Broke quickly
I was really excited about this grater because of the micoplane name and the quality of their other products, but this was very disappointing and cracked within a couple months of getting it. The black part, that the microplanes are connected to, is all plastic and cracked under the pressure of grating. The metal microplanes themselves are great and sharp, but mine has cracked so much that I'm no longer able to use it

Breaks Easily
I, too, had mine break relatively quickly. I still use it, though it's in really sad shape. The grating is awesome, but the quality is really low, though certainly not the price

Terrible... broke way to quick
I love microplanes but this is so poorly made I would not recommend it to my worst enemy. I was very excited to get this for my birthday and it broke after 1 month. DO NOT BUY!!!

"Wicked sharp. Emphasis on ""wicked."""
The first time I used this grater, I took a chunk out of my thumb while trying to shred a carrot.

I've learned to treat the device more gingerly since then, and the rest of my fingers remain intact. But I confess I'm still a little nervous every time I pick it up.

That said, it works reasonably well ��it's my go-to for quickly tearing apart large blocks of cheese. It hasn't broken, as it has for some of the other reviewers. But I don't like it as much as the smaller handheld Microplane graters I have, even though they don't work as quickly

The black plastic broke the first time I used it to grate cheese. I've super glued it four times now and treat it gingerly, but it still has issues. Great design and wonderful that the back comes off for cleaning, but not quite up to par

Great tool!
I've been using this tool for 2 years now and it has been great. I like that you can remove one of the sides so you can clean the inside easily. I have to admit that the extra coarse side is starting to get a little dull but other sides are still very sharp. The side that removes is great for grating cheese and I actually remove it from the unit and lay it ontop of a bowl and do the grating. Works great and easy on the arms. I love my grater but I'm needing a sharper extra coarse side so will get one of the single units. I think it is a nice unit but I do hand wash it and do not put it in the dishwasher which I think might weaken it with the hot water wash and heat to dry the dishes. I would recommend this for quality and ease of use.
