Comments about A di Alessi Parmenide Cheese Grater - Ice:

We grate a LOT of parmesan cheese at my house, we hate using the pre-grated stuff and I needed to add something else to my cart to get the free shipping, so I figured why not.

The pros:
- Very attractive
- Easy to clean
- Easy to assemble
- Small
- Creates perfect sized pieces (not dust and not big long chunks, just the shavings at expensive Italian restaurants)

The cons:
- Expensive for what it is
- Wobbly (you have to make sure you balance the bottom perfectly or it'll flip over
- Kind messy, I always seem to wind up with a little bit of cheese on the counter if I grate on the counter
- Requires quite a bit of work, it is less work to use the four sided grater but this guy is so cute, makes the perfect size shaving, and already comes with the bowl.

I might have to update this review when I get better at using it, this is a great purchase if you grate cheese or veggies or zest citrus a lot.
