From the World of Uber-Expensive, Ultimately Useless, But Really Convenient Gadgets (Williams-Sonoma for short) comes the Press Art lemon and lime squeezer.
Imagine this: You’re hosting your annual $4500 a plate dinner for Socially Challenged Purebred Poodles. The food is hot and pricey and fancy. You can tell because it’s the type of stuff that has at least three names and always tastes better with fresh squeezed lemon. Like, really fresh squeezed. Of course, you want your guests to feel involved, so you give everyone their own lemon slices and let them at it. Unfortunately your men have diamond cufflinks, and your ladies are wearing Bedazzled silk gloves, so juicing a lemon the standard way is a no go.
Enter Press Art and their admittedly gorgeous citrus squeezers. Made of acid-impervious, BPA-free, “almost unbreakable” Copolyester, the little plastic doohickey is dishwasher safe, and comes with a built-in spout for easy juice distribution. Plus, it makes your lemons 50 percent more efficient, so you’re saving money in the (really) long run. The spout also makes it easy to pour lime juice directly into your Corona, meaning it’s an all-around winner in my book. Other features include the potential for personalized engravings and the fact that it’s made in France. France.
Press Art Lemon & Lime Squeezer $8.95 – $12.95 for one or a set of 2 for $15.99 @Amazon
