Best Garlic Press

Many of us have had the experience of crushing garlic with the back of a spoon or the side of a knife. This can result in a messy, garlic infused chopping board and garlic hands. Not to mention the strong smell of garlic you can wear all day. Well now, you and or your cutting board smelling like garlic doesn't have to happen. A garlic press is a great tool to make the messy task of mincing or crushing garlic easy. I wanted garlic presses that were sturdy, have comfortable handles and were easy to clean. Check out my picks and see which garlic press fits your taste.

This garlic press is my favorite. I adore the Zyliss Susi 3 Garlic Press because it does more than the standard press. This sturdy nonstick coating makes cleaning a breeze. You can bend handles back and remove the skins. The bowl for crushing is much larger than most and can accommodate three cloves at a time. It will mince your garlic cloves without peeling and keep the smell of garlic off of your hands. The ergonomic handles provide comfort when squeezing, has a built in cleaning mechanism and it's dishwasher safe. This is a must-have, top of line garlic press.
