Have to disagree. I really think it is personal preference. It is what you used to, it is what you more comfortable. I much prefer flat grater.

Of course it's personal preference. I agree with Andy. As I said to CG, whatever works

My one major requirement for me with any hand held piece of equipment is that it have rubber feet for stability.

I have several flat graters. The once I like the best are the ones with some rubber rings wrapped around bottom stand/handle.

What to do with a box grater you hate.

Not a flat grater but works great for potatoes.
https://www.amazon.com/SHINKODA-SK-2...words=Shinkoda
It has a grater, at least 2 slicing blades, and a rotary cutter that will chop or dice almost everything very fine. Takes less than 10 seconds to get finely chopped onions.
Heck, it beats egg whites wonderfully. If you are so inclined, it will make thin batters like for waffles, cakes, etc. I know I did that today. Clean up is a snap. Oh I even made a very simple frosting.

Boy, you are really promoting this device. I hope you're getting paid.
