An essential and versatile item in any kitchen, a cheese grater can be used for many other foods as well. Carrots, cucumbers, nuts, garlic, chocolate and more can be grated, ground or sliced using one of the four different grating surfaces found on each side. Single surface models are also available for adding a bit of topping to a customer’s dish right at the table. Made of stainless steel, or a combination of steel and plastic, these tools can be the traditional square shape, or can have rotary action with changeable blades to create different textures. Electric models are also available for high volume processing.
