If you are squeezing it pushs the food into the wheel making it hard to grate. Even your hard cheeses and veggies, etc will grate easier if you lightly hold the handle.
bbauman07 said:Maybe it is for the hard cheeses but I was told to lightly hold the handle with everything because if you think about it if you were using the traditional type of grater you don't push it into the grater you just push down on the cheese, etc. So I have never tried to squeeze the handle.
You can grate carrots for salads or meat loaf, zucchini for breads, bread crumbs or crackers, cabbage for cole slaw, apple for pancakes, bacon for bacon bits, frozen butter over waffles or instead of drizzling melted butter, also potatoes for hashbrowns, and even crayons for you crafts like candle making.
I hope this has helped you.
To clean your cheese grater, first remove any large pieces of cheese with a utensil. Then, run it under hot water and use a soft brush or sponge to scrub away any remaining cheese residue. For tougher grime, you can use a mixture of hot water and dish soap. Rinse thoroughly and dry before storing.
Yes, our cheese graters are versatile and can be used for grating other foods such as vegetables, chocolate, and even garlic. Just be sure to clean it thoroughly between uses to avoid cross-contamination.
To prevent cheese from sticking to the grater, make sure it is at room temperature before grating. You can also lightly coat the grater with cooking spray or rub a small amount of oil on the surface before grating.
Soft cheeses like mozzarella or feta can be difficult to grate on a traditional cheese grater. We recommend using a microplane grater or slicing the cheese instead of grating it.
We do not recommend putting your cheese grater in the dishwasher as it can cause damage to the sharp edges and decrease the lifespan of the product. It is best to hand wash your grater with hot water and soap.
