As I have mentioned before in my post 5 Must Get Kitchen Gadgets, I am a big fan of gadgets. They may things so much easier. So receiving a garlic press and a julienne peeler was a great opportunity for me.
I love cooking with garlic. I use it all the time, crushed especially, to give my oil some flavor before I add things to it. Without a garlic press I either have to but a bottle of already crushed garlic in some oil that is full or preserves or try to crush it myself. Most times my "self-crush" turns into some pieces getting burnt after I slice it up and leaving a taste that I do not want in my food. Having a press is a great addition
Bru Joy's press is ergonomic making it especially easy for people like me (with a soft grip) to press garlic quickly and easily. All you have to do is pop in a fresh garlic clove into the chamber and press and you have minced garlic. No hassle. It came in extremely handy when I made my Rasta Pasta last week.
What I especially love is the addition of the brush that assists in ensuring that you get all the pressed garlic into your pot. Cleaning is very easy also. The mince head on the press flips open making it very easy to remove any left over skin (yes you can press with the skin on) in the chamber. It is also dishwasher safe.
The peeler is also user friendly. It is double sided (regular peeler and julienne peeler). It is a good weighted product so peeling came easily. Hold whatever vegetable and press and pull. This helped me a lot in making my Hawaiian Fried Rice (recipe coming soon)
The peeler is made of top quality stainless steel. And with it's sharp blades not much effort is required to produce the julienned slices. I went through a carrot in no time
Again another high quality device backed by a satisfaction guaranteed policy.
You can buy both of these products on Amazon.
Bru Joy's Garlic Press can be Bought here on Amazon and their Julienne Peeler can be Bought here on Amazon.
Have you fallen into this julienne craze and all the other types of zoodles? Or are you more of a garlic lover or garlic over lover like me??
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
