Based on a decades-old design, this gorgeous cheese grater is made of sustainable acacia and comes with two stainless-steel arched grater inserts, one for soft cheese and the other for hard cheeses. The ingenious foot-stop feature stabilizes the grater against the edge of a countertop during use, and a removable drawer allows easy transfer of cheese to your table.
Just before the turn of the century, Enrico Ratti worked as a carpenter for a wealthy family near Castagnetto, Italy, and fell in love with their daughter, Luisa. The family would not give their blessing for Luisa to wed the orphan Enrico, so they eloped to America, bringing with them their love of the dishes of the Italian countryside. Alas, America lacked the tools of a traditional Italian kitchen, so Enrico fashioned by hand the predecessor of today’s Enrico Grater for the rich hard cheeses they so cherished. And now you too can enjoy the simple beauty and practicality of Enrico’s century-old design along with the other beautiful kitchen products in the Enrico Collection.
