How do I clean this?
I've tried metal scrubber thing and it shreds the metal. What exactly do I use to clean coated on cheese off of it. I can get big pieces off but there is still a residue. I really just want it clean without shredding my cleaning utensils.
Soak it for a bit in boiling water or near boiling to melt the cheese then wipe it down. A very hot dishwasher cycle could have the same effect if you have one. wipe it down after with a lint free cloth from the inside. Get a flat cheese grater for future use . They are easier to keep clean.
I haven't seen one of these in years. My mom used to just let her's soak in the sink under hot water and some dish soap.
The best thing I've ever used for these is a long handled brush. It gets all the nooks and crannies and doesn't get torn up. I use one to grate soap for homemade laundry detergent as well, and the brush has been a dream cleaning utensil.
I have one of these. It's great. A plastic dishwashing brush with a long handle does the cleaning job just fine. Scrub it in your hot soapy water. Most helpful tip is to clean it quite promptly before the cheese hardens.
Thank you. I really do like it, but no matter the direction I scrub it has destroyed everything so far. I had it soaking all night so I am scrubbing with a brush this morning.
I'm hoping you bought what we call a dishwashing brush (often found near dishwashing detergent) and not a flimsy bottle brush. Next time you grate, wash it promptly. Scrub inside first to loosen the grip, then up & sideways on exterior.
Brush it down inside and out with a plastic-bristled brush THE SECOND YOU ARE DONE USING IT. Then, immediately stick it into hot SOAPY water.That way, the cheese doesn't have a chance to dry on and stick fast.
Using a toothbrush makes the job easy and efficient. You can use your husband's toothbrush and sneak it back, just don't leave any cheese between the bristles.
You just have to scrub it with a sponge or rag. Just scrub upwards instead of downwards. It should get everything. Also scrub the outside and the inside.
Suggestion from the retired lady with the CLOSED sign on her kitchen door.......Buy your cheese already shredded!!!
Lol! But it's so much cheaper to buy a giant block and shred it. Though I think I'm going to start calculating an hourly wage into the equation if the long handled brush doesn't work out!
peeples honey.....Some things are just worth the extra pennies!!! (Smile)
We make pizza a lot, and we use this for the mozzarella cheese...This is what I do...I have a packet of small sponges where one of the sides is rough.
I use ICE COLD WATER...I Lather the sponge with dish liquid, and scrub the daylights out of it, inside and out, and rinse with COLD water. Hot water makes the cheese gummy for me. I get it done in seconds. I THEN throw away the sponge.
I personally use the sprayer on my kitchen sink, with all hot water right after I use it not giving it a chance to stick.
yes, i use toothbrush, old and worn out one, since its useful
