By using downward pressure and a ‘rocking’ motion, this stylish tool breaks up garlic cloves quickly and easily, forcing the pieces up through the mesh of holes in its base. The crushed pieces are then held in the curved design, allowing them to be spooned or scraped conveniently into a pan or bowl. Additional cloves can also be crushed at this stage before emptying. Rocker is easy to clean under running water but is also dishwasher safe. As it is made from brushed, 18/8 stainless steel, the unit can be rinsed under running water, after use, and used to gently rub the hands and fingers to reduce any garlic odor (stainless steel is thought to remove the strong odors left from handling garlic).
