    all i can think is: dude, now you have to wash two bowls.

  • Rebecca Says:

    WAS THAT MAGIC?!!?!?!?!

    that cannot actually be a thing.

  • Jennifer Says:

    I’ve tried it – it’s actually kind of hard to hold the bowls together unless they have a really sturdy lip – mine I couldn’t hold it tight enough to not have the garlic cloves go flying everywhere. And you really do need to ‘shake the dickens’ out of it.

  • Erin Says:

    Maybe you could put a big rubberband around the bowls to help keep them together?

  • Butternut B Says:

    Or you could buy garlic already mashed? Not that I’ve tried that.. But peeling it doesn’t bug me!

    We do it with a couple of round cake pans – easier to hold onto? – and it works like a charm.

    It works, and it’s LOUD. Hide the pets.

  • Matt Says:

    I felt the same way about cooking corn in the husk in the microwave.

  • Peeps Says:

    You can also toss them in the food processor with the pastry blade on. Sometimes, the peels are even nice and stick up on the sides leaving the cloves below!
