Zyliss Susi 3 Garlic Press

Best Garlic Press for Small Jobs (and Weaker Hands)

Why people love it
  • Works wonders
  • Easy to use (possibly one of the easiest there is in, in fact)
  • Comes with convenient cleaning tool

It’s not the best with unpeeled cloves. Also, it can go in the dishwasher, but it’s not recommended.


It’s difficult to say why we (and others) love this particular garlic press so much. There is more than one reason. But, we think it’s mainly because it’s so lightweight. That makes it easier for some to operate with one hand – and that can make a big difference for cooks that just don’t have the strength they used to have.

It does a fair job with a couple of cloves and with unpeeled cloves, though we wouldn’t recommend either for those with hand strength concerns. However, we’re kind of in love with the included tool that slots easily in the handle to help remove the bits of residue. There’s also the wonderful price to consider. And, there’s still a guarantee.

The biggest drawback is the dishwasher factor. You can put it in the dishwasher, but it’s perhaps not the best. Still, if you have muscular or strength issues, perhaps hand washing is a good trade-off.

What’s it made of? Anodized aluminum.

Does it feature easy operation? It’s easy to operate with the Swiss design and ergonomic handles. If hand strength is an issue, we recommend peeling the garlic first and not over-filling the chamber.

How do you clean out the garlic residue? The cleaning tool fits the holes of the press perfectly to make removing that sticky residue super easy.

Is it dishwasher safe? Um, sort of. It is dishwasher-safe, but the manufacturers recommend hand washing to keep it in good condition for longer.

How much does it weigh? 4 ounces.

Any guarantees or warranties? Sadly, there’s only a 5-year manufacturer guarantee.

Will it break the bank? Nope. It’s about $16.
