Crafted with Shun's legendary care and quality, this classic Japanese grater has ultra-sharp blades on both sides. Also known as a daikong grater, this tool is ideal for preparing vegetables, hard cheeses and garnishes. The grater efficiently processes the most delicate foods without bruising or tearing. Use the fine side for making fresh wasabi or horseradish, and for grinding spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. The coarse side is ideal for processing vegetables and hard cheeses, or making fresh sauces from apples or tomatoes. Super-sharp, offset blades cut in both directions for efficient grating. Raised sides channel ingredients into the work bowl. Oversize grating surface is easy to maneuver. Won't introduce air or heat during grinding, preserving the flavor and texture of ingredients. Includes a special bamboo cleaning spatula. Solid high-carbon steel blades. Includes a protective cover. Made in Japan.
