The Unsung Hero of Cheese: The Cheese Grater


Here at Cacique, we make no effort to hide our unending passion and love for cheese, but we seldom take any time to recognize the various tools and instruments that help us slice, serve, and enjoy it.

Today, we pay homage to the “cheese grater” in all of its varied shapes and sizes. Cheese graters have come a long way from the classic “metal triangular” model that you probably remember from childhood. From modern to old-world, and with varying degrees of fun and functionality, check out this collection of clever and unique cheese graters.

The cute design of this grater makes it another one of our favorites, although it’s not designed to handle large amounts of cheese…which is problematic for many of our staff members. Buy it here:
