Easy and pretty

Up until now, I've been using a little nutmeg grater to grate my ginger for my morning ginger-lemon-cayenne drink. The Grate Plate makes the job so much easier! I can grate the ginger more finely and save my nails and fingertips while doing it. I got the teal color and it's very pretty.More > < Less


Great little grater!

I was a little skeptical but I love pottery and this was so cute decided to take a chance. It did a good job of grating garlic. That's all I've tried so far but don't know why it wouldn't work just as well for other things. And the little brush that comes with it is a real plus. Highly recommend!More > < Less

I purchased 2 of these grating plates. One for me and one for my son. They're really cute but I wish they were a little larger. I also like the garlic tube that came with it.More > < Less


Great Item to have around

Works as advertised, I still don't care for grating a hard cheese, but this tool makes it go faster and it is much less messy, all of the cheese goes uno bowl not all over my countertop.More > < Less

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.
