Works well....but problems over time.
on 17 September 2015
I have actually bought 2 of these, as I was sure the problem must have been me misusing it somehow. It works very well and does indeed crush unpeeled cloves very efficiently, however over time the teeth on the cleaning tool start to bend thus making it hard, to eventually impossible to use as they all need to be aligned in order to push through the corresponding holes on the Zyliss. Both times they ended up being thrown away. Secondly after many months you also notice that the coating whatever it is, some reviewers have suggested it is aluminium....... Starts to come away, through use/cleaning. This looked really bad and I am unsure whether the coating ended up in food or down the sink. Usually I purchase an item based on the opinions of other reviewers, and am very satisfied, however after having purchased this item twice and having the same problems occur over months of use, I thought I should leave a review. I have since purchased the Oxo good grips new garlic press.
