- The capacity is larger than many other garlic presses. I was able to cram 4 cloves in if I cut each one in half.
- Does a great job of mincing garlic. The texture is perfect and it's much faster then manually mincing with a knife.
- As mentioned in another review, the plastic is polycarbonate and contains BPA. If BPA concerns you, skip this one and get a metal garlic press.
- It does take quite a bit of strength to use. My 70-year-old mother-in-law couldn't do it. People with arthritis might have issues too.
- You need a spoon to dig the garlic from in between the plastic tines. Not a big deal, most garlic presses are this way.
- If you twist perpendicular to the ground (which is the most natural position), garlic juice may drip out. If you have a lot of strength and keep the halves together, this is not a problem.
chop with a knife. For years I may just slice em up and dump in whatever.
Recently I was on a quest to find a garlic press. Can't say why, just decided I wanted something more better than my tried and true manual method, which was great cause I love the smell of garlic
on my fingers. Wanna sniff em?
Anyway, I looked all over Amazon. Read zillions of reviews of trials and tribulations of various
garlic press's. I balked at the price of many and how many had issues with falling apart or
having plating chip and fail. I balked at many due to the fact MADE IN CHINA seems to be the mantra.
I wont' mention names.
Well, I finally decided I'd give this on a try. The 'press' arrived today. I've had a chance
to use it on 4 cloves. Bottom line this thing worked great. A few twists and I had nicely ground garlic, better and finer grind then I get by my manual methods (cause I'm always in a rush)
The unit was easy to clean with a simple rinse in the sink.
I had no issues twisting this model, the new one with the handy knobs grips built in.
Course I'm a 54 year old male so maybe it might be a different story if your wrist strength
isn't there. The cloves I used for this test were of the 'medium' size and not the giant size. I used two at a time for my test. With the ease it handled those I doubt it would be a issue with 4 medium size cloves at a time.
Unless you had some serious arthritis I don't' think anyone would have a problem with this.
If someone did, it would be easy enough to chop a giant clove in half before placing it in the unit.Read more ›

I'll take a few cloves of garlic, chop off the hard ends, then use the twist to smoosh them and remove the peels. Big cloves might need to be halved. Pop them inside the twist, and in 10 or 20 seconds you'll have perfectly minced garlic, and all that great garlic juice as well.
One trick to using it, you've got to sweep the minced garlic out from the teeth, so that they're forming an hourglass shape. Then you can open the halves, and no garlic is stuck in the teeth. You can also give the open twist a quick smack on your cutting board and get 90% of the garlic out without using a spoon or your finger. Then just rinse it under hot water, and you're done. If you let it dry out, minced garlic can get pretty hard and stuck.
You can also mince sliced rounds of ginger in here. I often do both at once as a start to great stir-frys.
