Will be as good as new: how to sharpen a grater at home

A grater can be made sharp again with a regular knife and cup

Working with a dull grater is a real disaster as you have to make much more effort. It's also quite dangerous as the food can easily slip off the blunt blade and cause injury. That is why you need to make sure that this kitchen tool remains sharp.

Moreover, you can sharpen an object at home without special tools. OBOZ.UA tells you how to do it step by step.

To sharpen a grater, you will need a knife with a short blade and a ceramic cup. You will need to turn the cup upside down and use the rough surface on its edges. It will work like a grindstone in this case.

To begin with, run a knife along the inside of each blade hole in the working surface of the grater: this will provide a liner for the cutters and align them. Then rub all the blades with the outer side against the rough edge of the bottom of the cup. This will sharpen the cutting edge. Be careful not to bend the blades or damage them. It is better to make more light movements.

Lastly, you need to wash the sharpener properly as during the sharpening process, it becomes covered with small particles of metal and ceramic. It is better to rinse it under running water and then wipe the item dry. Immediately after that, the device will be ready for use again.
