|The garlic zoom lx - isn't she a beaut?|
Isn't is the cutest thing?! So sweet. My kids took one look at that and wanted to drive it around the counter, and here's the greatest part... they CAN! Yes let me give you the exciting play by play:
|toss a few cloves of garlic in the garlic zoom|
So you get a few cloves of garlic. I used three here. Also if look closely in the back I have a jar of peeled garlic cloves (a very exciting discovery in the produce aisle with the refrigerated salad dressings. So handy and ready to go whenever I need them). Then close the lid and you are ready to roll. Literally.

So with three cloves it feels like it's not going to roll at first, but just do a couple of back and forth rolls until the blades really start chopping and BAM, within a few seconds your garlic is being minced before your eyes.

|perfectly minced garlic... HOORAY|
Yes so just keep the thing closed, tip the whole thing over, tap it on a dish towel for cushion and pop up the lid and tap out your perfectly minced garlic. I rinsed the thing out with hot water then, get this, it's DISHWASHER SAFE to boot. Hallelujah! I do realize Alton Brown would frown upon a "one trick wonder" gadget as he prefers multitaskers, but this one time I would say it's totally worth it!! A garlic zoom a day keeps the vampires away!
