15 Fantastic Ways to Upcycle Cheese Graters


15 Fantastic Cheese Grater Upcycles.  You never knew you could repurpose graters this many ways!


Kitchen tools come and go, yet the not much has changed when it comes to cheese graters.  Sure, they may pad the handles, or make them round so they will fit as an attachment on your stand mixer, but really.. at the heart of it, cheese graters have stayed pretty true to their original 1540 design (Yes graters are almost 500 years old!) 

 This article from Culture Magazine article showcases the diversity of this common kitchen utensil. (And if you are a cheese grater aficionado, it is practically cheese shredder porn!)  

So it got me thinking.. we all have cheese graters, and you see them at thrift stores all the time.  They are still affordable, even the old ones.  But what could one do with the beloved cheese grater to give it new life?

Well.. I've collected 15 fantastic ideas (NONE of which have to actually do with grating cheese!) So now if you see a grater at the flea market, you may be inclined to pick it up!

Just wait until you see #15!!
