This Is How to Shred Cheese So Nothing Sticks to the Box Grater

Say goodbye to cheese that sticks to the grater!

Turns out, there are plenty of surprising reasons to grate your own cheese: it melts more smoothly, you get more bang for your buck and it tastes better, since freshly grated cheese doesn’t contain added preservatives and chemicals. And since you’re shredding it on the spot, it will have a fresher, creamier taste. Yum!

But grating cheese can be a hassle. The cheese sticks to the grater, making it difficult to tell if you’ve shredded enough to make your favourite baked macaroni and cheese recipe. It also makes washing the grater a total pain.

Luckily, we have an easy cheese grating hack to keep all that cheddar from sticking to your grater.

This will make cheese grating SO easy

TikTok user @HowDoesShe shared a super easy trick that will save you the frustration of picking out cheese from the back of the grater.

Here’s how it works: give the surface of your grater a quick spray with a little olive oil (inside and out) and watch the shredded cheese fall right off the grater. Check out how it works in this TikTok video:
