A cheese grater is a tool that is used to grate or shred cheese. It is a handheld tool that consists of a handle and a grating surface. The grating surface is usually made of metal, but can also be made of plastic.
The cheese grater is used to grate or shred cheese into small pieces. It is a convenient tool that can be used to prepare cheese for cooking or for eating.
The Zyliss Classic Cheese Grater is designed to grate more cheese in less time, while being more comfortable to use. It’s even certified for restaurant use, making it one of the most trusted and reliable graters available.
The Zyliss Classic Rotary Cheese Grater includes a fine drum, perfect for grating hard cheeses like Parmesan, chocolate, nuts and more. The drum and handle separate easy for quick cleaning.
Purchased this grater about 4 months ago. We use it for good quality Parmesan cheese, for use both on the finished pasta, and adding into sauces and recipes. The unit is sturdily built, and both my wife and I find it comfortable to hold and crank.
It produces finely shredded Parmesan, which we prefer on our pasta, and to cook with. If you want a coarse or medium texture, this isn’t the grater you want. For the cost, I think the product is of higher quality and sturdiness than I expected.
We usually store it in the refrigerator loaded with some cheese, in a zip top bag in the refrigerator, but have washed it in the top rack of the dishwasher at least half a dozen times, with great results.
I would suggest this grater to friends and relatives.
This grater is easy to use, and with a harder cheese (Parmigiano-Reggiano is why we bought it) the cheese comes out in a soft, beautiful, almost powdery form. And it’s able to be disassembled for cleaning.
This is the “restaurant quality” grater from Zeiss. There are two types, and both are priced similarly. It’s a quality product, perfect for use in our home. There won’t be any turning back to regular, grocery store, pre-grated Parmigiano.
It’s too easy now to grind “the perfect food”, and the taste is truly the difference.
This is the perfect tool which allows for grating a small amount of parmesan (or any other hard cheese) without accidentally slicing a finger or having the flakes fly everywhere. After using the planer and box graters, it’s so nice to have the control this grater allows.
The box grater keeps the grated cheese within a confined area, but is hard to get clean. Using the dishwasher often left small microscopic smears in some areas. The single-plane grater is easier to wash, but not good for small chunks of cheese.
Moreover, the plane-grater can leave a bit of a mess for grating over a dish. The parts easily come apart for cleaning.
The stylish Navetta Cheese Grater was created by designers Daniels and Erdwiens for the design company, Blomus. Traditionally, the centrepieces in most kitchens have been fridges, tables, cookers and worktops.
The rest of the kitchen essentials usually come in drab designs that only serve their functional purpose. The Navetta Cheese Grater goes against the norm by pioneering the start of efficient design in small kitchen accessories.
The highly stylish cheese grater serves its functional purpose as it does its decorative one. It is a high-quality stylistic centre that combines style and efficiency in an elegant ergonomic design. One of the immediately apparent features of the Navetta Cheese Grater is its dynamic organic form.
It has a harmoniously rounded collecting body and rubbing surface which allows the user to effortlessly grate and collect cheese. The grater’s collecting body is large enough to hold cheese for several people.
Quality is not compromised in the construction of this stylish cheese grater, which is made of polished stainless steel and resistant plastic for durability and easy cleaning. Measuring 19. 5 x 10. 0 x 7.
0 cm, this cheese grater makes a stunning accent piece for your kitchen.
Designed by Maestro Richard Sapper, who in his own home was in charge of grating cheese for the whole family. “Todo” has a truncated cone shaft that is exceptionally long and will grate enough cheese to satisfy the requirements for one portion just with one complete stroke.
Beautiful in the kitchen and on the table. 4″ x 4″ x 18″ Steel and wood construction.
This was the 3rd Todo Grater that I have bought as a gift, I will probably need to buy 2 more plus another for myself ! I think that it is the most amazing piece of very stylish dining equipment and it works well too ! I can’t show you a photo since I have already given the grater as a present.
I would like to add that Nordic Nest are excellent !.
Like all Alessi products, this cheese grater is stylish and quirky, but absolutely practical at the same time. Great Italian style! The service, price and delivery from Peters of Kensington remains always top notch.
