I like using fresh ingredients when cooking. When it comes to garlic, I whole heartily will chose it in it’s raw format. In this format, it provides more vitamins, minerals, and amino acids compared to the powdered format. That means that grabbing a bulb of garlic next time you go shopping is the most healthy choice!
In order to fully enjoy raw garlic, a press and peeler is a must have. But where, does one start in finding one that will do a great job? I certainly advise the Garlic Press and Peeler set by Alpha Grillers. This set not only gets the job done but it does so with a little bit of style. I’m always a fan when a few extra touches here and there are taken to make a product more appealing to receive as well as give to someone you know.
The box this set comes in is durable. The inner bottom part of the box features a black satin type cushion for the press to sit upon inside. It appears very fancy and I’ll admit surprising though in a good way! One could chose to store the press and peeler within the box. I for one plan on hanging the press up on a hook and storing the peeler in one of my kitchen drawers. Space wise for me, storing in it’s box isn’t a practical choice.
The Garlic press is quite heavy duty being made from 18/8 stainless steel. It’s got a bit of weight to it. I with a smaller than average hand size had zero issue wielding it to do its job. I didn’t feel as if it would break under pressure. You have the option to press peeled or unpeeled garlic as well as ginger. That’s right, it can do either and quite well for that matter.
The silicone garlic peeler is something I wish I had discovered years ago! I simply pop a clove inside and apply a minimal amount of pressure while rolling. That’s it. Out comes a perfectly peeled clove every single time and the skin stays within till you get rid of it. No more hassle of peeling garlic by hand nor of smelling like garlic all day long!
Both the press and peeler are dishwasher safe and just as easy to clean by hand. They appear to be holding up nicely with daily use! I’ve no fear currently of either wearing out or breaking. I’m very happy with my set and highly recommend it if you are in the market for a garlic or ginger press!
If one doesn’t love this set, the company will issue a full refund. They offer every customer a lifetime guarantee so in purchasing your choice is completely risk free. If that’s not standing by your product completely, I don’t know what is!
