VERMONT - Garlic Crusher

VERMONT - Garlic Crusher



This is an old-school New England kitchen tool that Vermont Bowl is proud to produce. It is really a two-for-one tool that is complete with tidbits of information on the attached tag. A handy item in any kitchen for crushing herbs and seeds as well as garlic.

OK, for those of you unfamiliar with the working of this item, here's what you do:
1. Simply place the rounded top of the Crack and Peel™ firmly in the palm of your hand.
2. Lay the garlic clove on its side and place the flat end of the Crack and Peel on top of the clove.
3. Press down firmly until you hear a cracking sound.
4. The garlic skin can now be easily peeled off.
A bonus use for the Crack and Peel is to reverse it and use the round end as a pestle in a convenient bowl.
Complete with tag identifying your Canterbury's Crack and Peel® as the genuine original article and providing complete instructions for use.

Vermont Bowl Company is a privately owned company located in Wilmington Vermont. With very few exceptions all the products are manufactured right in their own facility. Their craftspeople are both men and women, young and old, with the longest serving having been with the company for over 30 years. They have been producing fine wood products since 1967 when John McLeod first started in a borrowed workshop just months after emigrating from Scotland.

John worked for a number of years as an individual craftsman. The business went through all the traditional stages of borrowed workshops, house basements, tiny converted gas stations and property purchases finally followed by five factory extensions and the development of two attached retail stores.

No other company produces a range of wooden bowls in production quantities to equal that of The Vermont Bowl Company. Because of their earlier years of individual craftsmanship, a tradition of standards was imbued into the company, which has translated into a reputation for quality and integrity in company policy and in product which is the envy of the industry.

VP Tommy Fox has been with the company for over 30 years. Tommy is a partner in the firm with John and it is with Tommy that the future of the company lies. Tommy and John collaborate in a number of areas such as design and future planning but Tommy has complete responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the company.
