      You should be able to buy a garlic clove from the store and put it in the garlic shaker and have it work. None of the garlic cloves I buy are visibly wet in any sort. However, when I put it in the shaker and shake it, the garlic is wet and doesn’t peel very well at all. You shouldn’t need to dehydrate your garlic before using it. Thumbs down.

      so I received my garlic shaker set about 2 weeks ago and I am so pleased. I had to use it a few times to get the hang of it. But it performs as stated. I tried it first on some garlic that was kinda old (really old..lol) and it didn't go so well. Seemed the inside was to small for the garlic to move around properly, but tried it again on some garlic that was not so old and it performed beautifully. I am so happy and it makes my quest for my love of garlic that much easier. Thank you for an excellent product. : )

      It is tremendous!!!!
      You can shake it but you can’t break it. Mess is only inside the Shaker, just dump it. No more finger or table mess. Thank you

      I just want to thank you for delivering the Garlic Shaker. I ordered the 7-pc option for family and friends. We’ve started using it and love it! Wish you all the best.

      @Lev - We responded to your private message. We are still in the process of shipping USA rewards. We have not gotten to overseas backers like yourself in the Ukraine.

    8. Lev Hembarskyi on February 13

      I have not yet sent a payment link for shipping

      @Jen the Viking: No worries. Sorry you don’t like the color black.

    10. Garlic Shaker Creator on February 9

      @Fernando - We are still working to get all of the rewards shipped in the USA.

      @Andy Hughes - It is likely that your garlic isn't dry enough. Most garlic from the store isn't actually ready to use. It is too fresh and not ready to use when it come from the crocery store. The thin film layer is edible, holds a lot of nutrition, and doesn't need to be removed unless you prefer it that way. The GarlicShaker was designed solely to remove the skin (outer husk as you call it). It solves that single pain point in the kitchen. Consider letting your garlic dry when you get it home from the store and don't ever store garlic in the refrigerator.

    12. Garlic Shaker Creator on February 9

      @Sunil - We are still working on the USA backers rewards.

    13. Jeffrey KM on February 8

      @Fernando, I believe only the U.S. rewards were sent. I think those of us living outside the U.S. will be sent later.

    14. Fernando Maceira Cámara on February 8

      Is there a way to know when your reward has shipped? I am a backer in Mexico City and still haven't received any confirmation. Thanks!

      @Garlic Shaker - I know they were colors of your choosing, I was just expressing my disappointment they were all the same color.

      I finally received my shaker the other day. I must say that I have never been more disappointed in a kitchen product ever. First the only way to get this to even partially work is you have to stuff it full with a whole garlic head. Will not work on just a few. Then even with a whole head I shake it for well beyond the 30 sec and maybe get 2 cloves that worked. And worked I mean it just removes the outer husk. The thin film layer around the garlic has to be hand peeled. Put them back in and try again, no luck. Worst product ever and can't believe I wasted money on this and that your marketing is so deceiving.

      @Terri Chauss: We did not make the white ones because they looked terrible.

    21. Terri Chauss on February 6

      Hello...I was a backer for a $75.00 pledge for 5 Garlic Shakers, colors of your choice. All of the photos of Garlic Shakers I have seen are all while with various color accent rims. I received all 5 of my shakers and 2 of them are completely solid black in color. I do not like the black ones at all and feel like your promotional ads were misleading as I would not have ordered knowing that I may be receiving black ones. Am I able to return the black ones in exchange for the white ones featured in your promotions? I do not have any direct contact or mailing address for your company. Thanks

    22. Garlic Shaker Creator on February 6

      @Backers - Demo Video in the updates didn't render properly on Kickstarter. We are woking to correct the problem. We will re-post ASAP. Also, some of you who backed for multiple GarlicShakers will be getting multiple packages because of how we batched the shipping. For example, if you backed for five you will be getting one package with three and two individual packages.

    23. Garlic Shaker Creator on February 6

      @Gregory - You were sent 3 in one package and two singles for a total of five. You just have not recieved the other ones yet.

      I paid $75 - buy 3 get 2 free and I received just one item. Why?

    25. Garlic Shaker Creator on February 6

      @Peter Greene - We are so happy you love it! We did post an update today with some demonstration videos that will help you optimize your experience with the GarlicShaker.

