Thomas Jefferson imported Parmesan cheese from Italy. This cheese mill grates hard cheeses just like a pepper mill, making sharing around the table sanitary and safe. It’s perfect for grating cheese directly over pasta, pizza, salads, soups and more. The top removes to load small chunks of cheese and the mill comes with one fine and one coarse blade—the extra blade stores in the bottom lid. Ergonomic design fits comfortably in your hand. Dishwasher safe. 6 3/4"h x 3" dia.
