    Hello everyone, I have a quick question that hopefully someone here can help me out with. I need help identifying an older garlic press that has been in the family for years. Its quite simple however nothing I have used since has compared to it. There are no markings or brandings anywhere on the press. It is a slate gray color and all metal. Any ideas wold be much appreciated, Thanks!!!

    I have one just like that except mine is silverfish - polished aluminum I believe. I bought it in the 1980s and cant recall the brand. I don't think mine has a brand name on it either. I'll bet that you can find the brand name if you look in the equipment section of the early Frugal Gourmet cookbooks. I seem to recall buying mine because that was what he used/recommended.

    I love trivia. This is a good one!

    Forget the "Frug"... he liked the SUSI/zygliss. I forgot.

    Mine is unmarked too. I think it is a knock-off of the Fortuna self-cleaning garlic press. Google it and view images!

    The garlic press looks like it is made out of a resin. Looks pretty sturdy.
