Garlic Press and Slicer : The cut of garlic influences its flavor. Crush garlic to release more of its aromatic oils than simply chopping or slicing it. Minced garlic has a volatile flavor that disperses quickly. Press garlic for a rich, aromatic paste. Press or slice garlic in separate nonstick chambers. The slicing chamber produces eight perfectly thin slices. Easy to clean with the help of the custom cleaning tool (included). Dishwasher-safe.

This is one of the best inventions for anyone who uses as much garlic as I do. Slices or crushes garlic beautifully. Even bought one for my brother who also loves garlic. Definitely highly recommended!!!

I own several electric skillets but this by far is my favorite. I prepared lamb shanks for Easter and this has the depth and space to cook enough for a large group with no problems whatsoever. Very easy to clean, too!!!

I have bought several pans to use on my induction cook top only to be disappointed time and again. Until now, that is. This is the best pan I've ever owned!!!! Go ahead, order it, it's worth every cent.

I bought 2 of these. One for me and one for a friend. She was just as thrilled by the size and quality. I make my own garlic infused olive oil and this little gem is ideal as the oil has to be refrigerated and this fits perfectly. I will be ordering a few more of these for gifts. If you're considering buying this item go right on and do it!!!! You'll be glad you did.
