The flavor and heat of fresh wasabi is stored deep at the cellular level of the rhizome (or root). In order to unlock the bright, sinus-stimulating spice, the cell walls of the root must be broken, releasing the flavor and heat. This is done by grating the wasabi -- and the finer the grate, the more cell walls are broken, and the more and better heat and flavor. This professional grade stainless steel wasabi grater creates an effortlessly luxurious wasabi cream, and draws the maximum flavor out of this elusive condiment.
Can also be used for ginger, garlic, horseradish, and more!
