Product of the Week: 9/9/08

Part kitchen tool, part Tonka truck, Chef’n’s GarlicZoom lets kids join in on pre-dinner prep. Simply place a clove or two inside the plastic, palm-sized device, and as you roll it back and forth on its wheels, four stainless-steel blades inside mince the garlic into tiny, uniform pieces. The blade is safely removable, and the whole thing dishwasher safe. Added bonus: Your fingernails won’t smell as though you’re trying to ward off creatures from the Hellmouth; $9.99. www.chefn.com
