Keeping it simple with the Cuisinart Citrus Juicer

A refreshingly uncomplicated juicer squeezes out healthy results.

Looks good in any kitchen. Sur La Table

Sometimes it's the simple things. After a weekend that has most likely been filled with ribs, hotdogs, chips and dips, a welcome retreat from the fatty and greasy is necessary. At times like these, I crave juice. Lots of juice. Super-size juice. Freshly squeezed, please. Nothing beats the healthy feeling that comes from drinking a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. You don't even have to spend the day recovering from Super Bowl food to enjoy; juice is great at anytime.

This Cuisinart Citrus Juicer (which even somewhat resembles a football) could be the solution for your Super Bowl hangover. With a brushed stainless-steel exterior, the simple machine fits in with any kitchen décor. The reamer works clockwise and counter-clockwise, which gives the ability to extract more juice from your favorite fruits. The juice is funneled through the included snap-up spout, which prevents drips after use. For storage, the juicer has a cord wrap feature. The removable parts are top-rack dishwasher safe.

Super Bowl food doesn't have a reputation for being healthful. Similarly, much of what was prepared and eaten over the weekend was complicated: from special secret sauces to multistep planning, people take Super Bowl food very seriously. Now that the hoopla is over, it is nice to see something as quick, simple, and healthy as a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice.
