Vintage orange juicer

Actually, what more can I say?  It's a circa 1950s orange juicing device.  

It's also the most efficient orange juice I've ever used - and I've used a few in my day.  Very easy to squeeze and more importantly, it's super fast to clean.

first we slice the orange into quarters
place each quarter in the juicer and sqeeze

the juice is collected in a reservoir, as you can see when I remove the strainer
and there we go, one orange worth of juice.
Not much, I know, but it was really the wrong kind of orange for this.

  1. I used one of these when I had a live-in babysitting job back in the mid 1960's, and I was amazed at how well it worked. Oh, what wouldn't I give to have one now. My husband's diet requires a daily dose of lemonade and that made from real lemons is best. Squeezing them is a pain.
