Ooh, I just recieved this little beauty in my mailbox! It's a Microplane box grater, and I have high hopes for it! My old box grater is.. well, old. Perfectly serviceable, but hard to clean and I'm always worried that I might scratch myself. While I think *that* is a concern with this new one as well, the cleaning issue has been solved! This one has removable sides, that you can slide out and wash in the dishwasher. Pretty cool - and I look forward to trying it out.
