Step 3: Method

Picture of 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.

Thanks for sharing pecospearl! I wished I could find Meyers lemons in my area! They are so good and they happen to have thin skins. Have a super day!
