Not a course grater and pricey too
on 9 September 2013
Not a course grater at all.
Rather fine actually, so forget trying to get that perfect grated cheese.
It's best for vegetables and other things requiring finer grating - or of course Cheese too if you prefer it finer.
All in all, looks good, feels ok in the hand, and blades are sharp - very sharp.
Just hold in one hand and grate away as it's rather ergonomic shaped in design, and has some rubber bits so you can rest it on a worktop/table and grate - but to be honest, old skool ones work better.
It's Chinese made though, so those expecting something made in Sweden or England etc, no luck.
The plastic cover thing isn't great - fiddly to put on right.
All in all - ok grater but not Coarse (as advertised) and you can get decent 4 sides graters (and other similar to this) which are far more versatile and can actually coarse grate for half the price, and I can't help feeling that I prefer to use these other graters than the Zyliss as they're just easier to use
