Zyliss didn't just invent the garlic press, they've spent 60 years turning it into a model of perfection. This may very well be the best garlic press money can buy!
To use, simply place your garlic into the hopper - skins and all - and squeeze. Ergonomic handles maximise your power while the unique plunger design maximises your yield. The pulp and the juice come out through the screen while all the unwanted bits get left behind.

Crushes garlic perfectly, solid and sturdy, and possibly most importantly with a tool like this - it is so easy to clean! Run it under water while the garlic is still moist and it's very easy to remove the waste, just don't leave it for the next day, dried crushed garlic is a pain! I haven't had any issues with the coating and I've had mine for about a year and a half.
The Zyliss has been an excellent press to date but over time, the metallic surface has deteriorated to such an extent, it now leaves black smudges on the crushed garlic. Does the alloy used in its construction contain lead or aluminium? I have not been able to find any information on its composition. Can anyone help?
Ok so I've owned this garlic press for some time now and the coating on it is flaking off so much so that it's beginning to colour the juice of the garlic when I press it out! So now I'm getting a nice proper metal one with no coating. Buyer Beware: it does the job initially but replace it with a better metal one before it starts to flake.
What metal is it made from? Hoping that it is not aluminuin. Please respond. Regards a happy customer.
Hi, the overall construction is robust and the mechanical action with this design allows for relatively easy crushing. HOWEVER, the silver finish coating has started to peel off in chunks potentially ending up in your food... it has never been used other then advised and has never been in a dishwasher
This garlic press is fantastic. No more sticky fingers trying to peel the cloves - presses it so fine it is amazing.
Love this Garlic Press, ease of use and gets all the garlic pressed, comes with handy plastic cleaner to get all the holes clean too
Had to comment as my own experience is so different to the previous reviewer. This is the best garlic crusher I've ever used. Ours is now 13 years old and looks new. Very easy to clean, very effective, simple to store and great to hold.
We were given this as a wedding present, and loved it. Used it every day, until today, when the face snapped off. Very sad...
We should have bought this ages ago as we use garlic in most of the things we cook. This garlic press is great - very well made and seems very strong. It is also very easy to clean and comes with a handy plastic thingy which gets all the little pieces of garlic out of the holes in the press. We have used it for both large and small cloves of garlic and it is great with both. Well worth buying.
