Summer is a time of great activity. The sun is shining, the weather is warm, and the kids are (most likely) out of school. Even though the days are longer, there never seems to be enough time to pack all the fun into a single day. Luckily, time-saving measures are easily accomplished: one could pack a picnic the night before a trip to the park or beach, plan day-trips around peak traffic hours, or even just concentrate on the good activities. And of course, let the lemonade make itself.

The Smart Planet ELM-1 Electric Lemonade Maker is a gadget that understands the importance of multi-tasking. The convenient automated pitcher features a power switch that not only activates the juicer, but also the stirring apparatus. The clear 2-quart pitcher is also marked with a guideline for adding water to freshly squeezed lemonade. Of course, the juicer/pitcher could be used to create juice from other citrus fruit as well.

Summer is fueled by food and sugar as well as good times and fun in the sun. A couple of other features on this lemonade pitcher keep the good times rolling. A pulp selector helps make the refreshing summertime staple just the way you like it. And at the end of the day, when it's time to wrap up the festivities, the juicer parts disassemble for quick and simple cleanup--making it easy to get ready to do it all again the next day.
