Awesome product


Life changer! I love the Grate Plate. I use it mainly for garlic and ginger and it works great. Plus, the handmade ceramic is really beautiful.


My favorite kitchen tool!


This little grater is not only beautiful and well designed, but it works great!! I use it mostly for garlic and it's a game-changer when it comes to ginger! I followed the video tutorials and always rinse my plate through the sink to get it just a tad bit wet before I use it - this ensures nothing gets stuck in the crevices and the brush easily pushes everything off the plate. The size of the plate fits perfectly in my hand and looks great on my kitchen counter - it's my go-to holiday gift!More > < Less


This is genius!


First off- WOW. Not only functional, but beautifully crafted. I love to leave mine out as a spoon rest as it is so pretty on the kitchen counter. It grated my garlic and ginger so easily, I will never go back to a garlic press or microplane that occasionally gets some finger bits in my food ;). Where has The Grate Plate been all my life? HIGHLY recommended for any foodie. Will definitely buy plenty more for gifts. If I could give this 10 Grommet’s I would. Thank you, The Grommet, for introducing me to such a life changing kitchen tool.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.
