All garlic presses are certainly not created equal and with the Kuhn Rikon Epicurean Garlic Press, itís not the sleek design that makes the difference (though it does get a few extra points for looking so cool). Iím betting youíve used a garlic press before and youíre used to crushed garlic, right? The Kuhn Rikon Epicurean press actually minces your garlic perfectly and uniformly, which is probably why Cooks Illustrated consistently rates as it their favorite. The specially designed gear mechanism squeezes with 60% less effort than other presses and the entire thing flips open, so it cleans up in just seconds. Made of sturdy brushed stainless steel.
