It happens that we use a device or tool for a long time, and only after many years do we find out that it has additional features. For example, the holes in a spaghetti spoon are needed to measure the volume of a portion, and dishwasher extensions are needed to fit tall glasses.

"In our case," writes the website SSPDaily, "we are talking about a cheese grater. Namely, about its fourth side and what it is for.

Although it is obvious that each side of the grater is intended for grating food, many people are puzzled by the fourth side, which has small holes with sharp, outward-facing teeth.

This topic was raised by a Reddit user who asked how to use the side with the smallest holes. The message read: "Does anyone use this part of the grater? What is it for???".

In the comments, the author added: "All it gives me is a pain in my hand, but I have literally never used this side of the grater with the small holes." It turned out that he was not the only one who had problems with the fourth side.

Another commenter wrote: "I have the same one... and I too assumed it was meant to make the cheese a little finer after grating. However, all it does is scrape my hand." Another Reddit user noted: "It's very handy for shredding sponges for cleaning."

Fortunately, experienced cooks joined the conversation and shared their recommendations.

One tip read: "It took me years to realize that it's better to grind parmesan and lemon/orange/lime zest on these two sides."

Another wrote: "Grate hard cheese or garlic, nutmeg, ginger to make a paste." And someone else added: "Potato pancakes are great with this garnish!"

Reference: According to MarthaStewart.com, "The holes on the fourth side are designed for fine grating of cheese, chocolate, vegetables, etc."

In addition, using the smallest holes, you can make thin strands of cheese that dissolve easily in salad dressings or sauces, or, as suggested by Reddit users, grate citrus zest and nutmeg.

The side with the widest slots is suitable for slicing. And the side with the largest holes, which we use most often, is designed for semi-hard cheese, carrots and apples.
