Is it a spider? Is it a rocket ship? No it’s the Juicy Salif Citrus Juicer! … Eh? Yes it does look pretty confusing and hard to believe but this weird 3 pronged metal thing with a big bulb really is a juicer.
You’re probably wondering how on earth it works. Well, it’s pretty simple actually.
Just place a glass or a small bowl in between the 3 prongs and underneath the big bulb (which is actually the citrus-squeezer), get your squeezable fruit that’s been cut in half and place at the top of the squeezer. Then press down whilst squeezing and watch the juice from your fruit flow down the grooves of the squeezer and into your glass! Voila, you’ve got fruit juice!
This juicer was geniusly designed by Philippe Starck (no not the Starks from Game of Thrones or Tony Stark aka Iron Man even if it sounds the same!) for Alessi even though he had asked for a tray. The juicer sits pretty high standing on its 3 legs but it’s designed to be at a comfortable height for juicing so there’s less strain on your arms overall.
Made from mirror-polished aluminium cast alloy, this juicer is easy to wash with just a rinse but not safe in the dishwasher so don’t do that. Its unique design looks so great that it will look better left out on your countertops like a piece of usable art sculpture rather than hidden away inside a cupboard.
Anyone who comes to your kitchen will definitely see it and be asking about it. It’ll give your kitchen a much cooler look.
