Does a very good and quick job. Ease of Cleaning Not too hard to clean. I give mine a whack on the side of the pot and most of the stuck bits fall out. Then I make sure to wash it right away using my dish brush to reach into the little holes on the chopper. Durability It's a metal tool, mine is covered with some sort of rubbery plastic so I don't think it will break. Even if the covering cracks, I'l peel it off and keep using it if I can. Design It would be great to have a little tool shaped just like the grid but with point to push into the holes o clean it with.
