I was disappointed

I was disappointed with the Grate Plate when it come to grating ginger. It did not do as good a job as a rasper does.


Need a lot of garlic

9/27/2018 by Mary Ann

I purchased two, one for me and one as a gift. Unfortunate you can't just use one clove. One clove disappears in creaves and brush does not gather it together as seen in advertisement. Most recipes for my family size use one to two cloves only. I guess, you can mince a good amount and save with a little olive oil in your refrigerator for daily use.More > < Less


Disappointed in this product.

I was hoping the price would justify a great product, but not the case. It will become a spoon rest. This is the 2nd product I've bought for my husband as Christmas gifts, and both times struck out.More > < Less


Cute dish but doesn’t grate ginger

Tried to grate ginger with this and it didn’t not work. The rough edges just can’t grate ginger.


VERY disappointed

2/5/2019 by Pamela

I bought two of these, one for me and one for my sister who loves kitchen gadgets, but never sent the one to my sister after trying mine. I was VERY disappointed that I haven't been able to use it for anything other than grating garlic. I was hoping that I could use it for zesting, but the polished surface isn't rough enough to cut through the smooth lemon or lime skin. And I haven't had need to try to grate other things such as ginger root, so I am stuck with another (or 2!) kitchen gadget whose hype is much greater than its performance - not to mention its price!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.
