✔︎ No import fees & duties - worldwide
Oroshigane (wasabi grater) is a traditional Japanese kitchen tool designed for grating wasabi, ginger, garlic, and other roots. It is most commonly found in sushi restaurants and bars, where chefs use it for making wasabi paste. This versatile tool brings a touch of Japanese tradition to any kitchen, making it a delightful addition for those seeking an authentic culinary experience!
Oroshigane is made from high-quality skate skin, securely attached to a natural cedar wooden board. This grater effortlessly transforms ingredients into a fine, creamy texture, enhancing their sharp and aromatic flavor.
USAGE AND CARE:
To use an oroshigane, you would typically hold the tool in one hand and the wasabi root in the other. Rub the wasabi root against the teeth of the oroshigane using a circular motion or back-and-forth motion. As you grate, the wasabi root will break down, releasing its pungent flavors.
To ensure its long lifespan, wash the grater with water after each use and dry it in the shade. Avoid using it when it's still damp from the previous use to prevent the skin from peeling. Don't soak the grater in hot water or expose it to direct sunlight. Excessive moisture can cause deformation and breakage. Occasionally, allow the grater to rest and dry in the shade.
