Which Grater is Right for You?

Which Grater is Right for You?

Words Amalia Safran

Whether you’re looking into a box grater or want something for grating cheese, we’ll help you decide which one is right for you.

For cooks on the hunt to grate– whether it be cheese, produce or butter — we have your back. Graters come in all shapes and sizes, and we have a wide variety to give you options to choose from depending on how often you grate and what size grates you need. We’re here to help you find the right grater:

Box Grater with Removable Zester

For the Frequent Grater-er

If you’re a frequent grater-er and want long-lasting sharpness, we’d go etched. The Etched Box Grater with Removable Zester’s multipurpose design includes medium and coarse surfaces, a slicer and a zester. Bonus: the removable zester stores on-board, which means you can zest right over a dish, but still keep your kitchen clutter free.

For the Last-Minute Grating Emergency

Not a big grater, but looking for something for last-minute grating emergencies like grated butter for the pie you make once a year? The Etched Coarse Grater will help you with semi-soft cheeses, butter, apples, cabbage, potatoes and onions.

For the Parm Lover

If you’re honest with yourself and realize you’re mainly looking to grate parmesan cheese, then 1, we respect you, and 2, we say go for the Etched Medium Grater

Etched Two-Fold Grater

For the Indecisive Grater

Can’t decide between the Coarse and the Medium? The dual-purpose design of the Two-Fold Grater will make the decision for you.

For the Small Jobs

Sticking to smaller grating jobs like citrus, chocolate, garlic and ginger? The Zester Grater is the right tool for the job

For the Minimalist

Strapped for space (aka you live in a tiny NYC apartment)? The Mini Grate & Slice Set one’s for you. It takes what you need in a grater and puts it in one neat little package. Prep meals in an instant either over a bowl or right into the lid –  it doubles as a container for collecting and measuring. You’ll save space left and right!

For the Enthusiastic Grater-er 

If you find yourself using a few different graters and slicers, we recommend the Spiralize, Grate & Slice Set. It can be your mandoline, your cheese grater, your spiralizer and your new best friend.
