I still find myself smashing the cloves with the broad-side of a large knife, then using as is or dicing it.

I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

According to Saveur [circa 2011] All you need for bulk peeling is:

• 2 deep bowls of equal size, made of a hard material like metal or Pyrex
• A dry (not fresh) head of garlic

How it works

Smash the head of garlic with the heel of your hand. Sweep the cloves into one bowl, and invert the second bowl over the top of the first bowl. Hold the bowls together where the rims meet and shake the dickens out of it for 10-20 seconds, until the garlic cloves have been released from their skins.

For small cloves, not a head of garlic, it's easier to smash it flat though.

I cut off the base and then whack each clove with a heavy knife. I usually run the cloves under water to make sure that all of the skin is off. Then I whack them again for good measure and dice.

If you are afraid of using a knife (hmmm) maybe you need a good flat rock in your kitchen for whacking purposes.

I have the flat one that you place the garlic on and roll around the garlic. It works very nicely, and no cut fingers...

Simply form a tube shape, with the garlic in the middle, and roll it on your counter surface. It loosens the skin, and the skin then comes right off...

I'm going to have to try that! Peeling garlic is a pain.

This is a good method if you want to peel a load of garlic.

It works better if you slice off the base and break the cloves up. Then put them in some lidded container (I use a saucepan with a lid) and then shake the buggins out of it. Eventually all the skins will come off.

I know this is an older topic, but I thought I'd share my method. I'm fairly accident-prone and every time I use the knife method I worry about cutting myself (I've even sliced my hand open with a butter knife!) so I came up with a method that is a lot less risky and actually seems to work a little better.

I take a rice "paddle" (the flat short-handled spoon used with rice cookers etc)--preferably a wooden or bamboo one (for the heft) and lay it front side up with the garlic underneath. I then give it a heavy whack with the base of my hand and it works like a charm! Smashes the garlic enough to devein (if needed) and the peel comes off a treat.

Yes. Put the clove on your cutting board. Lay the flat of your chef's knife on it and give it a good whack with your fist. The skin will split and you can remove it easily.
