Product Description

This ingenious cutter thinly slices with a twist of the hand and is ideal for garlic, parmesan cheese, chocolate, nutmeg-all sorts of things! It features an extra-large food compartment and built-in lid which allows for food storage right in the cutter! Why Comfortline? In honor of the Leifheit 50th Anniversary, we created our red-hot Comfortline. Comfortline products are not only practical, but focus on ergonomics and functionality. Made with white ABS plastic for easy-to-clean and a streamline look, we accented each piece with red thermoplastic, which not only looks striking against the white, but serves as a non-slip surface for a comfortable grip, and added stability. You'll appreciate each piece in our Comfortline for its durability, ease of use, and beauty that makes each piece a show-stopper. Each piece is dishwasher safe, and comes with a 3 year guarantee, making Comfortline products an unbeatable value for your home.

Anyone who has attempted to manually slice garlic cloves into uniformly thin slices will appreciate this nifty little tool. Although it is marketed as a cutter for more than just garlic, we have only used it as a garlic slicer so I cannot speak to its usefulness when it comes to other foods.

Here are my comments on the Leifheit Cutter:

PROS:
-Truly effortless operation. We had a Bodum slicer before (has since been discontinued) and I never knew that slicing garlic could be so easy! One hardly notices that something is happening at all but then the clove is already sliced oh-so-thinly and one is done.
- The cutter is designed to constantly move the garlic clove around while the upper part is turned so the clove never gets stuck, a problem we occasionally had with the Bodum.
- The red bottom part is actually a removable stand/lid. Practical for either keeping the slices contained until using them, or for protecting the countertop surface from sticky garlic residue...
- So easy to clean. High marks for that! The inner part can be removed with two side push tabs, separating the container from the actual blade part. All parts can go in the dishwasher and because the cutter can be so neatly taken apart, there are virtually no "nooks and crannies" where food could get stuck.

CONS (minor, but want to mention them regardless):
- Our old Bodum slicer locked the top part to the bottom part and the garlic was sliced by only turning the top handle. The Leifheit in contrast does not lock, requiring a little bit of pushing down and turning at the same time. As I mentioned above, operation is really effortless, but I still think it would be even easier if the slight push-down wouldn't be required at all.

Picked this up on clearance as a stocking stuffer. Thought I should try it out on garlic. It creates uniform slivers far finer than if I were slicing the garlic. To mince the garlic I then crosscut with a heavy sharp knife. Needless to say if this handy device goes in a stocking the stocking will be mine. I may have to break down and buy more from Amazon for friends as no one who cooks with garlic should be without one of the these gadgets.

One reviewer suggests that the design should not require any effort to press and turn. I don't have an electric garlic press (is there such a thing?) and this takes less effort than a garlic press which one squeezes. As for the top not being attached to the bottom, the item is small enough to be picked up whole with one hand.

Cleaning could not be easier. All the garlic is sliced and perhaps one has to poke the last slice out, but that is all. Rinse and you are done.

This little gadget gets my garlic paper thin like I could never manage with a knife. Its also really easy to use, just drop in the cloves and twist!

This really does cut very thin slices of garlic with minimal fuss. I suspect the blades will get dull eventually, but in the meantime, it works nicely.

I have a wonderful pasta recipe that calls for thinly sliced garlic, and I found it hard to get it consistently thin, especially when working with itty bitty cloves. Mincing effectively can be difficult too. After a LOT of research online for something along the liens of a garlic slicer/shaver, I found this. It works BEAUTIFULLY, and it is essentially just two easy to clean pieces. I peel the garlic (separate the cloves, cut off the root tips, and toss 'em in between two metal bowls and shake the bowls for 10-20 seconds), then put the garlic (all cloves at once) in this contraption, put the lid on, and turn. In a matter of seconds, super thinly shaved garlic spews out of the bottom, and it slices it ALL, with no garlic left behind (or just a shaving or two that is easily removed). It's also easy to rinse clean.

At the same time, I also bought something that looked like a pepper mill for garlic that was supposed to mince it, but it was pretty much DOA. However, I've found that shaving it and then using a knife to mince the shaved garlic works great (much easier than trying to mince starting with whole cloves).

This thing is FANTASTIC. I wish I'd discovered it years ago. BUY IT.

This was a waste of money very hard to use. I almost break my wrist trying to turn this garlic slicer.

Does a great job of slicing garlic in thin slices that can be roasted fried or toasted for that intense garlic finish... Will do a great job slicing ginger in thin slices as well. Totally works as advertised.
