A new garlic mincer needs to be added to the list of kitchen gadgets that we need to pick up. Our old garlic mincer made out of cast aluminum had its last meal one night. I was crushing cloves of garlic for a recipe when I came across a tough stem that I didn't feel like removing. As I crushed down the clove, the handle snapped!
The broken handle snapped down on my pinky finger and pinched the end of it creating a potent blood blister under my skin.
The blood blister will heal, but the garlic mincer will not. The search is on for a heavier duty garlic mincer.