As with most of my Alessi Products, this was one was also purchased to look good in the kitchen. It does this very well and I would award it full marks. However, if you are buying this as a useful working utensil, I would think very carefully.
It sure looks pretty but that is about it and as that was why I purchased it, I have no complaints.
Experience the pleasure of Cuisipros razor sharp etched graters with exclusive Surface Glide Technology. This is a special grooved grating surface, exclusive to Cuisipro, that creates the perfect balance between ease of grating and maximum effciency for an outstanding grating performance.
The science behind Surface Glide Technology is based on the repeated grooved pattern that is spread evenly accross the face of the grating surface. First, the grooves reduce resistance, making it easier to grate food.
Second, the grooves elongate the length of each individual blade, so a larger cutting surface comes in contact with food, and more food is grated with each stroke. The parmesan rasp is perfect for garnishing with parmesan, other hard cheeses and chocolate.
The ergonomic grip handle and non-slip end provide stability and safety while grating. The protective plastic cover doubles as a measuring device. For best results, wash rasp by hand.
I haven’t used a rasp/grater like this before and decided that this particular model with a section that held onto the “filings” seemed like a fabulous idea, and it is. Lovely Parmesan cheese that doesn’t fly everywhere over my work-top, lime rind that stays where it should and is easily poured from its holder – it’s just perfect – why didn’t I buy one years ago? Love it and I highly recommend this particular brand because of its handy cover that reverses and catches all the grindings.
I was very impressed with the ergonomic fit of this tool. It is also very sharp! The plastic part isn’t just a guard, it also serves as a built-in measuring device for zest. Highly recommended; I like it much better than the Pampered Chef one it replaced!.
Grate and shred cheese easily with American Metalcraft’s Hand-Crank Cheese Grater. Made of stainless steel for years of everyday use, this professional-grade rotary grater makes it easier, safer, and quicker to grate and shred cheese.
Perfect for any home or kitchen, this rotary grater features one cylinder and single coarseness for grating. With this grater, more cheese can be grated faster than a traditional manual dome or plank grater, both of which are often time consuming and can be dangerous.
This rotary grater is also easy to clean and dishwasher safe. Each order contains one cheese greater measuring 8. 625 L x 3. 625 W x 2. 875 H. With 70 years of service, American Metalcraft is a leader in the foodservice industry for trend-focused and unique products.
Works OK, but badly executed. The handle press is too far from the grater and a large chunk of cheese does not get grated. The strength of the metal over the plastic unit is worth the higher price, but I wish it was designed better.
I have a similar galvanized unit that I inherited from my maternal grandmother that is so much better, except for the galvanized steel instead of stainless. So maybe my expectations regarding this greater were too high.
But I do not see why modern design and manufacturing methods cannot at least match a similar product from 70 years ago.
definitely feel this is more for home-use than for commercial use. while it does a pretty good job grating the cheese, it only does so for a fairly narrow range of sizes of pieces of cheese, and since it leaves a small piece ungrated, every time it has to be re-loaded there is a bit more waste.
that’s fine at home, where you can eat the tasty chunk left over with a sip of wine, but no good for controlling food costs in a restaurant kitchen. also, the hand you hold the grater with ends up getting in the way of the crank handle coming around, so using it for more than a few minutes on a given night is an exercise in frustration.
I’d give it another star — or maybe even two — if it this were a home kitchen website, but for preofessional use it just doesn’t cut it for me.
This great hand held stainless steel grater is wonderful. It’s easy to use and makes grating cheese effortless. It’s perfect for grating cheese right at the table, over individual plates or dishes, or for using in the kitchen.
It also disassembles easily for easy cleaning. I love this grater.

Positive: (the points are listed in no particular order of preference) 1. Easy to take apart for cleaning, and easy to reassemble. 2. It grates cheese quickly and finely, so when I don’t wish to use a microplane because grating a substantial amount of cheese takes much longer on the microplane, The Zyliss is my favorite for larger batches of cheese.
The Zyliss classic cheese grater won’t make the fine shavings of a fine microplane, but the resulting grated cheese is fine enough for easily melting on pasta, sauces, salads, anything. 3. The Zyliss Classic Cheese grater looks simple, but is built like a tank.
