“The Garlic Twist has been our best selling item EVER! Within 2 months of carrying it, we have sold more of it than any other item we have carried for 2 years. Being a chef and store owner, the GarlicTwist has exceeded my expectations in every possible way.
How many other products in your store can say you have been on a waiting list 13 times?”
Dominic Cimilluca, Owner
Dominic's Kitchen Store, Chicago, Il
“The Garlic Twist has definitely been my hottest item in years – and with good reason: It’s easy to use, it’s easy to demonstrate; it’s easy to clean … and it works! Our customer buy one for themselves then come back for 3 or 4 more for gifts (or vice versa).”
Rita Burns, Owner
Tess’ Great Kitchen Place, Glass Valley, CA
“When you find a product as unique as The Garlic Twist, you know it will attract your customer's attention. It quickly became our #1 selling item. In just 6 months we sold over 300 units. For a newly opened independent retailer, that is more than good news.”
The Steel Mandoline, Pleasantville, New York
“The Sacramento Bee Article gave us a great start. We sold out all 300 units during the first two hours of our demonstration and people formed two lines waiting to sign the special order list! Our own associates love the Garlic Twist and use them at home or give them as gifts … We thought it quite remarkable to have so many repeat customers buying multiple units.”
Mary, Manager, William Glen, Sacramento, CA
“I’ve had three separate persons who told me to carry this product, one a sales rep who doesn’t even rep your line. She just thinks highly of this product and knows how well the other stores are doing with this item and insists that I must bring it in.
The response so far is simply overwhelming, even more when we demonstrate it! This is definitely one of the hottest products we’ve seen in our 25 years in business.”
Jan Boydstun, Owner, Kitchen Kitchen, Indian Wells, CA
“The Garlic Twist is one of our hottest selling and best impulse products at our specialty food store. We have two displays, one situated at a check out register where 9 out of 10 customers inquire about The Garlic Twist, resulting in an add-on to their purchase. We cross-merchandise the other display with pasta and sauces along with garlic cookbooks and fresh garlic braids. Most importantly, we share our personal experience expressing “it’s a kitchen gadget that really works, it’s easy to clean, and we use it at home all the time!”
Nicolette Schroeder, Owner, Santo Stefano del Lago, Grand Haven, MI
“The Garlic Twist is one of our best selling gadgets. It is perfectly suited for a front counter display. Once one of the staff explains what it is to a curious customer, they almost always buy. We also get many return customers buying the Garlic Twists as gifts.”
Mike Preaseau, owner, Cooking Gallery, Truckee, CA
OMG! I used the Garlic Twist tonight and I must say it’s the best Garlic Tool in the world! I love to cook with garlic yet I'm reluctant to due to the hassle of peeling and grinding it all.
Well, watch out Spaghetti! Look out Lasagna! I think you hear me knocking, and I'm bringing my Garlic and the GarlicTwist with me. My worst fear has been conquered. THe Garlic is BACK!

About a month ago, I went to a high-end cooking boutique to get a nice garlic press. The woman who worked there put an all-metal $40 garlic press in my hand and said, "This one is built like a German car. You'll never buy another garlic press again." I looked at it, and it looked like a pain to clean. Right around the corner on a small garlic display was The Garlic Twist. I took one look at its simple-all-over design, put the fancy press right back where I found it, and bought The Garlic Twist for 1/3 the price of the other gadget.
Since the day I brought it home, I haven't used any thing else. It's awesome! It turns out the saleswoman was right after all.... I'll never buy another garlic press again! Thanks!!
OK, I am a convert on this product. I was so skeptical on this item but customers were asking for it, so I brought it in. I mean, I have a knife, I have a press, everything was working just fine with my garlic preparation. But, this item truly does make garlic prep easier. If you like a lot of garlic, this item is for you. The back of this tool is perfectly designed to take the peel off your cloves effortlessly and the twist will quickly mince those cloves with ease. I cannot say enough about how much I love this tool. In my kitchen, it has become my best tool addition since the Microplane.

