Behold, that illustrious kitchen staple commonly known as the cheese grater:
Now, I realize I’m no Julia Child (or whoever is hip to reference these days) in the kitchen, but this tool has FOUR sides to it. It always has and it always will. In my entire life, I have only ever used one side and completely ignored (or neglected if the thing has feelings) the other three sides.
Because I have no idea what they do.
Because I took Band instead of Home Ec in school.
Now, one of these sides I can at least guess what it does. It probably slices or something.
Like maybe cucumbers or fingers or whatever, but I just use that other kitchen staple….the knife.
However, there are still two other sides to this thing. And that is where the mystery deepens for me:
What the bleepin’ bleep do these two sides do? I once thought they might super tiny grate the cheese like how they used to have in Taco Bell tacos. One day I fruitlessly scraped and pretty much just mangled a hunk of cheese and created a virtual pile of nothing but a cheese grater that was then impossible to clean.
Am I the only dummy here?
By the way…
