The OXO Good Grips Box Grater is ideal for shredding large quantities of vegetables or cheese. The two wider sides feature coarse and medium blades, and the two narrower sides feature fine and slicer blades. Use the coarse and medium blades for grating a variety of foods, including chocolate, carrots, coconut, and hard cheese. Use the fine blade for grating spices, aromatics, and citrus zest. Use the slicer blade to shave or slice vegetables and cheese. Grate directly onto a clean kitchen surface, or use the included container with measurement markings, nonslip base, and storage lid.
