I have a rotary cheese grater that I absolutely love. Over the years I’ve tried different ways to shred my own cheese, and I’ve finally found the perfect way. I will openly admit that I hate using a traditional grater to shred cheese. I’m terrified of knicking my knuckles.

Then I found the Zyliss Rotary Cheese Grater, and this is not an ad, I just love it so much and want to spread the word. It makes cheese grating a breeze. Just pop the cheese in and turn the handle.
You might be wondering…why shred your own cheese if you can buy it already shredded? I’ll tell you why…because it’s so much better when it’s freshly shredded! I don’t shred my own cheese all the time, I sometimes buy it shredded from the store, but for Parmesan or cheddar I try to use my handy dandy rotary cheese grater. The cheese grater is easy to use and easy to clean as well, just pop the pieces apart and stick them in your dishwasher.
