The solution is called Safti
Where to put the lemon? This question has probably been asked by many people, especially since it is known that a glass of warm lemon water in the morning strengthens the immune system, aids digestion and stimulates the brain. But what's the best way to get the juice out of a lemon? If you cut it open in the middle and squeeze it out with your hands, annoying pips fall into the glass and actually still usable remains into the trash can. If you use a lemon squeezer, you have to wash it off afterwards and usually have some juice left over, because you rarely use up the whole lemon at once. So where to put the rest?
Others would have liked to invent this too
The family business Prado Berlin has found a solution to this problem. It's called Safti. Just under ten centimeters long and weighing twelve grams, the patented juicer and juice dispenser with lid is made of Makrolon, a plastic that is insensitive to fruit acids, food-safe and heat-resistant.
"The basic idea has been around for 80 years," reveals Goilherme, who is presenting the Safti at the booth in Hall 10.2. His Brazilian grandmother already owned a lemon pourer, albeit made of metal, he says. What's new now, he says, is the material and the practical lid. "I think it's a bit of a shame that I didn't invent this myself," Goilherme admits. Each time he begins his presentation, numerous trade show guests gather at Prado Berlin's small corner booth. Each time he describes the process with the same enthusiasm and shows how to saw the serrated edge into the fruit - always on the flower side, never on the stem. At the end, about three centimeters of the plastic tube still peek out, and these fill up as Goilherme evenly squeezes the bowl.
Off to the dishwasher
If you have extracted enough juice for your morning glass of water, your salad for lunch or to descale your bathroom fixtures, you can simply close the lemon and, optionally, the lime, orange or grapefruit with the lids attached to the top of the Safti and put them in the refrigerator. For this purpose, the company supplies a small coaster in green, yellow, red, blue, pink or orange with each Safti. According to the manufacturer Prado, the fruit can remain in the refrigerator for seven to eight days.
When the lemon is completely squeezed, the last remnants are also suitable for descaling the dishwasher and giving dishes and cutlery a fresh scent. To do this, simply place the cut open peel in the dishwasher during the wash cycle, advises Goilherme. However, any remaining seeds should be removed beforehand.
