Editorial Reviews
For fluffy, evenly sized cheese shreds, this is the perfect grater. Its design is based on that of a rasp, the small and efficient woodworking tool. The cutters are especially sharp, which guarantees easy grating. But this also means you'll need to exercise extra caution--no one likes grated knuckles. The large handle allows for a firm grip, and the completely flat grating surface makes it easy to move the cheese across the blades. Carrots, onions, and medium to firm cheeses all worked beautifully with this grater. It's also an excellent choice for larger strips of citrus zest or ginger. --Jill Lightner

5Fantastic, very efficient grater!
By Deb1987
This grater is fantastic! It is extremely user friendly. The length makes it easy to use & it fits nicely in your hand. Not too heavy. Very ergonomic. I have only used it once on frozen ginger root. I keep ginger root in the freezer & peel it as needed. I just grate off what I need over the pan right out of the freezer. It was quick & very efficient. No problem getting the grated ginger off. I just tapped it on the side of the pan rim. You can also run your finger along the back side, but there really was not much left on the grater after I tapped it gently a couple of times on the rim of the pan. It is very sharp. I was kind of worried about cleaning it, but that was also a breeze. I just rinsed it under the faucet or you can use the sink sprayer. I definitely will not be without this tool in my kitchen in the future!

5Perfect to use!!!
By Raynebow Ocean
This thing is FABOOSH!! I used it to grate ginger!! It was easy as pie; perfectly grated and my shavings/gratings were easily accessible on the other side unlike using a standard standing cheese grater with those teeny tiny, rough holes (so much of your ingredient becomes stuck and cumbersome to get out of that side of the grater)! That's the worst way to obtain zest etc. So I LOVE this for all zesting needs, grating ginger and fine Parmesan! Now I'm more excited than ever to make recipes calling for zest especially lemon bars that are extra thick. Zesting has been such a pain in the crack, but no longer. I grew excited using it finding how easy it is to zest now!! This tool even comes with a clear slip on protecting sheathe so no one gets nicked when reaching for it in the drawer :)

Love it!! It's grate (misspelling intended)!!! :-) Soooo much better for grating ginger than the flat one with the holes in it! Very sharp and gets the job one very quickly! and very easy to clean, too! I love the protective sleeve as well. Recommended!!
