Description:
This professional-grade paddle grater is ideal for bulb and root vegetables such as onions, garlic and wasabi as well as citrus rinds. Using a technique dating back to the Edo period, each tooth is hand-carved out and pointed upward using a tagane and iron hammer resulting in a sharper, finer grate that tends to retain more moisture and flavor than your typical grater.

Measurements:
7.5" x 4"

History: 
Originating in the Edo period, the art of making copper graters has been passed down for generations. Established in 1928, Ooya Seisakusho specializes in the manufacturing of these copper graters. Keeping with tradition, one of Ooya’s current products has the same form and features as a grater featured in the Wakan Sansai Zue, an Edo-period encyclopedia published in 1712.

 

Materials:
Copper and tin

Variation: 
Because these graters are handmade, the shape and length of each tooth will vary.

Care Instructions:
Not dishwasher safe. Hand-wash and dry well after each use. If food is stuck in the grater’s teeth, try a toothbrush for effective removal. Do not use bleach, a harsh cleanser or steel wool. Keep away from heat.
