With the advancement of technology came a change in the way things are done. Items that used to be common in households gave way to more sophisticated pieces.

Back in the days, breakfasts consisted of simple meals that were washed down with either milk or orange juice, while the milkman delivered the milk, the orange juice was made at home with glass juicers.

These glass juicers had a transparent body with a protruded top that allowed for the fruit to be squashed against while the juice flowed into the glass.

Although things have changed and juice is being gotten from the store or extracted with a juice processor now, there is this nostalgic feeling that comes with vintage glass juicers that are captivating.

Be it to make orange juice, lemonade, or grape juice, these glass juicers are perfect for all citrus fruits and for getting fresh homemade juice.

Now they are made in several variants, and some come with plastic bodies and covers for durability, but the use and feel are still the same.

They also make cooking or baking feel nostalgic

For chefs who might be needing citrus extracts, these juicers come in handy as some now have the measurement level written on the body of the juicer.

Worthy of note is that juice has been a part of the human diet for centuries, with some stating that it dates back to as far as 150 BC.

Back then, to get the juice, one had to squeeze each fruit with the hand as hard as possible to extract the juice, take a large bag of fruits, and stomp on them with the legs to extract the juice.

While these methods proved effective, they were tasking, which was why when Norman W Walker invented the mechanical juicer in 1936, it became a must-have in every household.

Although electrical juicers have replaced mechanical vintage juicers in most households, these vintage glass juicers still warm their way into the heart of almost every home chef who needs a quick extract.

Asides from the good nostalgic feel these juicers give when they are seen in the kitchen; they also make cooking or baking feel nostalgic and can be given as gifts to loved ones.
