Garlic is a key ingredient in most good recipes. But mincing garlic can become tedious when cooking large batches—or even if you just like a lot of garlic. For when the mincing gets tiresome, people look towards a garlic press. Small, handheld devices that gently push cloves of garlic through holes to create uniform pieces of garlic so you won’t have to worry about chomping on a large piece that you may have missed in your attempts at knife work, garlic presses seem pretty straightforward.

That’s where things get tricky; when you want the absolute best of something that seems foolproof, it can be hard to pick which tool you want to add to your kitchen drawer. Luckily, we did the work and found the best garlic presses that you can get for your hard-earned cheddar, so you can get to impressing your friends and family with great meals.

Editor's Note

The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.

Kuhn Rikon Epicurean Garlic Press

The Kuhn Rikon epicurean garlic press is a sturdy garlic press made of cast aluminum. Good for unpeeled cloves, this garlic press can accommodate multiple cloves at once without issue and is great when you need large quantities of garlic for cooking. Reviews mention that they like that this garlic press easily churns out uniform pieces, due in part to its nonstick coating.

While this garlic press is dishwasher safe, hand washing is recommended to maintain its condition. This is a heavy-duty garlic press with a higher price tag than others but if you go through a lot of garlic you’re bound to recoup the extra cost fairly quickly, and we see this as a staple item in a lot of kitchens.

Pros

  • Good for large quantities

  • Dishwasher safe

Cons

  • A little pricey

Hailing from San Leandro, California, Dreamfarm looks to think of innovative kitchen tools that add to the culinary experience and have won multiple design awards for their products. We love their garlic press, complete with a built-in scraper and peel ejector, as well as the cleaning tool that lives in its own spot in the garlic press. Made of aluminum, this garlic press might need some extra hand pressure to squeeze garlic through, but reviewers do mention that it has a “lovely heft” to it.

Opening 180 degrees for easy cleaning, there really is no downside to this garlic press, and like some others it also has the ability to accommodate multiple unpeeled cloves. If you’re looking for homegrown innovation and interesting designs, this would be a good pick. But if you want something more basic, it might be a little clunky due to the extra bells and whistles included.

Pros

  • Built-in cleaning tools

  • Self-scraping

Cons

  • Requires a good amount of pressure

  • A little pricey

Pampered Chef Garlic Press #2575

Known by older generations for their bevvy of kitchen items, The Pampered Chef makes a garlic press that people swear by, even 15 years after purchase. One reviewer said that she had to replace her old garlic press due to her kid trying to press a piece of wood through it and immediately thought to rebuy her tried-and-true press from The Pampered Chef.

While older versions are thought to be a little heftier than the garlic press currently offered, people like this classic garlic press because of the included cleaning tool and its extra large hopper, great for filling with garlic, ginger, or even horseradish. Made of aluminum with nonstick, silicone-based coating, this garlic press is said to be dishwasher safe by the manufacturer, but we might still handwash it to avoid unnecessary wear.

Pros

  • Classic style

  • Large hopper

Cons

  • Might not be as heavy-duty as previous models

Zyliss Susi 3 Garlic Press

Lightweight and slim without sacrificing sturdiness, the Zyliss Susi 3 garlic press is a no-brainer when it comes to great gadgets. This is a bare-bones model that does come with a cleaning tool with its own place in the garlic press, but the tool is said to be knocked loose easily during use so you may want to just take it out before you start.

With its smaller capacity, this garlic press can’t handle as much garlic in one shot as others, but people like it for its ease of use. Reviews mention that the Zyliss garlic press is easy to clean but still not as easy as some others, so you may take some extra time. In the end, it’ll at least save you some money.

Pros

  • Sturdy

  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Cleaning tool may fall out during use

Soft, non-slip handles make the OXO garlic press a comfortable, easy-to-use kitchen tool. This garlic press can handle multiple cloves at a time without any issue, and is easily cleaned with the built-in cleaner. For extra cleaning, you can flip the handles over to clean out excess before throwing this sturdy die-cast zinc garlic press right in the dishwasher without worry.

We like the OXO Good Grips garlic press for a no-fuss, no-muss option when you might not be ready to commit to a heavier, more expensive press.

Pros

  • Comfortable to use

  • Dishwasher safe

Cons

  • None that we can find
