Cheese graters were invented in the 1950s by François Boullier and have proved incredibly useful ever since, cheese graters come in many different designs, types and sizes. We stock quite a range of cheese graters from rotary drum graters to cheese planes. Grated cheese is great for spreading over food that's destined for the oven or grill, as grated cheese melts quicker and more evenly that sliced cheese. It's also easier to mix grated cheese into sauces and baking mixes.
A grater can come in a variety of grades from fine to very coarse, many box graters have a different shape or gauge of blade on each side so that multiple types of grated cheese can be created from one grater. A Parmesan grater is designed for grating Parmesan and other very hard cheeses to a fine grate, these can also be used for grating nutmeg and chocolate.
