To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The top presser portion was easy since there is a tray that just moves everything off. But it’s the metal wires that the garlic runs through that was difficult to clean. I tried a sponge and some of the sturdy side material got stuck. I tried a toothpick to poke some stuck garlic, didn’t work. I tried a scrub with long bristles and that didn’t work. Ended up returning it because while I did get the device clean, it was too much work to have to scrub so intensely and having to use tweezers to pick out small bits of stuck garlic.
We love garlic. Garlic is a pain to peel and cut up for the amount we like to use. This little gadget is AWESOME in design and function! My only regret is that the little rubber sleeve used to peel the garlic is smaller than some of the larger garlic cloves we've been getting recently but that hasn't bothered me too much. The way this little gadget has all the pieces snapped together and stored with the little drawer to hold the sliced or minced (depending on the cutting plate I use) is so convenient! The slicer itself is sharp and takes seconds to mince or slice garlic cloves. Easy to clean with an old toothbrush. This is my favorite new kitchen gadget!
Used to hate slicing garlic for several recipes that called for several cloves. This does the job in a flash. Time counts when I'm preparing food. However, sometimes I spend more time than I want cleaning it. Most times it's easy to clean. I decided cleaning can be done at my leisure. Bottom line, I'd hate to have to go back to hand slicing.
The product page says that the box will contain a dicing blade, slicing blade, skin peeler and clear container. I received two slicing blades, and no dicing blade. This did not meet my needs and the product was not a worthwhile purchase. Specifically, the feature that I wanted was to dice garlic, and my experience with this feature is that it was unavailable to me because the box did not contain the dicing blade, as advertised.
This gadget is NOT easy to clean. Garlic gets stuck in the grates and will not come out, even with a brush. You cannot simply grate a garlic clove. At least my cloves. The cloves are too fat to fit in the grater so they have to be cut at least in half. If I want to grate my garlic, I have a simple grater that does it in a few seconds. If I want to just chop my garlic into small pieces, I have a knife that will do it quite satisfactorily. All in all, I found this a waste of my money and it went into the garbage. $16 down the drain so to speak.
I’ve been frustrated at the traditional garlic press which basically only squeezes my garlic without cutting it up and tons of garlic still remain inside the little “container”. I had to take them out and chop them up which is totally counter-intuitive! This new garlic press is a game changer! It contains real “knives” instead of holes so once you press the garlic, it turns into fine pieces (or slices but I have not used that optional attachment yet) which is fine for me needs. It’s a great invention and I can tell the designers have put a lot of thought to design this great kitchen gadget. Well done! One only thing I have some reservation is the silicone garlic peeler does not seem to work but it’s not a deal breaker at all.
This product is awesome. It dices up the garlic in long pieces well, but since they’re so long, I usually push them through again just to make them smaller. It’s easy to clean, for the most part, I just wish I could get the little skin remover piece to work as well for me as it does in the pictures, but hey, at least it loosens the skin up a bit, even if I do have to manually peel it off after. Overall, good purchase, I’m quite pleased with the garlic mincer thingy.
I love this garlic grater! It works amazingly well, cleans easy and so cute! It doesn’t take up any room so I can leave it out for an easy grab. I love how easy it all stacks together. I use a little toothbrush to clean the grate if I my sink sprayer doesn’t get it all out. I love how the top pops off to clean the upper portion and the way you can rub the garlic on the removable tray bottom. Be sure to read the little tag that comes with it so you can figure it all out. At first I didn’t get that the clear cup pulls out and wondered how I’d get it clean. So easy and works great! I love it!
Can't believe it took me this long to find such a useful gadget. Previously I used a kitchen aid mini-chopper to mince garlic - which meant plugging it in, cleaning the blade/ container/ lid etc After purchasing the Mueller similar tool for chopping onions, I saw this item for garlic & bought it. I LOVE it! Love how the little plastic box holds the garlic so it's easier to get out than was the mini-chopper, and it's much easier to clean, running it under hot water. Even the green plastic "pouch" in the bottom works well at removing the garlic peel - that I always used to fight with!!! UPDATE: since my daughter no longer goes to Trader Joe's for frozen minced garlic cubes ( Covid wary), I just purchased a second one for her use- since I still rave about it!!
I prefer the white product from KI that is similar - bought as a gift but the size is not the same - I was trying to return within the 30 day window but it will not accept returns - really unfortunate - does not state return policy.
