Ceramic Garlic/ Ginger Graters

Before the holidays, I started making ginger/ garlic graters. A friend picked one up at a sale; I used it and fell in love.... so I made my own! 

I use mine almost daily....

It's great for ginger, garlic, turmeric, anything small of somewhat soft texture that's gratable...Is that a word?
I can hold it in my hand over a pot and grate right in, and then if it's going into liquid, swish every last bit into the pot, since it's ceramic, it's very durable.

I had several designs, but either sold or gifted most of them around the holidays. 
Will have more in stock in a few weeks, but for now just have these two left.

I love being able to make my own garlic and ginger paste fresh. It's a bit coarser than the store bought paste, but added to food, I don't really notice.

Have you ever used one of these type graters? What was your favorite thing about them?

  1. What an interesting idea!! I've never run across anything like it before but the idea appeals.
