It's a type of hand-operated grater. Check out this one at Amazon.com.

There's a grater. There's also a food mill.

I just googled it. Look at all the things Mouli makes!

Mouli is short for Moulinex, which is a French manufacturer of all types of small kitchen appliances and gadgets.

Moulinex is a different company altogether. Mouli is an Italian manufacturer of small kitchen appliances.

The link you posted doesn't show anything relevant.

The "Mouli Grater" that Katie posted is made by Moulinex. They make food mills and other stuff, too. Here is their site

I have often heard people call that type of grater a Mouli grater.

Thanks all. Now I'm off to look for some Mouli gadgets to buy. "Makes note to self. I think I belong in that other thread about being addicted to kitchen tools"

There was a food mill (and potato ricer) that was a popular
item in many antique malls.. and probably still is.
Never figured out if they were just that common, or if an old
warehouse of them got discovered.

Turns out my Mom had both in the back, dusty cobwebbed caverns
of her kitchen cabinets. I actually use the food mill occasionally.
The tater ricer was cheap and fell apart... maybe it was old and fell
apart, LOL!

Thanks for the link. I just went there, man am I in heaven. My boyfriend thinks I've lost my mind.
