Ahhh! But this baby is my favorite! I also bought the larger one, but found it unwieldy and hard to store. The baby one is perfect all around ...
BUT ... you have to utilize a couple of hints that the company doesn't tell you about. Call them Old Cooks hints if you will (bcuz I am old, LOL).
# 1 - Zest the skin. (Dry it then store - waste nothing, I say)
# 2 - Microwave the lemons first ( 1/2 min per lemon )
# 3 - Roll them on the counter (releases more juice)
Now juice them. They just ooze juice with very little pressure.

If you don't want to zest them ... then at least use those lemon peels
to make Preserved Lemons ! !

If you don't want to make Preserved Lemons or zest ... cut them into thin long slices and freeze the lot of them ... and use as needed for MARTINI's ! (heart-be-still)

although i own a plug in spinning reamer i still prefer my IKEA hand reamer, it just is such a nice fit to my hand and it takes less time to do it by hand than to haul out the power one and then wash it and put it away. my hand reamer i just throw it in the dishwasher and im done

If you really want a decent juicer of this style, you'll need to hit a restaurant/food service supply place.

I worked in a place for over 6 years where we did fresh squeezed lemonade, also doing them for festivals. There were days I squeezed over 1000 lemons.

They're typically around $150-200, a chunk of change, but if you're serious about lemon/lime/orange juicing, they're great.
