Before, chefs and home cooks had to use slow, inefficient, unhealthy, smelly, dangerous methods to peel garlic, but now, with the Garlic Shaker® you simply break apart an entire head of garlic, separate the cloves, and put them into the Garlic Shaker. Close it. Shake it up for 10-30 seconds, and bam! An entire head of garlic is peeled and ready for roasting, grilling or sautéing.

“The secret is simple physics. Inside are spiral rings that vibrate the garlic before it hits each end popping off the skin,” said co-founder Matthew Ramos, a former music business executive who has worked with many national recording artists.

Garlic Shaker has two lids, one on each end, for easy cleaning by hand or in the dishwasher. It is hour-glass shaped and fast becoming the next must-have device for commercial and consumer kitchens.

“Our modestly priced garlic peeler looks more like a device designed by Apple than a kitchen gadget. We are changing the way people peel garlic by shaking it up,” Ramos said.

“Cooks have disliked peeling garlic forever. Garlic Shaker turns the tedious task of hand peeling garlic into a fun and playful activity,” said co-founder Adam Wagner former event designer for Apple and art director for MTV.
Designed for home cooks as well as professional chefs, Garlic Shaker takes the drudgery out of garlic peeling — whether one clove or dozens — quickly and easily.

“It’s functional with no distracting gimmicks,” Ramos said.  “We’ve conducted numerous tests on weight, durability and maneuverability to ensure it exceeds customers’ expectations for how to peel garlic safely.”

Garlic Shaker is artistically crafted in five designer shades of red, white, blue, black and silver.

Garlic Shaker is 9-inches high, 3.5-inches long, and 3 inches wide. It weighs 9 ounces.  It has a patent-pending ergonomic design with multiple impact points to remove garlic skins.
