This is an excellent garlic press. Its double-pivot gear mechanism and strong nylon handles apply tremendous leverage on the pressing plate, so it requires little hand strength to operate. Pressed through the fine holes in the screen, a whole garlic clove is quickly crushed to an even consistency.
The press opens wide and the stainless-steel screen swings out from the side walls of the hopper, allowing easy cleaning. (Not suitable for ginger.) Dishwasher safe. A well-designed tool.
