Best Garlic Press?

JugglerDave | Jun 8, 2002 03:47 PM

I've been looking for a replacement garlic press for the one which has served me ably for almost 5 years. The one I just picked up at Fante's in south Philly, a place whose recommendations I usually trust, has been useless. It's a "Pedrini" from Italy and it has at best produced some garlic juice, but not pressed garlic.

I've looked at:

Zyliss
Oxo GoodGrips
a couple of German models (one with interchangeable press screens)

.and maybe 1 or 2 others.

My only true requirements are that it have an attachment for cleaning (with the 'fingers' that go through the
press holes), and that the garlic not mush around the press due to too much clearance on the sides.

Any real recommendations for the gruly great garlic press?

thanx,
