You'll be following the advice of America's foodies when we tell you that this hand-held press is an easy, fast and very efficient way to mince your garlic. How easy? You don't even have to peel the garlic clove from its dry leafy cover. Just place a single clove into its built in-stainless steel basket, then bring the solid silicone handles together. That's it. Unlike other presses, the extruder has beveled holes that finely cut the clove rather than bruising it. You'll notice the difference in fuller flavor. The compact design is powerful, too, extruding virtually the entire clove. That means less leftover pieces inside for easier clean-up.
