I’ve got one of those walls which seems to have every piece of kitchen gadgetry thats ever been made. Melon baller (cos I’m always balling my melons!), testers (cos I’m always zesting my lemons), strainers (cos I’m always…you get the idea). If it’s been made it’s probably hanging on my Ikea “tool” rack.
And I appear to have some kind of fixation for graters. Big ones, small ones, boxed, you name it, I’ve got it. All rusting away on that rack!
Deiss recently asked us to take a look at their Pro Lemon Zester and Grater and with my love for all things grater I was up for it.
The grater comes with a protective cover and a hole to hang your grater onto your tool rack.
The main things we grate are cheese, chocolate and citrus fruit zest. So off I went, with Fred (our cat) sensing that there was cheese to be eaten not far behind.
First up: chocolate. It grated very easily and with a swish of a finger underneath to make sure all the gratings were out.
Next: a satsuma. I thought I’d try this as it’s not a solid as a lemon, so let’s see how the grater handles the softer skin.
This is a sharp, sleek grater which will do any grating job quickly and efficiently.
So cheese! A block of Emmental cheese, not a solid cheese for grating so a bit of a challenge, but it was easy to grate as you can see.
Cleaning was easy too. A hot water rinse under the tap or kettle. It’s dishwasher-proof as well.
Overall, we’re extremely impressed with the Deiss Grater. It’s easy to handle, store, clean, and the gratings were of a size ideal for grating cheese, ginger, nutmeg, chocolate, lemons and much more. Downsides were that the grater is very sharp, which is also a plus of course but do watch your fingers (use protective cover when not in use)! Some gratings also accumulate in the underside of the blade and need to be scooped out with a finger (don’t worry, the underside is safe for fingers).

Disclaimer: We received a free Deiss grater to review. But it really is one of the better graters we’ve used. Fred concurs though he has asked us specifically not to grate his food because that would be stupid, and to make sure we use the protective cover when not in use because if anyone is dishing out scratches in this household it will be him!
