As anyone that uses fresh garlic in their recipes knows, mincing garlic can sometimes be tedious, especially if you need a lot of it for a large recipe. You are peeling, mincing, scraping, and releasing those great oils that bring out the awesome garlic flavor in your meals. You are left with very stinky hands, because lets face it...garlic smells and taste great in your recipes, but not so much on your hands. It is also pretty hard to get rid of the smell!
I make Italian food at least once a week, and as such, find myself using a lot of garlic. I was getting tired of the stinky hands, and had even tried the pre-minced jarred garlic...I wouldn't recommend it! So when I was given the chance to test and review this garlic press from Orblue, you know I jumped at it!
When the press arrived, it came right on time, as it was pasta night and I was making a batch of sauce. I put it to work crushing a few cloves of garlic. I tried it both with and without the skin on the cloves, and it worked well on both. The cavity is large, so I was able to put large cloves in. It didn't take much pressure at all to crush the clove, then I just scrapped the garlic off the press, and added it to my sauce.
I really wish I had snapped a picture of it in use, but I was so excited to use it, that it totally slipped my mind. However, if you want to see it in use, please click HERE and check out the YouTube video!
Perfect crushed garlic, no stinky hands! Even better, the process by which the garlic is squeezed through the press, brought out all the great oils that give you that delicious garlic flavor.
