Believe it or not, I have been using the same grater for years. And years, and years. I was born in the 80’s and I would not be surprised if the grater was as well. If not that early, then definitely the 90’s. It had a place you put the food and then cranked it to grate it. I have wanted a new one for awhile, but I didn’t ever think about it until I was pulling out the old one. Grating some fresh Ginger was the last straw. I am glad to say it is now in the donate box. Yay! I felt so pampered and privileged when I first used this grater! I like that it is layed down and that makes controlling the food that is being grated super easy. The blades are very sharp and it took very little effort to grate some Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, which to me, is on the tougher side of cheese to grate. Making this little darling more appealing is the catch tray underneath. This grater was definitely worth all the time I used that old one. If you would like to check it out, the link is below.
