Sometimes being savvy is sexy. Spending all of your time and energy in the kitchen to prepare that date night dinner can suck all the fun out of your evening. So I’m into any gadget that can create efficiencies. Even when it is something as simple as a garlic peeler.
How do you peel garlic?
Yes, every cook has their method of peeling garlic. And at a glance my kitchen gadget recommendation may not seem like it’s more effective than peeling garlic by hand but…you should try this silicone garlic peeler before you knock it.
Traditional methods of peeling garlic include crushing with the side of a knife, smashing with another tool or palm of the hand; some choose to cut off the ends and the peel their garlic by hand. There are may ways to peel a garlic clove but if you use more than two cloves per day – and why shouldn’t you, considering garlic is a potent aphrodisiac? – you will see the glory in this garlic skin remover.
Personally, I use garlic in most recipes I cook. And frequently one clove is not enough. Crushing with the side of knife is fine but it’s still a two part process: crush and peel.
Why I recommend a garlic roller
The beautiful thing about this tool, which goes by the name The Ultimate Garlic Peeler, is it removes the skin completely while you roll it under your hand. The skin of the garlic clove sticks to the inside of the rubber and the clove comes out totally NAKED!! No digital removal necessary at all. I can, literally, clean three or four cloves in a few seconds with this simple silicone kitchen tool.
It’s possible that having this in my arsenal will increase my use of garlic. It definitely makes the idea of purchasing already-peeled garlic far less necessary- Buy fresh. It’s always tastier. It’s so easy (and inexpensive), don’t be stubborn…do it. Now that I’ve discovered the best garlic peeler, I’m never going back to peeling by hand.
