|Well, since you ASK :-) The rocker press is the one I use nearly all the time, it does a good job without pureeing the snot out of the bulb. Sprinkle a little salt on the puree and keep working it, yum :-) As for the press, *that* sort of press is anathema to me because it is a wedge-squeeze setup and it applies WAY too uneven a pressure across the bulb. When I *do* want to puree my garlic I use a "pneumatic" press, the kind with a round barrel and the plunger on a hinged lever arm, that presses down evenly on the entire clove at once. Thanks for asking :-)
If you wanna know why I'm waxing so eloquent, go to my profile and look at my very first DPC Challenge entry, December 2004 :-)
I like the shot, BTW. I like straightforward visual essays on mundane implements and tools...
