The health benefits of garlic are legendary. As are the health benefits of ginger. Oh, did I mention you can press ginger? Not only are garlic and ginger healthy–they make your food taste amazing! That is why I am excited to have the opportunity to test and review the Propresser Garlic Press from Orblue.
Features and Benefits:
- Attractive: 100% stainless steel design
- Easy to use: I was pleasantly surprised to lean the Propresser Garlic Press is able to press unpeeled garlic. This makes dealing with those tiny cloves of garlic a breeze. I was able to press a couple of them at a time with no issue
- Nice ergonomic design: Although this press is large and I have small hands, I was able to press unpeeled garlic one-handed! With my other presses I sometimes have to use both hands to press (though admittedly my other press is a cheaper garlic press from the grocery store).
- Large capacity basket: Can accommodate relatively large garlic cloves or press a couple small cloves. Of course, there is a limit, I did manage to find a clove that was larger than the basket and had to cut it in half to press. This was easy and I didn’t have to peel the clove.
- Solidly built: According to my kitchen scale, the Propresser Garlic Press weighs 9.2 ounces. It is 100% stainless steel so should not rust and should hold up well to years of use. That is just a guess, I’ve been using mine for about five days but have used it every day since it arrived.
- Easy to clean: The basket flips open so you can easily access all the parts for quick, easy cleaning.

This is the nicest garlic press that I’ve ever owned! I really don’t have anything negative to say, other than perhaps the list price on Amazon is too high. At the time I wrote this review, the Propresser was listed as a $45 value and was on sale for $18.99. In terms of value, I believe this press is a good value in the $15 – $20 price range, but would hesitate to recommend it at the $45 price. If you are in the market for a new garlic press now (or while on sale), I do recommend it. According to the company’s website, Orblue offers a 100% satisfaction guaranty for the lifetime of the product.
