My friend Bethia, who has very good taste, turned me on to this unlikely gadget. She says that her mother gave it to her, and it sat in a drawer for years until she actually tried it. Suddenly, she was converted — and now so am I, and here's why.

This squeezer/storage device looks gimmicky, but I can vouch for its usefulness. Essentially, it's a silicone pouch that holds half a lemon and lets you squeeze out just enough juice when you need it. No seeds, no mess.

I constantly have half a lemon sitting around for my morning cup of lemon water or my evening cocktails, and this keeps it so neat and handy. I store it in the fridge and it saves me from using yet another piece of plastic wrap or a baggie.

A rare gadget that is actually getting some use every day here!
