Japanese graters are a practical alternative to the popular microplane graters. These beautiful graters have more surface area than microplanes and are not perforated like typical graters as they are not meant to be used in the air. Japanese graters are designed with a triangular flat solid bottom to rest on the cutting board during use. Due to how nothing escapes the grater, ingredients are shredded much finer than typical graters and flavors stay concentrated. This sleek style also gives the user more stable control, while keeping ingredients from being dispersed mid-air then creating waste. Korin highly recommends purchasing the bamboo scrapper brushes for releasing drier ingredients such as citrus zest out of the grater teeth.
Korin offers Japanese graters in a variety of sizes and materials, such as stainless steel and copper. Stainless steel graters are recommended for infrequent users, and the stronger longer lasting copper material for professional usage. To ensure long term quality, please be sure to always handwash then dry before storing to avoid damages.
