“Irogami: piece of grater” is a compact grater that fits in the palm of the user’s hand with a new style never seen before.
The mini grater is made from a single aluminum plate.
The user can grate the food with a new feeling as if he grated directly with the palm of his hand.
Rather than grate a large amount of food at one time, the user can grate ginger, garlic, cheese, etc. on the dish and sprinkle it, or use it easily in various scenes.
This product is produced by a very simple manufacturing method and has high practicality.
This product sells 10 colorful colors with aluminum coloring technology.
It’s ideal for portion control when only small amounts are required.
The kitchenware produced by the traditional craftsmanship of this city is widely used all over the world.
