You could buy a garlic peeler, or use Martha Stewart’s trick and then have two extra bowls to clean…but if you’re already going to dirty a knife, isn’t this just easier? And it’s oh-so-fun to smash things!

      • Two ways to everything … I like the clean and easy one – given about 20 away to friends … and they love it – and you can peel up to 5 gloves in one time. As you say .. they are cheap.
