I needed this like I needed a hole in my head. An overpriced German food grater ensemble which attracted me solely because it was different and I didn't have one. I had a gift certificate to spend but noted that there was nothing else in that store that screamed at me to buy it. I love browsing Williams-Sonoma but we all got to admit, their prices are way over what you can pay at some other local L.A. kitchen supply stores.
It is unique, compact and has an assortment of special blades. It can be used like a mandolin and one day I may find a need that my other graters do not fulfil.
