Experience the pleasure of Cuisipro's razor sharp etched graters with exclusive Surface Glide Technology. The science behind Surface Glide Technology is based on the repeated grooved pattern that is spread evenly across the face of the grating surface. First, the grooves reduce resistance, making it easier to grate food. Second, the grooves elongate the length of each individual blade, so a larger cutting surface comes in contact with food, and more food is grated with each stroke. The parmesan grater is perfect for garnishing with parmesan, other hard cheeses and chocolate. The ergonomic grip handle and non-slip end provide stability and safety while grating. The protective plastic cover doubles as a measuring device. For best results, wash grater by hand.
