Cooks Illustrated recommends this, so when I needed a new garlic press, it's what I bought. When it arrived, it was made mainly of plastic and looked very flimsy, and the first time I used it to mince some unpeeled garlic, it broke in my hand.
Turns out Kuhn Ricon makes two models. The one I bought, the Easy-Squeeze Garlic Press, retails for $20. CI's recommendation is for the Epicurean Garlic Press, which is made of metal and costs twice as much.
It's my fault for not paying enough close enough attention and buying the wrong model. Don't make the same mistake! But it's also Kuhn Ricon's fault for making such a flimsy tool in the first place.