    26. Garlic Shaker Creator on February 6

      @Peter Greene - You are correct. Wet garlic should never be used, not only in the Garlic Shaker, but for a variety of reasons. Wet garlic is not ready for use. The flavor is not matured, nor are the additional benefits garlic provides.

    27. Garlic Shaker Creator on February 6

      @Jen - The backer level you chose was a color of our choosing. We are sorry if you don't like the all black.

    28. Garlic Shaker Creator on February 6

      @Chris Lee - We sent the GarlicShaker out in batches. The fifth one may not have arrived yet. Let us know in a private message if you don't recieve it by the end of the week. WE will happily correct any error.

    29. Garlic Shaker Creator on February 6

      @David - We jsut posted a demo video on how to use your GarlicShaker in the updates. Also, if you didn't get the right number it was merely an error. We sent out Shaker in batches and the final one may not have arrived yet, We are happy to correct it if you send us a private message.

    30. David Allen on February 5

      BTW, also wondering if anyone got a color other than black?

      Has anyone other than Peter Green actually gotten the Garlic Shaker to work?

      I'm using garlic that I bought 3 weeks ago in anticipation and set it in a cool, dry spot waiting. If I squeeze the cloves they almost completely pop out of their skins. However, nothing happens in the Garlic Shaker.

    31. David Allen on February 5

      Wondering if other backers who backed this KS campaign way back in 2015 through the Backers Club got the correct number of Garlic Shakers? For example, through the Backers Club campaign, if you paid for three shakers, you were supposed to get a total of five shakers.

      I have to point out that you have to follow the instructions and make sure the garlic is dry! I always buy garlic well ahead of when I plan to use it. It sits on a wire rack to be sure there is plenty of air circulation. If you use wet garlic you are sure to be disappointed!

      Finally got mine! Not only does it look good, it actually works really great! I'm stoked because I use a lot of garlic. Great job! It was worth the wait!!!

    37. Garlic Shaker Creator on February 1

      @Gabriel - Yours was sent with the Early Birds. Yes, there was the early birds benefit of price and getting yours first. Early Birds went out in two shipments prior to the rest of the rewards. Let us know if you have not received yours in the next couple days and we will hand deliver one to you in San Diego.

      What was the Early Bird Support all about? I saw that you were sipping out the Early Bird Supporters first ( was this actually happening first or something that was just a marketing strategy to offer a better price without any actual "early bird" benefit? Thanks!

      Everyone seems to have received theirs. Did some get lost? How can I make sure mine is on the way? I did fill out the new survey when emailed to me immediately.
      I sure hope I end up getting one too since I was a backer. Fingers crossed. If you have any info or way to confirm this please let me know. Thanks!

    41. Garlic Shaker Creator on January 31

      @Rose - To clarify turn counter-clockwise to open. Turn clockwise to close.

    42. Garlic Shaker Creator on January 31

      @Rose - Because they are brand new the lids are a little stiff. Turn either lid, top or bottom, hard to the left. After a couple times it will be easier. To put it back on turn to the right.

      Yeah... I can’t get the lid off either😡

      ... ummm.... so how do we open it again?... lol

    45. Garlic Shaker Creator on January 30

      @Steve Smith: Great to hear it. Let us know if you have any questions.

    46. Garlic Shaker Creator on January 30

      @Lindsey Ann: The twists counter clockwise to come off. It’s an oval on a circle. Let us know if you are still having problems.

    47. Garlic Shaker Creator on January 30

      @Gary Delaney: Thanks Gary! We do too. We have not sent out the ebook yet. As soon as we ship all the Shakers first we will sent out the ebooks.

    48. Garlic Shaker Creator on January 30

      @John Diekmann: The Garlic has to be dry. Garlic you buy at the store isn’t actually fully dried and ready to use. Also, separate the cloves from the chaff. We have tested it hundreds of times. The only time it doesn’t work is when the Garlic isn’t dry enough or the user puts the entire head into the Shaker with the chaff. It must be shaken for 15-30 seconds.

      I finally got my garlic shaker after how many months? I still had high hopes when I received it yesterday. Tried my first garlic shaking today and ... it didn't work. The garlic cloves came out as they went in. I tried shaking it more and more and still nothing happened. I'll try it again with another head of garlic, but so far I'm very disappointed.
