I know of this grater via German cooking, but it may NOT be specific to Germany. Regardless, I am trying to determine the name of this kind of grater so I can purchase one. The grater is actually raised up on the side you rub the potato on, exactly like I have nutmeg graters.

Here are some pictures.

Can anyone tell me the name of tis grater? Bonus if you can point me to a website that sells them.


  • They used to refer to this style of grater as a 'rasp', but these days when you search for that, you also find the 'microplane' type graters.

Curved grater - there ya go.


Kartoffelreibe Is the German name for it I just try to find one to buy but they on ebay and the shipping is unexplainable high, for the Kartoffelreibe about 10 they charge 80 for shipping. Would settle for a used one.
