I really love to grate my own cheese. I find it melts better, I use less and it tastes better - weird I know.
There's just something with those prepackaged shredded cheeses that just makes them different.
Anyway, due to some health problems, I'm not really able to use my box grater for this as much.
Can anyone recommend a good quality shredder? Maybe even a restaurant type one (my family uses a lot of cheese, lol.) I can easily get to a restaurant supply store, so that's not a problem.
I have a vintage Mouli grater (purchased on etsy.com), but new rotary graters are comparable and easy to find. With either type, you just put in the cheese and turn a hand crank: this grater requires a smaller range of motion and shreds cheese much better than a box grater. I absolutely love mine; as a bonus, it also looks great.
