Warren Simpson is the man behind the Titanium Cheese Grater, a Kickstarter project that has people rejoicing and has raised over $71,000 (significantly more than the original $3,570 goal).

Simpson, a New Zealand-based designer and machinist, wanted to create the last cheese grater you will ever buy after years of buying — and hating — various models of the traditional box grater. “Over the course of my life I grudgingly used an ordinary, everyday ‘box’ grater,” Simpson explains in his Kickstarter pitchwhich was brought to our attention by a post on the tech blog Mashable. “Every time I used it I just accepted the fact I’d have… a big, clunky grater that was painfully difficult to clean… a whole load of mess to clean up… an additional dirty plate… and a good chance I was going cut my fingers!”

Simpson designed his titanium grater with a list of strict restrictions that would combat his annoyances and make grating cheese an effortless procedure.

It had to grate directly onto ones food (eliminating any need for a second plate whose sole purpose is to hold the cheese as it is grated. It had to be effortless to clean, built to last a lifetime, reduce the risk of cutting fingers, and (most importantly to Simpson) it had to allow for a small amount of cheese to be grated at a time, eliminating the palaver of box grating when all you really want is a small amount of grated cheese.

The finished product is a sleek, elegant and modern design. It is dishwasher-safe and boasts an ergonomic handle available in both left- and right-handed versions.

Simpson has been very successful with past Kickstarter projects, having designed and produced a peeler and cheese slicer that have both received rave reviews from customers.

The Titanium Cheese Grater is lovely to look at and is a great tool for grating cheese at the table or in small quantities. Since there’s only one set of sharp grates, it is rather limiting (do you really want giant shards of Parmesan in your pasta?) and if you wanted to actually grate large quantities of anything (potatoes for latkes, cheese for mac and cheese, etc.), your hand would probably tire fairly quickly without the support a box grater offers when placed squarely on a tabletop.

The price tag in something else well worth considering; at roughly $103 (NZD $140), it definitely should be the last grater you need to purchase! Compare it to a microplane — which can be bought for $9.00 online, comes in many different sizes, and similarly frees one from the ties of a box grater — and it begins to look more and more like a beautiful piece of design (which it is, Simpson makes each piece himself) rather than a hardworking staple among kitchen tools.

13 Things You Should Never Put in the Dishwasher

Dishwashers were a blessing when they started popping up in homes in the 1950s. Finally! A quick way to tackle a big batch of dirty dishes. But as much as we love them, they're not a cure-all &mdash and some items need a good ol' fashioned hand-washing. Here's what the cleaning pros in the Good Housekeeping Institute want you to keep far away from the rinse cycle:

1. A Cast-Iron Skillet

You know how you have to season your skillet before using it? Well, when you put it in the dishwasher, you're basically undoing all of that hard work. Instead, rinse it in warm water (no soap!) or rub it clean with salt.

2. Any Wooden Utensils

The hot water and heat for drying is too harsh for your mixing spoons, spatulas, or any other tool with wood on it. The material may warp and lose its shape &mdash making 'em no good for stirring.

3. Your Wooden Cutting Boards

Like the wooden spoons, hot water will cause the finish of your favorite wooden board to dull and possibly warp, says Carolyn Forte, director of the Cleaning Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute. Instead, use a mixture of 3/4 cup chlorine bleach and 1 gallon of water to scrub it clean.

4. Your Grandma's Vintage Plates

If you were gifted the family china when you got married, be wary of exposing it to the hot water and detergents that can eat away at any gold trim or hand-painted details.

5. Your Garlic Press

They speed up supper, but you'll need to slow down to clean them. Since garlic is sticky in paste form, bits of it get stuck in the crevices. Wash yours by hand to ensure it's totally spotless for your next meal prep session.

6. An Insulated Mug

Some newer travel mugs are dishwasher safe, but for others, your dishwasher will destroy the insulation, warns Sharon Franke, director of the Kitchen Appliances and Technology Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute.

7. Bottles With Labels Still on Them

If you want to keep your jam jar, just make sure you remove the paper label and any adhesive remnants first &mdash those materials usually come off in the dishwaser and can get stuck in the filter, which might lead to more serious problems later (problems that cost way more to repair than the jam jar is worth).

8. Any Aluminum Cookware

According to Franke, cookware that is made of aluminum will become discolored. (Eek!) This goes for the disposable stuff, too.

9. Your Cheese Grater

The cheesy goodness you just sprinkled on top of your tacos might still be stuck in the holes even after a cycle in dishwasher. Instead, use soap and a sponge to wash it by hand and ensure today's cheddar doesn't mix with tomorrow's mozzarella.

