This rotary cheese grater combines razor-sharp etched blades with a grooved pattern to allow cooks to grate larger quantities of food with less effort. The grater is easy to use, has a wide hopper to handle large chunks of cheese, and creates ideal grates of cheese, chocolate, vegetables, and nuts. The parmesan drum is ideal for hard foods; it's made with sunburst-shaped holes that when used for parmesan or other hard cheeses or chocolates provides results that are light enough to accent a recipe yet substantial enough to not melt completely on contact when grated onto hot foods. The coarse drum tackles vegetables, most cheeses, and nuts.
Unlike conventional graters in which the cutting edges are formed by punching holes through stainless steel or tin, this grater's tiny razor-like edges are created with a photo-etching process in which holes are dissolved with a chemical, leaving edges that finely shave or slice the food instead of tearing or shredding. A repeated groove pattern is spread evenly across the face of the grating surface, reducing resistance and thereby making grating effortless and lengthening each individual blade, so each blade has a greater cutting surface that comes in contact with food, thereby producing more gratings per stroke. Combined, these features provide outstanding grating performance.
