utensil? Glad you liked the idea!

Just saw your tip in my Chef's Tip widget and had to come right over and tell you how brilliant this is!!!
I have a tiny kitchen and can't afford having all sorts of gadgets lying around because there's simply not enough space.
