garlic press

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

has anyone ever seen this type of garlic press? it is a tube(clear plastic) that you put your peeled garlic into, then 'screw' down to press the garlic out of the bottom holes..the whole thing comes apart and cleans pretty easily...it is really a great great tool and presses atleast 3 times the amount of a regular press...there is no writing or trademark symbol anywhere..can't even remember where i got it, but have never seen another one..

Durangojoey,

 

They're sold on Amazon as the Chef'n Garlic Machine.

 

We are not amused,

thanks chefs for the info..pete, some rum in that coffee might help! the gadget i have has a larger  diameter screw that is nearly the same diameter as the shaft, so maybe better fit? pressure? or since its a solid piece its less likely to break....am glad to see the new different ones are still around...bdl...you are not amused because of what? the name of the gadget? the gadget itself, or the fact that i don't use my ninja knife skills to mince the garlic in the first place?...sometimes, i just get lazy...i don't really have many gadgety things really, and my garlic comes peeled in 5# containers..sometimes when i'm cooking at home and want a ton of garlic on/in something( like linguine with clam sauce), i pull it out to save time..then i am amused! thanks again...

I was given a Williams Sonoma gift card some holidays back. I couldn't find anything I thought was worth the money and went with an outrageously expensive Rosle garlic press. As with most modern designs, the perforated part swings out which really simplifies cleaning and it presses pretty well. Open it up, slip out the fibrous remains and the dishwasher can handle the rest.  I don't know about the other similar cheaper brands, but I do like this Rosle quite a bit.

 

Rosle is spelled with an umlauted o but  my keyboard is not Germanic enough to pull that off without specialized character codes I'm too lazy to look up and insert.

I admit I mince garlic by hand too so this isn't essential, but I've come to use it more for the one or two garlic clove recipes. More than that and I usually go with the knife.

The roll and crush garlic crusher is amazing!  Can crush walnuts and more.  Easy to roll like a rolling pin and hands do not smell like garlic afterwards. Check it out  

Ashtongreen.com or

I bought the Kuhn Rikon epicurean press that Nicko recommended in a previous thread and I've been pretty happy with it.

Yeah! Like I'm about to part with nearly US$40 for a single purpose "gadget". What, may I inquire, is wrong with the side of a Chef knife???

I am on my third garlic press. The first was both difficult to press and to clean, the next difficult to clean, but the last one, a Rosle, is fantastic. Easy to use and simple to clean! The only drawback is its high price! But I started watching it (and hoping to catch a sale) when it was about $25, then when it approached $30, decided to spring. Now that the price has gone higher still,  I feel I got a "bargain".

I have the same garlic press as you.  I am also looking for the same press and can't seem to find this one.  Did you ever have any luck?  You inquired a year ago.  There aren't any markings on mine either and the screw does fill the entire tube.  Let me know if you found one.  Thanks, Leslie

Thanks Joey,

 

It was you that I ment to write to.  You had mentioned a screw type garlic press where the inside piece is almost the same diameter as the clear outside piece.  That is the type that I have and it really works great.  I have seen the Chef n garlic machine but the screw piece is much more slender.  Thanks for you reply.

Leslie

Please make it clarify that you can easily get a replacement part of which you have been chosen. I had recently lost screw part of mine.

post #18 of 19

I have the same type and I've lost the screw on bottom that minces the garlic as it is forced down by the screw type plunger.   Broke my heart because I also use it to crush celery juice into my bloody Mary's, test it out.   I have found the replacement,  it is called "TURN-IT GARLIC PRESS",  Search the internet for them, prices ranged from $15.98 to 19.98!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Happy Garlicking!!!!!!!!!!!

It's called a "TURN-IT GARLIC PRESS",  internet search shows multiple suppliers.
