|nice even slices of garlic|
When I picked up this product in the store and saw it did both pressing and slicing...and it had a little cleaning tool, well, I mulled it over ... picking it up, putting it down, picking it up again. It was $19.99 at Macy's in Austin ($17.99 online) and I finally decided to go for it.
I gave it a try Monday morning. First, I tried pressing without peeling. Despite many television chefs telling you to just drop the unpeeled garlic in the press and go to work pressing...I've not been so successful with that. This one did press it through with a bit of effort ...but not as well as a peeled garlic clove. That, it did quite well!

The slicer did a great job (obviously I used a peeled clove for that). Nice even slices. It says on the packaging "as thin as 1/16th of a clove. Hmmm, not sure what they mean by that...there seems to be a potential for 8 slices...no adjustment appears available. Still, 8 slices is good and they are all uniform...which I like.
