Ok.. so this garlic press is pretty expensive - but it is truly worth every penny. I am always amazed at how much garlic I can get from just one clove with this press. Previous garlic presses have pretty much just squashed the garlic into a mush that is a pain to clean - this press, however, provides you with ample amounts of garlic and even has a brilliant 'nodule' section that you can push back through the holes which makes cleaning super-easy! It is quite heavy - but I feel that this just makes you feel like you're using a quality piece of equipment - so I actually like the weight of it! If you cook with garlic you won't be disappointed with this garlic press!
