    Default My newest kitchen gadget.

    How did I live without this?

    http://tinyurl.com/22ra4sy

    Mine is yellow and I got it for a song ($1) in a kit with a ceramic
    grating dish and little brush. I don't use the dish or the brush, but
    boy, oh boy, do I love the garlic peeler!

    My cousin in Israel had one and I just had to get one of my own.
    Everyone should own one.

    You put an unpeeled clove of garlic inside the tube then roll it on the
    counter with the palm of your hand. The peel comes completely off and
    the clove of garlic stays whole.

    I like to grate a whole clove on the micro plane and this gizmo is
    wonderful for keeping the cloves whole in the peeling process.

    They are a bear to clean, though. 8

    Make me wonder why there's no such thing as "garlic glue."

    I used part of a bicycle inner-tube when these were first spotted
    here in 1995. I used the inner tube for a couple years then I
    reverted back to the knife. I have never had use for whole garlic
    cloves, otherwise I'd make another tube.

    Rolling off the peel would work! Thanks for posting the item. At first I
    thought you pound down to get the skin off, but both sides are pointy. I
    might have to get one! The way I do garlic I always have the odor on my
    fingernails for hours.

    thanks!

    Use the grater! It's good for garlic, ginger and apples. Mine was intended
    for graed apple, but it works precisely like a garlic grater. Italians feed
    little tots grated apple quite often.

    Hmmm, I don't seem to have a problem peeling garlic. Don't need a gadget
    for it. But hey, enjoy!

    They have been around for *ages*, I'm suprised you haven't seen one before
    now.

    Here's a thread from 1996.... they do seem to have come down in price
    though :-)

    Yeah, it is SO sticky. I just do the squash-with-the-flat-side-of-a-
    knife thing, but then it can't be sliced.

    Janet,

    Keep that ceramic grater in mind when you want to grate some ginger,
    although it turns it more into a pulp.

    Best,

    No it's not. I just rinse it under the faucet. If there is any peel
    stuck, I use a little dish soap on my finger, spread it around and rinse.

    I'll have to try it. There is a chip on the rim of the grater, but it
    should not be a problem. That's why the whole set as $1

    I have never seen one before. I'll stick with the Chinese/Thai celever
    and whapping. The thought of giving even a buck to Marty Stewart is
    unsettling. Oh boy! She raises her own chickens (or, her hired farmer
    does.)

    My goodness, janet, I've had this for years.

    It's OK, but not a mess to clean. I put mine on a spike on the upper
    level of my dishwasher, and its all clean.

    No need for *special* handling. It's a pretty good tool.

    But: I find myself using it less and less, in favor of traditional
    methods.
