My wife uses a lot of garlic. She is from the Philippines and a bunch of her recipes call for garlic. She came to this country thirteen years ago and she loves to cook. She bought a cheap garlic press at the dollar store. The thing worked, but it was messy and very hard to use. My wife is a small woman and it hard for her to use the cheap press. This garlic press is heavy, but it works really well. You put the garlic cloves in the basket and press it. It was easy for my wife to do with two hands. She said it was very easy to use. I tried it with an peeled garlic clove and it worked perfectly. We will use this garlic press every time we need one for all of my wife's recipes. The press is made of strong stainless steel and will last a lifetime. It is easy to clean. We used warm water, soap and a sponge and easily cleaned the press. This is a product that was fun to review and one we will actually continue to use. Great product that deserves five stars.
