The garlic press also called garlic crusher garlic chopper is kitchen tool to crush garlic cloves efficiently by forcing them through a grid of small holes.
It is a convenient alternative to mincing garlic with a knife, especially because a clove of garlic can be passed through a sturdy press without even removing its peel.
The peel remains in the press while the garlic is extruded out.
Pressed garlic has a lighter, more delicate flavour than minced garlic because it excludes the bitter centre stem.
Garlic press can break down cloves more finely and evenly than an average cook using a knife, which means better distribution of garlic flavour throughout any given dish.
Additional uses for a garlic press, such as mashing other small items (including olives, capers, anchovies, and canned chipotles) or pressing out small quantities of onion or shallot juice.
