    Chef'n Juicester Available at Amazon for only $15 and made by Unicahome, this citrus kitchen gadget has received 4.5 out of 5 stars in its customer reviews.

    This juicer’s motto reads, “Juicing up the world of citrus,” and it’s easy to make the juices that are your favorites. Its sharpened top edges cut into the fruit and work nicely with the lower rounded edges to capture the juice easy in one easy step. It comes with an easy measurement guide that offers up cups, millimeters, ounces, and even tablespoons and teaspoons - perfect for measuring the right amount of juice for recipes. As one Amazon reviewer put is, the Chef’n Juicester can go “From happy hour margaritas to the next morning's orange juice!” A great kitchen gadget for those on a budget.
