Garlic Press and Peeler Set Review

Garlic Press and Peeler Set Review

Link to my review on Amazon:



***My Personal Review***

Works great - I don't normally press my own garlic I just use the store-bought already-minced stuff. But I know it is much tastier and healthier to do it yourself. It is made from stainless steel, but is fairly light and sturdy and very easy to handle. The press is smooth and it is not hard to use, it doesn't stick or get caught on itself like a lot of cheaper kitchen items do. I found that it handles even the larger garlic cloves like a dream! Plus it also cleans up very easily - I was a little worried about the tiny holes not cleaning well because I have a spatula like that and it gives me problems. But as long as I cleaned it right after using it or at least washed it off in hot water the pieces came right out and no mess :)
 I found it easy to use and easy on my hands. I have carpal tunnel and sometimes it flares up while I am cooking or baking which is hard because those are 2 of my favorite activities! I love using fresh ingredients but have a very hard time grinding things or mincing, so I just buy the stuff from the store. The other great thing about this press is that the cloves do NOT have to be peeled before putting them in the press. And we all know that garlic is like onion - it is EXTREMELY difficult to get that smell out of your hands. So not having to peel them first is a big deal. I can imagine that you could use this with other ingredients you want to mince such as onions or ginger or possibly olives/capers. This would be a superb item for any chef - professional or not. It is definitely a great addition to my kitchen and since I LOVE garlic now I can have the freshest available in my meals :)

The Peeler that comes with this set is amazing as well - it really gets the job done with little mess and is much easier and safer than using a knife. Very high quality set, highly recommended for even professional chefs!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
