Two events prompted this post. Two weeks ago I went on a Bertrand Goldberg architectural tour. Two buildings in Chicago, four owners, all architects. Of interest, all four interiors might have been designed by one person, the furnishings were so similar, mid-century modern. Two of the four had the Salif on sparse kitchen counters. Our galley kitchen falls into the latter category. Anyone’s guess what kitchen tools were in their cupboards. The other event, we made grouper ceviche last weekend, an on-going experiment with different recipes so precise citrus measurements are required. We also have a juicer made for cooking, the OXO Citrus Juicer with a measuring cup as its recepticle. I purchased it directly from OXO when it won a design award in 2007.

Below are promising juicers selected with the following criteria: simple, manual or small electric that’s easily stored, lightweight output, and well-thought-out solutions with great aesthetics. Several in are in the collection of contemporary art museums. Several will have glitches, like the Salif, no problem for me but to Barbara it can behave like a sobriety test; the Orangin and Flash Lemonade Juicer can be a bit labor intensive to fill a quart IMO. Price range from $8 > $100.
