We designed the Cheese Grotto Piatto as a flatpack solution for your every day cheese storage needs. Just because you have a small kitchen doesn't mean you don't also deserve the best way to store cheese, cheese expert approved.

The bonus is the the Piatto can be easily assembled and disassembled to be stored flat when not in use. The pre-installed magnetic panels only require you to align each side of the Grotto properly for them to automatically lock into place. No additional tooling involved!

Birchwood has been traditionally used in cheese preservation for hundreds of years. Its bark has been wrapped as a belt around soft cheeses for even ripening and added woodsy flavor, and has been made into barrels for the aging of Greek Feta. It’s also been used during the smoking of Idiazabal cheese. Most importantly, birch has been used as shelves for aging in caves. Its tight surface is slower to absorb and release moisture, making it excellent for long-term storage. The finished birch featured in this model is sustainably made, and non-toxic. The finish on the birch makes it mold and stain resistant, both in the interior and exterior.

The architecturally handsome bamboo is extremely resilient, sustainable, and durable over a lifetime (3 X stronger than oak).

The Grotto Piatto is a one-shelf size that fits up to 1 pound of cheese of varying sizes and styles. With a base of 6 inches by 6.5 inches and a height of 6 inches, the Grotto Piatto is an ideal storage solution for serving and storing cheeses throughout the week. The back panel is breathable, making for a perfect climate for simple, long-term storage of wedges and wheels of cheese in the refrigerator or short term storage on the kitchen counter.

Use & Care

• For long term storage of cheese, it is recommended to keep the Cheese Grotto at refrigeration temperatures (34ºF to 39º F, preferably 39ºF). For 7 to 10 days, you can store cheese in the Grotto under 70ºF, like the French do.
• Hand wash bamboo shelf with extremely hot water and a splash of distilled white vinegar.
• Allow the Grotto shelves to air dry between uses
• For maintenance of the bamboo shelf, a monthly application of mineral oil is recommended


Wood has the potential to harbor bacteria and pathogens if not cleaned properly and regularly.

Though Cheese Grotto’s Jessica Sennett is an expert at bringing out cheese’s best flavors, she is not an expert in food safety and she does not offer any opinion about food safety. New York Department of Health regulations requires restaurants to store cheese at a temperature below 45 degrees F, except for up to two hours during preparation for food service. Nothing in Cheese Grotto’s materials, including statements regarding the shelf life of cheese, is intended to (and the materials should not be interpreted to) conflict with food safety regulations and recommendations.

Wonderful Gift

I received this as part of my Valentine's Giveaway with Cheese Grotto and have loved using it and looks great in my refrigerator. As soon as I received it, which was so easy and fun to put together, I went out to get some new cheese. Just love it and definitely has made my Valentine's Day and continues to make my day with cheese and sausage I won and of course a glass of wine. 😉 Thank you also for my cheese and cacao chocolate which was an added bonus.🥰 Highly recommend and such a wonderful and amazing product.

Classic Reminder

The Piazzo sits on a cabinet in my studio apartment and it has one job: keep my Parmesan cheese at the proper temperature. I like to buy a good sized piece, allowing it to mature over a month or three. I received my Piazzo just before en extended season of traveling. Three months in and the Parmesan is in great shape. My favorite dinner guest has noted improvements in taste every few weeks. And because it looks so good sitting there in the open, I see it and am happy; and it also means I use Parmesan more often than I had when it was hidden away in the refrigerator. Also, keeping it at the right temperature prevents clumping caused by condensation. The humidity brick also keeps it at a moisture level is healthier for the cheese and me. It looks good, keeps cheese better -- what's not to love?
