My two favorite ways to chop and grate ginger

My favorite way to chop ginger is in a food processor or a mini-processor.  If I am just chopping medium amounts of ginger, and don't want a very fine grate, I use a Cuisinart Mini Prep, which is surprisingly affordable.  Depending on the model you buy, they run $30-$40. If I am grating a small amount of ginger, and want a very fine grate, I use a microplane.
