It is one of those handy multipurpose kitchen tools with three different sections including a fine shredder, a coarse shredder, and a grater. This displays very well and would be great for any collection.

Grater - The Wonder Shredder A nice example in very good condition. The Wonder Shredder was very popular in it’s day and even had a cook book dedicated to it’s usage. This specimen is free of dings and dents and still retains much of it’s bright tin finish. The curved edges allow the shredder to be placed on the top of a bowl. A great addition to any grater collection and as useable today as it was 70 years ago.
