"great idea just cant get it to work" star star star_border star_border star_border Like the other reviewer I thought that perhaps my garlic was a bit old hence it wouldn't peel properly. Tried a fresh clove and still didn't do a great deal. I've resorted back to using the flat side of a knife and having smelly garlic fingers again. Richard - 24 October 2011 support_agent A note from the team Thanks for your feedback. Our buyer has given some tips for using this: Peel one clove at a time. Make sure the clove is at the bottom of the garlic peel then place the garlic peel on its side on a flat worktop. Use the palm of you hand to roll the garlic up and down the surface. A couple of rolls up and down should be enough to remove the skin. If the clove falls out of the peel this is normally because the clove isn’t right to the bottom of the garlic peel. Thanks for your review, we hope this helps.
