The Microplane Cube Grater is a mini box grater which includes the 3 most widely used blade styles for grating cheese and other foods. The included blades are fine, for zesting citrus and hard cheese; ribbon for grating chocolate and coconut; and a coarse blade for grating cheddar cheese and other soft cheeses. The blades are housed in a small plastic box and with these blade choices, you can grate anything for any meal. This makes preparing your favorite dish easy and saves space as it is much smaller than a traditional box grater. Take it camping, on the road, or downsize to a tiny home. The Microplane Cube Grater multi-purpose clear box acts as a catch feature, as a measuring cup, or stores excess food, and acts as a protective cover for safe storage.
This item has three sizes of openings, works very well, and leaves way less of a mess because the cheese goes into the box. Plus you can store whatever you have grated in it if needed. A winner!! I have had the sides of two traditional type graters cave in just this year. I know they are cheaper but I am happy about this one. The only thing I wish was different is that I would love it if the box could be bigger.
I had a rotary grater, which I liked until it broke. I decided to go simple, but hand graters are hard for me to keep steady. This has been very useful. Not as fast as a rotary, but it does a great job. I have shredded parmesan, carrots, cucumbers, and jicama with no trouble. Combined with a cutting glove I can grate the entire piece. I like that the food stays mostly self contained, and there are measurement marks. The only oddity is you have to take out the grater to see how full it is. Overall I am quite pleased and hope it lasts longer than my rotary grater did.
