What It Is: Think of the Microplane Cube Grater as a dwarf version of a traditional box grater. The modular-shaped tool provides surgically sharp blades on three sides in coarse, ribbon, and fine grating sizes. The center core catches, measures, and can stow up to 1-1/2 cups of food while you grate.

Why We Like It: Multifunctional. Compact. Convenient. Stylish. What’s not to love about this 3-cutters-in-1 concept, especially when it includes Microplane’s reknowned ultra-sharp cutters? The Cube is especially handy when you don’t have great quantities of food to grate, or when you need different sizes or styles. Also, storage space is about a quarter that of most box graters.

Details: The Microplane Cube Grater consists of a 3x3x3-inch plastic housing with surgical-grade stainless steel blades—fine, ribbon, and coarse—on three sides and a protective cover. The catch feature and protective cover double as a measuring device (holds up to 1-1/2 cups). Dishwasher safe on top rack; hand wash safety cover. Available in black, red, or green. Retails for $20.
