    Edgeware Graters are Great

    It doesn’t mat­ter if you con­sid­er your­self a sea­soned chef, a cook­ing en­thu­si­ast, or just a ca­su­al at home cook, it does not hurt to have a good grater among your kitchen uten­sils. Edge­ware is the per­fect place to start when look­ing for a medi­um qual­i­ty in­ex­pen­sive grater.

    Our team here at Tru­lyNet had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to ex­per­i­ment with three of Edge­ware’s graters and one of their zesters (which is a grater that pro­duces small­er strips). The novice cook might not be aware that there are so many dif­fer­ent types of graters avail­able and for what rea­sons (I cer­tain­ly had no idea), but with ex­pe­ri­ence one can see why cer­tain graters are used for dif­fer­ent jobs.

    Each of the Edge­ware graters and zester in­cludes V-shaped teeth, a pro­tec­tive cov­er, and a non-stick coat­ing for a smoother, pret­ti­er, and eas­i­er grat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. All of the graters al­so come in a fun ar­ray of whim­si­cal col­ors: Char­coal, Fine Yel­low, Coarse Blue and Ex­tra Coarse Or­ange. This means you can eas­i­ly have them match the rest of your kitchen decor. The main dif­fer­ence be­tween the V-etched Ex­tra Coarse Grater ($16.99), the V-etched Coarse Grater ($16.99), and the V-etched Fine Grater ($16.99) is the size of the teeth it comes with, largest to small­est re­spec­tive­ly. Ob­vi­ous­ly the larg­er the blades the larg­er the slices, which can be good for slic­ing cu­cum­bers or car­rots, while the small­er teeth are bet­ter for grat­ing Parme­san. The V-etched Bet­ter Zester ($14.99) has even small­er teeth than the V-etched Fine Grater and can be pur­chased in char­coal or lime green.

    The on­ly com­plaint we have about the graters and zester is that they are all hand held. If one is in the pas­sion of grat­ing or zest­ing (I re­al­ly just like say­ing that word) for too long, it can be­come tir­ing to hold the grater/zester up.

    And now, the ques­tion we all have been wait­ing for: “Do I re­al­ly need to own four graters??” Prob­a­bly not, frankly- the av­er­age home cook will find it un­like­ly to need more than one, un­less cit­rus zest is some­thing you reg­u­lar­ly need. I rec­om­mend pick­ing one in the mid­dle.  My per­son­al fa­vorite is the V-etched Coarse Grater.
