OXO SteeL Garlic Press:
The OXO SteeL Garlic Press works swiftly to press the maximum amount of pulp and juice from cloves of garlic. Combining the strength and durability of zinc with large handles and soft, non-slip grips, this large capacity tool easily presses many garlic cloves at once. A built-in cleaner efficiently removes garlic residue, and the Press is dishwasher safe.
It’s the Little Things:
At OXO, we consistently develop products that address even the tiniest of pet peeves, because we know it’s the little things that make the biggest difference. Our engineers designed the SteeL Garlic Press with square-shaped nubs spaced precisely to maximize the amount of garlic pressed, reducing waste and resulting in a garlic mince, not mush.
Features & Benefits:
When preparing garlic, it’s best to wash your hands with cold water. Hot or warm water will open up your pores, allowing odors to seep further into your skin.
OXO is dedicated to providing innovative consumer products that make everyday living easier.How do we do it?

I chose this primarily because the handles looked solid and sturdy and I wanted to avoid having it break again the same way my old one did. (This is a different model from my old one.) In fact, they are pretty sturdy -- this thing is HEAVY, but that should equate to durability in the long term. There don't appear to be any weak spots in the handles.
This is a different style than my last garlic press (which had one of those paddle things that inserts into the chamber where the garlic goes), and I think I like the style more. It just seems like there are fewer moving parts, and, hence, less that can break.
This is pretty easy to use -- just put a clove of garlic in and squeeze the handles together. You have to use a fair amount of force, but it worked even with my very small hands. You can leave the skin on the garlic clove or remove it first. Be careful about the garlic that is coming out; I pressed fairly hard and some of it shot past the plate where I intended to catch it and landed on the counter.
You will get more garlic out if you remove the skins first. This is how it has been with every garlic press I've ever used, though, so I won't let that affect my rating. Also, yes, some of the garlic gets stuck on the press and is wasted. Again, a feature of every garlic press I've ever used. This one is fairly easy to clean, however, which is great, since that is NOT a feature of many other garlic presses. You can bend it backwards on the hinge and there's a plate with raised bumps that will press the remainder of the garlic up so you can clean it off. (Hard to explain, but trust me -- easier to clean.)
Mine has been through the dishwasher (top rack) several times and still looks great. I have had wonderful results with this so far, and expect to get many years of use out of it.
To be fair, this Oxo garlic press DOES work much better than the WalMart one. For one thing, it actually presses the garlic through the holes, and it does so with minimal effort on my part. But I guess I've been spoiled by the Ikea garlic press we've been using for years. That one worked like magic, producing perfectly pressed garlic every time and leaving almost no waste behind. This Oxo garlic press leaves a lot of waste behind.
First, the part that does the pressing is too small for the opening where the garlic cloves go. So as you squeeze the handles and press the garlic, much of the cloves come mushing out the sides. You end up with a lot of flattened garlic on the sides and a lot of mush to clean up. I've gotten in the habit of folding this waste back into the chamber and re-pressing it, but it becomes a multi-step process and doesn't work very well.
Also, the press doesn't quite reach all the way to the bottom. So there's always a bunch of flattened garlic left that doesn't get through the holes. More waste, which is unfortunate.
On the other hand, this Oxo garlic press is a joy to clean up. I just rinse it out immediately after I use it and it comes out spotless. The plastic cleaning pins that clear out the holes by swinging the handles backwards do a great job of clearing the holes of residual garlic.
I wish I could find another Ikea garlic press in the same style as our old one. It was by far the best. But I guess this Oxo product is adequate enough for now. And considering what we paid for it, I'm not in the mood to buy yet another one.
Thank you OXO for another quality product!
( and I don't work for the company or own stock in it :~). )
