They don’t like cleaning the head of the press and getting the garlic out of the holes – then I remembered your review. So, clicked the link and ordered the longly named tool. Thanks Jaden for your website, recipes and reviews; you always steer me right!

I also love the texture of the garlic and being a lazy cook, I like to do a couple heads of garlic (a few cloves at a time) and store it in a small tupperware dish – drenched in olive oil – in the fridge. This makes a super convenient way of having garlic around, and it stays fresh for quite a while. I do this with garlic from my mom’s garden and even after a month (I wouldn’t keep it much longer than that), it’s still more potent than freshly smashed store bought garlic!

I think a hybrid microwave/ this handy tool would be great for quick garlic chopping.

Great for smashing garlic, but I found it really cumbersome to use for mincing… until I realized I need to acquire a bit of patience and stop overfilling it. Two large cloves or 3-4 small ones is about as much as you can do at a time. A friend pointed out that for most people, that would be enough space… apparently I’m an exception feeling like I need to stuff 6-8 garlic cloves in at once.

Anyway, agreed, tool worth having. I use it when I would have otherwise finely minced with a knife but I don’t think it replaces the garlic press.

Could probably grind things like cloves, coriander, and fresh herbs with it too!

I love garlic, I’d love this! However… I daresay it kinda looks like a certain grinding device my friends used in Amsterdam, hehe.

Cleans up in the dishwasher and makes a fast job of mincing garlic. I never used my press, I found this to be a better tool for me.
