Lets you store your cheese right inside. A layer of silicone seals the grater in the closed position providing a chamber for cheese storage. An additional cap on the barrel compartment ensures a complete seal so your cheese will not dry out. Grate with the cap on to collect cheese before serving, or remove the cap and grate directly into your dish. Easy-to-use with a soft, comfortable rotating knob and a soft, non-slip handle. Perfect for grating cheese, chocolate, nuts, and more. Dishwasher safe.
