Stylish and simple, this garlic press not only makes a messy task easier, it also helps remove garlic odor from busy chefs’ hands. By using downward pressure and a rocking motion, press crushes cloves quickly and evenly, forcing the pieces up through the mesh of holes.

Crushed pieces are then held in the shallow bowl, allowing them to be spooned or scraped easily into a pan. And since stainless steel helps remove garlic odors, use press when you’re done to deodorize hands and fingers. All surfaces that come in contact with food are BPA free.

  • Material: Stainless steel and plastic
  • Care: Dishwasher safe
  • Made in China

My mom bought this since she wanted to pitch her ancient garlic press. This is slick, stylish, relatively easy to clean and easy to use.

PRO:
Super sleek looking, presses garlic well.
Clean off garlic hand odor by rubbing hands against the press under warm water.
Dishwasher-safe.
(Pointless but...Nice packaging!)

CON:
You have to peel the garlic prior to pressing it.
Push through leftover garlic bits with toothpick prior to putting in dishwasher.
You have to press down rather hard for it to work

Nice solution
After many years of trying to find the right garlic press, I had given up and settled on an OXO press that was the best of a long line of bad presses. Typically, it is much easier for me to just mince the garlic with a knife, but, when mincing a lot of cloves, the ease of use of a press usually outweighs that of the knife.

After reading several of the reviews, I would have to disagree that it requires a lot of strength to use this. It made quick work of a dozen cloves, with just a small break to scrape the end product into a bowl.

It is tidy, quick and easy to clean

Converted me to a fresh garlic enthusiast
When I started cooking casually, I used the chopped garlic in a jar, for convenience-sake. As I started to cook more seriously, but under a time-frame, I still used chopped garlic in a jar. With the Joseph Joseph garlic rocker, I found I could peel and rock out my minced garlic, almost as quickly as I could scoop it out of a jar! This tool was well worth it for me, as it is sturdy, holds the garlic until I'm ready to add it, and utilizes my whole garlic clove - nothing wasted. It took a few rounds of practice for me to get used to it. Now, I won't go back to jar garlic or mincing it with a knife. It cleans quickly and easily with a soap brush, too

love it!
I cook with garlic several times a week and this is the best tool I've found for crushing garlic quickly. I love that it cleans easily and leaves no garlic odor on my hands. My new favorite!

Don't like this item
Since this was a featured item in the store I figured it would be a great gadget for garlic. The holes are not sharp enough to press the garlic so I ended up with semi-squished garlic. Not good for anything. Unfortunately I don't have time to return it --will not buy from this brand again. Don't waste your money like I did.

Beautiful to look at...
Ah yes, my hopes were dashed again. This tool looks beautiful and you can hope that it works, but alas, it just doesn't cut the garlic. You have to peel the garlic, and rock with all your might; then half the garlic gets thrown out with the peel, and the rest is stuck in the holes, leaving very little for the sauce. A garlic press does a faster, cleaner job with less effort and less cleanup, so don't waste your money unless you just want to look at it, because it is gorgeous

Beauty and function in one
In 55years of cooking this is the best garlic press I have ever used. If my 75 yr.old arthritic hands can press many cloves with no pain, you know it has to be easy to use! It's easy and quick to clean, too...just use running water and, maybe, a nail brush to help.
It's beautiful enough that it doesn't deserve to be hidden away in a drawer between uses

Peeling Garlic
Just a tip I read about recently. To peel the skin from garlic, microwave the cloves for 5 to 10 seconds. The peel will slip right off with your fingers. Please be careful picking up the cloves the first time until you know just how hot 5 seconds will make your garlic. I learned to juggle garlic the first I tried it after nuking for 20 seconds.... I won't do that again

Your not using this right if u don't like it!
Reading through these reviews... u need to ignore the output and just keep crushing and dumping and crushing the crushed pieces... a couple of times through, they will be getting crushed smaller than just the size of the holes... using a drop of oil in the garlic helps too... especially to get the pieces out of the holes when u r done... just lightly smack the tool on the cutting board and voila!!! I was disappointed at first but a friend who swears by his showed me the light

Remarkable gadget
This rocker crushes garlic into small perfectly formed pieces. This is the size you want for cooking for great taste and not overwhelming. Clean up is so easy and with the stainless steel you rub your fingers over it and garlic smell is gone. For the price and ease of using, it should be part of every cook's kitchen.
I gave them as stocking stuffers this Xmas.
I also have my own

My New Favorite Kitchen Gadget!
This little guy is the best garlic tool I've used so far. Much easier to use and MUCH easier to clean than a regular garlic press. It yields a ton of garlic, especially since you can keep rocking over the same pieces to ensure you get every little bit. The pressed/crushed garlic is also very flavorful from the crushing!

