Irogami is a grater shaped like a piece of paper with a rolled-up corner that .ts on the edge of the hand. It revolutionizes grating as if ingredients are grated directly with the palm. Users can easily grate ingredients such as ginger, cheese, and cinnamon, sprinkling them on top of various meals. Compact, simple, and colorful, this is a completely new hand-.tting grater made by a slim aluminum plate.
(Description / KASAHARA Shinji) Launch Year / 2020


A grater is a very simple cooking instrument. However, most graters have the grating part and hand-held part apart, requiring forces for both grating and holding. This irogami is designed to be held on the palm. It is as if the palm is grating the ingredient, reducing the effort to hold the instrument. The simple square shape with a bent corner is intended to be used on the dining table. With its color variation, it is already like a piece of tableware.
