This clever garlic slicer lets you speedily prep whole cloves instead of losing half the garlic to a press. With dual cutting surfaces, the unit slices or grates, and the simple structure keeps fingers away from sharp parts. The tip is non-slip for stability, and the contoured handle is comfortable to grasp. A grommet allows for hanging storage, and the whole slicer is safe in the dishwasher for convenient cleanup. --Emily Bedard
