I think that another good idea will be to use a lemon squeezers. Anyway, if you are so famous * you can say anything.

Sure squeezer is good but rubbing is the trick here. On top of that hand-made is the best. I would prefer this technique over squeezer the same way as I prefer fresh food over canned food.

Hi, Vikas. Great tip about microwaving lemons. Also, when you want to serve lemon sections to those at the table (to squeeze over seafood), it helps to (after cutting the lemons lengthwise into quarters or more pieces) to cut off the top "pithy" membrane that's at the peak of each wedge. This membrane makes it harder for the citrus juice to come out straight (meaning, it's more likely to squirt out randomly into a diners eye!). I enjoy your videos, it's a pleasure to be in the same company with you. Let's stay in touch. Lauren

Good point ! It makes them more attractive as well, you can also remove seeds at this point.
