A juicer with some jazz

The Dr Bird Juicer has a different look than most juicers: a bird does all the work.

There's just something about fresh-squeezed juice that tastes good and even feels healthy. But juicers, as a rule, aren't exactly elegant. They're usually utilitarian gadgets that get shoved into a drawer whenever they're not in use. The Dr Bird Juicer doesn't fit that mold, though. Instead of the typical half-sphere design that most juicers rely on to get to the good stuff, this juicer is shaped like a hummingbird. The bird's beak and feathers do the hard work of juicing oranges and other fruit.

The Dr. Bird Juicer stands three inches tall and certainly gets the job done. It was designed by Lesley Look Hong and is available from Imm Living. Hook took inspiration from the Jamaican hummingbird, which is nicknamed Dr. Bird because it keeps ecosystems healthy by flitting from flower to flower, using its beak to get to the juicy nectar of flowers. The juicer can help keep you healthy as well, by bringing out the juice of your favorite citruses with a little help from its beak. It can even make for a handy gift: even that relative who has one of everything probably doesn't have a juicer shaped like a hummingbird. The Dr. Bird Juicer is $24.
