Review: KitchenAid Garlic Press

kitchenaid-garlic-press

Whether you are just a fan of fresh garlic or do a lot of Italian cooking and like to follow those old family recipes, you likely need a lot of minced garlic in your kitchen.

While you can spend a lot of time hand peeling and chopping garlic down into those tiny pieces, who has the time?

If you are already working on great cooking, you don’t have time to deal with that type of detail when there is an easier way to do it.

That is why the KitchenAid Garlic Press was created. The KitchenAid Garlic Press will make quick work of those cloves. You put a few cloves in the catch basin, press the two handles together and watch the perfectly minced garlic come out of the other side of the press.

Once you’re done pressing all the garlic you need, clean up is not that hard.

First, this press is nonstick, which makes it easier to get the garlic off.

Second, this press comes with a brush that will help you get any caught up garlic out of the mechanism to speed up the process.

What We Like:

  • The garlic presses through the holes instead of up the sides like you may have had happen in less well-designed models.
  • Comes with a brush to clean out the garlic that gets in the way when you are using it.


Other Things To Consider:

  • It could have been  built to be a bit more durble, some of the plastic parts are liable to break.

Review: KitchenAid 700-Watt 12-Cup Food Processors

Kitchenaid 12 cup processorIf you need to make quick work of some of the ingredients in a recipe, KitchenAid 700-Watt 12-Cup Food Processors are the way to go.

And that’s just what this little number is, a 700-watt food processor. Double that strength with very sharp blades and a 12-cup bowl and you see the potential for how much you can chop, dice or puree in just moments.

Depending on what type of food you are putting into the machine, it comes with dual feed tubes and the option of chopping into the large bowl or the mini-bowl which holds four cups, perfect for making less of a mess on those smaller jobs.

In addition to slicing and chopping, this food processor is also a great tool for the baker in the family. It comes with a dough blade to perfectly mix and prepare batter for cooking.

What We Like

  • The variety in cutting capabilities from chopping to grating and everything in between.
  • Many of the parts are dishwasher safe to make for more simple clean up.
  • It comes with a toolbox to keep everything together and save a lot of time that could be used digging around in drawers looking for pieces.
  • It has the combination of sharp blades and a powerful engine to make fast work of any food that is put through the machine.

What We Don’t Like

  • It has a number of small pieces that all have to be in the right place in order for the machine to work. It can get frustrating if you only have one piece out of place and can’t operate it.
  • We would prefer variable speeds to the one ‘super power’ speed that it comes with.
  • There are a number of small places where food can get caught in the processing and take time to clean up.

  • The handle has an opening to allow it to be hung from a utensil rack.
  • It’s strong and durable. Excellent quality!

REVIEW: KitchenAid Box Grater

Kitchenaid Box GraterThe humble grater is no longer so humble now that Kitchenaid have gotten into the act. The KitchenAid Box Grater is made from 18/8 stainless steel and comes with three grating sides – find, medium and coarse – and one slicing side.

What makes this grater so good is the additional plastic food catcher that fits onto the bottom of the grater. This allows you to grate your foods directly into it. This means less mess plus the plastic container has measurements on the side so you know exactly how much your are grating without having to transfer the contents into measuring cups.

The container comes with a lid so you can store the contents of whatever you have grated in the fridge.

What We Like

  • The base of the grater is rimmed with rubber to ensure that the grater doesn’t slip across the counter when you are using it.
  • The grater is made from 18/8 stainless steel.
  • It’s dishwasher safe so you don’t have to worry about cutting your hands on this one if you have to hand wash it.

What We Don’t Like

  • It’s big so will take up a bit of storage space. Compare this with the OXO Good Grips Grater if you are looking for a similar box style grater that is easier to store.
