Copper Oroshigane Grater
The oroshigane grater, also known as oroshiki, is widely used in Japanese cooking and is a staple in professional kitchens. Unlike the perforated metal of western graters, the teeth of Japanese graters are cut and raised by hand with expert precision using a hammer and chisel. They grate more finely than typical western graters and makes short work of garlic, horseradish, daikon radish, wasabi, lemongrass, ginger, nutmeg or chillies. This design allows you to also grate fruit and vegetables to a paste.
Made in Osaka from tin-plated copper. As this grater is handmade from metal there may be slight marks, this is to be expected and is part of the unique nature of the piece. Hand-wash only. Size 11 cm long including handle.
