I'm going start off saying I am not a professional cook. Nor am I even an amateur. I think I'm between the "boiling water" and the "how did my boiling water catch on fire?" type of cook. That being said, you can basically surmise that I can't cook, or at least that's what my wife says. However, that also being said, I don't think I ever enjoyed mincing garlic so much in my life! And that is alot being said! (which is 3 times, if you're keeping count).
This thing has wheels. I mean seriously, it has WHEELS! Wives/girlfriends if your out there, if you have simple minded men in your lives who you want incorporated into your cooking routine this is the product for you. Its like how Dyson got men vacuuming by including that dumb ball into his vacuum cleaners (I've also never vacuumed so much in my life after that). The other garlic mincer devices I've used are either too precarious (like those micro-planes that I've severed my finger tips on) or require too much maintenance. Speaking of maintenance, I'm going to level with you and before you get all red faced and angry at me, I need you to keep an open mind. You ready? Ok, we use this thing exclusively for garlic. To clean it I just give it a quick rinse. Why not a deep exfoliating herbal wash with all the fixings? Because I'm not too worried about transferring the "garlic flavor" onto the next piece of garlic I will be mincing. It does come apart if you're into that soap stuff. I've said my peace.
Anyways, this little guy is also pretty solidly built, sometimes I let my 2 and 3 year old play with it (their weak fingers can't really get the garlic to chop). Overall I love this product, and now I'm more convinced than ever that the future of kitchen gadgets will be wheel-based (or somehow attached to balls). Knives with wheels, toasters with wheels, a giant ball-based taco machine, the possibilities are endless!
