Product Description

Product Description

Mario states that for full flavor and essence, try slicing or grating your garlic rather than pressing.

Amazon.com

In his campaign for accessible, delicious food, Mario Batali is one of the most popular chefs and restaurateurs in the world. Created by Copco and inspired by Batali, the Italian Kitchen line of cookware and tools reflects the famous chef's philosophy that great food needs no gimmicks. Durable, versatile, and high quality, the collection is perfect for the active home chef.

This clever garlic slicer lets you speedily prep whole cloves instead of losing half the garlic to a press. With dual cutting surfaces, the unit slices or grates, and the simple structure keeps fingers away from sharp parts. The tip is non-slip for stability, and the contoured handle is comfortable to grasp. A grommet allows for hanging storage, and the whole slicer is safe in the dishwasher for convenient cleanup. --Emily Bedard

The garlic slicer/shredder is okay once you figure out how much pressure to apply to the pusher when slicing or shredding. Press on the pusher to hard and the hopper will come off. As for shredding, it doesn't perform any better than a decent garlic press OXO Steel 58181 Garlic Press, Stainless since all of the garlic doesn't get shredded. The slicing side will slice but again, not the whole clove so a knife performs better in that regard. But the slicer produces thinner slices than what I can get with a knife. Also, this works best with one clove at a time. It's not a bad tool but it hasn't improved or enhanced anything for me in the kitchen so I don't consider it to be an essential item, and I wouldn't buy it again.

This looked so great I couldn't wait to get it. The size is wonderful but the guard slips off and most of all, it isn't sharp enough so the garlic just jams. I thought if anyone could make a great garlic mandolin it would be Mario but unfortunately, I cannot recommend it. Sorry, Mario!

While I love Mario Batali's cooking show, I can't say the same for his garlic slicer. It seems poorly designed to me. There is such a large space between the sliding hopper and the cutting surface, that large pieces of the garlic cloves slide out uncut. I had a similar product from Norpro that worked much, much better -- and I wore it out. I tried Mario's because I liked the handle, but I sadly returned it to the store. It just doesn't work right. I'm going to buy another Norpro.

Bottom line is this is in the running for the worst piece of cooking equipment I have ever purchased!!! It takes a good bit of practice to figure out how much pressure to apply without the orange "trolley" popping off. Once you do figure out how to apply the proper pressrue you realize that there is about a 1/4 gap between the blades and the bottom of the press. This means that you can only slice/grate the largest of garlic cloves and even then there is still a significant amount that remains. If you try an add another clove to press the remainder down it usually just gets jammed under the "trolley"
