Pain in the ass to clean, takes up valuable drawer space, and really saves very littel time at all... break the clove from the bulb, place under the flat part of your knife and crush. peel comes off easy... or if you need to do bulk just do that, toss them in a bowl and shake. the peels pop off there too. and you end up with garlic that has garlic juice in it rather than garlic juice and crushed garlic.

A garlic press is for turning the garlic into a paste. I don't think you can really turn it into a paste with the flat part of your knife. Alternatives include: macerating it as best as you can with a fork, a mortar and pestle or a microplane grater.

Your method works if you are just simply mincing the garlic. If you are simply looking to slice up garlic, the pressing method does not work.

Your peel removing methods while good, work better on fresher garlic rather than garlic that is slightly dated. A silicone sleeve does work wonders for any garlic - fresh or not.

Technically you can, if you use also mash and scrape with the knife with the addition of salt.

But some people just like the ease of using a press. If you put it in water when you're done using it, it's not hard to clean at all.

Not a classic caesar made like it was back in the day. Also a blender adds too much air in.

also back to your original point, when pressing garlic apparently you don't need to remove the peel which should make clean up easier too:

Maybe its a placebo effect, but it really seems crushed garlic with the press emits a stronger flavor than just finely sliced/flattened garlic. Maybe its more compressed or something.
