Simpler isn’t always better!

It was just a few days ago that I was in the midst of adding parmesan to my homemade pasta when I started pondering the old-fashioned grater that I was using. I was thinking, “this thing is so simple, yet so uncomfortable and hard to clean.” I wondered if it could be made better by simplifying it further. Needless to say, I never came up with a solution. BUT, looking at the Satellite Grater here, I now realize the answer wasn’t to simplify, it was to enhance! Check it out!

The design has the same grating options (slicing, zesting, shredding) but features arms that expand to clip onto dishware with its multiple teeth on the underside. In its collapsed form it saves more space, and it’s also waaaaaay easier to clean! Needs it!

Designer: Hakan Gürsu

    Where can I buy this? I think this would fit perfect in my kitchen. Does anyone has any info on this?

    You made a simple and timeless design into a less sustainable, more expensive and something that is even harder to clean(assuming you have the standard grater everybody has consisting of a bent piece of metal which is welted together). I think you would need a bigger surface of metal, to make the arm move more dynamic instead of the masturbation motion this design affords. But NICE rendering skills and 😉 maybe you should go talk to some cheffs about this? i always find it very satisfying talking about products with people who actually used said product everyday or at least often 🙂
