Garlic Roller

  1. Using your fingers, divide the whole bulb into individual cloves. Store remaining cloves with the skin on.
  2. To remove the skin, place clove into Garlic Roller and apply slight pressure down as you roll the roller back and forth against a hard flat surface.

(Tip: make sure to clear the tube of any remaining skin, this little step will help prevent littering your drawer with flakes)

Garlic Chopper

    1. For chopped garlic, once you have removed the skin, place one piece of garlic (2 if tiny) into carriage of Garlic Chopper. Roll chopper for 15-20 seconds or until clove has been fully crushed.
    2. Remove from carriage and you are ready to use!

    2. Pour in Olive Oil (Use what you have on hand, we’ll explain about the different types later on)
    3. Press pourer into top of bottle
    4. Enjoy! (Tip – go out and buy some fresh bread to dip in olive oil)
