Shred foods such as cheese or potatoes into uniform pieces that melt or cook evenly, or grate spices on top of a dish to season it. Some graters have additional features such as a plane for slicing cheese or multiple grating surfaces for creating fine, medium, and coarse shreds.
Featuring four different cutting surfaces, these multipurpose box graters let you slice cheese, zest citrus fruits, and create fine, medium, or coarse shreds from cheese, vegetables, fruits, and spices. When placed on a flat surface such as a cutting board, the grated food is held inside the grater until it is lifted off the surface, keeping the work surface tidy. Hold the handle at the top to keep the grater steady while you work.
Make thin, even slices every time with these cheese planes. They have a sharp cutting edge that is pushed across the top of a block of semi-hard or hard cheese to slice it, making them perfect for slicing cheese for hors d'oeuvres or sandwiches. These handy tools can also be used for slicing cold butter or vegetables like cucumber or cabbage.
Create small strips of flavorful citrus zest for dressing up salads, pastries, and vinaigrettes with these citrus zesters. Their curved metal head has a series of sharp-edged holes that cut ribbons from the peel of any citrus fruit, removing it from the bitter pith beneath. Some zesters have an additional blade for cutting longer twists of citrus peel for garnishing cocktails and dishes.
