Easy Garlic... without the jar
on 26 August 2012
The Susi 3 garlic press makes garlic preparation a much less time consuming task and virtually eliminates any need to have jars of prepared garlic in the fridge.
I top and tail each clove of garlic but don't peel it and the press will easily accommodate three or more large cloves at each pass. The pressing process is easy (as long as your garlic is reasonably fresh) and the press itself straightforward to clean - I have owned a Susi 2 for a few years and successfully used the end of a spoon to lift residue from the hopper; the Susi 3 incorporates its own cleaner to make the task even easier (although the end of a spoon will probably still be faster).
Whilst hand washing is recommended it is dishwasher safe; my Susi 2 has been through the dishwasher countless times over the last three/four years and always comes out like new. The Susi 3 is made of the same matt metal so should similarly withstand the rigours of the dishwasher without any adverse effects.
I love gadgets and have tried many over the years that state they make certain tasks easier, although they don't always live up to their claims. The Susi 3 (as well as the earlier model 2) both make the task of garlic preparation much easier and without leaving you with a messy gadget that is difficult to clean afterwards.
