My Thoughts on the Smarty Pants Grater/Zester
We have been using this grater for everything, chocolate, cheese, citrus zest and I am sure we will find more things to use it for. It is sharp and cleans easily. I have not had any problems with the holes clogging at all, which is usually something that happens with graters, so I have been pleased with that. I have only used hard cheeses on it, so that might be why it doesn't clog because softer items can become squishy and stick. I just love how when you add grated or zested food on top of your foods it instantly makes them look even more appealing and gourmet.
This would make an AWESOME Christmas gift for any foodie on your Christmas list, or wannabe foodies.