I had mine for 15 years and it somehow disappeared out of the cupboard where I stored it and I haven’t found it since. I have waited for it to turn up, but have come to the conclusion it was snatched or accidentally thrown out.
I can’t imagine it being accidentally thrown out. Someone probably walked off with it. I’m thrilled to have one again.
Very sharp cutting wheel, I like better the straight strinigs of cheese the older model produced as opposed to the curly strings this one makes but it is much easier to grate with this new one. The sharper blades require much less pressure (squeeze) on the handle and the wheel is not as hard to turn while cutting, that will hopefully help with the only problem the older grater had which is that the clip that locks the handle in place is somewhat easy to break because of the amount of pressure needed for grating.
Overall I like this grater much better than any other I ever tried (even the old model) and I have tried many.
I was looking for an inexpensive tool to grate frozen butter for baking. This Zyliss All-Cheese grate has fulfilled my need. It is a nice compact kitchen tool that easily grates frozen butter without grating your own fingers.
I let the frozen butter sit out for just a few minutes to make grating easilier.
Whether sprinkling fresh Parmesan over pasta or dusting grated chocolate over a fancy dessert, this easy rotary cheese grater works quickly and easily. The versatile cheese grinder is perfect for grating hard cheeses, chocolate, nuts, vegetables garlic and more.
The stainless steel grating drum accommodates all textures and sizes for quick, easy food prep, then easily removes for cleaning. Stainless steel construction assures lasting durability; dishwasher safe.
I only use this tool for parmesan cheese and it works great. You need to be gentle using it. Don’t put the cheese rind in it. As for other cheeses, why not use a standard hand grater as other cheeses are easier to grate but parmesan needs a special tool.
Also, when cleaning after use, let the grater dry out overnight to make cleaning easier.
Cheese Grater, countertop, electric, manual feed, safety microswitch, ironed steel grating drum, stainless steel basin & hopper, 1 HP, 110v/60/1-ph, QPS approved, made in Italy These models allow for easy grating of hard cheese and stale breads.
Designed to be suitable for small to medium applications. Features ironed steel drums, stainless steel basins and hoppers.
So far I am impressed with this cheese grater, I have only used it a couple of times, and it did a great job grating some hard cheese like Parmescan,RomanoPecorino and GranPadano. The only drawback it’s a little hard to clean.
Also they should given you the Allen key to remove the stuffing box which holds the cheese. It’s a 5ml Allen key.
Really like this cheese grater! We have had for a couple of years now and it’s been a wonderful tool for an Italian kitchen! We grate Romano Pecorino and Parmigiana Reggiano with ease! We have had to change the fuse twice but no other issues.
They do not make things like they used to but this machine does work. I had a different brand from 1970s-1980s so I thought this would be a nice upgrade with it being 1. 5 HP. Let’s just say that I’m going to be rebuilding my old machine.
Anyway, about this model. Lots of metal pieces for the first 30-50 lbs of cheese you grate. VERY loud noises come from it. It does not take much for it to seize.
A cheese grater with a Chef’n spin on things. Our take on a classic tool, the Chef’n Rotary Grater is designed to let you keep an eye on what you’re grating, and it comes apart for easy cleaning too.

Choose smart, easy-to-use kitchen utensils that are built on tasteful design, new technologies, and the trusted reputation of Chef’n.
I’ve always liked in a restaurant when they grate the parmesan over your pasta dish. I truly have a hard time staying stop. Now with the chef’n Rotary Grater, I can grate hard cheeses to my hearts desire at home.
My husband wanted to give it the first try and since we didn’t have a hard parmesan, we instead tried a sharp cheddar. It was easy to load, our chunk of cheese fit and easily closed in the spring-loaded chamber.
It cranked easily, because the handle is geared. You can see it grate as you crank the handle and know exactly how much you have. It all came apart easily in order to wash everything. They do recommend hand washing the blade, but I think I would hand wash all of it.
What I was most impressed by is that it fully grated all the cheese we had inserted into the machine. All that was left was a small sliver at the end. Overall, we both liked this product and think we will buy more hard cheeses to grate fresh on our dishes.
I was gifted this product, so I could give an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed herein are my own and not influenced by the company.
No squeezing handles to make this handy grater work! Once loaded, the spring applies all the pressure and you focus where you want to place perfectly grated cheese. Only bummer is that it is NOT dishwasher safe; got to clean it by hand.
