Product Description

Product Description

The worst part about pressing garlic is peeling it beforehand, but with the Zyliss Susi De Luxe Garlic Press, there's no need. Just put the clove, skin and all, into the nonstick chamber and squeeze the ergonomic handles then watch how the garlic pulp and juice pass through while the peel stays behind. The second worst part about pressing garlic is cleaning the tool afterwards—but that's taken care of, too. A blue plastic cleaning gadget gets into those hard-to-reach spots, and stores securely inside the press when not in use. Dishwasher safe. Gray. Imported. 6Lx2W".

Zyliss, the Swiss maker of quality kitchen accessories, has refined the garlic press into a streamlined kitchen tool. There's no need to tediously peel garlic before pressing any longer--just place the whole clove into the press and squeeze. The peelings remain in the receptacle and garlic bits and juice are pressed out. The press is easily cleaned with the accompanying cleaning tool, which is conveniently stored in the handle so it won't be misplaced. Just match up the cleaner pegs with the holes in the garlic press to remove remaining peelings. Also, its aluminum construction makes this item dishwasher-safe. --Pamela Zytnicki

Warning: Kuhn-Rikon put up a DIFFERENT item than the Zyliss Susi Garlic Press and I wrote this review in 2002. So this review was for an older stye garlic press, but now the listing is for a different press. I'm sorry about that, but if vendors re-use listings where old reviews hang out, what can you do? So after discovering my 13 year old review was "hijacked", I've revised it. If you want to read a review about the Zyliss Susi, you got it, further down. The Kuhn-Rikon Epicurean Garlic Press, which is different. The Kuhn-Rikon is larger, has a bigger compartment, and actually is superior to the Susi. It is more than twice the price, however. You won't have the problem of the coating on the Susi wearing off (that happened to me) and you can remove the sieve portion of the Epicurean Garlic Press for easier cleaning. Garlic is sticky and if you let it dry out, the sieve gets clogged nd is not easy to clean. The handle is curved ergonomically to deliver more pressure--so you can use this for ginger juice, as well because it will crush the fibrous root. This model was recommended by America's Test Kitchen, but they also found the older Zyliss Susi to be just as good. If you have smaller hands, you may want the Zyliss.

To find the Susi by Zyliss, Zyliss Susi 3 Garlic Press is the newer version and will save you some money. If price is no object, the Kuhn-Rikon is top-o-the-line. The Susi is updated from the old round style base, to a newer, more oblong base with an improved cleaning tool. I like it fine.

If you're looking at this item, get it. It's that good.
I worked in a kitchen store for a few years and we sold a dozen kinds, but this was the answer to the words "garlic press" any time they were barked in our direction.
It does peel the garlic. It is very easy to clean. It's clove to minced in as long as it takes for you to squeeze the handle. Sometimes I don't even need to use the cleaning piece (stores in the unit, lines up with the extraction holes and pushes excess out of them), just run it under some water.
It won't break under normal use. It won't stop working. It'll last for a good, long while. You can get cheaper garlic presses, and if you maybe just want to use one once that likely won't work as well, a cheapo is fine--but this product does the job perfectly every time.
Since I got my own Zyliss, the jars of minced garlic are lonely in my fridge--I never use them and I put fresh garlic in anything and everything--big time garlic lover, and this thing is the answer.

This is the best garlic press I've used (and there've been more than a few of 'em). I've owned mine for 4 years and had nary a problem. It's one of the few presses which doesn't allow the majority of the clove being pressed to ooze (or even better, squirt) around the press hammer (hmmm...seems like as good a term as any).
The teflon coating makes clean-up a snap even if you don't wash the press immediately...just run hot water over it for a bit. DON'T use a knife or other sharp object which will scratch the finish.
The plastic goring accessory is usually unnecessary and rarely simple to find in the bottomless pit of my tools drawer although it's royal blueness aids the search. I normally just use my finger in a soapy bath of some other soaking pot. Perhaps attaching it to the press in some manner (like the Brookstone which simply swivels directly into place).
Zyliss creates quality products. I also love their parmesan cheese grater which I've owned for over 5 years. Well worth the few extra dollars, or Deutschmarks in my case.

I have owned numerous other garlic presses and never felt compelled to spend over $10 for one until a sales clerk finally convinced me to try a Zyliss. WOW! I threw out the last of my remaining cheapies. I never imagined such a difference was possible. I know I will never again trust a different press. YES... it is THAT good. Why?

1. Other presses I have owned did not work adequately unless the garlic was trimmed and peeled. This one eats up unpeeled cloves and strains them perfectly every time.

2. Other metal presses I have used have broken through in the area of the straining holes after a period of time due to fatigue of their poor materials. This is a svelte lightweight that weighs a small fraction of other presses. I expected it might not hold up at all. It turns out it is made of a very strong aluminum alloy that one might imagine being used in aircraft. It is quite thin, but it feels SO rigid I don't think I will ever have to replace it.

3. The included cleaning tool makes getting strands out of the holes a snap. The tool is stored under the hinge out of the way, but is easy to get to when you need it.

4. In the end, what I get most out of it is the simple pleasure of using it... I look forward to its every use. Instead of crushing and squirting inconsistent pulp, the Zyliss passes garlic crisply and perfectly in one quick motion accompanied by a satisfying 'crunch'. I know it seems a bit weird to obsess over a garlic press, but for one who truly enjoys and is serious about cooking it is like that favorite pan or knife without which cooking would not be the same. This press works so beautifully, it may actually inspire you think of garlic-laden dishes to prepare... just to use it again!
