No matter how magnificent the pasta or the sauce, it is foolish to forego the classic grated Parmigiano Reggiano®.

And, for that job, our pick is the Zyliss grater. It grates more cheese in less time, featuring an acid-etched drum and blades that make grating hard cheese, chocolate and nuts effortless. The handle folds in for compact storage and can be switched for right or left-handed use. Plus, it cleans up easy with removable parts that are dishwasher safe.
