4.0 out of 5 stars Love it - Works a Dream, 6 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Jamie Oliver Garlic Slice and Press - Silver (Kitchen & Home)
I've been using this for a while now and I love it - contrary to some of the other reviews I have not found that this struggles at all with small cloves of garlic - it presses them just as well as the large ones. It has to be seen to be believed that all you are left with are a couple of papery skins after you cruch the clove - VERY impressive. and it is easy to clean, as soon as you finish using it, just run it under a tap to clear the holes and just pick the 'paper' from the pusher.

I have tested the slice function and that was very good, but in does not seem to remove all the skin when you do this and there was an unfortunate incident the other night too. I was using the slice function for the first time in a recipe rather than just a test, it was a small clove and all I can think is that the clove moved sideways whilst pressing and it unfortunatly damaged the 'pushing vanes' and caused them to bend and press out one of the cutters. I contacted Amazon immediatly and a replacement has been duly dispatched.

I have not been put of this product by the failure I suffered - I am an Engineer by trade and can easily recognise a freak circumstance when I see one. I will continue to use the press for Crushing Garlic, but If a recipe calls for slicing, I'll use my knife (I cut it thinner that way anyway).

Overall a very capable product that manages small to large cloves very well and is easily the best garlic press I have ever used. I only award this product 4 stars, not because of the failure I suffered, but because it does not remove the skin properly when slicing. It's still an impressive kitchen tool.
