Kitchen Gadgets: The Garlic Chop
The Garlic Chop is a kitchen gadget designed to make dicing garlic easier and hands-free, for those who wish to avoid the odor on their fingers.
I grow a lot of garlic, and yes, sometimes I am lazy about using it in my cooking, as I don't want to peal it and clean the garlic press. The Garlic Chop does not change the need for peeling garlic, but it is easier to clean than a press.
The Garlic Chop is powered by your hands and with a simple side-to-side twist, perfectly chopped garlic is revealed. A conveniently placed button on the rear of the design escalates a patented riser plate that pushes the garlic upward, which can be removed with a knife or spatula.
It has the makeup of handheld food processors and quickly dices up to four peeled cloves at a time. Small ribs on the side of The Garlic Chop allows for an easy grip and the interior plastic teeth are sharp enough to create a chopped, pulp-like consistency ideal for fish, meats and potatoes.
It is dishwasher safe.
The Garlic Chop does not cut up the garlic as fine as a press, which is good if you want bigger chunks. It also only accepts pretty small cloves. The first clove I tried it with was way too big, and I had to cut it up to make it fit in the Garlic Chop. I like to grow bigger cloves, as they are easier to use in cooking. Often, they need to be cut up for the press too.
The Garlic Chop would not work with elephant garlic unless you cut it up ahead of time.
There is nothing eco-friendly or natural about this product. It is made in China.
