These work very well as potholders, and I second the review for using them as jar openers!
If you smear them with chocolate pudding, it can take a while to get the bits out of the grooves, but that was an unfortunate happenstance :)

I like the variety of tools, the material, and the built-in rest. But I would really like the stand to have small hooks on the arms. It's too easy to send the tools flying when you rotate the stand!

Rinse with dishwashing detergent and rub gently onto hands to remove every trace of garlic, fish or onion odors. Stainless-steel binds with sulfuric ingredients to lift odors.

Much better than a press

This is so easy to use. I just rock and slide across the garlic and get nice small pieces. I use the back of a small paring knife to scrape bits off the holes as I mince. Also, if the cloves are large, like the ones I get from my CSA, I cut them in half first so that I'm not mincing more than about a half inch of garlic.
Cleanup is simple - I scrub the holes on both sides with a dish brush right after using it.
