Enter the Cuisipro 4-sided Box Grater with patent pending Surface Glide Technology™ ...the solution to the issue of less-than adequate box graters. Surface Glide Technology is based upon an etched - not stamped - pattern of ‘repeated grooves’ across the face of the grater. These grooves provide 2 benefits over traditional grater designs. First, they reduce resistance, making the task easier to perform, more quickly, and with less physical effort. But second, and more importantly, the grooves also elongate the cutting surface of each blade, bringing more food in contact with the blades on each stroke: yielding more ‘gratings’ per stroke. The sum of these two benefits is a more efficient grating process, with more consistent, attractive results.
The 4-sided Box Grater has Fine (think citrus zest or nutmeg), Coarse (think bigger zest: our preference!), and Ultra-Coarse (think semi-soft cheeses, like the mixture used in Aligot Potatoes), as well as a Slicer blade, on those occasions when breaking out the mandolin is too much for tonight’s meal. The set also comes with a fresh ginger grater, which we love to use in anything Southeast Asian! It has calibrated measurements on the side (in both US and Metric measurements) and a sturdy nonslip handle to hold the Grater down firmly ...so then you can slip your scraper under the bottom of the grater and move the measured product to your mixing bowl or dish. What could be easier? ...and more convenient?
In short: a basic essential tool with cool new technology that justifies replacing (throwing out!) your old dull stamped metal box grater, and making space in your kitchen for this beauty from Cuisipro!
