Not for me

ProThere aren't any!!

ConsIt doesn't work

I read a review by mollymoo818 a few days ago about her garlic press, I remember she paid £4 for hers from Tesco because I paid £4 for mine from Asda and they sound identical. Mine was in a drawer even though it works so badly that I hadn't used it for months, mollymoo's review inspired me to...

Garlic Press I am a real lover of all things Italian like as I love my pasta and pizza and generally all those items that are caked in garlic and full of flavour. With this said I also like to make my spaghetti bolognese and lasagne from scratch and of course I use a few cloves of fresh garlic to...

“Does my breath smell?”

published 27/01/2014

ProEasy to use, excellent price

ConsNone

Ever since I moved into my first house, we have had a garlic press in the cupboard that I have only really started to use in the past couple of years. Previous to using, I either avoided adding garlic to food or ended up trying to chop up but ending up with big chunks of it in my food. Price and...

ProCrushes evenly.

ConsBasic item

I have acquired many useful and useless kitchen-related items since discovering my interest in (and borderline addiction to) kitchen gadgets and cooking implements over 25 years ago. I am fortunate that our home has a reasonable amount of storage space. This, combined with my preference to never...

“Crush Those Bulbs”

ProEasy to use, stops your finger smelling

ConsCheap ones easily bend out of shape, hard to clean

My husband has a habit of buying me some form of kitchen gadget as one of my birthday presents or as a stocking filler at Christmas and one of the first ones he ever bought me was a garlic press. I absolutely love putting garlic in things like Bolognese sauces and chilli so a garlic press is...

It was only when I really started to cook a few more meals from scratch when I moved in with my now husband that I really had need for many kitchen gadgets – and a garlic press was definitely one of those in that category. I didn’t know quite how many dishes actually contained garlic until that...

ProAffordable

ConsNot very strong

I absolutely love the smell and taste of garlic. I use it for a really wide range of recipes and to be honest, I add it to almost every meal that I cook! One of my favourite snacks at the moment is avocado on toast which is mashed up avocado with lemon juice and salt and pepper, and it also has...

This is the the normal way to do a garlic. Take a garlic in your hand. Apply pressure on the top and split it open between your thumb and finger. Use both your hands preferably. Once the garlic is open and the individual clover are exposed take one of the cloves and gently pull it out of the...

INTRODUCTION- Some gadgets you buy and never use, wheras some like this really improve the quality of your cooking. I hate big lumps of garlic in my food but I love the flavour. This tool helps you get the flavour and press it into small parts that can be cooked easily in dishes. I have a garlic...

Tesco garlic press I bought a garlic press from Tesco to replace the one I had where the handle had snapped. The garlic press was only £4 and I didn’t think twice about it because I thought a garlic press was a garlic press at the end of the day. I only needed to use the press for a couple of...

Review of Garlic Press I have used and owned the same garlic press for many years. Mine is made of stainless steel and cost me less than £5 and I bought it from a hypermarket though it was so long ago I cannot remember which one. I use it regularly and I have never had the need to have to replace...

The humble garlic press is a tool that you could possibly live without, however it makes life much easier, unless you have the knife skills of Jamie Oliver. I have a garlic press bought from Tesco and I bought it because I was becoming lazy and buying pureed garlic in a squeeze tube and it was...

*~* Garlic Press *~* Thanks to everyone who kindly rated my two previous reviews on two of my Pyrex kitchen items, I will not attempt a review of my very own garlic press, which has perhaps seen better days but I can’t bear to part with it as it does such a super job. I’ve owned the same little...

It doesn't matter which garlic press you get, but I sincerely believe that this should be the first kitchen utensil you buy. I have a Zyliss SUSI garlic press (www.zyliss.com) which I purchased in 1975 in a store in Chicago! With all my moves and relocating, I've never lost this item, and I use...

For years I prepared garlic using a chopping board and a sharp knife, first slicing thinly in one direction, then the other. After making pieces as small as possible, I squashed them on a saucer, with the bowl of a tablespoon. In theory, this brings the juices out. In practice, it spattered bits...
