No more! I love this product from Microplane. I have the smaller Microplane rasp spice grater as well, but I wanted this one because it allows me to store the nuts with the grinder. (That's how I ended up falling for the expensive rotary grinder.) The output is fine. A good feature is that you can grate enough to spoon from the container if you need it for larger recipes. I think it grates finer than the other rasp spice grater.
The product is easy to clean -- unsnap everything and throw it into the dishwasher.
This is not a must-have product, but it is one of those little conveniences that makes cooking so much easier. If you don't already have a grinder, purchase this one. If you already have a grinder, wait until it breaks.
It can go in the dishwasher with no problem.
Out of the box, I had a little trouble snapping it together but if you carefully push the wide end down first and work your way forward while gently pushing, it will snap together. After a few uses, it's much easier to snap apart and back together.
As I said in the title of this review, I find the grater to work great with nutmeg (almost too good, since I end up grating more than I need). I guess that I should take advantage of the clear bottom and what how much I've grated. As for cinnamon, it seems to take a lot longer to grate than nutmeg, because the cinnamon bark is much harder than a nutmeg. So, for one I get too much, while the other I seem to get too little, but the effort is still very much worth the effort.
I would not recommend this for anyone who needs a lot of freshly ground cinnamon. But, other than that, it is a great product. Definitely 5-stars!
The main problems (such as they are) are that (a) it's so easy to grate three times as much nutmeg as you need, and (b) nutmegs are small, so your fingers will get close to the planing surface. But those are quibbles -- I appreciate that I can get more of out a nutmeg than my other grinder, which sometimes left about 1/3 of a nutmeg un-grate-able.
This new little contraption is genius!!!! It stores nuts, it provides a nice small microplane, and it store any unused grated nutmeg! Look at it this way, in one little container you have everything you need to have fresh nutmeg. ALSO, the blades are protected from damage and stay sharper longer.
I love mine so much that I bought two others to give as gifts!!!
Nonetheless, I have used this strictly for grating nutmeg, and it has always worked very well, so buying another as a replacement was an easy decision. I'm able to make use of about 90% of whole nutmeg before the end-piece gets too small to hold/grate - hardly a huge waste - and happy tradeoff for the pre-ground stuff from the grocery store spice aisle. And I don't feel that it's an extremely dangerous device at all - one needs to take the same reasonable precautions with this device as with many other kitchen tools - knives, box graters, mandolins, etc.
I like that the gratings can be either scooped or shaken from the little container, and I also like that when it's closed the contents are completely contained so none of the leftover gratings can escape and make a mess wherever it's stored. Count me as a happy repeat customer.
