First up was the set of stainless steel bowls. This one I’ve tried in the past. You’re supposed to be able to put an entire head of garlic in the bowls and hold them together and shake vigorously for five seconds. Let’s make some noise
I shook vigorously, which created a heck of a clatter, for at least 10 seconds.
1. Let's make some noise
Result: Two bulbs peeled, 10 bulbs not
Next up was the ultimate kitchen multitasker: the canning jar. I had a wide mouth pint size available, with a plastic lid. Bonus points: I use these jars to bop whole heads of garlic to separate bulbs. The ultimate multitasker
I gave this the same shake as the stainless steel bowls, vigorously, for about 10 seconds.
2. The ulitmate multitasker
Result: Seven bulbs peeled, six bulbs not peeled.
More successful, but not a win.
Next, I brought out the unitasker, the silicone sleeve. I popped a few bulbs in it, rolled on the cutting board for about three seconds, et voilà, every one of them was peeled. Unitasker FTW
3. Unitasker, FTW
Result: Six bulbs peeled, zero not peeled.
The clear winner.
