Quirky Citrus Spritzer: Does it work?

We've got a little nozzle that promises to turn a piece of citrus fruit into a spray bottle. You just stab it into a piece of fruit and it sprays fruit juice!

Sean Brogan loves to cook, and he shared a homemade lunch with us to try out the Quirky Citrus Spritzer stem. But does it work?

"I'm just going to broadside it," says Brogan, "I'm going to go right into the side of the lemon here. There's really no instructions that come with this, so. Let's see if we can get a good spray. This is working really well! Get some in my tea. I'm really surprised by this."

Brogan takes a bite.

"Definitely better tasting than that plastic lemonesque looking bottle that you might get at the grocery store. But I think there's a lot of juice left in this lemon that I'm not able to spray anymore," says Brogan.

Brogan's worried that the spritzer leaves too much juice behind. So he set up a test.

"Okay so, I'm going to do a side-by-side comparison," says Brogan, "In one I'm going to extract the juice using my personal citrus press which I love so very, very much. And, our new friend, the citrus spritzer."

"Now I'm just going to get as much as I can," says Brogan, "I'm making a mess. Let that be perfectly clear. It's all over my hands. I mean, there's just no comparison. I spend my hard-earned money on my citrus, and this is what I want when I juice it."

"Overall, I think I'm going to have to say no to the Citrus Spritzer," says Brogan, "I can't think of a situation where this is a better idea than just squeezing the juice out and putting it onto something in a different way. My hands would definitely be cleaner."

The wasted juice was too much for Brogan, but it might be just the right tool for you. So we're going to give this one a maybe.