I was gifted this product so I could give an honest review.
This is a fantastic little cheese grater! It is easy to use, easy to clean, and easy to find a place to store it. That’s really all I have to say about it. It’s great. I was given this product in exchange for my honest review.

Reviews From Real Customers
This is an excellent cheese grater because you can use it for really hard cheeses as well as softer ones. Most of the other graters available will only work on hard cheeses. And I also chose it because it is made by Zyliss.
I saw this in an equipment review and ordered it based on their opinions. Wow, am I glad that I did! It’s hopper is a good size and each revolution grates loads of cheese. I really like the multiple blades that come with it for using on different cheeses.
The Parmesan Grater makes fine fluffy piles of even the hardest cheeses, terrific for making a fast melting powder for pastas and sauces. All Microplane 45000 Gourmet Series graters are dishwasher-safe, featuring all stainless steel frame and blade construction, non-slip rubber feet and red, ergonomic, soft touch handle for a more comfortable, sure grip.
To say this is sharp is an understatement. I?ve used many graters in the past, and never once have I used one as sharp as this; so sharp in fact, that it sliced the tip of my finger off during my first usage.
I was not ready for how efficient it was going to be so I would not recommend this for anyone who either is not a 100% professional using a grater or, even professionals, I would say to get a pair of cut resistent gloves to be safe.
This is a tool where if a mistake is made, it will be a PAINFUL one, unlike a cheaper, less sharp grater that would just leave more of a scrape than a gash. Overall it?s a well built, good quality grater that will not fall apart with usage.
It cuts through hard produce like butter and just bites away at food so quickly. I just have to take a star away because the sharpness almost makes the tool dangerous for the lack of extra precaution on the device.
Moral of the story, sharpest does not always equal better, but if you want an amazingly built grater and have cut resistent gloves, I would say this is the perfect tool.
I have several of this brand graters. The plastic edged ones seem to fail fairly quickly (in a couple years). I got the full metal set as a gift from my husband. I have been using these over the holidays and they are much more robust than the plastic edged ones I have been using.
I find the slide to be sub par in quality and function. It doesn’t run along the grater smoothly. I doubt that will be used. I find the long stick zester to be easier to use than the zester included in this set for doing lemons and limes.
This grater was purchased to replace a similar coarse grater (also Microplane) that had a PLASTIC FRAME. One of the first times I used the first one, the frame easily snapped. It remained 1/2 functional because of the stiffness of the blade, but would easily bend when grating Parmesan Cheese.
The only reason to produce a grater with a plastic frame would be to sell more graters: cheap/easy to make. I spent about $12. 99 for the first one and only about $3. 00 more for the metal frame one.
The blades are identical. The Professional Series is difficult to find either because Food Services buy them all or Microplane doesn’t want to sell a product that will last.
Easily And Safely Grate Cheese With This Home Basics Rotary Cheese Grater. Made Of Heavy Duty Plastic, It Features Stainless Steel Blades To Grate And Shred Hard Cheeses, Chocolates, And More. Designed For Both Left And Right Handed Use.
Parmenide Parmesan Cheese Grater by Alessi The grater Parmenide designed by Alejandro Ruiz brings two aspects of the traditional household scene together: the cheese grater and the serving bowl. Parmenide also becomes an attractive piece of tableware once the cheese has been grated.
In the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. 6″ x 3″ x 2. 75″h Plastic and steel construction. The Alessi Cheese collection is available here. The Alessi brand is available here.
I bought this as the JL version wasn’t in stock. It is gorgeous and no doubt much nicer than the basics first. Super sturdy plastic and efficient grater. One small point though, you can’t use it to store the cheese once grated so loses a star for practicality.
An elegantly simple way to grate and serve Parmesan that works really well, no downsides and expect this to last for many years. Note that the black body is very slightly translucent, it looks a solid black in the online photos.
The Alessi cheese grater is quite small compared to other products and therefore fits very well in the hand. The grated cheese always ends up in the drip tray. A very nice product. But what the product pictures do not show – the shell is partially transparent.
Call it the jack of all trades, this all-in one, multi-sided cheese grater offers 4 grating surfaces to make creating the perfect texture for your recipe much more easier. The four blades include: course, slice, medium, and fine, all of which measure 6 inches long.
