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.

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.

50/50

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

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

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.

Not my favorite

I am a frequent tea drinker and I like to put a little lemon in my tea. I bought this product with the hope that I would no longer need to cut small lemon slices for each cup of tea. I really wanted to like this product but I found that the amount of lemon juice that comes out is just not enough to make an impact on my tea. This is perhaps for use if you just want a very small amount of lemon on your food/drink.

Eh?

This is a cute and interesting product but not too useful to me... I am sure though that some people will find great use for this. It might be great for salads and for adding just a hint of citrus flavor to something without overpowering it.

Great Idea. Medium in Usage.

This is an awesome idea. It makes an excellent stocking stuffer-type gift for the gadget-y person who really already has EVERYTHING. I can guarantee you, they probably do not have this gadget. The spritz aspect of this is a great application since you can get an even spray...

Great invention!

I use this all the time on my roasted veggies and it's such a great way to get a lot of flavor without a lot of calories! The fact that you don't even have to cut the lemon or worry about getting seeds in anything is even better. Definitely a must-buy!

Cool

Works like it says it should. Great for cooking and adding a little citrus to cocktails (perfect for G&T). Only downfall is having to bore more holes into the fruit in question to hit a juice vein. I almost felt bad for those poor, mangled lemons.
