Press, Peel, Chop

I’ve always been skeptical of garlic devices: the peelers, the presses, the choppers. They seem hard to clean and are sort of like all the pointless products in CHOW’s story on 10 items you will never need. But this Garlic Twist actually works. No more chopping. It peels and minces garlic with minimal effort and cleans easily, and the plastic never smells bad. You can watch the musically enhanced video presentation that shows you what you’d understand in a minute if you were to hold this in your hands.
