What can I use a grater for?As a versatile kitchen tool, the grater effortlessly shreds vegetables, firm fruits, cheese, chocolate, and nuts. So, if you desire a delicious fitness salad with grated carrots and fine cucumber strips, a vegetable grater or slicer is the perfect kitchen helper. With a square grater, you have a choice of different cutting sizes. On the other hand, a universal grater has only one side, but it offers multiple options for grating by layering.
For quick and safe work, especially with hard foods like nuts, a drum grater is highly recommended. You fill the top with the food, lightly press it down with the plunger, and turn the crank to rotate the drum.

Our TRANSFORMA® drum grater also provides various inserts, perfect for grating potatoes for dumplings, for example.

What is the difference between grating and slicing?
When grating, the kitchen tool finely breaks down the food into small pieces or even creates a flour-like consistency. On the other hand, slicing produces slightly thicker strips or slices. For example, when using a cheese slicer, the resulting cheese pieces can be used to top baked goods and pizza or properly cut Parmesan for a salad, as finely grated Parmesan cheese is not usually preferred. The julienne slicer is particularly suitable for Asian dishes. Its fine strips complement most dishes, including salads.
For shredding cabbage, whether white or red, a slicer with a large surface area should be used. If you don't have the appropriate kitchen tool at hand, cut the cabbage into manageable pieces before slicing.
