JACKSON, MO (KFVS)--  Grater Plater promises you can grate and serve all in one plate, but Does it Work? Connie Flood will help us learn the answer.

"One of the things is when you're holding the grater, and I slipped, cut a finger and put a Band-Aid on," said Connie.

Flood says it's not hard to grate cheese, but if you get going too fast, accidents can happen. She's not alone. Makers of the Grater Plater are capitalizing on that and marketing this product which promises it won't cut fingers. What's more? You can grate and serve all in the same dish. Here we go...

"That's not bad," Connie said while first using the Grater Plater.

She has no problem grating the Parmesan cheese right on the Grater Plater. Next, she uses the included brush to sweep it off into a separate serving dish..

"I think it's working pretty well," said Connie.

Next, we try the Grater Plater on an orange. This would be handy for zesting, but...

"It didn't work for the orange."

In fact, when we look closely you can see some beads of juice are popping up, so it's almost working. No matter how hard we tried, we still couldn't grate the orange. You can even hear how hard we're pressing. Still, Connie thinks this would come in handy, and is willing to "brush off" the fact that it did not work on the orange..

"I would use it on chocolate, cheese, nuts," said Connie.

We're pretty sure you won't cut your finger on this style of grater.

"I'd give it a B plus," she said.

Fair enough. The $10 Grater Plater grinds a solid B+ on this Does it Work test. I got the Grater Plater at Walgreens in Cape Girardeau.
