For those looking to buy this device from amazon uk to save themselves the trouble of dealing with the europlug of the italian version, this is going to be a disappointment. The power supply is effectively just the italian edition (europlug) with something like euro 2 pin to 3 pin converter plug / adapter – black screwed on, making it clumsy and taking up a lot of space. I would have suggested using something like black 5 a fused euro converter plug 2 pole euro plug to 3 pin uk plug at least, to take less space, and not have a “shelf” when trying to plug it in. Otherwise, the device works as specified and grates cheese perfectly fine. Cleaning it is (as always for these devices) a bit tricky, but it opens up in four parts and can actually be put in the dishwasher.
From an italian family who go through a silly amount of hard cheese, this is fantastic. Makes life much easier & quicker. It gets used so often no need to clean it thoroughly every time, a good shake and take the blade out to wipe clean is more than enough.
The shortcomings are that there is no light beaming down for ambient lighting usage purposes, it is a little large for smaller hands and if you want to use it in north america you will need to additionally purchase a voltage converter to power it / recharge it.
Great product and our cheese consumption has increased as the grandchildren love to use it.
- Power brick has a bothersome Europlug->UK adapter.
- Looks impressive.

Great if you use a lot of cheese on your pasta.
A bit expensive but does its job. Arrives with the three plug adapter.
Quick delivery, heavier and bigger than i though.
This has been bought as a present for christmas so as yet, cannot comment on how it works. However, i have seen these used in my local restaurant and been very impressed. Should also mention that it has come with a plug suitable for use in the uk.
Grates well if not a little fine would like a course grater as well.
Exactly what we wanted works well grates perfectly & charge lasts for a long time.
