I'm recommending this product to friends. I was using a microplaner to grate ginger before, but this product grates the ginger much faster and easier. In thirty seconds I had 2T of ginger, whereas it took much longer with the planer. Excellent!
A wanted a nutmeg grater but I was nervous about the super sharp micrograters and I've had bad luck with grinders. A friend recommended this and said it would even work for nutmeg. Well, the price was right - so I got it. Honestly, it does grate nutmeg - and rather quickly with just a moderate pressure. I don't think I would want to grate a whole jar of nutmeg. But for making drinks or cakes it does the trick.
I bought this for my husband as a gift since he is always cooking with ginger and he has just be ecstatic about it. It's so much better than our previous methods of zesting/shredding/chopping and is a wonderful tool if you're using a lot of ginger in your kitchen.
