That's a sweet cartoon site! I've been following it for a while. Not much tiki there though...

That's a beauty, tikiskip. I have a modern one that pales in comparison. And the hand juicers are nice if you have to make one, maybe two drinks. Beyond that, however, this is my go to:

This one, however, is what I REALLY want.

Make a batch of 10-20 painkillers and juice by hand, and you'll understand how important a motorized one is.

For limes maybe, but for oranges, unless you actually want a pulp filled drink, no.

We were gifted an electric juicer. Used it once and went back to manual.

I use m y fancy aluminum crank juicer with smaller navel oranges and it works great.

Here is what I recommend for the big jobs. I got one similar at a thrift store for $10 and it has made life easier. Best for limes, but smaller navel oranges will work too.

Also, be sure if you do get an electric or other juicer it has the larger top or an attachment to make the top bigger to accommodate large oranges and grapefruit. If it just lime sized, it will make you crazy working with bigger fruit.

Works for me (the link). And I don't have a problem with pulp with that particular juicer. Just set it to the no pulp setting. You juice it without the lid, then use the lid to really get the last of the juice from the pulp.

Maybe I'll have to make a video. I'm telling you, I swear by this over my hand press. Though the hand press is nice, and less annoying while entertaining.

This used to be my go-to, until I lost the seed trap, rendering it useless. If only I could find a replacement... Since then however, I've switched to a CitriStar, and can't imagine anything beating a good electric reamer

I let that one go - it was just too easy to make some sort of follow-up remark!

I pity the future TC'er or Googler who runs into this thread for serious research purposes.

"Tiki Central... Let's not go there; it is a silly place."

Ha...

Please, by all means, fire away! Reamer? Why I hardly know her!

Just ran into the aforementioned "fancy-ass" juicer being sold at the Publix supermarket about a mile south of the Mai-Kai on US Federal Highway 1. Cost was $18.99 and they had it in several colors. I remember both yellow and white.

I think the white one is for cauliflower. I seem to remember hearing that the green one works well with broccoli.

I have both the "Fancy-Ass" juicer and another - a "Normal-Ass" juicer in stainless steel. Admittedly, the "Fancy-Ass" does extract slightly more juice, but you have to start it using two hands (Unless you're a Gorilla) and then get it to where you can use one hand as the extra ratchet mechanism forces the handles very far apart initially, but does allow extra pressure to extract slightly more juice from your lemmon or lime. Nonetheless, I'm satisfied with both hand held juicers.

Both require two hands - one to hold the tool and one to insert the lime and close the juicer. But on the fancy ratcheted tool you continue closing and begin squeezing the fruit all in the same motion. I also find it very helpful that the ratcheted tool has slightly larger handles than the other less-expensive versions. I agree that for squeezing small amounts of limes both tools work just fine, although I don't use the smaller versions at all anymore.
