I have very bad arthritis in my fingers, so am always looking for kitchen tools that will make life easier and this one measures up big time!
Also, it's very sturdy, I'm sure it will hold up well over many uses, and it doesn't take up a lot of room in my drawers.
Easy cleaning, just run under hot water. I recommend doing this soon after using so that the garlic doesn't dry on it. It is much harder to get off or out of the teeth of the tool later. I used hot water & a little dish soap. I do not put this in the dishwasher but I do not see why you couldn't.
Also, when using, add an extra clove. It is sometimes hard to get the full amount of garlic from out between the teeth of the twister. If you add a piece of extra garlic, you won't miss this bit of trapped garlic.
I've had a garlic twist for years - LOVE IT! Although I at times I have problems twisting it, I cut the garlic into a few smaller pieces and it works fine. For getting the last bit of garlic out, after I've taken most of the garlic out, I add an ounce of water and dump the whole works in with what I'm cooking (I'm usually doing a stir fry so I need just a little bit of water anyways).
So when I saw the new improved one with the grips, I thought PERFECT! Well I got a cheap imitation instead. It did not have the grips and the total weight of it was a mere 40 grams compared to 160 grams, so this is made of PLASTIC, and not poly carbonate. I got it from Guess Gates, who isn't an authorized distributor of the Garlic Twist. I'm returning this and reordering it from one of the authorized distributors.
Pros: the little bits of garlic which get in the teeth are easy to scrape out with a spatula, because there is enough space between the teeth. It's manual, which forces you to actual burn a calorie to chop your garlic. It's kind of fun. You don't have to try and mince with a knife and find all the little bits of garlic that stick to the knife, your hands, the cutting board....
Cons: It's plastic (acrylic) which I am not a fan of, but this in glass would be impossible not to break. I hand wash to avoid overheating it, although I'm sure it's dishwasher safe in terms of it's not going to melt in there. You still have to peel the garlic, which will put some garlic smell on your hands. Garlic is smelly. That's just something we have to deal with.
Be careful to buy the ORIGINAL Garlic Twist. There are a lot of cheap imitations out there!
