Grating Bucket

Do you find grating monotonous? 

This stainless steel grating bucket from Eva Solo reverses the traditional grater by having the grated food –  vegetable, chocolate or cheese – collect in the middle of the bucket. 

Our favourite part about this product is that it keeps the mess in one place.

If, like us, you find yourself adding garlic to your dishes more often than not, you’ll know the difficulty and tediousness of chopping up cloves of garlic. 

But fret no more, those days are gone. 

Simply peel away the skin on your garlic clove and down the garlic masher will come. It’s quick, easy and perfect for recipes that don’t rely on minced garlic.