The larger grater holes are razor sharp and make quick work for shredding large potatoes to make hash browns, with the finer grater holes great for more precise tasks like zesting lemons. The rubber footing is an added plus as it keeps it from sliding around or scratching the counter while in use.
After reading the review about the top coming out, I tried to pull the top off of my cheese grater. It is impossible to do so. The person obviously got a defective model and should return it. At $7. 00 this is a good value for the money.
After using the grater for several months, my only complaint is that the wide side with the largest holes has become a little concave in its center. That barely deteriorates its performance. The rubber on the bottom is also a bit loose and does catch a little cheese in it.
I was under the impression you could get 2 graters, but other then that it is great. My husband is an awesome cook and he had to use this plastic grater for years that he had to put over a bowl and grind as hard as he could.
He’d be sweating and his arm would ache afterwards and he hated it. Now though it’s a breeze and he even grated an entire block of cheese so he wouldn’t have to worry about doing it later. He never could do that with the plastic one.
The quality was much better than I expected, especially for the low price. Very well made with a comfortable handle and a vinyl/rubber type non-slip base. It lost only 1 star but that was for the ad’s photo.
I did not think I would get TWO as the photo shows, but the word ‘assortment’ might fool some customers. (I might have missed a color choice- my fault if that is the case) No matter what: Just one grater, for that quality , and price, was VERY good!.
Cheese Grater, countertop, electric, manual feed, ironed steel grating drum, stainless steel basin & hopper, 1. 5 HP, 110v/60/1-ph, QPS approved, made in Italy These models allow for easy grating of hard cheese and stale breads.
Designed to be suitable for small to medium applications. Features ironed steel drums, stainless steel basins and hoppers.
Looks great, excellent for parmesan and hard cheeses. Messy with regular cheddar. Cleaning is inconvenient, one either needs a stiff brush, or take it apart with Allen keys which are not supplied. The exit under the grater plugs up with ground cheese, and cleaning that is very hard to do.
The Home Series is a refreshed and popular paddle-shaped, hand-held graters with an updated handle design that provides greater comfort, stability and durability. The handle design combines a comfortable, soft touch material with an overlay of stronger, molded plastic with subtle ribbing for a more secure grip.
All Microplane Home Series graters offer a broad grating surface for more room to efficiently get the job done and feature razor-sharp surgical-grade stainless steel blades. Use a coarse grater for carrots, garlic, ginger, onions, coconut, chocolate, and hard cheeses.
The results will be small gratings. Aroma and taste are guaranteed. Available in black and red colour. Globally recognized, Microplane is the original manufacturer to apply photo-etching technology to graters, an innovative process specifically designed to create ultra-sharp cutting edges.
The blade ensures that food does not stick or block, but instead gently slides along the cutting surface to produce perfect results every time.
I bought for a friend who had yet to discover the precision and ease Microplane products makes of getting a culinary job done. Since receiving, my friend has made a point of using this grater over previous methods.
It is especially wonderful for hard cheeses like Parmigiano Reggiano, nutmeg, ginger, and garlic.
This device grates ginger perfectly. My wife has grated ginger every morning, and this grater halves the time it takes to grate enough, and requires far less effort than our old one. Thoroughly recommend.
Too large for my hand, so it’s harder to use than it should be. The grating surface is much bigger than necessary because all the fruits I’m grating with it are round, so most of the surface area is unused.
I only bought it out of desperation because I can’t find the product I actually want.
The Rigamonti Cheese Grater includes a drum and rotary grater and a solid body to ensure it will last for years. Preparing sauces and grating cheese for salads or to melt as toppings is no longer a hassle with the Rotary Cheese grinder.
It is a great gift idea for hostesses or housewarmings, as well as for use in your own kitchen. Made in Italy.

Really good cheese grater. Every slicer blade works perfect. The handle tho seems to be loose. If i end up losing the handle the grater would still work but I’d have to hold it by the sides which i do not look forward to when the time comes, so i suggest you treat it with love when holding the handle so it doesn’t come off too soon.
However if it does break off, it can be fixed with a good glue because cheap glue is what seems to be holding it in place anyways.
