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.
Oh my. If you've never had freshly grated nutmeg in anything - and always thought you weren't all that fond of the spice before - you have no idea what you're missing. Nutmeg is super easy to grate (it's about as soft as a peanut), and within seconds of starting, your entire kitchen will start to have that spicy aroma. It makes your baked items taste SO much better, and your kitchen that much more appealing.
The grater itself is easy to use. It has a storage space for the nutmeg itself, and you can use the grater portion to shake out the nutmeg if you're using it for garnish, or slide the microplane out of the way and just dump it all in.
I've purchased these as gifts for people - I love them. Definitely worth your money if you enjoy baking!
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.
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.
