Well Rated Finds The Best UK Products

Market Insight


Owner ratings in the garlic press market are heavily influenced by two main factors: easy to clean and durable design.

Owners are also most satisfied when garlic presses are simple to use and suitable for the dishwasher.

Bonus features of the better presses: minimal effort to crush, strong handles, and an ergonomic design.

Buyers in this market are often disappointed with garlic presses. They are either too fiddly, too difficult to clean, or simply break in use.

Some people will go back to using a knife, while others persevere until they find a quality one. In many reviews, we read of people trying 2 or 3 different models before finding the model that performs as expected.

It is a market that tries to innovate. Rocker designs, crush boxes are two of the newer variants for sale. Yet the metal, handle-type, garlic presses continue to perform best.

We’ve calculated the best-rated garlic presses across Amazon, Argos, John Lewis and Tesco since 2015. The WMF garlic press has been the highest rated for three years. Impressive.


In this 2016 update to our best garlic presses report, we saw the most presses at Amazon. Tesco sold around 30 presses on the day of research; John Lewis sold five and Argos, just one.

Easy cleaning and strength are two main factors to consider when buying a new garlic press.

Because of the small size of this sector, it is easy to navigate.

There are lots of highly rated garlic presses for sale. This is one of the highest scoring reports we have compiled.
