This easy to use garlic grater from Microplane quickly transfers garlic into uniform strands. Unlike a garlic press, it produces finely textured garlic pieces. Grated garlic retains its natural oils for optimum flavor. The garlic mincer has a large capacity chamber that is big enough for 2 or 3 peeled cloves. A scraper for removing garlic from the grating blade and container is included. The garlic grater is dishwasher safe and features a stainless steel blade that was made in the United States.
