At ANCKERAMIC, quality and customer satisfaction have always been our top priority.  

The origin of ceramic rubbing

The history of the ceramic grater begins in Japan. As early as 1596, wasabi roots were being rubbed there with stone garters, shark skin rubbing and metal rubbing. The meshes were large and were usually used exclusively in restaurants and places where wasabi was made.

A brief history of the grater

In the 1970s, the production of round ceramic graters began for the first time - the Spanish grater. Since these were fired below 1100 ° C, they were not very strong. Ceramico Finland started making square ceramic graters in 2009. The reason was simply the lack of good ceramic graters in Europe.  

The design, as it is used to this day, comes from the famous Finnish ceramic designer Merja Tammi.  

Our background

Behind the idea of making good and aesthetic graters is Leon Ancker, who has been a passionate cook with a wide variety of cooking utensils for more than 35 years. Today the graters are made by Minna Sola, whose family has been making ceramic products and ceramic stoves since 1952.


Leon's vision was to develop a high-quality product with the friction plate that would impress with its effectiveness and last a lifetime.  That's why we burn the ceramic grater at 1240 ° C  in the oven, at a much higher temperature than most other manufacturers use.
