Does It Work: Garlic PRO

(KPLC) – Just roll to peel and twist to dice.  That's all you'll need to do in order to get fresh diced garlic with the Garlic PRO, if it works.

The Garlic Pro is a no touch garlic dicer, designed to make dicing garlic easier while keeping you hands away from the garlic smell.

The construction of the device is pretty simple.  The base is a clear cup with 10 stainless steel, double-edged blades.  The top has 10 blades as well, which are offset from the base blades.  The package comes with an E-Z Peeler designed to shed the skin from the garlic.

Users are directed to place the cloves inside of the tube, and then with a twist of light pressure, make a back-and-forth motion to shed the skin from the garlic cloves. Users say the more they twisted the cloves in the Garlic PRO in a clockwise and counter-clockwise motion, it diced the garlic into finer pieces.

With the top off and a few taps, most of the diced garlic dumped out on the table.  The rest of the cloves were finished with similar results.

It was easy to use, but how easy is the cleanup?  It's dishwasher safe, but if you don't have a dishwasher, the instructions call for just a rinse.  With only a rinse, the leftover garlic frees from the base and top of the unit.

With a whole head of garlic peeled and diced, plus the fast cleanup, it looks like the Garlic PRO cuts away to a "yes" for this week's "Does it Work?" test.

The Garlic PRO can be purchased online for $9.99 plus shipping and tax.
