The Sweethome (and The Wirecutter) is a list of the best gadgets and gear for people who quickly want to know what to get. Here is an explanation of exactly what we do and how to support our work.  

The Best Grater

After 40 hours of research, expert interviews, and testing 28 graters, we found the $30 Cuisipro Surface Glide Technology 4-Sided Box Grater is the best for most home kitchens. It shreds hard and soft cheeses, as well as carrots and potatoes, more efficiently than almost any other model we tested. Plus, it shaves off wisps of citrus zests without tearing into the bitter pith—unlike the competition—making it the most versatile grater we found.
