Wow! What a wonderful grater and company! I could not imagine what would result, when putting a single sheet of parchment over a grater. Amazingly, the thin grating blades poke through and hold the parchment in place. I used a light, circular motion for both ginger and garlic. Each transformed into a creamy consistency sitting on top of the parchment. It was easy, and relatively fast.
Midori translated the information on the packaging from Japanese to English. I am so appreciative! I now look forward to using the Oroshgane with horseradish, carrots, tomatoes and apples!
This grater can do a very fine grate. Midori suggested that I cover the grater with parchment paper (baking paper) then press whatever I am grating down on the paper and rub back and forth . What a great idea. It was easy to collect the ginger and so easy to clean up. Thank you Midori. Great product.
