The Occasional Tip: Grating Cheeses



Gotta love those cheeses! Soft cheeses, hard cheeses, sliced, diced or grated.
Only problem with grating cheeses is the cleaning up of those graters.
One easy solution ... give the grater a spritz of some cooking oil before grating. That should prevent the cheese from sticking too much to those annoying little holes. Much easier to clean too! Happy grating!

  1. What a great idea. I am sure my sons, who are the resident dishwashers these days, would appreciate an easier-to-clean cheese grater!

  2. Well, that's a very useful tip because I spend ages scrubbing our cheese grater and then when it's dried, there's always odd little bits left over! Thanks. :)

    Kita: Oh my goodness ... Ouch! This should save some thumbs or make the BF clean it next time ;)
