  • NATURAL HOME STAINLESS STEEL 12-INCH BOX GRATER W/ BAMBOO

    With its handsome, natural bamboo accents and its durable stainless steel grating surfaces, this 12-inch box grater is the perfect addition to any kitchen.

    Tough, durable and lightweight, bamboo is a natural in the kitchen. One of nature's most sustainable resources, bamboo is stronger than oak and reaches maturity in just four years — without pesticides. Bamboo's density makes it naturally water-resistant, which inhibits germs and bacteria. It won't scratch your pans like metal and doesn't absorb moisture like conventional wood.

    Though used like timber, bamboo is a grass that self-propagates as it spreads underground via a network of rhizomes. A white oak tree takes 120 years to grow to maturity; bamboo takes three-and-a-half to seven years. This self-regenerating plant grows without pesticides and needs very little water; some species grow as much as 3 feet a day. Because of its fast growth rate, bamboo sequesters carbon dioxide at faster rates than hardwood trees — another bonus for the environment.

    Stainless steel does not leach chemicals. The stainless steel used is 93 percent recycled. The grade of the stainless steel used is 18.8.

    The editors at Natural Home & Garden have selected this and other stainless steel and bamboo cooking utensils because they are durable, safe and environmentally-friendly.

    Care instructions: Hand wash only.
    Manufactured in China.
