As you may know, we are not big fans of the garlic press: it crushed the garlic too small and it’s too annoying to clean out. So we remain big fans of the Garlic Rocker.
But sometimes we need sliced garlic, and I always worry that slicing anything as small as garlic provides a better-than-even chance of slicing my finger. So if I can find a tool that is both efficient and effective to do the job, I’ll give it a try.
And I have to say that I find myself in a 3-way relationship: I still love the Garlic Rocker, but oh, you Garlic Cube. It is the first garlic tool since the Garlic Rocker that has swept me off my feet!
The Garlic Cube by RSVP is a sturdy cube that’s more-or-less 2¾” /7cm in any direction. It’s small but mighty. It has 2 sets of stainless steel cutting grids: an ⅛”/.3cm dice on one side and a ⅛”/.3cm slice on the other. Both grids are removable for cleaning. There is a collecting container which you just have to remember to insert the right way. The presser teeth at both ends come complete with removable cleaning grids, that lift the garlic remnants from between the teeth. And all of this is top-rack dishwasher safe and self-contained for easy storage.
So how well does it work (you may ask)? We’ve become fans and think it works great! Like the Big Mouth Chopper, which we love for all major chopping jobs, this works by using the lid to push the garlic through the grid or the slicer. The Garlic Cube minces or slices garlic in one simple push-down motion. It has a satisfying and sturdy feel with nicely sharp blades: the pieces of garlic are cleanly sliced or diced.
But this is not just a unitasker. We actually love this too for finely mincing chilis, so that the heat is more evenly distributed throughout the dish.
We use garlic… a lot! And this Garlic Cube has made using garlic even easier. It’s small, but mighty… a great performer, and a real Cool Tool.
