The oroshigane grater, also known as oroshiki, is widely used in Japanese cooking and is a staple in professional kitchens. It grates more finely than typical western graters and is able to reduce even hard fruit and vegetables to a fine material. The grater makes short work of garlic, ginger or daikon and is a mean zester. It is beautifully packaged with a rather stylish black and white aesthetic. They come in a plethora of sizes to suit your oroshi needs.
"The oroshigane grater differs from its western counterpart in that it produces a much finer end product. They are generally used for wasabi and ginger but I find they work equally as well with garlic and horseradish root. They don’t have perforations at the back so the ingredients are held at the front to be scraped off."
