How To Use A Box Grater

Chef Remi Box Grater

Most of us have a box grater in our kitchens. It’s an essential item, especially when it comes to grating cheese.

However, little did I know that it can do so much more. In fact, I’ve recently learnt that grating cheese on a box grater isn’t even all that efficient!

Cheese has a habit of spilling everywhere, and it has a tendency to stick to grates, which can lead to accidentally grating your knuckles or fingers!

I much prefer using a cheese grater with snap-on container to contain the mess.

If you still want to use your box grater as a cheese grater, then I recommend you spray the grates with some cooking oil first.

You’ll find that the cheese glides more easily over the grates without sticking to them (I can’t help you with the mess though!)

My box grater gets used all the time in my kitchen, now that I know exactly how to use each and every grate.

I’ve put together a step-by-step guide that will show you how to get the most out of your humble box grater.

 

1) Use the large grate for shredding cabbage, potato, etc

The large grates are fantastic for quickly shredding large vegetables – much more efficient than using a knife.

I used to buy pre-made hash browns. Now I just use my box grater to quickly shred fresh potatoes……both my 11 year old daughter and my partner agree that homemade hash browns are so much tastier than the shop bought ones!

 

2) Use the medium grate for mincing onions, grating carrot etc

The medium sized grate on a box grater is perfect for creating smaller cuts of food. I love mincing onions!

Yes, I need to get my goggles out as grating does release even more of the gas that causes watery eyes, but I can grate through several onions in under 5 minutes.

I used to hate how long it would take me to finely slice and mince onions using a knife!

3) Use the zesting side grate for mincing garlic, ginger, spices etc or for zesting citrus fruit

I used to hate mincing garlic with a knife. I love how using the fine zesting grate quickly minces up garlic into a mush.

Perfect for adding to homemade tomato sauces or bologna, without someone accidentally getting a big ‘hit’ of garlic because I didn’t mince finely enough using a knife!

 

4) Use the ‘mandolin’ side grate to thinly and evenly slice cucumbers, zucchinis etc

I never used to know what those side blades on a box grater were for. They’re actually a mini mandolin!

Unless you’re a real pro with a great chef’s knife, and can create vegetable slices that are just a couple of millimeters thick, you’ll be hard pressed to beat the ultra-thin slices you can create with the mandolin grate.

Sue said: Hamburg pressing

Wow this press is the best I have ever tried. The weight makes it easy to press a burger but not too heavy to use. I was just making patties by hand because I didnt like other presses. No more now that I have this press.

Tracy Woytas said: Love it!

I've needed a new apple slicer for so long. I'm glad I found this one. I have arthritis and this makes it much easier to slice apples! My kids love apples and caramel dip. This makes it easy for them to slice their apples.

Paula said: Works better than my old set.

This set is a dream compared to my old set (they will be going in my yard sale). The measurements are very easy to read and I dont even have to get my reading glasses. The handles I like the best, my other set the handles were not very sturdy, these do not buckle under when full like my old set. My only wish was that the smallest one also had tablespoon measurements. I have used both hot and cold liquids, I even put a pound of butter in the medium one and melted it, the butter not the cups! So happy that I got these! thanks again Chef Remi!!!!!!!!!!!

Lollie said: See what you have been missing!

These grill mats are the best invention! Keeps the grill clean. Soft, or smaller foods don't fall through, or stick. Mats are easy cleaning in the dishwasher. Also great for baking cookies in the oven. Cookies slide right off! I am giving these as Christmas gifts. Highly recommend!

Jenny said: Very sturdy and Sharp Chef's Knife

I am very impressed with the way this knife is designed and the price is very affordable too. First time I got the knife, I could feel that this knife will be a great product because the handle feels strong and durable. The blade is sturdy and very sharp, I can cut meat and vegetables with ease. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and definitely will recommend Chef Remi products to all my friends and family.