It takes very little effort and works wonderfully. I have a feeling that those who gave it bad reviews were not using it properly. After using mine, I can't imagine having difficulty pressing garlic through the rocker.

Works like dream, and makes me love cooking with fresh garlic

This product is great
I use garlic a lot in cooking and this garlic rocker is in almost daily use. I love it. Easy to use, perfect garlic grate, can be used with two or three garlic cloves at the same time, easy to clean and store. I've bought this ""rocker"" for several of my garlic loving friends and they all love it

Double Duty
I do a lot of cooking and I have a drawer full of Garlic press tools and this is my favorite. True- you do have to press the rocker down onto the garlic and rock it with some strength. But if you do, all or most of the garlic will go through - then scoop it out with a wooden spoon straight into the pan and rinse. I love that it does double duty & washing your hands with the stainless rocker will remove all smells of garlic on you. I have other devices that chop & slice but they seem to be messy to clean. I've read the other reviews from people who prefer something else but I love the simplicity & ease of this one

Don't waste your money on any other garlic press.
Best garlic press I've ever owned. I use garlic in most every meal and have gone through countless presses over the years. This is the last one I will ever own. No moving parts so you don't have to worry about breaking. Easy clean up. Just get it.

"Simple, effective Garlic Press"
What sold me on this garlic press was that it washed the garlic smell off your hands as you rinse the press after use. This turns out to be very robust and easy to use.

Best of all, cleaning it is wicked easy. Occasionally, I need to get a toothpick out to pick a suborn garlic chunk, but that's not too often.

Storage is also nice. It takes up very little space and can fit next to other tools easily

Need to apply a lot of pressure to use
This device seems to need a lot of strength to force the garlic through the holes. As another reviewer noted, the holes aren't sharp so you have to apply a lot of pressure to force the garlic through. If you are strong and like to apply a lot of muscle in the kitchen, this could be for you. If not, there are much better garlic mincers available. If there's a technique to using this, the advice doesn't come with the package. If it doesn't work easily, what's the point

It's not for me.
In theory this is a really good product. But I had a really hard time getting the pieces all the way through the mesh holes. In the end, it was just a much work as using a knife

Perfect for my needs
This garlic press produces uniform little nuggets of garlic goodness. The best part, for me, is that when using this rocker, all of the garlic juice can be scraped into the pan. With other presses, those juices just get left in the press

I now use much more fresh garlic!
This is so easy to use that I now reach for the fresh garlic cloves instead of the stuff in a jar. It produces pieces not just squished bits so you get more garlic flavor, and it is so easy! A few reviewers indicated it was challenging to press down on, and having had two hand surgeries I thought twice before buying one. Sure glad I did. Depending on the clove size you have to press down multiple times and rock it back and forth, but that's how it's designed to work. I press one clove, leave the pieces in place, press another, etc., then scrape it into the pan. It does leave some pieces in the holes, but most come out with scraping or tapping, or I use a toothpick. But if a waste a few tiny bits I'm not disappointed. Its washes like a breeze in the dishwasher or by hand. I loved my old garlic press, but it now sits in the back of the drawer. This will be a Christmas gift for several family members

"OK, but..."
I bought this because I have (and really like) a mezza luna herb chopper and the Garlic Rocker uses the same rocking action. I have used it a couple of times and found that it works OK but it the holes clog up a bit and it is somewhat difficult to clean. All in all, I prefer good quality, self-cleaning, garlic press or a sharp knife to handle my garlic chopping needs

Terrible Disappointment!
I so wanted to love this garlic rocker but I ended up returning it to the store. The first large clove I crushed netted me zero usable garlic, all it did was clog the holes. Subsequent cloves eventually yielded enough garlic for my recipe but it took twice as many cloves as I expected to use and was rather difficult to use as well.

Cleanup was a Nightmare! I cleaned it immediatly because I didn't dare let the garlic dry in all those holes and I had zero faith that my dishwasher would be able to get it clean. I ended up spending 15-20 minutes poking a skewer into each individual hole to release the trapped garlic
