A grater is a kitchen utensil used for shaving certain foods, such as cheese and vegetables, into small shreds.

Graters come in varying shapes and sizes, but basically a grater is a thin sheet of metal or plastic with sharp-edged perforations. They may be round, flat or curved with a selection of different types of perforations suitable for grating differ-ent foods.

Food to be grated should be firm and, in the case of cheese, dry. Once grated, food, particularly raw root vegetables, should be used as quickly as possible.
