I have not used this attachment but it is cheap enough at $36.00 you could try it. Are you looking to grate a large volume of cheese for a professional setting or home?

Thanks,

I don't like the texture of cheese when using a Cusiinart grater disk and doubt that the KitchenAid attachment would be much better.  For half pound I'd continue to continue to use a hand grater or microplane.  8 oz really doesn't take long to shred.

I never had an issue with texture on a FP I just hate cleaning more than I need to and that's not very much cheese. If you really want to go the mechanized route I'd stick with the Cuisinart but a good old fashioned box grater will eat through that much Cheese toot sweet!

For small amounts the KA is quite adequate. Depending on the FP, you might have to empty the bowl when it gets full, and they are a bit or complicated to take apart and wash compard to the KA.

If the OP is after fine ribbons like the KA will make another option is a Zyliss. It will go through that much cheese faster than I get the KA or FP out and set it up. Cost effective and not much to clean either.
