I attended a Pampered Chef party recently and decided the garlic press was a MUST!
Check out the little removable cleaning tool above...clever to say the least.
And there is no need to peel the garlic clove, just place it in the little "basket" and squeeze the handles together...you don't need to be a body builder to use this!
One end of the cleaning tool is meant to scrape the minced garlic off the edge and the "pronged" end fits nicely into the basket and any garlic bits left just get pressed out!
The Pampered Chef consultant was Dorene Stevens and she demonstrated many tools and kitchen necessities!
