Great plate!


Love this grate plate. Small diminutive plate and perfect size.




As I grate, it's already in a dish. I don't have to remove it from a grater, then place it on a dish, in a bowl. I can scoop up as much as I need and store the rest if not needed. Easy to clean.More > < Less


Oh heavenly kitchen toy!


I bought this online and wasn’t sure it would be ok....well indeed it was ok and so much more! I’ve never found a tool for grating garlic and ginger and more which I liked. I have struggled with awkward presses, with shredded knuckles and generally avoided this activity. No more! I am a grating crazy lady! I love this system so much I have purchased others for my family! It works so well, I’ve grated multiple things with happy, injured free knuckles and finely textured results. I love the brush which is also a very handy tool for cleaning. Washes well with no residue and I am SO happy!More > < Less


Works like a charm!


I bought this as a gift for my daughter. She reported to me that she loves it! She didn't really give me any details, and I haven't seen it in action, but it seems to have pleased her.More > < Less




These made the best gifts for those who have all the kitchen gadgets. They all loved it.

About The Grate Plate

Ceramic Grater

Deborah and Hillary Murphy spent a year fine-tuning their ceramic graters before bringing them to local farmers markets to see how folks would respond. Their beautifully handcrafted dishes were such a hit that The Grate Plate has grown and found fans beyond the Murphys' home base of Portland, Oregon.

Portland is where the mother-daughter team makes each brightly hued ceramic plate dotted with unique graters that won’t wear down over time and are gentler than metal. (Your fingertips will thank you.) Made with garlic in mind, The Grate Plate does the grating job for hard cheeses, ginger, nutmeg, peppers, and it can even zest citrus. We like the idea of using one to prep and serve a quick garlic dipping oil for bread.

The presentation-worthy plate combines functionality and a polished finish, which also makes it a perfect gift for hosts, home cooks, or anyone who appreciates beautifully made and useful things.
