I like garlic, a lot. When I was growing up it seemed like my parents used garlic in everything. Spaghetti Sauce. Meatloaf. Hamburgers. Garlic Bread. Bologna. Pizza. Chicken Pot Pie. Lucky Charms. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches. You know, all the normal recipes that call for garlic. It probably has something to do with them being from the old country. I’m not sure which one, just that it was old. Something that rhymes with Detroit I think. Oh yeah, Kentucky and Indiana. So being from the old country they had a reasonable fear of vampires. You know, the sort of fear that goes back for hundreds of weeks. I’m not sure if they’re as afraid of werewolves, does garlic even work on werewolves? It might also have some health benefits. I don’t know what they might be, but it’s a vegetable so it probably has some health benefits.
The problem with garlic is that in order to use it you have to get the clove out of its wrapper thingy. And then once you have it out of the wrapper you have to get the individual garlic thingy out of its skin. Those are a pain. You end up with garlic all over your hands and your hands smell like garlic. Not to mention the fact that some of us are accident prone and tend to bleed all over whatever it is we are cooking because we sliced up our fingers trying to get the garlic out of the skin. Bloody garlic is just gross. Ask any vampire (except Edward).
What were we talking about again?
Oh yeah. So if you like non-bloody garlic, you need a garlic press, and I love the Premium Garlic Press from Priority Chef. Easy to use, stainless steel, dishwasher safe. This is a heavy duty garlic mincing machine. It will definitely keep the blood off the garlic and the smell of garlic off your hands. The smell of garlic coming out of your pores I can’t help with, it’s garlic after all.

I love that my new garlic press is a strong kitchen gadget that I am able to add to my collection. I am also thrilled that it is made out of industrial strength stainless steel so it won’t rust. Have you looked at your silverware recently? Enough said. The company states that you are able to mince several cloves of unpeeled garlic at once and I had to give it a try … it totally does! I have to admit that one of my favorite parts about my new press is that it is dishwasher safe. Have you tried cleaning a garlic press by hand before? Depending on how the press is made it is difficult to get inside of the “chamber” where the gloves are crushed or garlic gets caught on the little nooks and crannies. All I have to do is place my garlic press in the dishwasher and wait for the cycle to run. Score! This is a quality product and one that I am thrilled to have added to my repertoire.
