Okay, so we had a fabulous staff party the other night… and we decided to figure out… once and for all, what our favorite garlic press was…
I’ve had my Zyliss garlic press for years and love how well it works… what I have noticed though from other customers who have purchased it, is that if put in the dishwasher, instead of hand washing… eventually the finish will wear away.
The down side to this press is that it is the garlic press that I get returns on the MOST. What happens? People use too much force on the press and end up “snapping” the joint… so I would advise against this press if you are Hercules!
As a group… we all did like how well this little guy worked and personally I would have this one and another garlic press because I would use this garlic pro for when I wanted minced garlic bits and my press when I wanted mashed garlic (garlic juice drips into dish).
Ranked #1 by: Amanda and the Consumer Report was the Chef ‘n Garlic Press because it was the easiest to press… Amanda thought that seniors with joint pain would find this garlic press the easiest to use. Personally we have not had this product very long so I’m unsure of it’s performance long term, but it does seem to be well made.
… so as you can see… we all have very unique tastes. So our plan of attack in the future? To keep stocking these fabulous four and keep our eyes open for even better ones!
