This is a handy little tool for quick and easy mincing of garlic. Only drawback is that it can sometimes be a bit tedious trying to fish all the little pieces of garlic out afterwards–lots of nooks and crannies for the garlic pieces to hide. Otherwise, it works really well, and the blade assembly comes out for easy cleaning. I wash mine in the top rack of the dishwasher with no trouble. I now use it about four times as often as my garlic press–maybe 4-5 times per week.
I LOVE this little guy. Easy to use, so much better than dicing garlic. Easy to clean, the top opens, the blades come out and I can just wash it. I usually handwash, because I don’t have a dishwasher. But the time it saves me from chopping garlic all the time is incredible. I would recommend this one or the bigger one, although I just do one clove at a time when I use the little one. So I prefer this size, if I was using one clove and the big one, It may be hard to get all the pieces out. But with several cloves its not a problem if a few pieces get lost.
We got this garlic zoom as a gift and use it all the time!! It makes mincing garlic so much easier then trying to use a knife and do it by hand. Clean up afterwards is a breeze!
I bought this to replace the same product from 4 years ago. (I lost the blades in the disposal!) This is much improved!! Better gearing makes it easier to use. It’s also easier to clean–there are fewer hidden pockets in the plastic that can trap water.
I bought this as a stocking stuffer for my boyfriend mostly because I hate chopping garlic. This thing is so handy. We use it at least once a week, and it’s held up to our abuse. I use it for things like fresh ginger, too.
This is the third one I have owned! I love this thing! I am Italian, so garlic is a staple for our family. We pretty much use it every meal. This is the most amazing product for mincing and dicing garlic! I would never be able to cook without it!
I have tried so many garlic tools and this is my favorite. Most other tools crush the garlic, this actually chops it. I usually prefer using chopped garlic vs. crushed when cooking so it saves me quite a bit of time. I learned quickly not to overload it, 5 cloves seems about right, and that it is actually easier to roll it on the palm of your hand rather than the counter. It seems to grip better. Happy cooking!
This thing works great! I’ve used it a couple of times already and you can keep rolling it to get to the desired fine chops of garlic. And the best part is that there’s no sticky mess. Getting the garlic out is a little bit of a challenge, but that pales in comparison to chopping by hand. For those contemplating which size to buy, get the XL. Whether you have a small or larger amount to handle, the XL will take care of it.
So many kitchen gadgets don’t perform as needed but this one does. If you want a quick mincer for your garlic this gizmo works great. It comes apart for an easy rinse. Garlic presses haven’t worked for me but this one does. In fact after wearing out my other one this is a replacement!
