Witnesses to my cooking know I press an inordinate amount of garlic.
I'm happy to announce Ikea has built a better mousetrap garlic press. For years and years and years I have sworn by Zyliss or Pampered Chef garlic presses. They were identical except for the fact that the Pampered Chef press held two cloves. No matter how careful you are with either of these two, the silver finish eventually wears off, exposing the aluminum core, leaving you with black stained garlic.
Introducing Ikea's new press: Vardefull.
It's an uncoated aluminum free, large capacity garlic press that works effectively, and the piece de resistance - a little door that opens flat making cleaning a breeze. No longer do you have to keep track of that little plastic cleaning tool included with the presses mentioned above. Could it get any better? Yes, the price. It's $5 cdn.
