Like many people, I used to think I could simply peel an orange, drop it into my Omega or Champion juicer and “wallah,” instant orange juice.
But to my astonishment, my juice always turned out bitter and foamy.
Though it never went to waste, I was elated when I figured out that I was supposed to use a reaming juicer to juice citrus.
Relatively a simple concept, a reamer uses a grooved, cone-shaped projectile to extract juice.
There are a range of these style of juicers on the market, including the very inexpensive hand reamer, which most people have hid away in a kitchen cabinet.
For a faster yield of your favorite a.m. OJ, try an electrical reamer.
If you are into heavy duty OJ and citrus juicing, it’s best to purchase a commercial reamer, such as Sunkiss or Waring Pro. With the commercial reamers, you can juice and entire 40-LB box of citrus in under 20 minutes.
Price Range: $5 – $800
Recommended Brands: Tribest Citristar, Breville hand citrus juicer and the commercial Waring Pro.
