Simply grasp the handle with one hand and press down on the top with the palm of your other hand. The bottom of the crusher is slightly concaved to stop the garlic from flying out as it is being crushed.
Although it was designed with garlic in mind, this utensil can be used to crush or mash anything you want.
This item stands about 6 inches (16 cm) tall and has a base diameter of 2.5 inches (6.5cm).

TO CARE FOR THIS ITEM:
Lightly scrub with a damp soapy sponge to clean the surface of this crusher. Dry immediately afterward with a towel.
Do NOT soak in a sink or put in a dishwasher. The water will cause the wood to expand, warp and possibly split.
Reapply coats of food-safe oil every month or so with a sponge or paper towel. I recommend using vegetable oil because most people already have some in their kitchen and it works very well to seal and protect the surface.
