I was looking for a new cheese grater because the two i already had were broken. One had the handle breaking loose, and the one's grating panel was popping out of the seam joint. This 4-sided grater is well constructed with the integrated handle. Also the grater body itself only have one joint, so I think it will hold up better. It is a little smaller than my previous model, but it should be fine for cheeses and vegetable. I also ordered a second one for my son.
