When grating cheese or vegetables with a box grater, wear a clean dish washing glove. It keeps knuckles from being scraped, if you get too close to the grater. It also helps keep a grip on the food being grated. When finished, just rinse the gloves on hang to dry.

This is a guide about cleaning a cheese grater. Cheese graters are really handy for shredding and grating cheeses. The cheese can be sticky and difficult clean off after you are done sing it though.

I used to hate cleaning the grater when I was little. Well, before grating anything, make sure the food is hard or frozen.

Frozen ginger will grate into fine powder without all the stringy fibers sticking to holes. You don't have to peel it either. Just wash the whole thing before freezing.

Frozen cheese can be frozen and crumbled on a grater easier than the soft kind. I would buy a block instead of the cubed or grated kind. Frozen cubes are just better processed in the food processor. Just add them sparingly before dumping the whole bag into the machine.

Frozen meat can be grated if allowed to defrost a little. The fat will grate easier than the red part. And that is what you want to grate first anyway. If you don't, it will clog up the holes worse than the meat will.
