My sister taught me this quick and easy  tip when juicing lemons.  

Step 1: Ingredients

1 Lemon

Step 2: Utensils

Cutting Board
Sharp knife
Microwave (Not shown)
Small lemon juicer

Step 3: Method

Wash the lemon.
Gently press and roll the lemon on a cutting board.
Place in the microwave for 20 seconds.
Remove from the microwave and let set for 5 minutes.
Cut in half.
Place one half over the lemon juicer and press.
Repeat with remaining lemon half.

You need to let the lemon set for 5 minutes or it could squirt all over if you don't.

    I use this method too and also if you select your lemons by looking for the shiny thin skinned ones which juice so much better than the thick lumpy skinned ones.