10. Your Fancy Chef Knives

Since the hard plastic in your dishwasher shouldn't be nicked, you should keep your knives far away from it, Forte says. But if your dishwasher has a rack for knives, you're the exception to the rule. Lucky duck!

11. Copper Pots, Pans, and Mugs

If you enjoy a tasty Moscow Mule in a copper mug as much as we do, you know half of the appeal is your cup's beautiful color. But according to Franke, the harshness of the dishwasher can cause any copper surfaces to dull. Hand wash your copper mugs, pots, and pans instead.

12. Cookware With Burnt-On Stains

So you let the potatoes sit in the oven for a little too long and now you have dark, stubborn crust on your glass baking dish. Since it'll take some serious elbow grease to tackle it (plus some baking soda!), the dishwasher won't cut it. Just roll up your sleeves and get working.

13. Your Crystal

Keep your punch bowl and glasses far, far away: The high water temperature may leave your crystal chipped, cracked, or dull. But you can check with the manufacturer &mdash some crystal is dishwasher safe. Just make sure it's anchored securely so it doesn't rattle and break.

Dishwashers were a blessing when they started popping up in homes in the 1950s. Finally! A quick way to tackle a big batch of dirty dishes. But as much as we love them, they're not a cure-all &mdash and some items need a good ol' fashioned hand-washing. Here's what the cleaning pros in the Good Housekeeping Institute want you to keep far away from the rinse cycle:

1. A Cast-Iron Skillet

You know how you have to season your skillet before using it? Well, when you put it in the dishwasher, you're basically undoing all of that hard work. Instead, rinse it in warm water (no soap!) or rub it clean with salt.

2. Any Wooden Utensils

The hot water and heat for drying is too harsh for your mixing spoons, spatulas, or any other tool with wood on it. The material may warp and lose its shape &mdash making 'em no good for stirring.

3. Your Wooden Cutting Boards

Like the wooden spoons, hot water will cause the finish of your favorite wooden board to dull and possibly warp, says Carolyn Forte, director of the Cleaning Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute. Instead, use a mixture of 3/4 cup chlorine bleach and 1 gallon of water to scrub it clean.

4. Your Grandma's Vintage Plates

If you were gifted the family china when you got married, be wary of exposing it to the hot water and detergents that can eat away at any gold trim or hand-painted details.

5. Your Garlic Press

They speed up supper, but you'll need to slow down to clean them. Since garlic is sticky in paste form, bits of it get stuck in the crevices. Wash yours by hand to ensure it's totally spotless for your next meal prep session.

6. An Insulated Mug

Some newer travel mugs are dishwasher safe, but for others, your dishwasher will destroy the insulation, warns Sharon Franke, director of the Kitchen Appliances and Technology Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute.

7. Bottles With Labels Still on Them

If you want to keep your jam jar, just make sure you remove the paper label and any adhesive remnants first &mdash those materials usually come off in the dishwaser and can get stuck in the filter, which might lead to more serious problems later (problems that cost way more to repair than the jam jar is worth).

8. Any Aluminum Cookware

According to Franke, cookware that is made of aluminum will become discolored. (Eek!) This goes for the disposable stuff, too.

9. Your Cheese Grater

The cheesy goodness you just sprinkled on top of your tacos might still be stuck in the holes even after a cycle in dishwasher. Instead, use soap and a sponge to wash it by hand and ensure today's cheddar doesn't mix with tomorrow's mozzarella.

10. Your Fancy Chef Knives

Since the hard plastic in your dishwasher shouldn't be nicked, you should keep your knives far away from it, Forte says. But if your dishwasher has a rack for knives, you're the exception to the rule. Lucky duck!

11. Copper Pots, Pans, and Mugs

If you enjoy a tasty Moscow Mule in a copper mug as much as we do, you know half of the appeal is your cup's beautiful color. But according to Franke, the harshness of the dishwasher can cause any copper surfaces to dull. Hand wash your copper mugs, pots, and pans instead.

12. Cookware With Burnt-On Stains

So you let the potatoes sit in the oven for a little too long and now you have dark, stubborn crust on your glass baking dish. Since it'll take some serious elbow grease to tackle it (plus some baking soda!), the dishwasher won't cut it. Just roll up your sleeves and get working.

13. Your Crystal

Keep your punch bowl and glasses far, far away: The high water temperature may leave your crystal chipped, cracked, or dull. But you can check with the manufacturer &mdash some crystal is dishwasher safe. Just make sure it's anchored securely so it doesn't rattle and break.
