Thanks to the imaginative minds at Chef'n, chopping and mincing garlic just became fun. Remember the days when you would make the go fast noises while playing with your hot wheels? Well, fast forward to mincing garlic in your kitchen--grab the Garlic Zoom and relive your childhood. To use this whimsical gadget, simply fill with 1-2 peeled small to medium-sized garlic cloves through the top chamber. Next, roll the GarlicZoom around your kitchen counter (with a bit of pressure). Finally, open the second chamber, safely remove the blade and empty the garlic. Perfectly chopped garlic in seconds. Trust us, your hands will be grateful and your recipe will be perfect. The GarlicZoom has a stainless steel blade and is top rack dishwasher safe.
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
