Designed for grating garlic and ginger (and Tootsie Pops as well for the adventurous), the handy Mr. Owl is an invaluable piece of kitchen gear for the wise.

Nub-friendly grating

Microplane 3-Piece Grater Set

Cheese nubs (and other small items) can be treacherous to grate. They are hard to get a grip on, and when you do wrangle them in, they eventually get too worn down to grasp. The Microplane 3-Piece Grater Set makes it easy to work with such items. The set includes an Extra Coarse Grater and a Medium Ribbon Grater, while the slider attachment saves fingers from all those hard-to-control items. If not for your fingers, perhaps for those that belong to whom you love; it is officially gift season after all. And all this time you thought it was the day after Thanksgiving.

Retrosink: Potato pancakes with an old-timey grater

vintage grater

Lately I’ve had potatoes on the brain. A recent trip to Barney Greengrass led to some delicious latkes (which always has a ripple effect), while in San Francisco I just discovered a recipe book that called for potato pancakes to be made with Swiss and cream cheese. Sacrilege? Maybe. But delicious too. The amazing potato goes well in so many recipes; you can’t really go wrong. So in honor of this potato obsession, today I find it necessary to show off a potato-related kitchen gadget. Since we are talking about the Old Country (take your pick), it seemed appropriate for a Retrosink post. Hence we have the Mouli Parsmint “Creation Moulin-Lecumes” grater.
