Uni-tasker ginger grater?
Just because it's called a ginger grater doesn't mean you can't use it on other things like Andy mentioned.
I have a "cherry pitter" I use a lot, but not once on cherries

Don't let a name disuade you.

Yes, you can. I've done it often.

That's exactly why I bought mine. Sometimes Kalamatas are a bit skinny, but my Oxo cherry pitter still does the job. DW safe, too

Never thought of this, probably because I never before had access to nice bulk olives. Now I'm wondering if my never used cherry pitter is lurking in my storage unit, or if it got left behind

Ginger grater it is. I was thinking a different kind of nutmeg grater, which it would also work for. bookofjoe: Wasabi and Ginger Grater

To grate ginger, horseradish, etc, or to remove cherry or olive pits?
