The stylish design of this garlic crusher makes this messy task much easier. By using downward pressure and a ‘rocking’ motion it crushes garlic cloves quickly and efficiently, forcing the pieces up through the mesh of holes. Once crushed, the garlic pieces are held in the shallow bowl, allowing them to be spooned or scraped easily into a pan. Additional cloves can also be crushed at this stage before emptying. When finished, the unit can be rinsed under running water and used to gently rub the hands and fingers to reduce any garlic odour. The crusher is dishwasher safe. It measures 18.5cm/7.3cm long by 4cm/1.6in wide by 3cm/1.2in deep.
