      My Mom bought this chopper thing for veggies - It's like a Guillotine for vegetables - but it chops em' into LOTS of little pieces.

      WHACK!!!

      ~done~

      I never get to use it though - it's just me and my big ol' kitchen knife.

      Gordon, Raw garlic cloves are a food staple are they not? I try not to eat them when I am going to be around a lot of people however. I find that this garlic grater is a bit easier on the fingers compared to the traditional hand grater.

      Gordon Hamilton 5 years ago from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom

      Susan, I use/eat garlic every single day in life - literally. I have even been known to munch whole cloves of raw garlic, I am so addicted to it. (That went down so well when I worked in a busy office environment! :) ) I grate garlic quite a lot, using the old, traditional hand grater and have never heard of this tool. Sounds perfect for me - thanks!

      tipoague,

      I found mine at a fair and just went to check to see if they are available in stores but could not find any. I am sure if you went to a garlic festival or upcoming large fair you may find one there. But Amazon does sell them for less than what I paid for mine.

      Facinating! This looks like a must in my kitchen. I love to cook and bake. Do they sell them in stores or do you need to order them online? Thanks for sharing!

      REALfoodie, I use garlic all the time too, and when I saw this grater I just had to have it.

      marellen, Yes this would make an excellent Christmas gift.

      Cardisa, I have always used a garlic press but after getting this grater I think I will be using it more than the press.

      ThoughtSandwiches, Thanks and I am sure your room mate will love this.

      Ruby, It would make a great addition to anyone's kitchen.

      barbergirl, Fresh garlic is so much better and I am sure once you start using fresh you will love it.

      dreams, I am in search of a garlic festival close to where I live as I too am a garlicholic :)

      RH, When I found this at the fair the other day I couldn't wait to get home and use it. The garlic comes out just like in the video. When you use with ginger, the smell is amazing :)

      I use a lot of everything you mentioned! Orange and lemon zest, ginger, garlic - and this sounds awesome! I use a garlic press but unless I use salt I can't get a good paste ( which is great as a spread on a hot slice of baguette bread) and the press makes my fingers sticky:(. Ginger also is tough to dice small (it's got that hairy like stuff I find hard to cut). Ok - sorry! But I want one of those (you know how much I love cooking and I'm easily excitable)! Lol

      I use a lot of garlic but I have never used fresh garlic... I always go for the stuff that is either in the can that stays refrigerated or the stuff in the spice aisle... however, I am always up for a new kitchen gadget. Maybe I will have to change it up a little just to have an excuse to get this! :)
