Care of your product:
These little plates are dishwasher safe, however, the accompanying tools (brush & peeler), are more delicate and should be hand washed in warm water and soap. We often find it easiest to wash the plate using the brush, cleaning both at the same time.
Please note that some crazing of the glazing may occur over time. These are not cracks, they simply add to the character of the little plate and in no way affect its use.
Use of Peeler (optional) :
Make sure tube is dry, insert whole clove and roll between palms (not fingers) with moderate pressure.
Use of Plate:
For Wet Products: Remember to moisten the surface of the grater with water (or olive oil ). All products, as much as possible: tip down, root up!
For Garlic: Hold the clove of garlic between your thumb and index finger . Grate with just a little bit pressure on the garlic over the bottom of the dish. It makes no difference if you use circular movements or back and forth. The skin will split sideways, and can be lifted off at the end before sweeping the garlic puree off the plate using the brush
For Ginger: Hold the root of the ginger at an angle and grate it by using back and forth movements
For Chilli: Round and round nice and lightly, sliding your fingers back as you go.
For Zesting: Put the lemon, lime or orange in the freezer for two hours and the skin is hard and easy to grate.
For Cleanup: Always rinse the grater under cold running water before you either wash it by hand or put it into the dishwasher. You can run a fork through the bristles of the brush in the bowl to help clear them.
The grater works for DRY (use dry) products: Chocolate (refrigerate) , Nutmeg, Nuts, Parmesan.
