Garlic slicers at their best are tools which safely, quickly and evenly slice garlic cloves.
If you have a need to slice garlic (or radishes, ginger, almonds etc.) this tool makes it easy.
Get ultra thin slices of garlic for your dishes and enjoy that special flavor profile.
But it isn't only the flavour, sliced garlic has presentation value as well. This tool can make many foods look good like radish slices with their pink and red or the almond slice which is easier on the teeth and so nice for chocolates.
If you are planning to make garlic chips, this tool will provide amazing results.
Note: This tool is designed for peeled garlic, it won't slice well if the skin is still on.
Use caution and follow manufacturers instructions, that blade is very sharp.
The Oxo garlic slicer featured on this page has a nice safety feature I would like to highlight.
After this utensil is used it may sit in a drawer or elsewhere. Most slicers do not have a great solution of how to keep the slider from moving and more importantly, how to keep the blade from being exposed where it could possible hurt someone.
The Oxo slicer does have a way to keep the blade from being exposed and the slider from sliding. The head portion of the slicer snaps off and can be placed on the slider in the oppisite direction. This keeps the head from sliding and the blade being exposed.
