Care Bears Keep Calm And Sleep Cotton Family Tees
Care Bears Keep Calm And Sleep Cotton Family Tees Review
Elizabeth Pankey: No more handles that hurt your hands when grating! Nice rubberized ball for a handle and rubber foot pads prevent hold grater firmly in place while in use. I gave all my other graters away. Also no sharp edges on the inside and easy to clean.
Hannah "Hannah": Product came in on time, as advertised, and works great! I have used the grater numerous times-each time getting exactly the result I was going for! I love the fact that you can just grate over a plate-and that it is easily cleaned in the dishwasher.Normally, I have to wash graters by hand...and as one of my favorite comedians once said (Mitch Hedberg) they never call a cheese grater by its real name...sponge ruiner! This one, you don't have to worry about hand washing it-and my fiance even commented on how elegant it looks. The black silicone/rubbber handle on top definitely helps in control of what you are doing-and the different sizes of grating come in handy as well.Highly recommend, would buy again! On a completley unrelated note, I would also recommend buying products such as this, a hand mixer, etc for people the are just moving in-or don't know how to cook just yet. I'm learning to cook-and part of learning is not knowing everything you need to have a kitchen with all the right utensils. Just a thought :
Janie "teacher on wheels": I like the look and feel of this grater. It looks nice displayed on the kitchen counter. Good sized, but not too big. The only drawback I have is that the standard size shredding side is not very sharp. Usually, I prefer a shredder that is not really sharp. I don't like cutting my knuckles...who does? But this shredder is even a little too dull for me - but that's no big deal for us. We have discovered that we prefer using the side that produces slightly thicker shreds of cheese. Sometimes, cheese does get stuck up inside, but we just use a kitchen brush to solve that problem. Overall, it's a good product, but if you like a really sharp shredder, you probably would not be happy with this one.
Jim: I looked into a number of box and in this case tower graters before deciding on this one. I considered the Oxo Good Grips Box Grater, but several reviewers said that the metal parts on it - the parts that do the actual grating - feel flimsy and tend to be undesirably flexible.The Progressive International Jumbo Tower Grater is not flexible, and it is as ergonomic as I imagine the Oxo is (I own several Oxo kitchen products and all are extremely comfortable to hold).The one caveat I have about it is that because of its shape, I've had grated cheese get stuck in the narrow upper area of the inside of the grater. Now I know that when using the smallest grates (which are on one side of the grater side by side with the zester holes) with cheese that has any stickiness at all to it (e.g., the hardest Parmesan would be an exception, while even the hardest cheddars I've tried get stuck), I should begin grating motions lower down on the tower so that the cheese I grate doesn't get stuck in the narrow area closer to the top of the tower.Other than that I love the grater. One side has standard cheese grating holes. One side has oversized grates which yield ribbons of cheese, and the third side (this grater has 3 sides total) is, as I mention above, divided into two side by side sections, one for zesting and the other for fine grating.It feels very sturdy and stable, and I like that there is a (Phillips head) screw and a washer holding the handle to the grater, because that means that the handle can be tightened should it ever come loose, and it can be detached should I ever feel the need to give the entire grater the most thorough cleaning possible. While it's dishwasher safe, I don't use a dishwasher and getting inside the narrow portion of the tower with a sponge or my Oxo Good Grips Kitchen Brush is difficult. So I must pretty much depend on forcefully sprayed hot water to clean that area (though I suppose there are bottle brushes, e.g, Oxo's, and kitchen brushes with smaller heads that the Oxo Kitchen Brush that would make reaching that area a snap).The Progressive International Jumbo Tower Grater has an "industrial strength" look and feel, and it looks good and somewhat classy on the kitchen counter (where it must stay when not in use unless it is kept in a cabinet or deep drawer, for there is no practical way to hang it from a hook).You know it's 11 inches tall from the description. That makes it taller than the 1/2 gallon carton of Minute Maid OJ I have in my fridge, and with a larger footprint. Each of the grater's 3 sides measures a tad under 5 1/2" at the base. So it deserves to be called Jumbo, because it is, and if you grate as much cheese and as often as I do, that's a good thing. (Handling the grater while making the above measurements made me appreciate again how relatively inflexible and solid the steel on it is.)(One thing I realized after reading professional reviews of a couple of box type graters is that the professional reviewers seem to have based their opinions of the graters on initial impressions and tests. Only by reading reviews by consumers did I realize that some of the graters that professional reviewers gave high ratings to did not hold up over time after repeated regular use.)
judyt57: I really like this grater. It is super steady because of the rubber footies. The rubber covered handle is easy to hold. It has a nice assortment of grating sizes and the blades seem sharp enough to do a good job. It is also heavy enough to feel like it is good quality and will last. I'd recommend it to anyone.
