You and GG were the ones that first got me to try it that way, I have been hooked ever since!

I guess I meant "mincer"? I'm struggling to find the right word...

I really like to use my chef's knife to chop/mince garlic, because sometimes I want different sizes of pieces, depending on the dish. Sometimes minced, sometimes chopped, sometimes just thinly sliced. I like to be able to control that...
Saludos, Karen

I second that. Crush it and remove skin at the same time. Much faster with a knife.

For some reason I don't enjoy mincing, crushing garlic with a knife. It seems too sticky to me. I'm really happy with my Budum Garlic Press. My kids got it for me at WS. I always cut my cloves in half lengthwise, keep the paper on the clove and put the cut side down into the press. With the skin still attached the garlic remnants are easy to peel right off of the press.
