Ergonomic design : Place half of a lemon in the squeezer with the cut side facing down or facing up. If putting the lemon in with the cut side facing up, simply cut off the end of the lemon to allow juice to be squeezed out the bottom. If the cut side is facing down, squeezing the handles together inverts the lemon peel for effective extraction. Less foam than the electric squeezing machine! Side spout provides control while pouring. It’s designed to be placed on a flat surface for use, which helps to ensure the stability and leverage needed for thorough juicing. Bottom feet prevent tipping or slipping around prep areas.
