If you have never owned a lime press or any other type of citrus press, then it can be difficult deciding what type of lime press will fit your needs best. How often you will be using your lime press can determine a lot about what style lime press you will need.
If you plan on using your lime press very rarely, then don't spend a lot of money on one. For once a year usage, just buy an inexpensive, plastic lime press you can find. Just make sure to look at reviews on the lime press from other happy or not-so-happy customers. If you hear it breaks easily, then go for something a bit more substantial. It's not worth buying a very inexpensive plastic lime press if you're going to need to keep on buying them.
If you're going to be using your lime press more than once a year or for everything from adding a touch of to your glass of water to your favorite food recipes to your favorite limeade recipe, opt for something sturdier that will be more comfortable than plastic. Look for ergonomically designed handles to maximize comfort with soft grips.
Another thing to consider when shopping for lime presses is whether or not it is dishwasher safe. Also, lime presses are sometimes referred to as lemon lime presses, citrus presses, or you can also use a lemon press. They're pretty much all the same thing.
