Alessi Boga Ginger Grater
Inspired by a trip to the East, Valerio Sommella designed “Boga”, a ginger grater. The namesake fish, with its tapered body and large ‘bug’ eyes, is the inspiration for this simple yet concurrently functionally sophisticated object.
Enigmatic and appealing, “Boga” accommodates the rise in the use of herbs and spices: it is the perfect item of tableware and a useful tool to keep handy in the kitchen.
Characteristics / Suggested use. Fitted with hard-wearing, sharp stainless steel grater teeth.Ideal for grating ginger roots, even the stringy kind. Practical and simple to use thanks to its evocative shape: the part that resembles the fish tail provides a convenient handle for your hand, while the head is slightly concave to collect and pour the grated contents. Light-weight and compact in size, it is easy to handle.
Perfect in the kitchen, but also suitable for use directly at the table, thanks to its sophisticated and fun design. Easy to clean, rinse under running water or pop into the dishwasher making sure you dry it thoroughly afterwards
