Kitchen Gadgets Grate to Plate - Review

Okay this may not be the fanciest looking grater you've ever seen - but it does the job of grating and slicing really well.  

It comes with three different steel blades that are easy to change.  Just slide one out and slide another in.  

The suction feet grip to virtually any work surface including wood making it non slip and safe to use.  The feet then fold neatly underneath for storage after use so it won't take up much room in your cupboard.  
The Grate to Plate is also easy to clean and the blades are dishwasher safe.
The body is made from hard plastic and can only be cleaned in hot soapy water.

Now to put the Grate to Plate to the test!
First I thought I'd grate some Parmesan as it's such a hard cheese. 
Put a bowl or small plate underneath and away you go.

In just a few effortless turns of the handle I had a bowlful of nicely grated Parmesan!

What about potato?  Just change the blade to the slicing one and pop your potato in.

Hold down the clamp - turn the handle and away you go.

The potato slices weren't the neatest of slices but they sliced nice and thinly and it was so easy to do. Washing up took a minute in some nice hot soapy water so there's no need to use a dishwasher if you don't have one.

Love the idea that the food goes straight onto a plate or bowl - a large dinner plate wont quite fit underneath, but a slightly smaller plate is fine.  Of course it can grate fruit and other vegetables too.

All in all I'd say it's worth every penny as it does what it says and is so easy and safe to use. 
The Judge Grate to Plate retails around £13.20 and is available from all good cookery stores.  For more information pop over to www.judgecookware.co.uk 
Thank you to Pam for sending me this to review.


  1. Would this work well with carrots, Jan? I love making soup with grated carrots, but hate using a hand blender!
