Editorial comment:

We've loved garlic for a long time, but the preparation wasn't easy or pleasant. Now we have found this to be the perfect tool for preparing garlic, and want to share it with everyone. It's even built to last for many years. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

The Garlic Twist is:
  • Fun and easy to use
  • Handy to crush and peel garlic
  • Minces garlic to ideal texture
  • Neatly gathers garlic for use
  • No waste of garlic
  • Rinse once to clean

How to use:
  • For quick peeling of garlic, use the Garlic Twist to whack unpeeled cloves 2-3 times to loosen the skin. Grip the tip of the skin and slip it off in whole.
  • For easy mincing, keep the two halves of the Garlic Twist slightly apart while twisting it back-and-forth. This would allow the garlic to be shredded layer-by-layer. If done properly, the Garlic Twist would enable garlic to be minced with minimal effort.
  • For quick and neat gathering of the minced garlic, twist the top half to one direction until considerable resistance is felt, then back-twist it to the other direction until considerable resistance is again felt, then back-twist it again very slightly to push minced garlic to the center completely free of the mincing teeth before opening.
  • For best control, use a table knife or spoon to push the two chunks of neatly gathered minced garlic piles out for use starting from the center of the bowl.
  • The Garlic Twist loves garlic, so use a generous amount of garlic. Fill it up with peeled garlic then start mincing, you’ll be amazed.
