Alessi Todo Cheese Grater

May 05, 2018

Todo Grater by Richard Sapper is the beautiful oversized cheese grater for larger than life people with a love of cheese or nutmeg. (one larger gauge face is for cheese, and a finer gauge face is for nutmeg.

Todo is made from pear wood and stainless steel, and is the ultimate beautiful object with an everyday function. 

Legend has it that the Todo Grater only exists because the late great inventor Richard Sapper was the designated grater in his household… and  in 2004 became frustrated at how fiddly regular graters were for big folk.

Sapper named his invention Todo which is Spanish for ‘The Lot’. His giant sized invention grates things easier and quicker. Sometimes in one fell swoop.

In Australia, the Todo is wonderful for al fresco pasta meals with a bunch of people gathered around a big table on the patio.

Richard Sapper was one of the world’s greatest industrial designers (d. Dec 2015). He famously knocked back Steve Jobs’ offer as the Apple designer – Sapper was happy with his life in Europe and didn’t wish to move to California. Subsequently, when asked if he regretted turning Jobs down he said: “Sure I regret it – the man who then did it [Jonathan Ive] makes $30 million a year!” 

Sapper’s products have won Italy’s revered Compasso d’Oro Design Award a record ten times. If more parmesan lovers or larger than life people were on the judging panel, he’d have won eleven. The Todo Grater is a beautiful present for foodies and entertainers. You can buy it  HERE
