In search of an UL grater!

Postby WaltzingMatilda » Sun 08 Oct, 2023 9:17 am

Hi all,
Anyone know of an extra light and small but functional grater that I could use at camp dinnertime? I'd like to grate a chunk of parmesan when I have pasta. Also, i'd like to grate a potato or a carrot to make a potato patty or carrot salad. I do a bit of kayak camping. Till now, I've grated the parmesan at home and wrapped it in cling wrap, but it does tend to melt back together a bit during the paddling. I like the idea of putting a potato in the dry bag and grating it at dinner time, to make a potato cake or something on my mini trangia. At home I use a 30cm long microplane and a box grater. I must admit I haven't even begun searching online yet, but thought I'd ask here first!

Have a great weekend,
Cheers,
WM.

Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful.

Mini box grater 36 grams, I think I bought mine at Minimax. We use it for grating parmesan when hiking. Has 4 different grating faces, so one could conceivably use it for grating other stuff, but I've never tried.
This makes me the first man to climb Mount Everest backwards, without oxygen...or even a jumper.

The mini-boxes are great and recommended to grate garlic too but i've stopped looking after being told they've become unavailable. That leaves a lucky find in an Op-shop.
Excellent for the thick, crevassed calluses on your heels as well, after soaking.

Great ideas, thanks! I also see that MSR makes a great looking alpine strainer / grater :) Apparently it's about 34g.
Thanks!
