Kyocera Advanced Ceramic Grater
Kyocera, your advanced ceramic graters had me at "Rinses off in a flash, no digging into grooves for lime peel as often happens with steel graters." As a kind and gentle fiance, I occasionally offer to clean up after She-Ra: Princess of Power cooks something. And holy hell do I hate dealing with her microplane. Whether it's ginger or cheese or lemon zest, those toothy little holes do not want to let the last bits go. Given that I often hear her banging it on a bowl or scraping at it with a knife, my sense is She-Ra's experience trying to get the goods out from between the grater's narrow channel to add to her recipes is the same.
Kyocera, which also sells other advanced ceramic knives and tools, originally made this style of grater for ginger, but it works just as well for garlic, daikon radish, chocolate, nutmeg, Parmesan or other hard cheese, lemons, limes, and oranges.
Available in 3-1/2" and 6-1/2" diameters, the shredders have a center circle dotted with advanced ceramic teeth. In addition to being super sharp, Kyocera calls them "advanced" for their strength and density - they rival diamond in hardness - and their long-lasting sharpness. The ceramic also won't even rust or stain, and is dishwasher-safe.
Kyocera also says their pieces make grating more comfortable and efficient, and the transfer of the grated food is just as easy as holding a handheld grater over your intended receptacle. A moat surrounding the raised bed of teeth catches any juices from what you're grating to avoid mess, and keep them available for adding to your dishes with the grated pulp. A silicone ring embedded in the bottom of the ceramic grater holds it in place during the action.
