Best Overall Garlic Press

Why people love it
  • Simple cleanup
  • Easy to use
  • Best press ever invented; an overall great product

Wellll it's not exactly cheap for a garlic press – and it doesn’t hold more than 1 giant clove at a time. You should also be certain to rinse away the residue before placing in the dishwasher.


We know it’s difficult to justify spending $45 on a garlic press. But, if you’re looking for one that will outlast you – and do an amazing job every time – this is the one.

The basket is large enough to hold several small cloves or one giant clove. More importantly, there’s no reason to peel them first. Along with the easy-clean, flip-out basket, working with the ergonomic design is a breeze.

Best of all, the beveled holes finely cut garlic without bruising it – and the flavor that results is why we couldn’t consider another garlic press for the top spot. The same goes for a lot of testers, including the folks at Cook’s Illustrated.

What’s it made of? 18/10 Stainless steel.

Does it feature easy operation? The ergonomic design of this sturdy garlic press requires as much as 60% less effort to operate. It tucks into palms easily and the lever does all the work.

How do you clean out the garlic residue? The flip-out basket makes it super easy to rinse out the sticky residue.

Is it dishwasher safe? Yes, we can't tell you enough how easy this garlic press is to clean.

How much does it weigh? 11 ounces.

Any guarantees or warranties? This garlic press comes with a 2-year warranty.

Will it break the bank? Possibly. You’ll find it difficult to justify spending $45 on a garlic press – until you realize you’ll never need another one.
