Not that great I don’t know what all the good reviews are about? It would just be quicker to chop garlic by hand and I was looking for another alternative. This alternative Requires many steps and there after you have to wash it etc. requires many steps and there after you have to wash it etc.
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 was disappointed with this. I can mince garlic twice as fast the old fashioned way and not have to be bothered with how all the tiny pieces go back together. I have no idea why someone thought a silicon sleeve would remove the garlic paper easier; it does not. It appears to be sturdy enough to do the job but this needs to go back to the drawing board.
Good idea in theory however if you’re trying to find shortcuts in the kitchen, this is not one. It has about five tiny parts to it so it’s just more to wash and keep track of. If you do not clean the parts right away the garlic adheres to it, making the metal grid part extremely difficult to clean because of the tiny spaces in between. Not worth it if you ask me. The silicon peeler was probably the best part of the whole thing.
It actually takes just as long as chopping with knife/cutting board because CLEANING this thing is so involved. If you have a dishwasher, perhaps that is not a problem. But I found it's easier to just chop the garlic the old fashioned way. I would not purchase a garlic press again from any manufacturer.
its super easy and quick to use. However, my biggest issue with this product is how difficult it is to clean the plastic part of the device. the garlic gets stuck and dries out. If you have good chopping skills, no need for this. if you cant use a knife, then maybe consider this product.
I was really excited when I bought this but i was disappointed when it wasn’t strong enough to cut all the way though. Garlic gets stuck and its a mess. The only reason i gave it 2 stars not 1 was because its super cute I really just wish it worked out :/
