Since I own both this Kuhn Rikon and the Rosle garlic presses, I have posted this comparison on the Rosle reviews, as well:

There's no doubt that the Rosle is extremely good--in fact, I would have given it five stars just a few weeks ago. But then I purchased the Kuhn Rikon Epicurean Garlic Press (#2315), after reading a recent review of it in Cook's Illustrated. After repeatedly comparing the two side-by-side, the Kuhn is unquestionably the better press. It was also about $8 cheaper here on Amazon, but that doesn't seem to be the case any longer--in any event, I didn't consider price for this review.

What's strange is that the crushing mechanisms on both presses appear to be identical. In fact, prior to crushing with the Kuhn, I felt disappointed when I received it, convinced that I had just bought the same garlic press twice. However, for whatever reason (and it remains a mystery to me), the Kuhn's crushing of garlic is clearly superior in two ways: 1) It produces a more beautifully consistent mince of the garlic, whereas the result from the Rosle seems more "smashed" by comparison. The difference isn't subtle--I was honestly shocked by it. 2) The pressing is more complete, with less left behind in the hopper, and it presses unpeeled garlic better, as well. (That said, I get a much better press from either unit with peeled cloves.)

Ergonomically, the shape of the Kuhn also handles better, although I never had a problem with the Rosle. And I'd say both units have stainless steel construction of equally high quality. For me, it was the crushing performance and not the handling that has sadly relegated my Rosle to the drawer, since I now always reach first for the Kuhn.

I read about this particular garlic press in Cook's Illustrated. I have found the magazine quite reliable when they recommend kitchen tools. Like another reviewer, I thought the design looked extremely similar to what I already had. Since my current garlic press was not very good (it mainly expelled juice more than garlic) I was a bit apprehensive, but our local organic farm was including a lot of garlic in our weekly produce box so I decided to go for it. Am I ever glad I did. I really like this garlic press -- it performs very well. When I squeeze, nice "minced" garlic emerges from the press. I am very happy with this product and recommend it without reservation.

Warning: Kuhn-Rikon put up a DIFFERENT item than the Zyliss Susi Garlic Press and I wrote this review in 2002. So this review was for an older stye garlic press, but now the listing is for a different press. I'm sorry about that, but if vendors re-use listings where old reviews hang out, what can you do? So after discovering my 13 year old review was "hijacked", I've revised it. If you want to read a review about the Zyliss Susi, you got it, further down. The Kuhn-Rikon Epicurean Garlic Press, which is different. The Kuhn-Rikon is larger, has a bigger compartment, and actually is superior to the Susi. It is more than twice the price, however. You won't have the problem of the coating on the Susi wearing off (that happened to me) and you can remove the sieve portion of the Epicurean Garlic Press for easier cleaning. Garlic is sticky and if you let it dry out, the sieve gets clogged nd is not easy to clean. The handle is curved ergonomically to deliver more pressure--so you can use this for ginger juice, as well because it will crush the fibrous root. This model was recommended by America's Test Kitchen, but they also found the older Zyliss Susi to be just as good. If you have smaller hands, you may want the Zyliss.

To find the Susi by Zyliss, Zyliss Susi 3 Garlic Press is the newer version and will save you some money. If price is no object, the Kuhn-Rikon is top-o-the-line. The Susi is updated from the old round style base, to a newer, more oblong base with an improved cleaning tool. I like it fine.

Love garlic. Hate mashing, mincing, making paste. I would say I put garlic in about twice as much stuff, now. As easy as powdered garlic. Leave the peel on and press multiple cloves at once. Don't be mislead if you leave the skin on, you have to clean between pressings or the holes get clogged. Lot of money, but very sturdy construction. Will last a long time. Also, cleans in seconds. hopper folds out and opens up so it rinses clean very easily.
My last garlic press was seldom used, took too long to clean, took multiple presses as garlic oozed out around the plunger. It was such a pain, I chose to smash and mince with a chef's knife (tedious and leaves you fingers smelling like raw garlic), rather than wrestle with that thing. This press gets practically all of the goods in the dish you are preparing, just papery skin remains.
