Love This Grater!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Microplane Grate and Shake Nutmeg Grinder/Grater, Black (Kitchen)
Microplane makes the best graters and this little gadget is no exception. It stores the nutmeg in the black area and grates in to the clear box. You get perfect little gratings of nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, etc. This is the second one I've owned. The first one developed a crack along the edge and the blade was starting to get dull after about 6 years of use. We use a lot of nutmeg so it was used frequently.
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.
