Cheese graters come in many different shapes and sizes, but no matter which style you prefer it takes a certain nimbleness to navigate the end of a block of cheese. A shredded pile of deliciousness may be staring you in the face, but the question always remains what to do with the piece of cheese left in your hand. Too small to properly grasp, and too large to consider as shredded, more often than not, this little kitchen scrap gets nibbled on or thrown away. Sometimes to the dismay of our fingers, we throw caution to the wind, and try to shred out every last scrap of cheese in the block.
No longer must cooks suffer the humility of grated knuckles simply to utilize the whole block of cheese. The Mario Batali Cheese Grater features an ingenious design that incorporates a cheese grip right into the handle. While shredding, simply press down on the cheese with the easy-to-grip handle, and your fingers will be protected. Cheese is delivered right into the measuring vessel, and there is even a lid so you can save any unused cheese. Saving fingers and cheese, Mario Batali might be the next superhero. Now if he can only figure out what to do with that pesky economy.
