Cooks like to concentrate on the food, not the performance of their tools. This Epicurean Garlic Press makes preparing garlic so effortless - no chopping, slicing or forcing cloves through a fine sieve only to lose half to an incompetent tool. Designed with ease in mind, the stainless press requires little force and the sieve pulls out for easy cleaning, so you are left to enjoy wonderfully spicy sauces, spreads, marinades and more. Great gift for garlic lovers.
This garlic press is on the pricey end, but it really is great. The hopper is not too large -- only big enough for one clove, but it's a great design, easy to hold and squeeze. And, most importantly, does a great job mincing the garlic. Also, it's easy to clean, as long as you clean it (or put it in water) right after you use it. I also like that it is stainless steel.
I purchased this product based on the excellent review and recommendation of Cook's Illustrated and the fact that it is stainless steel. I've used two different Zyllis garlic presses, along with one from OXO, in the past. I was happy with the ease of use and cleanability of the Zyllis. However, the coating on the anodized aluminum started chipping off, even though I only hand washed it. Although the Epicurean presses takes minimal hand stregth to press the garlic, I do not like how the garlic squeezes through the various spaces between the moving parts. Also, it's difficult to get a sponge or brush into those spaces to clean the press. I wouldn't buy the Epicurean again. In fact, I'm thinking of replacing it.
Very poor design. You'll press your fingers, and maybe get a few bits of crushed garlic in the process.

This garlic press is a joy to use. I love that it's stainless steel. The only things I don't like are that garlic squishes out other places besides the holes, and if my hands are a little slick it's hard to get a good enough grip to squeeze the press. Other than that, it's wonderful & I'm glad I bought it.

Garlic presses are convenient when you've got lots of garlic that needs to be crushed very fine. Though you still have to peel the garlic, you're still saving yourself lots of knife work. Pressed garlic also cooks more quickly and adds a more subtle flavor than garlic that's been minced with a knife. But because the pieces are smaller, be sure to watch it carefully to make sure it doesn't burn in the pan.
