I received this Bru Joy Garlic press in exchange for my unbiased honest opinion at a promotional cost. I am really glad I got this and found Bru Joy products. Every one of their products I have are of great workmanship and all of them I recommend. The garlic press works really easily and even cleans easily. Its simple to use, stick garlic in and press gently. Don’t need to be strong as it works really easy and out pops the garlic on the outer side. I did have to scrape the remaining garlic off with butter knife but thats no big deal it pressed 4 cloves in less than a minute. I am very satisfied and love my Bru Joy kitchen items!
