It's big enough to easily squeeze two or three cloves at once.
The vast majority of garlic is squeezed through the holes into garlic puree (only a little slips up behind the plunger).
The cleaner stores cleverly in the handle (so I haven't managed to lose it yet which is quite a feat).
The cleaner stores cleverly in the handle AND its quite a useful little cleaner too!
Rinses clean very easily after use and the time I kind of set it to the side and forgot and let the garlic in it dehydrate in to hard little cementy blobs, it came clean just fine in the dishwasher.
I have little hands (I never really knew this until I tried to squish three cloves of garlic). I couldn't get one hand around the handles to do the squeezing.
It can be hard to press (of course, as mentioned before, I have little hands - so maybe a big strong manly type man, or a women with a grip could do fine).
The handles become slippery if they get at all wet making it even harder to press. As long as I keep it to two cloves (hard to do because it would EASILY hold three or four and I'm lazy and impatient), I don't have any trouble smushing the garlic into submission.
Pros of Zyliss:
(1)It does press most of the garlic out. Slightly more if the cloves are prepeeled.
(2)It can press a few cloves at once.
(3)It comes with an attached cleaner, which is hard to lose.
(1) It is hard to squeeze multiple cloves, especially if the cloves are unpeeled.
(2) If you want to press multiple batches, you have to clean out the peels from the previous batch before proceeding.
(3) You do need to use the cleaner (or a bamboo skewer or other pointy device) to get the smashed peels out of the hopper.
(4)If the cloves are unpeeled, the garlic left behind is particularly tough to clean out because the holes are slighly recessed on the inside of the hopper. It is difficult to get anything in there that is effective at scrubbing the garlic out.
The Calphalon garlic press has built in spikes on the plunger. It pokes through the garlic skins and makes it easier to press the garlic. The skins stick to the spikes so when you open it back up, you just peel off the skins and move on to the next batch (or leave them, add more garlic to the hopper and keep pressing.) It doesn't allow garlic to squeeze up past the plunger. However, IF you decide to peel the garlic first, it does leave more behind than the Zyliss and it is then harder to clean the remaining garlic off the spikes. (Unpeeled, both the Calphalon and Zyliss leave a similar amount behind.) Not being willing to do any more work than is required, I simply solve that problem by not peeling first.Read more ›
