Years ago I bought this white pitcher/juicer and it's been a staple in our kitchen ever since. We use it to make lemontinis on Saturday night and fresh orange juice on Sunday mornings.

Beautiful and functional makes it completely perfect.

Isn't it wonderful to find beauty in function? I love its simplicity ... and its usefulness. Enjoy.

I just wish I had a place for something that handy and useful, but alas and alack, I don't. Happy Sunday, dear one.

Nothing like fresh squeezed. My plastic short one is falling apart. I need to find something similar.

Very nice. I can practicaly smell the lemons and oranges from here. It probably won't surprise you to know that I have a few of those in green depression glass. ;)

My Mom had a "juicing" implement similar to that, but it didn't have a pitcher underneath. (We're talking 1950's here!) It didn't get used very often. There were 4 children and 2 adults in the house so that required a lot of hand-labor to make enough juice for all of us. As we got older, we helped out, but it was still a special occasion that only happened a couple of times a year when the oranges were at their juiciest! Enjoyed seeing the picture; I hadn't thought about our fresh squeezed juice in years!
