My New Toy: The Joseph Joseph Garlic Crusher

Food - New Garlic Press

I have been systematically eliminating unhealthy materials from my kitchen over the past several years.  Those would be:  plastics and aluminum.  I realized, though, I’m still using my old Pampered Chef garlic press which is some kind of plastic-coated aluminum.  I saw an ad in a magazine for a stainless steel version so I did a search and I found quite few from which to choose.

My Joseph Joseph Rocker Garlic Crusher arrived recently and I am amazed at how it has greatly improved dealing with garlic.  First, it’s an elegantly shaped heavy piece of stainless steel.  It makes such short work of crushing garlic it isn’t even funny.  I love when a company puts some thought into a design that actually works well.

There is something about fresh garlic you should know:  let it rest while you do a few other things.  Crush, which breaks cell walls and begins chemical processes in the cloves, rest for about 10 minutes to let them interact and become even more healthfully powerful, then use.  So, I crushed about 5 cloves here, let it sit on the crusher while I threw my salad together, then scraped it into my marinara sauce and rinsed off the tool.  Beautiful!
