I’m talking about one of the cupboards, in our kitchen, in France.
I was surprised to find this:
Possibly not the most glamorous piece of kitchen equipment I have ever seen. A Moulinex and not modern by any stretch of the imagination. But do you know what it is?
I think in modern terminology this is called a citrus juicer but, as you can see from the photo, this piece of equipment is far from modern!
It does produce excellent fresh orange juice and it very easy to clean. Always a bonus, I reckon.
My family tease me about my love for a gadget. This is true. In the past, I have had a juicer and, more recently, I bought one of these all singing, all dancing ‘nutrient extractors’. I made smoothies and juices and a lot of mess. Some were lovely, some made me feel like vomiting. Apologies if you are of a sensitive nature. I know I should worship at the altar of kale but it just doesn’t do it for me.
My nutrient extractor is languishing in the UK. I’m sure I’ll pass it on to a family member or friend as soon as I can find someone who would like it.
I also found these bits and pieces… My research – via EBay – tells me that I might have the remains of a Charlotte 3 or 4.
Are you a fan of gadgets? Do you have a favourite? I’d be interested to know!
