Silicone Garlic Peeler Tube is an Easy Peel Solution for Garlic. Fresh Garlic without odour transfer to hands. Easy to Clean.

Never thought this thing would work, but it does, and quickly.
I have always smashed the cloves with a knife, then topped and tailed.

Mine is Green by the way

Most impressed

Normally I hate preparing Garlic, the mess the smell, the fiddling with the last bit of purple skin that just will not come off etc.

This makes garlic prepration a doddle and somewhat satisfying. Its real quick, you waste none of the clove, and they are not sticky and smelly when peeled.

I only wish I had got one much sooner.

press hard on it with a big knife and all of the skin comes off or get the frozen for 50p a bag a morrisons even better

how does it work ? just looks like a tube

Put the clove inside the tube (which is lined with ridges) and roll the tube on a hard surface with the flat of your hand for a couple of seconds. It sounds like paper rustling when the peel has been removed.

It even removed the harder outer white peel that sometimes stays attached to the cloves.
Its quite amazing.

agreed thats what i do. (the former that is, never buy frozen)

Yes,these things are really good with the usual shop bought garlic.
Not so good with the VERY fat cloves of my home grown stuff.
And Morrison;s frozen stuff is a bargain and ideal when you want LOTS and have limited time.

These are brill! Cheers Kinell! Been looking for one for ages!

Thanks
is it safe to pay using visa card?
have you used this web b4?

thanks sounds quite simple.

never knew you could buy frozen garlic! brill

sounds like a good device but only beneficial if you use lots of garlic on a reg basis. the odd 2/3 cloves once a week or so dont make it worth while to me but heat added.

good find Kinell

Would not have thought of that ....cool.

Do you know that they sell these real cheap in TJ HUGHS???? Just look for them in the kitchen areas. They have them in the Kettering branch anyway :thumbsup:

deal extreme are good. shipped from hong kong so delivery like 2 weeks

Why bother!!

Just buy pickled garlic from your local asian stores.

what the heck is this ? I'm confused.
looks fishy with its pink colour.
is it a cheaper verion of a Ann Summers gadget ? :whistling: or is it really a garlic peeler ?

Having seen what it does to the skin of a garlic clove .....:w00t:

..... I would say definitely Garlic Peeler

Great gadget....I've seen it before but never bought. I use Lazy or Easy garlic in jars from the Supermarket. (I work at Asda). Prepared chopped garlic in suflower oil. All you need is a teaspoon!!!

got one of these - they are excellent...
mine came with a little garlic plate thing.... basically a saucer with a very vey rough bottom, you rub the peeled glove on it and it has the same effect as crushing it.... nice ;-) Got it at "The Spirit Of Christmas" show at Olympia a couple of years back.:santa:

I've never heard of this but from the videos on youtube, it looks to be -the business-.
I love garlic but hate garlicy fingers so if this works I'll be very happy.
Price is great too - looks to be a minimum of double that even without delivery at most other places.

:thumbsup:

Might as well try it out at least. Only a £1 and a bit. H & R! Good work!

Looks cool...Ta !!!!!:thumbsup:

Yes, and any number of other places too - and that resembles fresh garlic in WHICH way?

Bearing in mind those people who either hate Vinegar with a passion (me!) or those with a sensitivity to it (a few people I know) and the fact that pickling TOTALLY changes the taste of any food, it's a great substitute for it!
Anyone for VINEGAR Bread, or perhaps King prawns with Chilli, Garlic and VINEGAR sounds nicer? :-(

Frozen garlic isn't a very good substitute, but workable for some dishes which are getting a long cooking (I usually buy it in Sainsbury's, who have frozen Ginger too which is more like the real thing; although probably only in the stores with ethnic food)

just ordered mine. It came to £1.12 today so the approx bit makes sense.

Totally agree! There is NO substatute for fresh Garlic. Sometimes I use the Tumes of puree'd Garlic you can buy in Teco's.It get's good reviews from Cooking mag's etc. Going by the reviews on here I have just ordered oneof these too. So thats Op!:thumbsup:

This is a fantastic gadget, my boyfriend just got one and can't stop talking about it! :whistling:

Just been peeling garlic for the sunday roast and my fingers stinks so Bought 2, one for my daughter. Thanks for posting.

looks like this is the product in use: ]http//ww…-O0

looks pretty cool, will order one and find out! thanks!

Just sitting here laughing to myself - how can there be soooooooooooo many coments about a garlic peeler ???

H & R added just for making me laugh on the dreary sunday!

Quick fix: Lemon juice will get rid of most of the smell. For a solution kinder to your skin wash your hands under running water whilst rubbing the back of a stainless steel object (back of a spoon etc) over them. That should get rid of the pong.

]You can buy stainless steel "soap" for this purpose.

Yeah, unless you are like me... other people don't seem to have this problem, but is one reason I DO often use pre prepared garlic even though not so good! The smell on my hands lasts 3 days or more! Best solution I have found is to use cooking oil on hands to clog the pores up (perhaps?), then wipe off before peeling garlic, so everything doesn't slip; then it WILL wash off after. Works a bit for chillis too (the "HEAT transfer problem," you KNOW what I mean!) :whistling:

Was that a question?

Maybe some people like to put fresh garlic in their food, not the pickled variety! :whistling:

Do you buy pickled onions to put in your spag bol etc to save peeling fresh onions? :-D

:thumbsup: Sounds too good to miss:-D

As has been said, you can get them in John Lewis etc. but in my experience I end up spending way more than a quid if shopping at John Lewis's and the likes:oops:
