product of the week

This KitchenAid Citrus Squeezer is one of my favorite and most used kitchen tools that I own, and for that reason I found it worthy of a dedicated POW blog post! One of the things I look forward to most in my daily routine is starting my morning with a big mug of warm lemon water, and that is where this product comes in handy. Let me give you the rundown on why this particular lemon juicer is my favorite, and then we can talk about the benefits of drinking warm lemon water everyday!

Using a lemon juicer is an easy and mess free way to *juice your lemons* without getting your hands sticky or having seeds fall into your cup or dish. Using a juicer also allows you to maximize each lemon or lime, and there is no juice left behind. My favorite part of this particular tool is that it lays flat on the counter, which makes it super easy for anyone to use, even the toughest lemons don't stand a chance against this juicer. It also has a unique feature of a built in cup that gives you the convenience to juice the lemon and not have to dirty another cup or bowl. The built in cup has a strainer above it that will catch any unwanted seeds or pulp, and it has a spout that makes for a mess free pour. The first time I used this citrus squeezer I could tell right away how sturdy it was compared to some other brands I had used in the past. The aluminum and nylon used to make this are BPA free, very durable, and easy to clean. Oh and it is dishwasher safe, woo! 

Now lets talk about the benefits of lemon water. I started incorporating this into my routine about two years ago and I legitimately look forward to it every morning! Not only is it comforting in my opinion, it is also great for you health. I can definitely notice a change in how I feel, and how my skin looks if I happen to skip a few days, which is very rare but hey, life happens!
