Graters and Peelers
Let’s face it, grating cheese or peeling potatoes is hardly the most exciting of tasks. That said, is there anything more satisfying than using a brand new, super sharp grater to effortlessly glide through a block of cheese? Indeed, a quality cheese slicer or or pointed peeler can make the most mundane of tasks that little bit speedier and more enjoyable. Found out more below about our range of peelers, graters, slicers and spiralisers at Dunelm.
Cheese Graters & Slicers
A cheese grater is up there with pots and pans and a kettle in terms of kitchen essentials. At Dunelm, choose between hand graters, box graters and slicers. Handheld ones are typically better for grating a little Parmesan over your bolognese, while box graters are better for grating larger quantities of cheese. Finally our cheese slicer allows you to select the ideal thickness of your cheese, be it for a sandwich or cheese board.
Potato Peelers & Vegetable Slicers
Anyone who’s tried to peel a potato, or other vegetables, with a knife will know that a pointed potato peeler can be such a time saver! However, one of the biggest questions is whether to opt for a straight or y-shaped one.. The main difference tends to be that y-peelers can offer more control and are quick to use, whilst straight peelers can be better for manoeuvring around potato ends and smaller vegetables. Vegetable slicers, meanwhile, are particularly great when presentation is key to your cooking, producing neat and even slices of fruit and veg.
Julienning is a culinary knife technique that chefs are taught. In essence, it’s the art of cutting vegetables into long strips, similar to matchsticks. With a julienne peeler, you can easily cut vegetables in this style. These vegetable strips are ideal for scattering over salads or including in stir frys.
Garlic Peelers & Graters
The nature of smaller vegetables or spices like garlic and nutmeg can make them more difficult to peel, grate or slice. Our easy to use garlic peeler removes any hassle associated with doing this. Simply place a clove of garlic into the peeler and roll with your hand.
