Push an UNPEELED clove of garlic through a garlic press then use a knife to transfer the garlic straight to your dish.
No peeling, chopping, mincing or cleaning necessary. Simply remove the peel from the press then the sticky mess goes with it. A quick run through the dishwasher will make it like new again.
If you're in the market for a garlic press, I highly recommend the Pampered Chef garlic press. I've had mine for over a decade and it's still going strong.
