Can anyone recommend a garlic press that actually presses the garlic into and through the little holes?<br><br>
I've bought a few, and I can't seem to find one that works the way it is supposed to. All they do basically, is make juicy smashed garlic and then I have to chop the mushy garlic w/ a knife anyway.<br><br>
So, if anyone has found one that works well for them, I would love to hear about it. Thanks!!

We ditched the garlic press (do they ever really work? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: ) for a microplane. I think that we might even use less garlic since the microplane makes it really fine and the flavor is more evident.

I have a pampered Chef garlic press that works real well. It even comes with a cleaning tool. My boyfriends sister got it for us. I've owned many garlic presses but really love this one.<br><a href="https://www.pamperedchef.com/ordering/prod_details.tpc?prodId=239&catId=123" target="_blank">https://www.pamperedchef.com/orderin...=239&catId=123</a><br>
We have noticed that organic garlic and regular store bought garlic has a different consistancy.

I couldn't get the Pampered Chef link to work so ours may be very similar but we have one by Zyliss that's great. I go between using the press and just smashing the garlic with a big chef's knife.

Theres one called Susi... made in Switzerland. I have found them at various kitchen stores. I always busted others after having them for only a month or so. These ones are great... We eat A LOT! of garlic. They last for years and years. My parents still have thiers from when I was a kid.

Pampered Chef all the way. I also have the Zyliss and prefer my PC one over it any day. It has a bigger opening for more/bigger garlic cloves and a wider, contoured handle for your hands to squeeze, making it way more comfortable to use.

My MIL talked me into ditching our press for a mortar and pestle, and I am so happy with that decision. If you add a little salt to the garlic, it grinds into a perfect paste. It works great, and is way easy to clean.
