Cheese graters/slicers
« on: February 07, 2012, 08:15:36 PM »
Any experience with the microplane cheese box grater/slicer?  I used a generic box grater for mozzarella, and it is a bit of a slug when I have to grate 2 pounds of mozzarella.  In years past, I have frozen my mozzarella for 40 minutes before using my Cuisinart shredder, but over the past year I am fearful of freezing my mozzarella for quality concerns ( unjustified? ) and the cheese does seem to be a bit too "feathery" after going through the processor.  The microplane does have a slicer on the side - any good?  I have been playing around with cheese slices in place of shredding, and at times will use my V slicer, but it is a bit dangerous and hit or miss.  Any experience with motorized meat slicers out there for cheese slicing? Thanks for any input.  Mark

I use a meat grinder on my Kitchenaid mixer for cheese. You end up with little round cheese pellets that are much easier and quicker to apply than shreds IMO.

I have a shredder attachment for my KitchenAid, which is great for doing a lot of cheese in a hurry. However, I rarely use it because it's such an ordeal to drag it out of it's hiding place, and then clean it when you're done.
