It is hard to find someone who doesn’t love the taste of freshly squeezed orange juice. What you get from the store in a box or bottle never compares with what you can make at home. In most cases, bottles and boxes of juice are already weeks or even months old by the time you take it off the shelf, and it never tastes as good as the picture on the box looks. It is actually really easy to make orange juice at home, and with so many oranges readily available to buy at supermarket everywhere around the world, there really is no excuse for not having an orange juicer at home.
While most people are content with using simple mechanisms for extracting the juice of oranges and other citrus fruits, these little gadgets aren’t enough for me. The reason why is because I have a large family, and when I make juice, I need to make enough for 6 or more people at a time. Rather than spend an hour hunched over pressing oranges, I chose to get a commercial orange juicer. For about 100 dollars, you can get a large unit that sits right on the counter and juices oranges quickly and easily. This type has an arm that you pull down to press the juice out of whatever you put in there.
Due to the laws of physics, you don’t actually need to press very hard at all to extract the juice from an orange. Even the weakest of people should be able to operate this type of machine. Once you cut your oranges in half, all you need to do is simply place each half into the pressing cup and pull the handle down. Within minutes, you can make enough juice for an entire family. You can even use them for any other type of citrus as well, like limes, lemons, or grapefruits. One final note is that although orange juice always tastes best right after you squeeze it, you can easily juice enough for a couple of days and put the rest in the mini bar fridge to drink later.
