Mexican Elbow

The Elbow Press, or a Mexican Elbow as it’s also known, is a simple but effective way of juicing citrus fruit.

It has a bowl with several holes in the bottom of it. When a citrus fruit cut in half through the spine, this allows the juice to run out freely without pulp or pips.

A half ball shaped arm then pushes down on the fruit, effectively turning it inside out, and in doing so extracts all the juice through the holes at the bottom. There are different sizes of Elbow presses for different types of citrus fruit.
