Presenting Pinch, an innovative grater with built-in collection to prevent spills by Böttcher Henssler Kayser for Normann Copenhagen.
A sharp grating surface makes Pinch perfect for finely grating ingredients. With its soft, rounded curves it is both practical and aesthetically pleasing, a simple everyday pleasure.
The design concept is based on two parts combined in an ergonomic product – a stainless steel grater and a collection pan. The pan is made of a flat piece of plastic that gets its three-dimensional shape by clamping it underneath the grater.
Böttcher Henssler Kayser explains, ”The idea arose one day when we were having pasta in the studio. After lunch there was cheese all over the table. We realized that this was a general problem with graters. To solve the problem, we designed Pinch - a simple and functional grater”.
The fine grater efficiently grates various cheeses but can also be used on other types of ingredients such as nutmeg, chocolate, lemon, etc. The two parts can be taken apart easily and put in the dishwasher.
