“ Manufacturer: Prestige / Type: Chees Grater „
I tend to use cheese in cooking either for general meals or to add to my daughter's meal to make things creamy for her, and therefore an essential piece of kitchen kit is a cheese grater. I have only ever owned a box grater, but recently with me making my baby girl meals as well I seem to have this big box grater out constantly and it is becoming a bit of a nuisance because of the size and I hate washing it, especially when you have only been wanting to grate a small amount of cheese.
So recently when browsing in TK Maxx I noticed them selling Prestige Hand Cheese Graters for a reasonable £3.99 and I decided this may be a better option. Having had Prestige products before and been happy with the quality of them, I was confident in this product.
The actual grater is metal however the handle is rubber to give you more grip which is useful. Unlike a box grater where you can grate cheese of different thickness or for example the rind of a lemon or lime, you can only grate one thickness of cheese etc using this hand grater, but that is what I do most of the time anyhow so that didn't bother me, and to be honest, the more fancy the gadget the bigger it often is and that is exactly what I don't want.
I have been using this product for a few weeks now and I have found it to be quite good. It does grate the cheese quite finely, which obviously won't be suitable for every dish, but is perfect for my daughter and for sprinkling into sandwiches. I find it easy to hold and to use and it seems to grate the cheese without too much effort on my part. We don't have a dishwasher, so I have washed it plenty since buying it and I find it easy to clean, much easier than the box grater as I can ensure nothing gets missed.
All in all, for the reasonable price of £3.99 for a good branded hand cheese grater I felt this was a product that was worth purchasing. It is great to now have an alternative to a box grater when you are only wanting to use small amounts of cheese, and it is far easier to clean. I am happy with my purchase and would recommend it!
