Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Forget those hard-to-clean garlic presses, razor-sharp graters and time-consuming chopping—introducing Garlic Card, a new invention from Sweden for grating Garlic both quickly and easily.

Garlic Card is a patterned card made of plastic, not unlike a credit card. The pattern is especially designed to grate garlic cloves. The result is a perfect purée that is easy to mix with other ingredients for the fresh taster of garlic in all types of dishes. After use the garlic Card is simply rinsed under running water--it is not suitable for the dishawasher.

Inventor Herman Rasmuson about the Garlic Card
There has been a great need for a garlic tool. The garlic press does its job, but is difficult to clean. A knife only works for chopping garlic. And a grater is difficult to clean and makes it all too easy to injure oneself. People find it unbelievable when I tell them about the various methods chefs use to make garlic purée: pounding garlic with a hammer in a plastic bag or between sheets of plastic wrap, or trying to mash garlic with the edge of a knife. Seeing professionals in this state made me realize that something had to be done!

The idea for the Garlic Card came to me in my home kitchen. As a cook and restaurateur, I'm always looking for new solutions. It may sound strange, but I made a desperate attempt to grate garlic using an ordinary credit card. To my surprise, it worked wonderfully and made an excellent garlic purée. To avoid leaving my credit card smelling like garlic, I washed it and was surprised at how easy it was to clean. An extra bonus! This fine garlic purée is exactly what one needs for giving food the perfect taste of fresh garlic - the aromas blend quickly and smoothly with no large pieces.

I bought the Garlic Card as an antidote to the main disadvantage of the traditional garlic crusher, ie that it is quite difficult to clean. I have to say I was very disappointed indeed. In short, it doesn't work very well at all.

The item arrived a few days ago and I tried it out for the first time last night. I did manage to puree about a third of the clove, but the process was so messy my hands still smell of garlic nearly 24 hours later. It is so hard to hold on to the diminishing clove that at one point it flew out of my hand and over to the other side of the kitchen.

I put the Garlic Card straight in the bin and will happily revert to using my old garlic crusher, content in the knowledge that cleaning it is much less hassle than trying to puree a clove of garlic on a small, ridged piece of plastic.

When I first saw this product, I was so impressed with the concept that I bought 3 so I could share the joy with my Mum & a friend. I had to eat my words and admit that I had bought them a useless present. The theory is fab, but in practice it is rubbish - you just seem to smear puree around the card, and it takes AGES to get a decent amount. Luckily, because they are cheap, I didn't feel too ripped off.

This is actually very messy to deal with - the puree-ing action does work but the card should be bigger so you don't end up with the sludge going off the edges! Clever idea, but I think a crusher infinitely more practical if you don't want garlic juice ground into your fingers!

Handy little device for smooth garlic. Smaller than expected but still does what is needed.
