Quirky Stem

Whether you’re putting together a huge lobster feast or just brightening up a fresh salad, a little bit of citrus is always a welcome addition. But with the cutting and the squeezing—not to mention navigating pulp and seeds—things can get a little messy. Quirky’s Stem aims to fix all that. With this simple invention, you don’t need a knife, juicer, or even a firm grip to add an even spritz of citrus to dishes.

Useless gadget

It's really not worth the effort to pull this thing out, use it and get it clean rather than just juicing half a lemon and rinsing the reamer. The fact that it's a mist is nice, but it doesn't make up for the fact that it's much more complicated to clean, and you end up with a lemon with a hole in it.

no good
Purchased

I really liked the idea of this, as I use lemon juice all the time. I generally buy the little plastic bottles that are shaped like lemons because I use so much and fresh lemons are too much work. I found this a disappointment after many tries, though - it squirts a teeny bit and you end up having to cut up the lemon anyway. Only good as a conversation piece.

Not Great

This is a cool idea, but for me it didn't work all that great. I got it to work a little but it keeps seeming to jam or get fowled up some how.

Havent had the best of luck using this thing. Kinda hit or miss. Cleans up easily but it just seems ot works great one time and then I put a new lemon on and it barely works. I will continue to use product.

It's okay

I am not especially thrilled with this. I had a hard time getting it to work right. It is good in theory, and I will continue to try to use it where possible. Right now, it is easier for me to just use a knife.

Good for a gadget
Purchased

It really does work! Although, it's not the best gadget. For the price, it's not too bad. You do have to punch several holes and move it around in the fruit to get more juice. Then the juice kind of leaks out of the old holes. It's best to use this when the fruit is room temp. Rolling the lemon around on the counter a bit to release juices helps it work better, too. It is a light mist, so if you REALLY like a lot of lemon juice, you might be better off just using a couple wedges. Fun little gadget for a little spritzing though!

Not a "must have" for the kitchen
Purchased

The citrus spritzer is more of a novelty than a necessity. It works fine, but you need to remember to use it - it's not the kind of utensil that comes to mind automatically.
