Vera, I have two food processors and rarely use either, except maybe for pie dough once in awhile. They are a pain to clean up, IMO. I do use my little electric chopper thingy (by Sunbeam) fairly often. Also have a reasonably good garlic press, but don't use it much either. Mostly because I don't think about it.

I probably have too many gadgets.

The result is not quite the same, but it's comparable. Toss the cloves with a good olive oil and roast them for about an hour, covered, 350.

That's how I was taught to crush it.

Mudbug, one can never have too many gadgets If you would like one of those marble rolling pins, just let me know..it comes with a wooden stand

I whack my garlic clove with my knife and then mince it. I've got the garlic press, but don't use it. My 14 cup Cuisinart I use fairly often, but use the Kitchen Plus 2000 which is a hand operated food processor much more often.

thanks, bj, for your generous offer, but I will graciously decline. I do my garlic the same way you do in spite of having a little press.

and yes, one can have too many gadgets if one has too few spots to stash them. I draw the line at storing kitchen things in the bedroom.
