Add this to the list of things we’ve been doing wrong our whole lives.

So apparently there’s an easier way to use the humble grater.

And to be fair, anything that makes it easier to eat more cheese is a-okay with us.

For all these years we’ve placed the grater vertically on a plate or cutting board and risked grating our knuckles whenever the block of cheese got too small. Creating more mess and more to clean up.

This video has gone viral on social media and well, the more we think about it, the more it makes sense.


So next time you are grating cheese (or veggies for you health nuts) try and place the grater length ways.

Boom. Automatically the grated goodness is trapped inside the grater, ready to pour into any nearby bowl. Less mess. Less chance of injury.
