The OXO Good Grips Garlic Press is the only garlic crusher you’ll ever need. The deep, large-capacity chamber can easily crush up to 3 medium garlic cloves in one go. Then fold the press the other way, and the built-in cleaner pushes out any leftover garlic.
Firstly I love the oxo good grips brand. Initially, I was impressed with the weight and feel in my hand. I looked at my old press and thought you’re destined for the charity to shop my friend! Then I noticed upon opening up the press that there was a ‘wobble’ around the hinge. I thought this could end up in two pieces after many presses.
This press didn’t crush my garlic completely. I took out what garlic was left inside and popped it into my old press and hey presto more came out. Upon inspection, I could see there was a gap between the two plates, meaning not all the garlic was getting crushed.
Why were the plates not butting up against each other? The answer is the handle. Look at the curve on the handle and this was what was stopping the contact. Before you throw your old garlic press away. Put a Clove of garlic in both (similar size pieces for comparison) and see if there is any difference.
Overall, I felt let down by the OXO Good Grips Garlic Press.
