Crush garlic, eject the rest


If you’ve ever broken a garlic press you may want to invest in a Garject ($35 to $38), a solid, chrome-plated zinc tool with the strength to crush two or three unpeeled cloves at a time. Produced by the Australian company Dreamfarm, the press’s long handles provide good leverage, and have two attachments (available in red or black), a scraper to wipe away remaining garlic from the holes, and an eject button that flips the peels out of the well into the trash. You will own this garlic press for life.
