Q: How much cheese should I grate in a mini food processor?

Q: Does grating cheese in a mini food processor take up too much counter space?
A: If you have a small kitchen and can only fit one appliance, then yes. But if you have a large kitchen and want to save space, then no.
Q: How do you know when your cheese is ready for consumption?
A: Cheese will be ready in about 5 minutes in the food processor, and you will be able to see when it is done when the cheese has melted. You can also identify this while grating cheese when you pull the indentations from the metal grating plate.
