Side note....We love zucchini pancakes. I shred a large zucchini, salt,drain, and squeeze out excess liguid, and then mix with 1 egg and enough boxed cornbread mix to create a nice consistancy batter. I've always shredded the zukes with the Cuisinart until I got this. I discovered that the "shred" I get with this box grater creates a batter that makes much nicer pancakes.
One good thing--but also my main point of worry--is the rubber no-slip lip at the bottom. It's great that it stops it from slipping, but it also **catches and holds small pieces of food**. My wife was grating cheese the other day, and after she was done she washed the grater as usual. She happened to pull back the rubber in the process and noticed that CHEESE was caught in there! From the outside, the grater looked fully clean. But the material had found its way in there, and we had to clean the inside of the rubber part out. This is worrisome, as this is an area for food to catch, rot, and potentially spread harmful bacteria to other things you grate. We had only used the grater a few times, and we weren't doing anything out of the ordinary. We both know our way around a kitchen, and we weren't trying to grate with our elbows or teeth or anything stupid like that.
It would give this 5 stars as a grater, as it grates well and the handle seems securely attached. But the trapping of food in a non-visible place drops this to a three to me. It's not quite enough for me to return it, as now that I know of this problem I'll either just make sure to clean under that rubber, put some silicon in there to fill the space, or remove the rubber altogether if it becomes a hassle. But since I hadn't seen this mentioned in any other reviews I looked at before I bought the product, I wanted to warn any potential buyers who WEREN'T willing to put in the extra effort or didn't even know it was a problem. If you're not willing to deal with this issue, it's probably better for your safety that you don't buy this grater.
