These are a few of my favorite things... garlic press
My garlic press.
I admit, I stumbled on this one. I was at a kitchen store and just happened to pick it up. It RULES. The Zyliss garlic press has a hinge on it so the garlic doesn't squirt out the sides or the back where there is a gap because of the arc in the pressing motion... If you don't understand what I am saying, go try your grandmother's garlic press. Then come back when you are covered in garlic juice and still have to mince it, and buy one of these. Its not the easiest to clean as it doesn't have one of those plug backs that forces the garlic back through all the little holes so you can remove the leftovers, but I just force it out with water pressure by putting it flush with the faucet or use a brush. I don't care if there are tiny bits left. It only gets used for garlic after all. Truly this is a staple of my kit hen. Seems like everything I make has garlic in it!
