Product Description

Color: Indigo

Many gourmet recipe calls for four or five garlic cloves but the average press can only hold one clove. The Savora Garlic Press was designed to have a large capacity hopper that is capable of crushing multiple cloves (or one elephant garlic clove) at once. The durable cast plate features beveled cutting edges to help crush garlic more efficiently. The Savora Garlic Press also features a two-pivot design that gives users a six-to-one mechanical advantage. So for every 10 pounds of pressure, it exerts 60 pounds of force. The press has a unique standing design and a cast metal handle for durability. The press comes with a clear cap that can hold a tablespoon of garlic while keeping oils off countertops. Attachments are easily removed and dishwasher safe.

Customer Reviews

Finally, the Savora does not fit into my kitchen drawers.
Brenda Frank
I put in an unpeeled garlic and it did okay but left more garlic behind then the Kuhn, and when I attempted to follow with a second I found it hard to squeeze.
Becky (NOLA)
A majority of the press is plastic, and the little hammer thing that presses the garlic and the actual garlic press screen are metal.

Color Name: Crimson Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This gorgeous, sleek red garlic press stands up, making it a handy, easy to see table top utensil, not oone you have to go looking for in a drawer.

It functions as great as it looks. Put the peeled clove inside ad press and it out comes the crushed garlic smoothly. I do spoon out whatever remains inside before washing.

It washes easily and is dishwasher safe.

I thought the red was enamel as it's so shiny, but it's hard, durable plastic which looks elegant beside the shiny chrome.

You'll actually be proud to have this at the table. It is the most attractive garlic press I've seen.

Highly recommended!

Color Name: Crimson Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When I cook with garlic, I currently use the Kuhn Rikon garlic press or, more frequently, use the flat part of the blade of a chef's knife to mash the clove. But, the Savora is so pretty and claims to process multiple cloves of garlic that I wanted to try it. However, it simply is not superior to my current methods.

Only two cloves of garlic fit into this press. This is a major selling point, but how much extra time does it take to press a second clove anyway? The grate twists off for cleaning, which is important since the deep barrel where the garlic clove is held is almost impossible to clean out unless you take the grate off. The Kuhn Rikon press, which holds only one clove at a time, presses the garlic very efficiently, even if you press the garlic without peeling it, and it opens completely for easy cleaning.

The Savora also has a cute little plastic cup to catch the garlic, but this also creates unnecessary work. You have to remove the mashed garlic from the cup, then wash it. It is much more efficient to simply press the garlic into a container or into the food that you are cooking.

Finally, the Savora does not fit into my kitchen drawers. I don't have an estate-sized kitchen, and don't need over-sized tools. In short, the Savora is pretty, but it's over-sized, and unnecessary gadget.

Color Name: Persimmon Verified Purchase
I got this after Chocolate and Zucchini gave it a good review. It's just OK, you can crush a lot of garlic at once and I like the orange.

The bowl is very deep and therefore nearly impossible to clean. It's overly heavy. I previously bought the one recommended by Cooks Illustrated, the handle broke in half after less than a year of use so this was my substitute. I wouldn't buy it twice.

Color Name: Crimson Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Courtesy of the Amazon Vine program, I have received a Savora Garlic Press for review. Mine came in red. It comes in a very elegant gift box.

This garlic press can be decomposed into three parts. The colored part you see in the product photos is plastic, and hence it can come in many colors. The silver handle is inseparable from the plastic part, and it is heavy metal. The silver grille at the bottom of the photos is metal also, and it can be twisted off for cleaning. The transparent cap on the grille is plastic, and it snaps on the grille very tightly and doubles as a container when pressing.

The mechanism is a bit hard to describe and I refer you to the product photos for clarification. Essentially you open the metal handle to expose the chamber behind the grille for you to put some garlic pieces in. Then you close the metal handle towards the plastic handle, which will drive a metal plate towards the grille, thus crushing the garlic pieces through the grille into the container cap. Since the grille can be twisted off, cleaning is easy. It is dish-washer safe too, just in case.

The design is such that you have a 6-to-1 mechanical advantage. In my very elementary understanding of mechanics, I think of it as the distance travelled by the handle is 6 times larger than the distance travelled by the press. Hence the power from you is “condensed” 6 times, which makes crushing garlic feels easy. (That's essentially what you get from a lever, except that here it is driven by gear.) In practice, it does feel that way. I have never used a garlic press that feels easier.

Another ergonomic advantage is that you do not need to hold the press in the air. Instead, you can rest it on the table top with the container cap.

Color Name: Crimson Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Most designs have at least a few advantages as this one does as well. The plastic top that covers the head where the garlic comes out helps to keep that area clean while in storage in your drawer. It easily screws off with a half turn. I wouldn't press garlic with it on because the space is very limited.

This thing is big. It is designed to press more than one garlic clove at a time. Consequently it has a large deep shaft in the wide plastic part of the handle. Consequently it is deeply recessed and presents a challenge in order to get down in there and clean it properly. The skin or husk on the garlic needs to be removed each time you make a pass otherwise it will clog the successive runs.

Of course pre-peeling the garlic bulbs would eliminate the necessity of that.
To be honest with you when I took this press out of the box I was instinctively turned off by it. The way the handle moves the flat plate to do the squashing seemed like a wishy-washy way of doing things. It has a gear that dictates its position which is an impressive from an engineering standpoint, but when you revolve it around into its squashing position it makes you concerned about how much room is left for the garlic. However it does have a greater capacity than my Oxo. Did I tell you that I love my Oxo? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000CDVD7/ref=cm_cr_asin_lnk Even though it is a smaller capacity the Oxo has a few features that make it a very smart design. First off it is designed so that you can use your hands for all of the compressing activity, as opposed to having to use both arms in the Savora to get the plunge started.
