A grater made for hard cheeses

Grate any hard cheese that comes your way with the Acacia Box Cheese Grater. It's also good for soft cheeses.

The Acacia Box Cheese Grater Sur La Table

The Acacia Box Cheese Grater was inspired by a hard-cheese grater from Italy. It comes with two stainless-steel blades that you can switch out--one is meant for hard cheeses, while the other is meant for soft. The box is constructed from Malaysian acacia, which is a renewable wood. Each grater is unique, due to the light and dark contrasting grains in the wood. It has an internal drawer that catches cheese as you grate it and which can be easily emptied into a bowl. If you'd rather, you can even serve cheese in the box since it's so attractive. The Acacia Box Cheese Grater holds plenty of cheese and measures 10.25 inches by 3.25 inches by 4.5 inches.

The design of the Acacia Box Cheese Grater includes a foot-stop feature, which allows you to stabilize the grater against the edge of a countertop or a table as you grate. That can come in handy when you're working with a particularly hard block of cheese. To clean the Acacia Box Cheese Grater, hand wash with warm water and soap and occasionally apply mineral oil. The grater costs $45.
