Kuhn-Rikon Stainless Steel Epicurean Garlic Press Review

we’ve got a crush on garlic in America’s
Test Kitchen we use it more than a
quarter of our recipes and in those we
suggest using our garlic press we tried
nearly two dozen presses to find the
best one for the kitchen we wanted one
that was easy and simple to use and
didn’t require a ton of strength to
press we wanted something that gave the
maximum yield of garlic and didn’t leave
a lot of waste and we also wanted
something that was very easy to clean it
didn’t leave you standing there picking
out the little pieces of garlic most of
all we wanted a press they could handle
an unpeel clove because that’s a really
big time-saver
then we wondered does your choice of
garlic press really matter in your
cooking we did a test and got a very
surprising answer we made different
batches of pasta with garlic and olive
oil and the only difference was the
press used to prepare the garlic we
noticed a very wide range of flavors
from very bland to very robust that’s
because the pieces of garlic the size of
the pieces of garlic really matter if
you have really large pieces they tend
to drop to the bottom of the bowl
leaving most of the dish very gland if
they’re irregular sizes the little tiny
pieces actually Brown too much in the
oil before the bigger pieces are tender
so you get some very bitter taste in
there if the pieces are all fine and of
uniform size you get a nice consistent
distribution of the garlic flavor
throughout the dish we were happy with
our previous favourite garlic presses
the Zyliss suzi – and jumbo till we
notice that the ones around the Test
Kitchen we’re peeling the coating was
coming off particularly in and around
the hopper and sometimes we get a little
bit of black liquid along with our
garlic we sent the presses to a lab and
spoke to scientists and we learned that
it was just oxidation from the exposed
metal while this isn’t harmful we really
thought it was time to choose a new
favorite press so we pressed peeled and
unpeeled cloves multiple cloves even
ginger we used testers with very strong
large hands and testers with smaller
less strong hands to get a sense of how
they would perform we can ran them all
through the dishwasher ten times to see
how well they’d hold up your won model
by EMCO fell apart after just six cycles
so which press did we like the best was
the kuhn rikon epicurean it’s made of
solid stainless steel nothing to peel
off it’s very comfortable in your hand
and gives us that fine uniform
consistency of garlic that we like it’s
also very heavily constructed feels very
solidly built and has this nice feature
where the hopper lifts out for easy
cleaning it’s only disadvantage is that
it’s 3495 which you may not want to
spend on a garlic press
we found the true no garlic press which
is a very basic design with the generous
hopper and gives you good results is
also a good choice and at just 1199 it’s
our best buy

Garlic Press Buyers’ Guide

How to crush garlic?

Sometimes the process of crushing garlic becomes so problematic for some people that they might prefer to avoid the recipes that would call for one. However, it can come with ease for someone who tries at least one time and gets familiar with an easy process that requires not more than one or two minutes. Just follow these simple ways to be able to prepare the best dishes since most of them do call for the taste of garlic. Here is how it goes. First, you should put the garlic on a cutting board without removing the skin, and then you would need to choose the knife with the widest blade to push on the garlic clove and squeeze it. At this point, pressing hard with the palm will make it a lot easier to remove the skin. Then take the sharpest knife to cut it into smaller pieces. Finally, to achieve the desired condition of a consistent mass, you need to push once again with the blade, smashing the garlic at until you achieve a consistent mass. This should be repeated with all the bigger pieces of garlic that resulted after chopping the first time.

How to mince garlic cloves?

The first thing to do is to cut the top root of the clove and push it against the board with the wide side of a knife. In that process, it loosens its skin. The easiest way of mincing garlic is to follow the technique that is implemented by the two hands moving up and down on the cutting board repeatedly. Keep the blade in one hand and with the other hand control the movement of the blade from the top. You should move it quickly back and forth over the pile of garlic to mince it. In order to get a smoother paste, it is recommended to add salt to the chopped garlic, since it stimulates the breakdown and decomposition of chopped garlic. You should also change the position of the blade occasionally, by pushing it down with the side of the blade and then continuing to move it up and down, and then back and forth.

What does a garlic press do?

Pressed garlic is considered to give a stronger flavor to a dish rather than the minced garlic. It has a different flavor since when you press garlic properly with the tool, more of its stronger compounds are being released that otherwise would just go wasted. According to some chefs, the pressed garlic allows one to get rid of the bitter and strong stem, letting us feel a more delicate and light flavor. It is also widely accepted that garlic press breaks down cloves more evenly when compared to the process of chopping by a knife. Plus, by breaking down cloves evenly, garlic press ensures that the flavor is distributed better through the dish.

How to use a garlic press?

Never peel the garlic if you are going to use a garlic press. You should put the garlic clove in the device (remember it’s highly recommended not to peel it as you put it in the press) and squeeze the tool with the two hands. Fresh and fragrant garlic will be minced for you in just a few seconds. While minced garlic will come out of the grid of holes, the rapper will basically remain in the crusher box. As you get the golden and fresh garlic out of the press, you should also get rid of the emptied clove and ensure the proper cleaning process of the garlic press. As easy as that! And by just leaving the peel on it, you are able to preserve the fresh flavor of garlic.
