Giveaway: Garlic Press & Peeler

10/1/14


Is there anything worse than your fingers smelling like garlic?  Listen, I LOVE the stuff and overuse it in almost every recipe, and the scent of it cooking on the stove is glorious... but on your fingers for sometimes days afterwards?  No.  However, I've never had great experiences with garlic presses, therefore I usually prefer to chop the stuff myself.  That was the case until recently, when the people at Alpha Grillers (a company that manufactures high-quality kitchen tools available at Amazon) sent me a press and peeler set to review.  First of all, I had never used a peeler before and this one was refreshingly easy.  Just stick the clove into the tube and firmly roll it around with the palm of your hand and voila!  The peel falls off.  No smelly fingers yet.  Now onto the press, which you can tell is high-quality by the feel of it in your hand.  I've encountered so many presses that sort of fall apart when you open them.  Not this one, and look at how much fresh, juicy garlic you're left with... 


The only thing left inside the press is a very thin layer of peel.  I will never try another method again!

On to the the best news: Alpha Grillers is going to give away THREE sets to YOU fine people!  Just comment below to be eligible to win, and make sure to "like" AG on Facebook.  You want to win this giveaway, that is no joke, WIN WIN WIN!!  Good luck and thank you Alpha Grillers!

Fellow EHS alum ('06) here. Love your blog and your twitter humor. Would also love a garlic press! I think it's about time for me to evolve past using a few shakes from a 99 cent container of garlic powder when a recipe calls for it fresh...

Sarah Wolfe said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who suffers from stinky (yet delicious) fingers after using garlic!

I think its garlics way of self-preservation because I always want to use more garlic after I've used garlic #trickytricky!

Hot off the presses -- GAHLIC!

Carri Ann said...

I will admit my shame....I buy minced garlic in a jar at Costco just to avoid what you talked about - smelly hands! This would take me and my garlic use out of the shadows! Ha!

WendyL said...

A garlic press is a great way to not scream when you scrub your fingers with lemon to rid of the garlic smell and you realize you have a cut or hangnail- ouch!

Anonymous said...

My last garlic press broke and haven't yet replaced it.

I definitely could use it since I also use lots of garlic.

I love using a garlic press! I'm one of those people who that garlic smell lingers for at least a day, no matter how many times I wash my hands and what with and I've tried salt, a stainless steel bar, all of that stuff! My press broke recently, so I'm in the market for a new one - good timing for this giveaway! ;)

Shelley Snyman said...

Amy Ohlson said...

I was so excited when i found a garlic press at a yard sale because i could never get myself to spend so much money on something i could do myself. My excotement quickly faded when i went to use it for the first time and the pressure to squeeze the garlic broke the cheap plastic it was made of ��

Deb Carrara said...

This would make cooking with garlic a breeze. Would love this ! Thanks for your blog - I enjoy it so much and have been inspired to make many things from it! Including those monster cookies from tonight - oh yes, this weekend monster cookies will appear in my house. I only have 1 (14 month old) so I will hopefully manage to get this done if you do1

Ann K said...

I usually use pre-crushed garlic from Trader Joes for the convenience. However, I know the real thing (straight from the clove) is better and would love to win this so I could make it easier to use fresh garlic on a regular basis.
