Oroshigane metal grater - medium


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 chillies and is large enough for any citrus fruit. It is beautifully packaged with a rather stylish black and white aesthetic. This is the medium sized version, referred to on the packet as the "big mini".

Saunders says:

"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."
