Cheese Grater Tip

The best tip I have found for the cheese grater is to cut your cheese in large chunks that will fit into the unit, put on a plate, and microwave at full power for 10 seconds -- no longer. Everyone who has tried this has been totally amazed at the results. I now love to demo the grater with any type of cheese. This technique brings out the oil in the cheese and it grates easily with no sticking. I know it is totally opposite of what we have been taught in the past. Try it, you'll love it.

cheese grater

I found if you put your chocolate candy bars in the freezer for about 1 hour. The cheese grater works great for grating chocolate.

Yes, I'm not sure where I first heard the cheese tip, but it does definately help!! You don't have to squeese the grater like you do when the cheese comes out of the fridge. My guests have been impressed to hear this tip! Always great to know extra little 'quick tips'!

You're a life saver!!!! I really didn't care for my cheese grater. I had started to just use the USG for it. When I read your post I quickly made nachos for my kids. I cannot believe how easy the cheddar cheese flows out!!!! literally, it just flows out. I mean, really, with four kids, I NEVER remembered to freeze my cheese in time for a recipe!!! This is the BEST TIP ever!!!
