It is electric and the cone rotates in 2 directions to squeeze the juice. It has a larger cone for oranges or you can take it off to reveal a smaller one ideal for lemons & limes. These oranges are Navel oranges from our South Australian Riverland area. They are quite tart at the moment but hey, I need a good wake up in the morning! I'm sorry, but I refuse to by imported oranges from the US when our orange farmers, in the past, have ploughed their harvest into the ground because of poor local market prices. Anyhoo, I have been pumping this good juice into Brianna to wipe out that cold. She went back to school today.
