You may think it insane to pay over $30.00 for a garlic press. This Kuhn-Rikon garlic press is hands down the best garlic press I have ever used. If my memory serves me right, I found out about it on one of the PBS cooking shows on Saturday afternoons. I think it was a product testing of garlic presses on Cook’s Country.
Anyway . . . I splurged and purchased it and I am so glad I did! I use garlic in my recipes several times a week, so this kitchen tool is a workhorse in my food preparation. It will press garlic or ginger and you can even press unpeeled garlic.
The main reason it is so superior to other garlic presses I have owned is that it requires such little effort to use. For a woman with not a lot of physical strength, (me), I appreciate that! Another thing I love is that it is so easy to clean. When I am finished with it, I just flip out the hinge and rinse the sieve and flush all the garlic skins out, then pop it into the dishwasher.
If you have a foodie in your life (perhaps yourself) do yourself a favor and invest in this great kitchen tool that you will literally never have to replace. You will thank yourself every time you use it.
