How to Get the Most Juice from a Lemon
Cutting a lemon isn’t rocket science, and juicing one isn’t either. Still, there are a number of tips and tricks for getting every last drop out of your citrus—and they’re worth your time. If you have a particularly stubborn lemon, for example, rolling it on the counter or sticking it in the microwave could help.
For the most juice possible, don’t slice your lemon in half. Instead:
① Hold the lemon lengthwise and slice off two sides.
② Keeping it vertical, with the ends in tact, slice off the other sides.
③ Squeeze each cut.

Of course, that’s not the only way to slice a lemon for more juice. Some suggest you cut it lengthwise, instead of in half. Others suggest you slice it into three parts. Whatever you do, give this method a try and see what you think. You may never look back.
