The handle on the crusher makes it easy to apply pressure to press the garlic. I did it few times. I push down gently to puncture the garlic and then rock it side to side. It is amazing how fast that the garlic gets minced. Then the cleanup is easy too. Love it!
If I could give this product more than 5 stars I would. It cuts through and minces garlic easy and is much easier to clean than the traditional garlic press. I bought another one for my mother-in-law and she LOVES it too. She cooks a lot and said it made her life so much easier too.
After I tried this garlic press I bought it for three other people. It makes using garlic so much less fussy and tedious. I use more now garlic because it is so much easier to cut them. And the crusher makes short work of large and small garlic cloves.
This is fantastic! This is so easy to use, and there is little to no wasted garlic. The traditional presses always left garlic squished in-between plates and such. This doesn't do that. Almost all of the garlic is pressed, and it is easy to get out. My hands use to always smell like garlic after using a press (because I had to try and clean it out) but not anymore. A quick rinse usually cleans this, and if there is stubborn garlic left, a quick swipe with a brush takes care of it. I recommend this for everyone! This garlic press is worth every penny, and you'll never use another one again.
Easy to use! Easy to clean! No need for hesitation! Go ahead and buy it! You won't be disappointed! :-)
Sturdy garlic presser
Easily did great job. Great especially for folks with a weak grip who had trouble with a press that has to be squeezed.
Very practical, excellent material and great price
