The Basics: Garlic Press


Cooking Essentials 

The Technique 

Garlic Press 

A garlic press is a simple tool that every kitchen needs. Unlike mincing cloves with a chef knife, a garlic press pushes them through a number of tiny holes that not only creates small flecks of the pungent aromatic but it releases essential flavor. The tool was originally designed so as to place an unpeeled clove into the chamber however many use peeled cloves too for various reasons. If the latter is practiced, after a number of garlic clove have been pressed, simply remove the pieces that remain behind, place them on a cutting board & run a chef knife through them. A garlic press is ideal when a small amount of the aromatic is needed in recipes as opposed to using a food processor to pulverized a lot at one time. Learn how to use a garlic press, then add the minced cloves to recipes such as Lasagna Bolognese, Spicy Baked Ziti, Pan-Seared Rosemary-Garlic Rib-Eye Steak & Lemon-Garlic Hummus.

How To Use A Garlic Press

Garlic press tools are available in many styles. They make prep work quick in the kitchen yet also offer a well distributed taste to recipes. Many are designed with ergonomic attributes & non-slip handles to make using it easy. The built in cleaner on a number of models allows you to pop it over the grid once done to release anything that sticks.

I prefer to use peeled garlic in a press. First, peel the number of cloves you wish to press. Open the handles of the garlic press & drop a clove in the chamber. Next, push the handles together over a cutting board to extrude the garlic through the grid. Using a paring knife, swipe it between the garlic & the grid to release it onto the cutting board. In order to remove any of the clove that remains in the chamber, pop the built in cleaner over the grid. Repeat the process until all of the cloves have been prepped.
