I’m not mincing words when I say the Propresser Garlic Press is very easy to use, and to clean! Not really being a connoisseur (meaning I don’t really buy all that many) kitchen gadgets as I don’t cook all that often (my husband does most of the cooking!), I was quite impressed when I took the Propresser Garlic Press out of the box, with its really nice stainless steel body and large basket area. It has a bit of weight to it, unlike my inexpensive aluminum model, but does not feel overly heavy when using it. The ergonomic handles of the Propresser are rounded for easy grip, and have a matte finish to minimize slipping.
I was not too sure about mincing garlic cloves with the skin on, but decided to try it and I was pleasantly surprised. With just one big squeeze I got at least 98% of the garlic through the press and was left with an almost dry peel in the basket. Cleanup was very easy since the basket pops up so you can reach both sides easily. I rinsed my Propresser Garlic Press with dish detergent and warm water and it came out shiny clean with no garlic odor left on the stainless steel. My only suggestion would be to include a little brush to use when cleaning out the basket.

The Propresser Garlic Press would make an awesome wedding or shower gift – pair it up with some pasta, fancy olive oil and a pretty ceramic bowl and voile, a unique gift that will be used for years! Another great use for the Propresser is mincing ginger, which I find really hard to do by hand, and is a great addition to smoothies!
I would highly recommend the Propresser Garlic Press for its ease of use and ease of cleaning!
