This review is from: Zyliss Extra Large Rotary Cheese Grater with Fine and Coarse Drums (Kitchen & Home)
This is basically a kitchen gadget for the lazy amongst us. I love cooking and cheese is oh-so-definitely a part of that. If there is one part of cooking I absolutely hate however it's grating cheese! I hate the muscle power and dexterity required to do it well. I hate the fact I end up grating my fingers occasionally. And I hate that I've gone through a number of cheaper graters over the years as they eventually relent from pressure on the handles or just aged plastic.
In steps the joyous solution in this rotary cheese grater! If it looks gimmicky it is because it is indeed quite swish to behold. When I first fetched it out the box I was dubious if it was actually a working kitchen tool or just a fancy gimmick. Fortunately my fears were dispelled when it churned through a slab of cheese in record time. Seriously grating cheese isn't just super easy with this thing it is also really fast! Thanks to it also being dishwasher safe it was a simple matter of disassembling it in 20 seconds and popping it in the dishwasher when I finished. I was also impressed that you can load the drum in two ways so this can be used by both left and right handed people which is great if you share a kitchen with others.
Tonight me and the mrs had tasty enchillidas without any of the hassle! Result! So whilst I'd acknowledge it is a little on the pricey side it's certainly well made, works very well and took the hassle out of what is a mundane kitchen chore. If that's what you're looking for then grab yourself one and get grating!
