I was so excited to get to try this garlic press. You have no idea how excited I was. Like a kid in a candy store excited. We use a lot of garlic in this house and it’s a pain to either chop by hand or wash the mini food processor that is on the counter because we used it the night before for chopping garlic.
Now, I’ve had and tried my fair share of garlic presses in my time. None of them have lasted. I even had one of those other, well known for their grips, garlic presses and, well, it’s no longer with us.
This press is not flimsy at all! It is 100% stainless steel. I can’t imagine it will rust or weaken in any way, shape or form. Even it if does, I can just let them know and get a new one! Imagine that!
If you have ANY problems with your Propresser Garlic Press FOR THE LIFETIME OF THE PRODUCT simply let me know and I will refund every penny of your purchase plus ship you another brand new unit FREE of charge
That’s from their order page on Amazon. You can’t beat a guarantee like that!
Not to mention, it’s pretty. So shiny with clean lines.
Seriously, just look at how pretty that is?? Um…yeah…the garlic I pressed with the peel on didn’t look like that. It was a bit THICKER in skin. LOL More on that later.
So, to say I was excited to try this press is an understatement. I think I did a happy dance when I received the garlic press in the mail. After watching the video I was even more thrilled to try this bad boy out! You mean you don’t have to peel the garlic? Oh. I’m ALL IN on that one!
It holds large, LARGE cloves of garlic. I think there was one that was well over 2 inches that I had to chop in half but both halves fit in the basket. I will hold LARGE cloves with no problem. Ignore the band-aid. It has nothing to do with the press. LOL
I tested it just like it’s shown in the video. I put a peeled cloves in the press. My hand has an 8 inch stretch, so those with small hands might have to use two, like in the video, but I was able to use it with just one hand.
And VOILA! Look at all that tasty, delicious garlic just ready to be infused in any recipe you want! I was impressed. And clean up?
Just some hot water, maybe a swipe with a brush or sponge for the more difficult pieces, and clean up was a breeze. A BREEZE! It took all of maybe one minutes to clean with just hot water.
The garlic here has a pretty thick skin. Not that it’s stubborn or is impervious to insults. Not that kind of thick skin. I mean, it’s not soft or pliable. It’s hard and thick. It’s…aged. So, I really didn’t have high hopes of this working as well as it did in the video. Just saying. I honestly didn’t think it would work at all.
I put the clove in the Propresser, squeezed, and then…
The garlic came out the front, and the back, and came showering down on my head. I kid you not. It came out the back, shot up in the air, and I was eu de garlic the rest of the night.
Now, I said I didn’t think it was going to work at all, but some did come out the front, and there was quite a bit of it out the back waiting to be scraped off, too. So, if your garlic is old, peel it. Unless you like eu de garlic.
So, there ya have it! In just a few short minutes, quite a bit of tasty garlic is ready to be used for cooking. Since then, S has used it and crushed 6 cloves, back to back, for the Shrimp Scampi Pasta Salad I’ll post later. He had no problems using it or cleaning it out and it took all of maybe 2 to 3 minutes to create 3 to 4 tablespoons of garlic.
This will be a staple in our kitchen and will, more than likely, remain on the counter for us to use all the time!
