I was given this grater as a gift, and I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful job it does on ginger. I have arthritis in my hands and wrists and had found it increasingly difficult to grate ginger for Soboro, one of our favorite recipes. With this grater I need to use very little pressure and I get spectacular results. It cuts the amount of time down to a quarter of the time it took when I was using a microplane grater, and as an added bonus I found the juice clearer, with less of the "milky" quality I was getting before. It's a dream to clean, too. It's dishwasher safe, but just a quick rinse under running water got rid of all the remaining fibers. I cannot rate this grater highly enough. I'd give it 10 stars if I could. I can't wait to try grating an onion to add to guacamole...!
