Tough on garlic, easy on arthritic hands

Pros:Easy to use, makes quick work of garlic for recipes

Cons:Can be messy and hard to clean

As someone who frequently cooks Mediterranean menus heavy on fresh garlic, the Oxo garlic press is a chef's best friend. Rubber-coated handles make gripping and squeezing more user friendly than all-metal garlic presses, and cleanup is a snap. Like most garlic presses, you can choose to pre-peel the garlic before pressing it, but you'll still need to clean the press in-between uses. It comes with a built-in cleaner, and usually a quick run under the tap will remove most debris. The garlic comes out as more of a paste than it would if you were to chop it, and is a much faster way to add flavor to soups, salads, and more with minimal effort.

I've owned my Oxo press for years and haven't had any of the problems that other reviewers mentioned (handles falling off, hinge breaking). I do usually hand-wash, and I don't prepeel my garlic, and the press is still going strong 2+ years later. Perhaps my press was subject to different quality control standards: I bought it several years ago and had it stored until recently.