We have been demonstrating the Garlic Twist for over two years in my store. It sells itself!!!! … . We have two cash registers and one of the Tower Displays at each register. When customers are checking out and have that final impulse and ask about it, we’d just ask them to step into the kitchen and demo it in a matter of seconds --.A demo is worth a thousand words!!
In close it’s been a great business relationship, and we love the same day shipping.
Craig Hutchins, Owner, Leavitts Kitchen Center, St. George, UT.
… Not only are we GREAT cooks----but do we like GARLIC!!!!!! The quicker and cleaner we can get it chopped for our recipes the better. As far as promotional efforts-----that’s how I found out about it! My daughter’s roommate said look at this thing---she got it as a house warming gift---didn’t know where it was purchased.
On second thought----I may need 2 dozen!!! Several of us have second homes. . . .I have three wedding showers….and a bunch of birthdays and am ALWAYS looking for something unique!!!
The 24 are just for giveaways to friends and relatives. We have a "gift closet" and when we find a good thing we stock up on it and use it for gifts. We saw these devices in a little camp store at Cypress Hills, Saskatchewan. We bought one and used it, then immediately convinced two other camping parties with us that they should have one, too.
I purchased my garlic twist while on holiday in Canada two years ago. Its one of the best purchases I have ever made. I have a little problem now and that is everyone wants one so I\'d like to get a few more for gifts but am unable to find anyone who sells them on this side of the world. I live in New Zealand. I have made many online purchases before so was just wondering if you knew anywhere I could purchase them online that would be willing to ship to New Zealand. Thanks for taking your time to read this. Lurene Lee.
I'm not normally excited by kitchen gadgets [basic knives, mortars and manual dexterity are generally good enough for me, but this tool looks brilliant. But, help! I can't seem to buy it online due to an overseas, French shipping address. Are we being snubbed over here? : p This tool looks as though it would be ideal for small quantities of fresh herbs, as well; not just garlic. If it turns out to be as useful as it seems, I will be your best buyer and best overseas advocate ever. I hope you\'ll be in a position to indicate where I might buy the tool either on the internet or in France. Thanks in advance
Thank you so much for the opportunity to use the Garlic Twist. It's wonderful. So fast and efficient! I use garlic every day and it is so quick and easy to use. I will recommend this product to all my family and friends. I also have mentioned it to my son who cooks at a local restaurant. I think everyone should own one. Thank you again,
I purchased the Garlic Twist through Solutions Catalog, they had a great article about it in there. Two things I want to say about this product, first and foremost I was thrilled to see that it is made in the USA! Please don\'t move your facilities out of this great country. Second I love this product and threw away my garlic press, it is so easy to use and clean up. Thank you Eric.
I don't have a garlic press, but I do have this:
It is called a Garlic Twist. You can use it to bash the clove, so the skin peels of easily, then toss two or three cloves in, put the two pieces together and twist a couple times. Makes a nice paste in just a few seconds, rinses clean under the faucet.
I bought mine at a cooking store, but they sell them at Amazon and other on line places. Just google Garlic Twist.
(I don't get a kickback on this--wish I did, cause I recommend them to everyone who likes garlic
And since we're talking garlic, here is a pic of the Garlic Twister. This little kitchen tool is the best thing since the proverbial sliced bread as far as I'm concerned! I gave several for Christmas presents along with a generous bunch of garlic that we grow every year. I told people it would be the stupidest present they would get, but they would love it. I was right. Two people have had me order more for their friends and family. Check it out!

We went to a garlic festival in Agassiz, BC, Canada and I purchased a couple pounds of fresh grown garlic and at the same time purchased your garlic twist and I absolutely love it. I have purchased one garlic press after another over the years and this is the first time I can actually use what I bought. Thank you. Please advise if there is a shop in either Langley or Vancouver where I can purchase more to use as gifts.
Hi there: just a line to say that I finally got around to reading the Taste section of the Sacramento. Bee and read your complete article re your Garlic Twist.
Went out to William Glen's and purchased 3 and simply love it. You are the greatest. While I was there I met a few other people who have also used it and they also loved it.
I definitely will spread the word around. Thanks for your great invention.
… Actually, I own one and already love it! One of my sons is a real foodie and I found and bought the Garlic Twist in a local kitchen supply store, intending to include it with the garlic I was giving him for a Christmas present last year. However, I was so curious I tried it myself first and was so impressed with it I kept it! Ever since I have been demo-ing it for friends.
Just purchased the Garlic Twist on Friday. Have used it once and will never be without it. What a simple way to deal with garlic. Have bought 2 more as presents and I\'m sure they will be just as amazed at the ease of use. Thank you for making it so easy to prepare garlic. June V
Hi...we purchased our first Garlic Twist a couple of years ago in Grass Valley. Since then we have purchased three more and our friends have been so impressed with it that I think at least four more have been purchased. Somehow I misplaced the top part of my original one. It has the old design..not like the new ones with the ridges on the edges. Is it somehow possible to get a replacement top? Any color would be fine. Thank you so much for a great product!
