Kitchen Tip: Grating Cheese

An easy tip for grating cheese...

Simply spray the cheese grater with cooking spray before grating!  The "grease" makes the cheese glide easily across the grates with less effort.  This is key for mozzarella and other softer cheeses.


  1. Great tip! Also try keeping your grater in the freezer--the extreme cold works well too! =)

  2. Great tip! I never would've thought of that!

  3. Some cheeses grate better if frozen for a few minutes. I'm looking at you, mozzarella!

  4. I freeze most of my cheese, so when I grate it it just sorta crumbles.....and that's easy. :-) But I have a tendency to grate my fingers so I have to wear an Ove Glove when I shred anything.
    Cooking hazard. ;-)

  5. I always freeze mozzarella cheese, it just crumbles when defrosted, perfect for pizza :o)


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
