It’s In The Bag: Silicone Lemon Squeezer Pouch

The Silicone Lemon Squeezer Pouch from Kitchen Allure

The Silicone Lemon Squeezer Pouch from Kitchen Allure has nothing to hide (except lemons). The name says it all: You slice a lemon, put it in the pouch and squeeze. The seeds stay in the silicone pouch, while the freshly squeezed lemon juice pours through little strainer holes onto waiting food or drinks below. Adding a splash of citrus is sure to brighten up faces of eaters and drinkers alike — and this time not from getting citrus in the eye!

Fish and lemon cocktail?

Fish Lemon Squeezer

While to some it may be somewhat disconcerting to have a fish spit in their drink, others apparently find the prospect quite appetizing. If you’re using the (Fish) Lemon Squeezer and you find your Lemon Drop cocktail a bit fishy tasting, well, I think you know what to blame. Of course, there’s no actual fish involved with this stainless steel, dishwasher safe citrus squeezer, but I don’t think looking at that engraved fish on the side would do anything for my aperitif. Perhaps that’s why this new squeezer is already on sale for $5.00. Get ‘em now, while they last.

When life gives you lemons, make lemon wedges

Citrus Wedger

Sure, you could do as the old saying suggests and make lemonade, but why stop there? Lemon wedges are totally the way to go. Besides being convenient and versatile, they have the added benefit of being a delicious ingredient in many an adult beverage. Save the lemonade for the kiddies, and give life a kick right back in the pucker.

Easily slice and divide lemons and other citrus fruit into uniform slices with the Citrus Wedger from Williams-Sonoma. Accommodating fruits up to 2.75-inches in diameter, the kitchen gadget creates six wedges with one simple motion. No matter how many lemons you may have hanging around, a handy device such as this makes prepping them that much easier.

UPDATE 6/30/12: The link from Williams-Sonoma no longer works, so check out the Norpro Lemon Lime Slicer instead. Four-and-a-half stars and less than ten bucks!

Squeeze out the lemon seeds

Silicone Lemon Squeezer

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, so the saying goes. I consider that a knock against lemons. Lemons are delicious and have never done anyone any harm. Lemon seeds however, are awful and deserve to be banished.

With this Silicone Lemon Squeezer, you can keep your drinks and recipes deliciously seed-free. The flexible device keeps juice off of your hands while filtering out seeds and pulp. Easily washes off by flipping inside out and running under warm water. However, if life seems to be treating you to more seeds than juice lately, the silicone squeezer is dishwasher safe for a thorough cleaning.

Produce Savers look the part

Produce Savers: Apple Saver by Evriholder Products

Produce doesn’t always come in convenient sizes. Sometimes, we just need a bite. Whether you just need a few slices of tomato for a sandwich or want half of an apple as a snack, the unused portion needs to be stored for later use.

Produce Savers by Evriholder Products are a set of specifically (very specific) designed gadgets for saving and storing common produce. Available in five distinct styles, the produce savers work by protecting the produce from surrounding air. Place your fruit or vegetable cut side down, and clip to hold in place. The lack of contact to air helps to prevent browning and keep the produce clean.

The produce savers are certainly fanciful creations, and at $3.99 each (looks like they were pretty popular at that price!), they are definitely affordable. And fun too. The Cucumber Saver looks like a cucumber, and the Lemon Saver perfectly imitates the shape of a lemon. Click on through for pictures of the whole set, including the Onion Saver as well as a Tomato Saver. And of course, don’t forget the Apple Saver.
