Affordable juicer for large or small jobs

When I was running the restaurant many years ago I had the good fortune of working with Laura Mack, our pastry chef.  We were constantly sharing tips and shortcuts with each other.  She introduced me to the juicer pictured.

I will quite often rely on a small hand reamer.  But that's only good for a tablespoon or two of juice.  If I need more than that I pull out the electric machine and with hardly any effort am able to juice as much as I need.

As my husband and I became empty nesters I've resorted to this small citrus juicer for fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juice.  I could never afford one of those expensive juicers and quite honestly they look like a lot of trouble to clean and I do not like dissembling and cleaning machines.  So this juicer is perfect for the two of us and quite frankly I think it would accomodate a family of four just as well.

These juicers can be found on the kitchen equipment aisle at the grocery store.  In fact just last week I saw them on the aisle and they are still only 19.99.  They are too good to be true.  I store mine in a drawer closeby because it gets used so frequently.  Juice oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit.  One reminder -  fruit yields more juice when it is at room temperature.
