My friend Vicki sent me an e-mail suggesting it was a juicer - and as she has been in most things since we first crossed paths 55 years ago (she was still in her mother's womb okay!) she was right. This little gem by Alessi, the Italian Design Factory, was indeed meant to juice all manner of citrus stuff.
Though in his comments Jacques brought up a few design flaws that could make it one of those things that looks fabulous on the counter but a disaster when you go to use it. I'm still debating.
