It’s easy to handle by pads thanks to two protusions on the sides.
It’s stable because a part of the structure lays on the area of the hand between thumb and index.
It takes up a little space and has a limited surface.
The body is made of tough polypropylene, so that a general stiffness of the object is granted to contrast the pressure practiced during its use.
This is possible thanks to its ‘boat’ shape that adapts to different glasses’ size in a range between 6 and 9 of diameter, which is the size of most glasses.
The drainage holes starts from below going up in the inside part of the squeezer, in this way while the citrus pulp goes to the bottom of the structure, the liquid finds an outside barrier and an inside hole that ends directly into the glass.
Starting from the classical setting of vertical cuts, I made the squeezing area more funny
interchanging empty and full areas to form a sort of little mountains that increase the appeal keeping its function.
Squeezing citrus creates pression on the glass that has to be resistant to avoid risk of breakage.
The minimum thickness of glasses required is 2 mm and I can assess that most of home and sold glasses satisfy the minimum thickness required.
