Yes, you can grate cheese with the grater insert of the US&G...the one with the holes in it. I, too, would make sure she has the chunks of cheese small enough to fit into the food holder. Also, when you slice or grate anything and you use the food holder (like you should!), you want to hold the base of it when you slide it back and forth. You don't want to push down too much on the "handle" part because that ends up pushing the little spikes out too much, then it doesn't hold the food in. I hope that makes sense! It's hard to just describe it instead of showing it.Stephanie S said:Is it possible to grate cheese with the ultimate slice & grate? One of my guests asked me how, she has one and is having a difficult time getting the cheese to stick into the spikes..... Any ideas?

To assemble the Ultimate Slice & Grate, first insert the grate attachment into the main body and twist it clockwise to secure it in place. Then, attach the handle to the main body by lining up the arrows and twisting it clockwise until it clicks into place. Finally, insert the food holder into the top of the main body, making sure it is securely attached. Your Ultimate Slice & Grate is now ready to use!
The Ultimate Slice & Grate is suitable for grating a variety of hard and soft cheeses such as cheddar, parmesan, mozzarella, and more. However, we do not recommend using it for grating soft, crumbly cheeses like feta or blue cheese.
To clean the Ultimate Slice & Grate, disassemble the parts and wash them with warm, soapy water. Make sure to remove any cheese residue from the grate attachment using a brush or sponge. The main body and handle are also dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.
The Ultimate Slice & Grate comes with two interchangeable graters, one with larger holes and one with smaller holes. To achieve a finer grate, use the grater with the smaller holes. For a coarser grate, use the grater with the larger holes.
Yes, the Ultimate Slice & Grate can also be used for grating vegetables, fruits, and even chocolate. However, we recommend using a separate grater for sweet and savory foods to avoid cross-contamination of flavors.
