the best garlic press
i hear people rant and rave about the zyliss garlic press
but i found that this
is the king of them all. what you can't tell from this photo is that the basket flips out on the same axis that the press backing is on, exposing the entire press for easy cleaning; no special cleaning tool required. it's hard to explain but once you see it you'll know what i mean.
the basket itself is generously large enough to handle two or three cloves at once. i even mashed the juice out of a thumb of ginger in this thing -- not easy, but rugged enough to handle it.
five clams, and worth triple that.
