You could use a food processor, but I’d suggest just using a cheese grater and a chef’s knife. You can do so many things with just a chef’s knife.

there are so many things to do this but the cuisinart is my fave, second would be a zyliss mandolin (oxoo is good too)

My mother uses a Salad Shooter for grating cheese and slicing things (such as apples for apple pie) and it works really well.

One word of caution about using a mandoline…ALWAYS use the hand-guard. I’ve seen what can happen when you don’t and let’s just say that the meal ends up pretty much ruined when you have to go to the hospital and get stitches.

@ Toffee, it aint pretty. :'(  

@MissHelen: I bought my mom a salad-spinner-thing a few years ago… The westinghouse salad xpress.  She says it’s wonderful for slicing and dicing and such, but every time I go to visit, it’s still in the box. 🙁

Kitchen Aid food processor is definately your best bet if you want something solid that will last and have multiple uses. You can grate cheese, carrots, veggies (zucchin for zucchini bread,etc) you can slice potatos it can even make pastry dough (you just use the blade that’s on the base.  They come in 2 sizes, i think it’s 4 cup capacity and 8 cup capacity plus the base comes in different colors so you can match your kitchen decor. can you tell that i’m drooling over here? i love to cook and appliances are my porn – you don’t want to see me in williams sonoma lol.  personally since i do love to cook i am definately going to get one – i think it will be my tax refund splurge ( i can’t wait for my registry) – and it’s not gadgety.  the 4 cup size is nice, compact and it can sit in the corner on the counter out of way.  whichever you choose, good luck!

oh and it will grate hard cheeses, just don’t put any attachments in it – just the cubed pieces of cheese and watch those blades go to work! amazing.

Everyone here has already said what I was going to say – Mandolin, food processor (hubs got mine at walmart for less than $40 and I love it) or a box grater (which I really need right now)
