The Cuinsart Citrus Juice is great for small citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes. It gets almost all of the fruit out of the rind and it produces a larger amount of juice than compared to a hand juicer. It stays in place nicely on your counter because it has rubberized feet. The brushed nickel finish also makes it look like a highly quality appliance.
From the smallest lime to the largest grapefruit, the brushed stainless steel Cuisinart Citrus Juicer gets out more juice more efficiently. An adjustable auto-reversing reamer features “custom” pulp control settings, and the unique Final-Spin feature maximizes the amount of juice from each piece of fruit. The Cuisinart Citrus Juicer has dishwasher-safe parts that makes cleanup a breeze.
How to Use the Cuisinart Citrus Juicer
To get the most of your Cuisinart Citrus Juicer, slice fruit in half. Press the fruit down firmly on top of juicer. Lift up momentarily and the juicer reverses the direction for better juicing. After about 15 to 30 seconds, your fruit half is completely juiced. Nothing will be left inside but the rind. The juice drains out the front spout. After juicing about a pound of fruit, you have to use the “final spin” feature, by putting the cover on and pressing the whole unit down. This activates a dryer-like spin cycle and squeezes lots of remaining juice from the pulp. There is almost no fruit left inside the rind after it juices it so there is no waste.
Here’s an example of what you can expect to get from the Cuisnart Citrus Juicer. Two oranges will get you about 16 oz. of orange juice, which is two cups. It does depend on the size of your oranges. And as an added note, room temperature fruit yields more juice.
To Cleanup: take the cover, juicer, and juice catcher off. Rotate the juicer part to separate it. Rinse off all pieces and toss them in the dishwasher. Cleanup is quick and easy! You can even take it all apart, rinse, and toss it in the dishwasher. No problems whatsoever.
