Garlic Press Reviews: My Favorite Garlic Pressers
I cannot imagine my life in the kitchen without this amazing kitchen utensil: the garlic press. Over the years, I tested quite a few different models (mine and others!) and came to the conclusion that they are not made equal. So here are some of my garlic press reviews. I'll highlight some of my favorite garlic press as well as some model you should avoid.
Reason why I love my garlic press - Keep reading for the garlic press reviews
- No stinky fingers! No garlic juice, no smelly fingers.
- They work fast
- It's an inexpensive kitchen utensil
Why do I need one, I don't even use garlic - Ok, fair enough. But not loving garlic is not a good excuse not to own a press. Here's why:
- A garlic press looks cool.
- Having lots of kitchen utensils make you look like a great chef!
- It may incite you to try garlic
- It is the best kitchen utensil to fight vampires with. Garlic cloves are great, but freshly pressed cloves are even better.

Garlic press to avoid - Bad garlic press reviews
It's hard to really go bad with a press, but you should stay clear from these unless you want to trow away your money:
- Designer's garlic press at 100$ (or around) a pop. Come on, it's a press not a gold ring. You want something that press garlic, not something that looks cute. You can have a great presser for under 20$, use the rest for charity.
- Plastic garlic press. It's plastic, it won't last, it will break sooner or later (probably real fast). Plus plastic is bad for you and the environment. Avoid any garlic press with plastic handles as well.
- Any electric gizmos, you don't need them. Pressing garlic is real fast with a good solid press. You will waste time plugging, unplugging, washing and putting away the gizmo.
- Cheap "dollar store" ones. You don't know how or where they are made. There is a good reason why they are cheap. They won't last.
- Enameled garlic press. Same as above, unless you buy a quality one. I had twice enameled garlic press and both time the enamel cracked and chiped off
