Product Description

Could there be a more whimsical way to chop or mince garlic? Simply insert a few peeled cloves in the top "trapdoor" of this little machine, close it, and roll the Zoom back and forth (with a little pressure) on the countertop. You can watch the stainless-steel blades inside doing their work through the clear body. When the chopping looks done to your specifications, open up the whole top half of the Zoom, remove the blade unit, and scrape out the garlic. Easy as pie, with no smelly hands to scrub. Another creative kitchen toy from the folks at Chef'n, the Garlic Zoom makes a great gift, gets kids involved in helping out, and is dishwasher-safe on the top rack. --Ann Bieri

Perfectly chopped garlic!
S.J.M.
It does chop the garlic, but it's hard to get the wheels and blades to rotate sometimes, especially if you overload it.

I recommend this to anyone who likes to use fresh garlic in their kitchen.

This little device is almost perfect. It's fun to use, and you control the size of chopped garlic you need. (If you're a serious chef and can mince garlic behind your back with your eyes shut, you probably don't need this device.)

The minor drawback is the clean up. There are two components to this little zoom; the garlic compartment and the rotating blade. You need to be careful not to hurt yourself when separating the two and removing your garlic. But, if you're patient in the kitchen (and not accident prone), that shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for the super cool zoom, Chef'n!

This is my favorite kitchen gadget in years. Seriously. I try not to buy too many gadgets, because they tend to just sit in the drawer taking up space once the novelty has worn off. But the Garlic Zoom was too interesting to pass up, and so far it has earned its space in the kitchen.

Before I had the Garlic Zoom, I had two realistic options when I wanted "minced" garlic: I could mince it by hand, which works great but is time consuming and messy (my hands would smell like garlic for hours), or shove it through a garlic press which is convenient but doesn't produce nearly as nice results. The Garlic Zoom gives me the best of both worlds. It's almost as quick and easy as the garlic press (the only minus is having to disassemble it to clean it), and the results are as good as mincing by hand (better, if I'm being honest).

If you cook with garlic a lot, the Garlic Zoom is worth picking up!

You put smallish pieces of garlic clove in the top and wheel the device to and fro. A wheel drives rotating cutting blades. Pretty quickly the garlic is either cut or turned into a paste, depending on its moistness. You snap open the device, push out the debris and reload for another batch.

Another review mentioned clean-up. This is actually not bad, the device comes apart easily and the bits can be put in the dishwasher or soaked for a bit of a brushing out.

It takes quite a bit of downward pressure to get the wheel to grip and thus drive the cutting blades. It would be hard to use on some smooth cooktops, I use a wooden cutting board.

This is handy if you're mincing large amounts of garlic. It's too much trouble for just one clove. I almost gave up on it the first time I used it because I couldn't get it to roll. But I kept pushing it back and forth rapidly until it started cutting through the clove.

Best way to get garlic smell off your hands is to wash them with a bit of liquid diswasher detergent.

This product was very difficult to use. It did not chop the garlic the way I wanted it to. The wheels did not roll properly. Nice idea though.

It's so cute! I followed the directions, put a couple of cloves of garlic in, and tried to roll the little wheels. It immediately jammed up. Then I cleaned it all out (a pain) and tried putting in one small piece. Jammed up again.

I cleaned it thoroughly, dried it completely, and the next night, gave it one more chance. Same result.

For me, it's much quicker to mince the garlic with a sharp knife. I get the smell off my hands by rubbing them with a plastic dish scrubbie.

I'm taking this back to the store.

This garlic crusher zoom is so not worth your time. First of all the garlic bulb gets stuck onto the small blades. If your lucky after a few minutes of using the garlic zoom the garlic is diced and now the question is how to get all the garlic out? Then you have to use your fingers which get all smelly. It's much easier to use the garlic press.
