Garlic Press

The garlic press is a kitchen tool project that was developed for Kitchen Innovations Inc. a kitchen tool company. The project required concept designs that were presented using hand sketches. The validation of the functionality of the cutting and mincing blades could only be truly tested after production tooling was kicked off.

Steel Safe Design Strategy

The force required to cut the garlic as well as the sharpness of the cutting blades made it difficult to test the design during the prototype process. As a result, the strategy of steel safe design was implemented on all the features that needed tuning. Features and parts were made intentionally too loose and carefully the steel on the tools was gradually shaved off to tighten the parts to the desired specification.
