Tap the flavor

Stem metal sprays juice directly from any citrus fruit with the press of a finger. No cutting, no skinning... just a liquid burst of flavor straight from the source.

No drop left behind

CitriTwist is easy on the eyes, and even easier on food and drink prep. Its hollow, twisted form allows the juice to drip down the inside walls instead of your hands.

Invented By

Tim Houle

Like all Quirky products, Stem and Reamer were invented and influenced by real people like you. Tim came up with the idea for Stem after discovering the magic of lime juice on tortilla chips. He's worked as a bartender, zookeeper, and lifeguard and is now a biologist. As an industrial design student, Carlos found that many cooks use mixer beaters to extract citrus juice. That inspired his concept for a new and improved reamer.
