Cheese grater of choice for fast, large batches
« on: December 11, 2022, 10:27:31 PM »
Just seeing what the recommendations are. I used my Magimix grater attachment tonight and found cleanup to be a bit annoying, but will likely be easier in the future if I use cold water instead of hot.

Anyone have any recommendations for large batches that they tend to use?

How much cheese is a large batch?

I use a grater attachment for my KitchenAid.  Clean it with water and a scrub brush immediately after using it so the cheese doesn't harden, and then goes in the dishwasher.

I sense your question is about soft cheeses, such as LM mozzarella. If it is a hard cheese, such as parm or Romano, this method has worked quickly and well for me. Member bigMoose was quite happy with it.

For much smaller batches around 3 pounds I use a salad shooter pro. Been using it to grate pizza cheese long enough so that I don't feel like it owes me anything if it should implode. I also have an added coarser grating cone that I have been using lately. Much coarser shred but it is faster and easier on the machine. I would not recommend doing 15 pounds of cheese on one of these with the finer shred. Coarser might be ok for a little while. They are not meant for that level of use. It also wouldn't be fun to press 15 pounds through. Another way is to skip it and buy preshredded Grande if possible.  They don't add things like potato starch.

If you want to seriously shred, the cheese hog is back in production. You might be able to find one used somewhere. Probably overkill since they start at $4500 new, but still fun videos to watch if you scroll down. Wish they made a home version.

Tony, I can say I am indeed shredding LM Mozz. Food processor may be the way, just clean it with cold water so it doesnít melt like it did over the weekendÖ  :chef:

Jon, I think my eyes are bigger than my stomach in this case. $4500 in my situation is overkill to a degree thatís not really measurable. Hilarious product name though.
