Help Me Find the Perfect Cheese Grater!

Q: I'm looking for the perfect cheese grater, or even just a mostly okay one. I hate the rolled lip on the bottom of so many, which catches cheese goo and water and gets nasty and rusty. I want it sturdy enough to not warp with hard cheeses, two grater sizes, and large enough to accommodate at least two cups. 

Extra points for being attractive, durable, and one piece (we almost immediately lost a plate to our multi-plate Ikea one). Any recommendations or thoughts?

Editor: My own cheese grater recently broke, so I am also on the hunt for the perfect new grater! Faith recently discovered this Chef'n cheese grater and swears by it:

Chef'N Tower Grater 4-in-1, $14 from Amazon
