World Famous Grater


"That grater? Your Great, Great Aunt Rose probably grated cheese for her famous chicken gizzard casserole with it." — Machen Supply

Our American made cheese grater has become an iconic Bromwell classic. People from all over the world have written and shared stories with us about inheriting a 100+ year-old Bromwell grater, and how they’ve remained sharp even after all these years. More than likely your mom, grandmother, or maybe even great-grandmother used this same made in the USA grater in their own kitchens. Our handcrafted World Famous Grater features fine, medium, and coarse grating surfaces, plus a slicer, making it the most versatile cheese and vegetable grater on the market. A true keepsake, our original World Famous Grater will endure in your kitchen for decades to come.

Grate Information About Your World Famous Grater:

  • A Jacob Bromwell® product is an investment for life. Only Bromwell manufactures these quality cheese graters! Many other cheese graters imitate the original Bromwell design. None are made as well, and none have the history to back them up. See how it's made here at our Factory Tour!
  • This is the real deal. Still a top seller, still made by Bromwell, and still proudly made in America by red-blooded American workers.
  • Available in both 'original tin' and 'stainless steel'. As a company that prides itself on the authenticity of its products, this Heritage Collection product is available in 'original tin', which is the same material that our company used nearly two centuries ago. For those who prefer a more premium material, we are now offering this product in 'stainless steel' as well for an additional cost. As a premium material, stainless steel has a shinier finish than tin, is a bit heavier, and is rust-resistant.
  • It's still made the good old fashioned way. Handle is attached to the grater using old-fashioned metalworking techniques, just like the graters made by our company nearly 200 years ago.
  • We invented this cheese grater back in 1819. Invented by Mr. Bromwell himself back in 1819, this cheese grater is where the tradition and art of grating began.
  • Stainless steel is guaranteed not to rust. This grater is now also built out of quality stainless steel and guaranteed not to rust.
  • It's the most versatile cheese grater on the market. 9" grater features fine, medium, and coarse grating surfaces, plus a slicing surface, which means you can use it for cheese, vegetables, and much more.
  • Product care: Hand wash only. Do not place in dishwasher.
  • Dimensions and weight: 4 x 3 x 9 (inches), 0.45 (pounds).
  • Minor cosmetic imperfections may occur. Small imperfections are a natural part of the handmade process and lend charm, depth, and individuality to each piece.
  • This product is guaranteed for life. Your purchase is backed by our 100% Lifetime Guarantee, so you can buy with confidence.
  • It's proudly made in America. Still Made in the USA, even after all these years. Buy American and save jobs.

I got this grater shipped to Canada for Christmas for my mom. Let's just say that shipping for this item wasn't cheap. The grater arrived and the one side didn't slot in properly. I understand that things get bonked around in transit. Apart from the defective side, I was pleased with the grater.

what a Lovely, Lovely item. I just checked my kitchen cabinet, and what do you know? It's a Bromwell. Except mine says "michigan City' on it, but I called customer service and they said it's the same one, just with the updated name 'Jacob Bromwell'.

I acquired one of these graters when my mother passed away. I remember her saying she got it from her mother. I contacted Jacob Bromwell to get an idea of just how old it was, and for 65 years old it still works like new. Patricia, where else can you buy something this useful at this price and have it last this long.

An exquisite piece of kitchen equipment! I have had a few box graters now mostly made in lands far far away (Not to say all that is made over seas is crap, but I'm sure you know what I am getting at... The Detail and Attention used in crafting!). I was always jealous of my moms... It was made in the 50's, in Santa Barbara CA none the less. I was ecstatic to find this little gem, and I must say it works so well, and has such sharp blades it make s the roughest jobs seem like a day at the beach! The BEST and made here at home... PERFECT!!!

Thanks for a GREAT product--glad you are still making them here in the USA. We have a flour sifter and grater that have both been used many thousabds of time--the grater is great for making potato chips along with home fries and of course, grating cheese(we are a mac and cheese family)!

My mother passed at 96 in 2010 and both were staples in her kitchen as long as I can remember.
