What it is:
It’s a box grater, only actually shaped like a box. Most have multiple grating surfaces, from a microplane to a much larger ribbon and all in between.
Why I like it
Size is everything. It’s fairly small, so it fits in every drawer. It can all but replace traditional box graters and microplanes as well. Most designs have a clear window with graduations to better measure out.
What You can do with it
Zest a lemon, grate some cheese, ribbon some zucchini, anything you could use a handheld grater for, this rocks. I use it very often, including in my Caesar Dressing recipe
Where You can find it
I like the model linked below, which is very affordable, dishwasher safe, and is a very compact 3”x3”x3”.
