While the Lime Bomber is totally unnecessary for someone enjoying a drink at home, it proves to be very sanitary and perhaps even time saving for bartenders. According to The New York Times, “a little-known city Health Department rule forbids ‘bare hand contact’ with the lime,” so the Lime Bomber squashes that dilemma for New York City bartenders.

Is it a must for the fruit in beer enthusiast? Nah. Will it impress your friends during your Cinco de Mayo party? Probably. Will it save a bartender’s eyes from the acidity kickback of a lime? Definitely.
