Our Zyliss Swiss Army grater lost its suction after almost 20 years. It is no longer sold in the US so I searched and found several possible alternatives. This one was 'nyeh' OK. So I went back to Amazon and found the real thing from the UK. Paid dearly for it but absolutely worth it. If a high volume industrial quality grater is what you're looking for, find the one at Amazon.uk and buy it. You'll be far happier.
