Have you ever wondered how to grate parmesan cheese in a Cuisinart food processor? Look no further, as we have the perfect method for you!

First, make sure your Cuisinart food processor is clean and dry. Next, cut the parmesan cheese into small chunks that will fit comfortably into the feed tube of your food processor.

Step 1: Set up the Food Processor

Attach the grating blade to your Cuisinart food processor. The grating blade typically has sharp edges and larger holes than a slicing blade. Then, place your food processor on a stable surface with enough clearance for the feed tube.

Step 2: Prepare Parmesan Cheese

Cut off any rind or crust from the parmesan cheese and cut it into small chunks. If you have a large block of cheese, it’s best to break it down into smaller pieces that will fit comfortably in the feed tube of your food processor.

Step 3: Grate Parmesan Cheese

Feed the parmesan cheese through the feed tube of your Cuisinart food processor using gentle pressure on the pusher. Make sure to hold onto the pusher firmly with one hand while using your other hand to feed in the cheese chunks.

Once all of the parmesan cheese is grated, turn off your Cuisinart food processor and remove any remaining chunks of cheese from inside.


  • For best results, use freshly grated parmesan cheese instead of pre-grated.
  • If you want finer or coarser shreds, adjust the thickness of your slices by changing blades or by adjusting settings on your machine.
  • Always be careful when handling sharp blades and always unplug before cleaning.


In conclusion, grating parmesan cheese in a Cuisinart food processor is a quick and easy process that yields perfect results every time. With these simple steps, you can have freshly grated parmesan cheese for all your culinary needs. So go ahead and give it a try!
