Works Simply and Well
on April 8, 2011
I saw this simple little gadget on Martha Stewart. I knew I needed it. I absolutely hate peeling garlic. Sometimes, it takes me longer to peel the garlic than to prepare the other vegetables. What a pain! My husband taught me how to smash the garlic clove with the side of my knife. That breaks the skin and you can peel it easier, but it can still be persnickity at times. I've been buying jarred garlic for years to avoid the annoyance.
So when I saw this I thought - ooh this looks like something that would work for me. And it does! The first time I used it I went "Aha!" It works simply and it works well. You put the clove inside and simply press as you roll the clove inside the tube. You'll hear a crack and that's it! Pull out the clove, and it will separate into skin and clove. No more peeling. I was having so much fun rolling the garlic cloves and peeling them that I did way more than I needed, and had to bag the extra cloves. Whee!
This peeler is one of the most helpful kitchen gadgets I've ever bought for myself.
