The Chopper, which fits a standard 2-pound block of cheese, keeps it airtight and safe, along an easy way to grate or slice it. The gadget requires minimal effort to clean. Grater and slicers provided within the box are very easy to wash that one won’t even scrape their fingers like cleaning a box grater.
