I once was the fool who bought a cheap garlic press from Walmart. It required a lot of pressure to press the garlic. So much pressure, that a handle broke off while I was trying to press some garlic.
You don’t have to spend a lot for a good garlic press. Also, if you have arthritis in your hands, it is important that it comes with a garlic peeler. You could always buy peeled garlic at the grocery, however, that cost can be prohibitive. With the peeler, you simply put the garlic into the tube and roll it on the counter under your palms.
If you’re in Canada, this is the exact garlic press that I purchased.
Price is in Canadian dollars. The link will take you to the Amazon Store of your country.
