PMAE No. 346

Age gets to us all. My garlic press, aged approximately 65 years, has begun to oxidize. When your garlic turns black it's time to look for a new one. I have had this for 40+ years and my Grandmother used it since mid 1950's so, it has served well. I loathe to replace it but, must.
Damn, bet a new one won't last that long. I use a Joseph Joseph garlic crusher ( flat thing with square holes in it) rather than a press these days, I found it easier to clean and quicker to use.

@golftragic I know and agree that quality isn't a top priority any longer. I will look to see if I might be able to find the crusher you suggest. I also like the idea of a crusher in the house 💪💪

Great image! I hope you find one that you like as well. It's a hard thing to retire a well-loved and well-used tool.

Great picture. It is almost an antique.

Great story and pic. Moody. Glad you took a pic before you disposed of it. Do you have an old pic of when you or your grandmother was using it?
