Specialty Graters for Perfect Fresh Wasabi

There are two essential tips to getting the best possible experience from fresh wasabi paste: it has to be made fresh, and it must be grated to just the right texture.

The importance of correct grating can’t be overstated.  The prized flavour and incredible aroma of wasabi is created by ‘tearing apart’ the individual wasabi cells and mixing the ingredients within. This sets off a chemical reaction and after giving the paste a few moments to rest and develop its flavour, WOW!  

To achieve just the right texture, a very fine

grater is needed.  Utensils such as cheese or Nutmeg graters just don’t do the job properly as they are too coarse and ‘slice’ rather than ‘grind and mix’.

Typically the Japanese use specialty graters such as a Samegawa or Oroshigane as these graters ensure the wasabi is prepared to a perfect smooth paste. When grating, the wasabi is held at 45degrees to the surface and grated in a circular motion as this achieves a good balance of grinding and mixing.

To help you enjoy your fresh wasabi and get just the right texture, we offer traditional handmade copper Oroshigane graters from Japan.
