Garlic Lovers Dream Tool Jun 16, 2000
By lolo No more smashing cloves w/the side of a knife or any of the other tricks your mother and/or Italian friends taught you to get those pesky skins off. These garlic peelers really work, leaving the cloves intact, the odor off your fingers and they are fun. You simply place a clove or two inside the tube, roll it around and like magic, the skins roll off. A logical, pragmatic tool that belongs in every kitchen.

the simplest tools are the best Apr 28, 2000 It's hard to imagine that a rubber tube can be such a valuable kitchen tool, but I use this garlic peeler almost every night. You just pop your clove in it and roll it for 30 seconds and all the skin comes off. I used to crack the clove with the back of a spoon and then peel, but it doesn't always take all the skin off like this rolling tool does. This tool is a major timesaver!

Unnecessary and low productivity. Aug 14, 2002
By Aaron Contorer It does the job of peeling garlic, though not always on the first try.
It gets dirty fast because garlic peels sort of stick to the inside. It's very easy to clean, but then you lose the time savings which it was supposed to deliver. If you want to peel more than a couple of cloves, it's a big nuisance.
And it's simply unnecessary. To peel garlic, put it down on the cutting board (or counter) and whack it with the flat side of any tool (I use whatever chef's knife or cleaver is sitting around, or even the bottom of a can). The peel will come right off.

simpilcity at its best Jan 06, 2002 I'v owned this for over a year and it is the best thing I have used to peel garlic. You can do 2 or 3 cloves at a time. Afer you roll the garlic the peels stick to the inside of the tube while the cloves fall out. Most of the time, if you are not too exuburant, the cloves will stay whole. whatever thats good for. My only minor dislike I have for it is after you've peeled several cloves, the garlic juices tend to make the inside a little slippery so it doesn't do as an expediant job at peeling. but a quick rinse usually solves that peeve of mine. I highly recommend this piece of kitchen gadgetry.
