Here is the grater trio:
1. "Potato Grater"
That is the key essential grater for such traditional dishes as potato zeppelins (Cepelinai), potato casserole (Kugelis) and potato pancakes (Bulviniai blynai). It is the fine prickly side of your box grater. It is also the one requiring the most elbow grease (try grating 6 pounds of potatoes with it :)). That is why 99% of Lithuanian households have an electric potato grater - an instrument specialized just for this task. More about it in my next post.
