I purchased this grater before Christmas and have used it a number of times. The grater is sharp and well made. I have no problem using it to grate large amounts of food. I find it to be a terrific help in the kitchen. I have had many graters in the past and none have been as well made and easy to use as this one. I also love that it is made out of stainless steel so I don't have to worry about rust. A great item.
