Nothing says Good Morning like a fresh glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or grapefruit juice (aside from coffee of course)! We recently purchased the Breville Citrus Press. We are so LOVE with it that we’ve made a glass of fresh juice every morning for breakfast. There’s something about drinking fresh cold orange juice from a glass that is so satisfying!
I’ve been eyeing this small kitchen appliance for two years now. I guess I’ve mentioned this enough times to Dave that he finally caved and bought this for me! This is an expensive citrus juicer with a price tag of $199. Even though it is pricey, I feel that it is a very good investment. For the person who is looking to make fresh orange juice, lemonade, and flavored water, the motorized parts takes all the difficulties, frustration and pain out of manually extracting juice from the citrus fruits. It takes less then 10 seconds to make a full glass of delicious juice!
Compact and Convenient
The Breville Citrus Press is compact and convenient. It doesn’t take up a lot of counter space. We live in a small condo apartment and counter real estate is so limited! It fits snuggly between my stove, my toaster oven and Nespresso – we didn’t even need to relocate other appliances.
Although this citrus press is small in size, Breville has made it super convenient and easy to clean. All of the removable non-electrical parts are completely dishwasher safe. It is easy to take apart. You can also simply rinse after each use!
The reamer comes in only one size. It works universally with different sizes of citrus fruits – lemons, limes, oranges and even giant red ruby grapefruits. I hated the vintage juicer my mom has. Grapefruits would never fit properly on it and I would always need adjust the fruit to get the sides. In the end, juices would splatter all over the counter (and worse all over myself).
You do not need to press hard on the large handle bar to extract the juices. Simply hold it gently and press down. That’s it!
One thing though, I wish the pulp filter was deeper. After a few squeezes, you will need to scoop out the pulp in the shallow pulp container. I guess this is a good way to force you to either eat the pulp right away or to add it to your orange juice.

Patented dual switch will not allow the cone to spin until both the arm is lowered and sufﬁcient pressure is placed on the top of the cone.

Aesthetically this is a pretty sleek juicer. It has that urban, contemporary slender design. It is easy to use. It extracts juice efficiently and quietly.
One Glass At A Time
One glass at a time. I prefer this over store bought citrus juices. It guarantees every glass is fresh and full of nutrients and vitamins. Making fresh citrus juice at home ensures there are no harmful substances or additives.

With Canadian Thanksgiving right around the corner, now is a good time to start thinking about holiday entertaining. I love spending time at home with family and friends over great food and wine. But I also don’t want to spend the entire time cooking. Here are five of our favorite kitchen gadgets for holiday entertaining that can be used year around also!
Le Creuset 5 1/2 Quart Round Enamel Cast Iron French Over – $442.56 (was: CAD 636.18)
The versatility of cast-iron cookware is unbeatable. That is why it is found in many households. I’ve wanted one since I’ve started cooking. There’s nothing this kitchen workhorse can’t do. From roasting turkey, braised beef brisket, curry and stews, there’s one colorful enameled exterior to match your kitchen!
Cooking for large parties can be stressful. With the Anova sous vide device you can achieve professional results with little effort! The clever design with Bluetooth and WiFi enabled technology allows the cooker to attach to any pot with the accompanying clamp, set the time and temperature with the touch of a button, and cook foods in a sealable bag for maximum tenderness and moisture retention.
All-Clad Turkey Roaster – CAD 276.58
This turkey roaster set is perfect for getting yourself Thanksgiving Day ready! As a Canadian, I like to celebrate both turkey days in October and again with our friends down South in November. This stainless steel pan comes fitted with a nonstick, V-shaped roasting rack that elevates foods to allow for even cooking and browning. Now, all you got to do is perfect that bacon weave on the bird! Easy peasy!
SONOS Compact Wireless Speaker – CAD $249
Having a great playlist is essential to holiday entertaining. You’ve spent hours curating the perfect songs, why would you sacrifice it with poor equipment? SONOS wireless speakers uses WiFi to deliver deep, crystal clear sound. Control all your music and streaming services from a single app (on your smartphone, tablet or computer)!
A sharp knife cuts clean and straight. This eight inch Chef’s Knife satisfies most cooking needs. It has a good weight and has been ice-hardened, hand-sharpened and laser-controlled. This professional razor-sharp blade makes everyday tasks, like slicing bread and chopping veggies, even simpler.
Happy Holiday Entertaining! Tag me in your photos @instanomss, I’d love to see the masterpieces you’ve cooked/baked!
