A Do South® Review

When contemplating which item to review for March, it became clear to me that I have a love affair with gadgets. I couldn’t decide between the Baseboard Buddy, the 360 Mop, the Red Copper pans, or the Leuke Citrus Sprayer Set. No need to run out and buy anything, I already owned them all! I may need an intervention. But first, let’s get on with the Leuke Citrus Sprayer Set review.
What’s the deal?
I love water with lemon or lime, but I don’t like floating the slice in my glass after squeezing out the juice and worry about what could be seeping into my beverage from the rind. And I also like citrus flavors on certain foods like fish and salads, but I find it’s difficult to distribute it evenly. The Citrus Sprayer looked like a great way to get the fresh flavor I wanted without worrying about contamination from the outside of the rinds.
What’s the claim?
Leuke claims you can turn citrus fruits (think lemons, limes, grapefruits) into self-spray bottles. Simply slice off the top portion of the fruit, insert the spray mechanism into the center, and spray the juice from the fruit onto drinks, salads, and more. The set comes with two sizes of sprayers (one for small fruits like limes, and one for larger fruits like oranges and grapefruits), a resting dish, and instructions.
What’s the cost?
Available on Amazon for only $6.50 when you add it to a qualifying order of $25 or more, or online at Bed Bath & Beyond for $14.99 plus shipping and handling.
What’s the verdict?
Does it work? Yes. It. Does! I found myself using citrus on so many food items. Especially handy is the resting dish which keeps fruit standing upright in the refrigerator when not in use. I was a little concerned that once the fruit was cut, juice would leak out everywhere, but the silicone ring prevents the juice from escaping. It’s a cinch to use, comes apart easily and is dishwasher safe. If you love fresh citrus in your drinks and on your favorite foods, I highly recommend that you run out and get a Leuke Citrus Sprayer Set of your very own!
