Description

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.

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

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

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

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!

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

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

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

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

Saw this in the "First for Women" magazine. Just what I've been needing! (And my son is a chef, so he needs one too!)
Robin M on Sep 10, 2015
Looks so easy
Sylvia H on Sep 7, 2015
Saw an ad somewhere. My garlic press is a pain. All the good stuff remains stuck in the belly of the thing. So i use the side of my chef knife to smack the clove and then chop it up, this "rocker" shape just makes sense to me
Suzanne P on Sep 1, 2015
Great. Product

So, you do have to peel the garlic first

The garlic does need to be peeled prior to using the rocker. We have several garlic peelers available and I have attached a few options for you.
What is the difference between the Garlic Rocker for $15 Garlic Crusher for $10?

The video and descriptions are the same. The only diff I see is colour...

The difference between the Garlic Rocker and the Garlic Crusher is that the Rocker is made of one seamless piece of stainless steel while the crusher has a stainless steel center and colored plastic handles. The website does actually show a picture of a green crusher along side of the stainless steel rocker and I have submitted for that to be corrected.
Do you ship to Ontario and how much?
