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.
Pampered chef has a much (much!) better version, which I have. I got this for my mom's house, since she didn't have one. This tries to make things complicated by adding a spring and other nonsense. My other garlic slicer is simple, efficient and easy to use.
If you like garlic, do get a garlic slicer though. They are amazing. Just don't get this one.
Difficult to load and does not hold large garlic cloves. Needed to cut larger cloves to be able to slice. Difficult to get lid to set in correctly. I would not recommend for anyone with grip issues or fine motor control issues.
I have to put the piece of garlic tightly into a small hole and then push with great force to close and twist the top closed so I can then slice. The slices are great, but the effort required trying to get it into the slicer is awful. Anyone who has strength issues for their hands would not be successful with using this.
Once I FINALLY figured out how to use this product, I was NOT impressed. You can only fit a few cloves in at one time, and chunks are left unsliced inside of the product. It is definitely NOT user friendly.....
