06.For people with disability
An occupational therapist from the Independent Living Centre (NSW) assessed the graters for use by people with a hand weakness, vision problem or cognitive impairment.
All graters she recommended are in the What to buy list and profiled here.
Other relevant characteristics are highlighted below.
- Of the hard cheese graters, the top-scoring BODUM Parma Cheese Grater can be stabilised with a clamp and is ideal for one-handed use.
- The OXO GOOD GRIPS Multi Grater is the all-purpose box grater of choice because it can be adapted to different angles for better action or hooked over a bowl.
- Of the flat graters, the ZYLISS Contour Grater is the most suitable, but the three MICROPLANE graters used with their safety guard can also be recommended because they require little hand pressure.
- Rotary graters are generally less suitable for some people because they require strength in both hands.
