The Kalorik citrus press uses a sleek simple design. After using the citrus press I discovered its amazing capabilities. The press squeezes all the juice out not allowing any to go to waste. It gives you just enough pulp to tell that it is freshly pressed but not too much to where you have more pulp than juice. Some of the features the Kalorik citrus press has is two filters, one on top of the other, to catch all the seeds and pulp from the fruit. The press has two cones included. One is for average-sized citrus fruit and the other is for larger fruit, which makes it easy to use for the fruit you have on hand. I used small clementines all the way up to grapefruit and had no problems with it. The juice goes into a convenient 32-ounce pitcher that lifts off the presser and has an easy pouring spout.
This citrus press is so easy to use my toddlers were able to use it. They watched me hold the fruit on the cones and the juicer turns on automatically. This intrigued them and made them want to try. After using the press it is a cinch to clean. You put the press in warm soapy water and dry and put it away for another day.
One feature I wish this citrus press had was that it was dishwasher safe. It is easy to clean, but for convenience it would be nice to be able to clean the parts in the dishwasher. Another disappointment (but this is not a big issue) is that you cannot run the press for more than five minutes at a time; it gets hot and needs to cool down.
This press does the job needed if you want a quick cup of juice for yourself or a couple members of the family. If you want to juice a half-gallon or more, a larger juicer would be recommended. I enjoyed the citrus press and would recommend the Kalorik to anyone who likes fresh-squeezed citrus juice anytime of the day. If you're looking for a small appliance that doesn't take up much room and is easy to use, I would get the Kalorik citrus press.
