This helpful kitchen utensil crushes garlic cloves
through a grid of small holes creating mushy garlic paste that can be
easily added to your concoction. This process is not only easy, but also
efficient. The press crushes the plant's cell walls releasing that
strong garlic flavor. You can even press the clove through the press
without removing the skin. Clean up is quick, with no garlic aroma on
You can find a garlic press at any kitchenware store. Prices range from $15 to $30 depending on brand and materials.
