How do you rate a garlic press? If it works, I guess. This one does. I see some specific negative comments, so I'll try to address those issues. First, it does the basic job. Put in unpealed cloves, press, and get pureed garlic out, leaving peals behind. I didn't find it to take any extraordinary pressure. You're putting a raw product with skin through tiny holes. You do have to squeeze. Get over it. I found it pretty easy to clean. Flip it around the other way, and tiny pegs push debris out of the tiny holes. Holding it under a running faucet when you're done with it seems to finish off the debris. I can't comment on the dishwasher leaving water under the handle grips, because I don't put my cooking tools in the evil dishwasher. Feels substantial, and I obviously can't say much about the comments that the hinge pin is weak unless and until mine breaks, which it hasn't.A garlic press isn't an essential tool. It's just an easy way to reduce a few cloves to a fine puree for when you don't want palpable pieces to appear in the food. I can smash, skin, and dice a bunch of cloves more quickly and easily with the side of a knife and my fingers than with a press, so I don't use it constantly.
4Not Bad for Eight Years.
This is not the lowest maintenance garlic press, although it's fine for the $11. Requires a little special attention in cleaning, does not come out of my very excellent Bosch dishwasher clean. Hopper is a little small. The handle broke right off tonight, after eight years of service.
3A kitchen neccesity
Every home cook needs a garlic press. The stuff that comes in a jar has a distinct metallic flavor, and while the people with television shows can do a great job cutting up garlic with a knife, they're professionals. Yes, you can get pretty much the same flavor by chopping, but you'll still get little lumps that will mess with the texture. You can live without it, but you can also follow the recipes on soup cans -- that's eating, not cooking.That said, a garlic press is still a B list item. It should be easy to use, easy to clean, and provide a reasonably even distribution of well crushed garlic, but the price should still be affordable. The Trudeau, rated a best buy by Cook's Illustrated, meets these standards. It's well made, apparently highly durable, and cleans easily under running water (although a spray helps -- this is true of just about every press). The price is good for what you get.I bought this to replace an old, bargain price garlic press that required two hands for a single clove, and was a pain to clean -- and that's my only personal comparison. The Trudea needn't replace a satisfactory press, but for a first purchase it's a good choice at a fair price, and compared to some of the garlic presses on the market it's a real step up.
4It works, but it's not great
My old enamel garlic press finally bit the dust. I spent months searching for a replacement but never found one even remotely similar. It was lightweight and easily minced the garlic through fairly large holes. I loved it!I really wanted to love this one too, but I don't. It's quite heavy and you have to have a vice-like grip to squeeze the cloves. (I can barely squeeze it all the way, and I'm pretty strong.) It mostly just mashes the cloves and leaves you a wad of pulp. I do like the self-cleaning feature, but I'd rather have a press like my old one. I'll keep hunting.*******************OK, I wrote this ten months ago and have upgraded my rating from two stars to four. I do like this garlic press, mainly because of the large holes and the self-cleaning feature. I still don't like it as well as my old one, but it's a good press, for the most part. The main drawback is you have to be really strong to squeeze it all the way, so for older people this would not work.
4The best garlic press ever! (Revised)
I am a garlic freak - use minced garlic in almost all the meals I prepare. So why have I spent so many years using crappy garlic presses? I've tried them all and until the Trudeau model, I never realized what I've been missing. Don't laugh, but I brought the Trudeau to a "girls night out" dinner a few weeks back to show my gal pals.Like the other reviews say, this is one powerful tool. I feel like Superwoman when I use it. You can press multiple cloves at one time, and can also mince garlic without peeling. (I prefer not to as the unpeeled minced garlic looks an unappetizing green.)Haven't had any problems with cleanup. The mashed-up garlic residue cleans up pretty easily. There's only one negative thing I can say about the press - after many washings, the inside of the metal cage that holds the garlic is looking a little discolored.Edit: Two years ago I was mincing garlic and this press broke apart. It was good while it lasted but I was disappointed that it broke so easily. I've revised this product from 5 stars to 3. I've since bought the OXO steel garlic press and couldn't be happier.
3Well built but can be difficult to clean; Broken after 1 year
This press has some heft to it, which I like. I don't feel like I'm going to break it if I squeeze hard. Because I can put some more pressure on this press, I don't feel obligated to take the skin off the garlic before using this press. It seems to work fine this way, and it saves me some time.I don't know if there is a garlic press which IS easy to clean, but it can sometimes be difficult to get residual garlic out of this one. Actually, leaving the skins on makes it easier for me to get most of this out since it mostly comes out with the skin.UPDATE: After a year I finally broke this one. The metal that holds the pin finally snapped. Also, the rubber handle had started to slip off the handle which made it even more difficult to use. I have to buy a new press, but I won't be buying this one again. It was ok considering the price, but I'm going to see if I can find something better.
This press seemed great at first. I had bought it because of a recommendation from America's Test Kitchen who seems to know what they're talking about. The press had 3 days of use before the handle snapped on me so my cheap Ikea garlic press had to finish the job. Very disappointed in this product.
1Does it's job
This garlic press does it's job well, but it isn't quite perfect.Pros:1. Large enough to stick 2 garlic cloves in at once2. No juice leaks out of the side3. It's got some weight to it, is not flimsy, and seems like it'll last a long time4. Easy to clean with the dimpled portion - just flip it backwards and excess garlic peels come off5. Can put unpeeled cloves in it (but I've had better luck after peeling them)Cons:1. It doesn't seem to mince all the garlic, and there is some waste left over after using it. I'm not sure how this compares to other garlic presses though, so it could be unavoidable.2. If a garlic clove peel is thick, pressing the handles together can be quite difficult and it's hard to get all the garlic mincedOverall though, this was a great investment, especially for the price
Works great. I use this almost everyday. Cleans easily under faucet. Holds up in dishwasher. Comfortable in my small hands and doesn't require much effort to squeeze. Crushes garlic well, leaves only thin skin like amount inside with a small amount on sides of press which is easily removed for use. The rubber fingers work well to clean the holes. It is also a good value. I had my old aluminum garlic press for over 20 years and this is a major improvement.
Maybe the best garlic press made. This is my second one of these. First one broke after about 5 years of use. Had I handwashed it rather than putting it in the dishwasher it probably would have lasted another 5 years. Message is....don't use the dishwasher for knives or kitchen utensils like this one.
