Tesco Value Flat Grater
Disadvantages: Horrible to use
You can actually purchase this grater online with your groceries which is what I did but it I also available in store and it will cost you the small price of 74 pence as it is part of their value range. It does not look like much but them is any grater really stylish it is a simple design with the main grater being rather small and then a black plastic handle at the top for you to hold while grating.
Overall it is rather sturdy the handle could have been a little thicker as it does become uncomfortable to hold after a while and as it is not free standing you need to be careful as holding it upright and grating without the grater slipping in your hands and falling can be a challenge.
It has 3 ways to grate the items there is a small medium and large grooves in the grater meaning you can choose what size you want the cheese cut. I do find it is only good with cheese if I am trying to grate anything stronger like carrots it can be really hard and take forever to grate and this was the main reason I replaced it. Also he sections for each size of grating are tine it is really hard to grate a large amount at once as the sections are simply too small it is a nice idea to hose how you would like to grate something but it is just not practical as the size of the grater itself is tiny so to divide this into three separate sections was not a good idea.
When you grate the cheese rather than it falling freely from the grater I find it just gathers on the grater and you have to keep prising it out to continue or it gets all clogged up. Also it is difficult to clean especially the smaller section of the grater the cheese gets stuck in it and can take some time to make sure it is fully clean but I do find my new grater is also difficult to clean but as the chesses actually falls from the grater rather than getting stuck it is a little easier.
I actually hated this product it was uncomfortable to use the sections are small for large amount of food and it can no grate anything but cheese well and within 3 weeks of use I replaced with a triangle grater as I find these work much better i would be ok for someone on a budget but personally I hated it.
Usually I love value products from Tesco but this really is shoddy and I would advise you to pay a little more for something more practical and that can function well in your kitchen this would be fine for someone coking for one or two people but for a family it is useless.
Summary: Pay for something a little better
