Cooking essentials- the garlic press

Okay, I promise this is not another lecture from me about the health benefits of garlic.

This IS a post about how wonderful garlic presses are!!! What IS a garlic press? It's a gadget that's used to press garlic cloves through a perforated grid to extract the pulp and juice from the garlic.

Look at the picture...

See those little holes? The garlic clove gets pushed through there and out it comes all mashed up and ready to use!!

I will often use my knife to chop my garlic, but sometimes I don't feel like chopping and pull out my garlic press. I just LOVE it!!

glad2bheld- I LOVE Pampered Chef!! I had to stop going to the parties because I kept finding new little things that I "had" to have! LOL!!!

Great idea, Julieann!!!! I never would have thought about playdoh hair!!!! Please tell your daughter "thank you" for the tip!! I'm going to try it soon!! :)

Nancy- fortunately for me, I've never had a problem cleaning mine. I guess I'm blessed!! :) I'm sorry the garlic gets stuck in the holes!!! No fun!!!

We love ours too! Gosh, I think we bought ours almost twenty years ago when we saw the Frugal Gourmet using his. I use it all of the time.
