If you have a standing mixer, peeling garlic can be very easy.

Just drop the unpeeled cloves into the bowl of an standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Turn the mixer on to the lowest speed possible, and watch the machine do all the work for you!

Very Happy If you are tired of paper towels or wax paper getting down into the food that you are reheating or cooking in the microwave try using paper plates to cover.
I buy a large package of just the thinnest and the cheapest ones I can find. Think there are about 150 in a pkg. Not only are they good for that but also for many other kitchen uses. I would be lost without my handy stack. Laughing

That's a great idea grandmacookn. I will have to remember that. I can see where that would be much easier than a paper towel. Thanks for sharing.

There's a new product to cover your food in the microwave(MW). It looks like a (round)piece of tulle with little plastic pieces stuck to the edges.
The plastic is light weight bu heavy enough to keep the edges down over the dish/bowl in the MW. When it get sdirty you just rinse it under hot water or wash in a small bit of dish detergent.
I used to use the paper plate thing but since buying this I don't need to anymore.
Garlic can be peeled very easily by simply placing the flat side of a knife blade on the clove and hit down on it. The skins comes right off. No need to dirty a mixer bowl.
There is quite a thread, actually 3 threads, on recpezaar.com thatdeals with gadgets. We even have a gadget swap going on.
I recently also purchased a very small "mandoline" especially for slicing garlic and other small items. It will shred or slice them. I can use it for nuts, garlic, ginger, etc..
