Have you ever wondered why your Cheddar crumbles into pieces as you try to grate it? Leaving you with knuckles that are more grated than the cheese? Here's a tip - your grater has lost its sharpness. Think back. How long have you had that grater? Wedding present, was it? Well, no excuse then for not shelling out on this stainless steel box grater. It's no beauty ( you don't keep it on display, do you?) but it's functional. And at this price - grate value!
