A hideously cheesy image, but it gets across the point of this beauty, instantly. The best gadget this Christmas – in our household anyway – takes the form of an amazing little spray pump you plunge straight into a real lemon. As if by magic, you are instantly imbued with the power to squirt juice directly from the fruit (and I’m not talking about a feeble dribble, but a proper spray).
I am not sure I have ever wanted to possess the ability to be able to do this, but it works so brilliantly and is so strangely pleasing to use that I have come over all domestic (it’s also great for spritzing into a G&T).
Not a pip in sight and no chopping board or knife needed. Just shove this:
in to any part of the lemon…and hey presto.
(As I wasn’t the lucky recipient of this wonder product, I’ve since ordered one and can tell you that it’s called ‘Stem’ and is made by Quirky. It costs £6.99/$14).
