The juicy what now? I can hear some of you asking right now. Yes, thats right, it's the Juicy Salif, a lemon squeezer designed by Philippe Starck for the design company Alessi in 1990. Alessi, if you have never of them are an Italian design house who specialise in household items. They frequently work with famous designers to create some rather wacky and unique product that tend to cost a fortune. Step into any high-end design shop and you are sure to find a few shelves dedicated to them. Many moons ago I studied design at art school, and at the time Philippe Starck was a bit of a design celebrity, I even wrote an essay on him! During a study (ahem...) trip to ...

I have to be honest I bought this purely because of the aesthetic looks rather than as a practical product so I have been very pleasantly surprised at how good a piece of design it actually is when it comes to juicing citrus fruit. Resembling a spider with the body perched on three spindly legs this is not a cheap product, I paid £40 for mine which just shows that it is not exactly a cheap product for what is a manual juicer which just happens to look pretty cool. It stands 29cm high with a 14cm diameter and is made from aluminium. To use you simply halve the fruit, stand a glass below the center point of the body of the juicer and then grind the fruit down ... Read the complete review

Well what a great Christmas I had this year, I got a whole stack of brilliant presents, and this Alessi Juicer was one of them. I really couldn't work out what this could be when it was all wrapped up, but once opened I was really impressed with both the look and feel of this juicer. I think perhaps my parents realised that I was spending a small fortune on fresh orange juice at the supermarket, so in turn decided to spend a fortune buying me this, the juicer RRPs for around £45, so it's not really a cheap option. Having said that this is a manual juicer, so you won't be using any electricity to run it, and might even burn a few calories squeezing those ... Read the complete review

No matter what you buy from Alessi, you receive the utmost modern, stylish and impressive design, so pure and classic in lines and look that it manages to take your breath away just by looking at it! This Juicer from Alessi is no different, but simply a proof of amazing ability to make something original and unique, with designers obviously owning quite an eye for detail, style and originality! this is a classic beatuty, but question is, does it actually do its job, making juice that is? I bought this fancy, fun juicer for 44.99, which yes can seem quite a high price for a gadget such as this one, but then again, sometimes you just have to have something that ...

Most will view this as an extravagant buy or a novelty at RRP £47 and, in part, they would be right. It's chic design does look great on your counter top & is popular with the kids who perceive it as something space aged, but this just makes juicing (& fruit) popular with them which is more valuable than it's price. Aside from entertaining the kiddies, I have used this to juice a variety of citrus fruits - lemon, lime, grapefruit & orange - for recipes or to make fresh juice without any added sugars like the shop bought one. My previous juicer was glass & that sealed it's fate. One wrong move & it was to be found in a 100 pieces ... Read the complete review
