Brilliant Hacks To Get The Maximum Amount Of Juice From A Lemon & Lime

Cooks both humble and great are constantly trying to figure out how to get the most juice out of lemons and limes. Why? Because they add so much freaking flavor to everything and are endlessly useful in cooking. Sometimes, it’s even a matter of squeezing the most out of your money.

As someone who loves to spend time in the kitchen, I am constantly on the lookout for amazing food hacks that will make my cooking even easier.

So when I saw this fast and easy way to get way more juice out of a single lemon, I knew that it would quickly become one of my favorite hacks.

Using a handheld juicer to get fresh lemon juice can take a very long time, especially for someone like me who loves to make a big batch of lemonade. But this hack cuts that time down significantly by getting a surprisingly large amount of juice from each and every lemon.

This video shows how to get the most from your lemon with a free and easy food hack that only takes 20 extra seconds. All you need are a microwave and your handheld juicer. This is so simple that I can’t believe I didn’t know about it before!


It turns out that there’s been a method out there courtesy of the citrus companies themselves that help you get out all the juice with no special tools at all. The trick is in how you cut that bad boy.


Special Slicing Equals More Juice

Simply cut away all the sides of a lime or lemon and leave an oblong in the center. Keep in mind that though the image above shows a box of grapefruit, the technique applies to all citrus fruits.


Step-by-Step Instructions—From a Real Chef

Chef Heidi Fink also gives great step-by-step instructions on how to maximize the juice a lime gives with this method.

First, hold the lime lengthwise and cut off one side, then rotate the lime a quarter turn and make another cut. Continue rotating the lime a quarter turn and making cuts until you’re left with four side pieces and one long rectangular piece from the center.

Hold each of the side pieces over a shallow, wide-mouthed bowl owel.
