    Which do you have? If you have both, which do you use more? Which would you recommend more?

    Citrus press is my favorite. I use it more than I ever thought I would.

    Another vote for the press, although the juicer is great for oranges, which are too large for the press.

    Exactly... That said, my juicer gathers dust and my citrus press goes everywhere with me. ​

    I use the press for oranges. I just quarter them so they fit in. Works great!

    GREAT tip!!! I will have to try that. I definitely use the press more than the juicer!

    I have both--I recently got the juicer. I love the press for lemons and limes but prefer the juicer for oranges or larger pieces of fruit. That being said, I do feel like the juicer actually gets more juice out of them than the press but I do love the press!

    Love the citrus press, but I don't have the juicer so I can't compare

    Citrus press all the way. Use it all the time at shows on the Pineapple Salsa and Fajitas.
    Have yet to sell one but everyone is amazed at how much juice comes out and IMO super easy to use and squeeze.

    Really? Because I feel like it's the exact opposite! That's funny.:)

    I have both and always use the press for lime and some lemons if they're on the small size. But lately the lemons are so large that I have to use the juicer for them unless I want to waste part of the lemon by cutting them smaller to fit in the juicer. Plus with the juicer you can strain the seeds out of the lemon juice.

    Love the press and use it LOTS!!! Regarding large fruits vs small fruits, flesh side down (toward the holes) for small fruits and flesh side up for larger... works GREAT!

    I have both and use the juicer more, I guess because I need to measure.

    I use the mini easy read measuring cup with the press to measure everything out.

    Yeah, that might be the difference, since I rarely measure anything. :eek:
