Zyliss Garlic Press Reviews
Product Type: Zyliss Kitchenware
Newest Review: ... pleased to say that the first thing I noticed about this press was the convenient packaging. It cam attached to a stiff board with one wire attachment, none of that annoying, impossible to open blown plastic packaging here. Much better for both my temper and the environment. The press I have is the Susi 2 model. It is made of metal with a pale grey, matte appearance. I was immediately impressed by how robust it felt and it also looked smart. Upon opening the handles the top handle flipped completely out of the way to reveal a good sized hopper into which to put the cloves. I usually put a couple of generously sized cloves in without ... more

I like to use garlic in my cooking but my husband hates finding chunks of the stuff in his food so I always have to use a good garlic press so that he doesn't start complaining. A piece of my last press eventually went missing so I had to find a replacement. I came across the Zyliss press in a local supermarket. I didn't notice the price when I popped it in my trolley but it was only later when looking at my receipt that I realised that it cost £15. At that price I think it should be able to cook dinner by itself really! I have now seen it on Amazon for £12.49 but I do not think this is the "2" model as it doesn't have the blue cleaning gadget in ... Read the complete review

So on Xmas day one of my presents was a garlic press. No idea why - no particular fondness for garlic, no significant fear of vampires and never a complaint about the bash and chop method I had been using previously - no reason to get it for me but I'm really glad someone did. The garlic press is made of gray metal with no other material present. The handles are comfortably curved but there are no significant grip areas. It consists of the bottom handle ending in a square metal bowl with holes in; the top handle has a hinged "masher" with small blunt prongs corresponding to the holes attached to it. Easy enough and it works like any other garlic ... Read the complete review

It doesn't matter which garlic press you get, but I sincerely believe that this should be the first kitchen utensil you buy. I have a Zyliss SUSI garlic press (www.zyliss.com), which I purchased in 1975 in a store in Chicago! With all my moves and relocating, I've never lost this item, and I use it ALL the time. This product and company are still both going strong, and I've seen it used by many chefs on cooking shows all over the world (including your own "The Naked Chef" and other UK shows). I've seen this same press in almost every kitchen store in the UK that I've visited. I guess there's no stopping a good thing. My garlic press is a ... Read the complete review

I have been through 6 garlic presses in the past and they had either begun to rust over or have broken. I saw this item on BBC Food and Drink, it was their favourite garlic press. The thing that appealed about this was that I wouldn't have to peel the garlic clove before putting it into the press, also there is a little tool with spikes on which sits in the handle and is used to clear out all the residue left inside the press. In the past, washing the residue out of the garlic press was always a job I hated. Fantastic, I thought, if Anthony Worral Thompson says it's good then I'll give it a go so I ordered one. It was a little pricey, but I was ... Read the complete review

I've had my share of garlic presses and they were just that - garlic presses - not particularly exciting. This, however, is the creme de la creme of garlic presses. It's nice and chunkily sleek, and comes with a little bit to push any bits out of the holes that actually resides in the garlic press handle which is handy (I normally throw things like that in a drawer and forget about them or lose them). But the best thing about it is it's performance. You don't need to peel the garlic clove, you just wang it in and press. It squirts out into almost a puree all of a sudden (a bit like squeezing a spot - sorry!). Then most of the skin and ... Read the complete review
