I love this garlic press. You don't even have to peel the garlic although I do. I used a Pampered Chef garlic press for years and always hated how hard it was to clean and would always loose the special little cleaning tool. This one is a dream to clean. No separate parts needed, just unfold and the pressing surface pops free of the barrel to allow all the tough peel to be rinsed away. Just a little brush and it's clean. Fold back up and it's ready to use again
This garlic press is too awesome. I had my old one for twenty years and it broke...did my research and found this one. I only wish my old one broke earlier. this press works amazingly well. Completely pressed the entire clove in one shot with almost nothing left behind. Perfect operation.
For years, I used my OXO Good Grips Garlic Press on a weekly basis until one sad day, the metal hinge broke right across the top. Because of the design flaw (other reviewers have had the exact same experience with the metal buckling), I wanted a replacement that didn't have the hinge at a pressure point. I also *didn't* want something like Zyliss's Zyliss Susi DeLuxe Garlic Press, where the paint comes off on your garlic.
I narrowed down my choices to the R�sle Garlic Press garlic press and the Kuhn Rikon, both designed in Switzerland and manufactured in (where else?!?) China. Both are made of stainless steel and are dishwasher safe. I tried out the Rosle and was unimpressed by the lightweight feel of the handles, so I took my chances with the Kuhn Rikon (rated ""best garlic press"" by the illustrious Cook's Illustrated). The handles are also ergonomic and great for arthritis suffers like myself. At more than twice the cost of my old press, it was a lot more than I wanted to spend, but I also didn't want to throw away money on a cheap model that I'd end up replacing sooner rather than later.
I took it for a test drive on some particularly large cloves of garlic. The Epicurean demolished it on the first squeeze, and rather messily, I might add. Remember those slo-mo videos of a bullet going through an apple? Imagine all those little garlic particles spraying all over your stove. You get the picture. I aimed a little more carefully on the second clove, and voila. The press literally used up 99% of the garlic clove, unlike my previous Oxo, which would leave about 30% still intact. The swinging basket design makes cleanup a breeze; no tool is included, but you just need to dig out the remains with a fingernail or toothpick and rinse. It's dishwasher-safe and has a lifetime warranty. Although it's probably the priciest kitchen utensil I've invested in, I use *a lot* of fresh garlic and need something that can live up to the hype
Yeah, it's expensive, but you get what you pay for... This tool is worth every cent! Some of the terms I'd use to describe it include: durable, ergonomic, well engineered, and very high quality. One of my favorite features is the design of the handle that won't trap water like some other brands do
