Citrus Spritzer

Published May 1, 2013. From Cook's Illustrated.

A fine citrus mist has never been easier to coax from your favorite fruit.

Overview:

At first glance, this citrus spritzer looked a little silly to us, but when you need just a squirt of lemon juice for finishing fish, shellfish, vegetables, or sauces, this tool is a surprisingly efficient alternative to a citrus juicer. About 3 inches long, it looks like the plastic pump from the top of a spray bottle. All you do is stick it into a lemon—no peeling or knife work needed. Within seconds after inserting it, we were releasing a fine, even mist of juice without the bother of fishing out seeds released in the process. It gave us 10 to 12 full sprays per insertion—and if that’s all you want, the rest of the fruit can be stored in the fridge for later use.
