Not only is the fine blade for shredding Parmesan apparently missing, but so is any slicing blade. I don't mind using my food processor for slicing, but mine just won't grate Parmesan or Romano finely.
I bid on ebay. I typed in mouli shredder and discovered more information about these jewels. I bid on a mouli like yours, with the bending legs. That is what I had before my Mom threw mine away. So I am happy. I also had the orange plastic one too. My Mom threw that away too. I am bidding on one of those to. My kid is calling me the Mouli Queen. haha
The one that Chef has is the original. It's legs do not bend. You should check out all three of them and then check out the cost for these sweet vintage babies....
