Thanks to this blog, I can tell you that I’ve owned this item since November 30, 2015. Alas, it has now broken. This was the most-used item that I purchased with my going-away gift certificate, though I still use the cheese slicer a lot and the stem thing when I have herbs to deal with. Have I made a cocktail since that post? Possibly not.
I will miss my garlic smasher. I’m not sure if I will miss it enough to purchase another one, though.
