Microplane is a household name worldwide for its exceptional photo-etched blades, which grate ingredients without bruising and tearing them. This Adjustable V-Blade Slicer & Julienne effortlessly and precisely slices cucumbers, courgettes, onions, cheeses, tomatoes. You can also use it to julienne celery, celeriac, apples, pears and peppers. Salads, stir-fries, garnishes (for sandwiches) will come together much faster. Using the Infinity Dial, select your desired thickness from paper-thin to thick and everything in-between. Flip the cutting surface over to switch to the Julienne side. The durable, razor-sharp stainless-steel teeth cut ingredients into thin, uniform strips without tearing. This slicer features a non-slip foot and bowl anchor to protect the worktop while cutting or to provide stability when grating vertically over pans or bowls. The universal hand guard—which should always be used—protects your hand; however, we also recommend using a cut-resistant glove.

About The Brand
The first Microplane was conceived in 1990 by brothers Richard and Jeff Grace in Arkansas, USA, and was originally intended for use in woodworking. However, as the legend goes, a home cook once decided on a whim to try it out on an orange, and was astonished by the perfectly-shaped shards of zest it could produce. This ultimately led to the development of the Microplane brand as we know it today—a household name and the industry standard for graters, shavers, and zesters.
What sets Microplane products apart from others is their exceptional, long-lasting sharpness: the blades are made by means of a patented photochemical etching process that shapes them far more precisely than traditional mechanical means. The razor-sharp blades finely slice ingredients, rather than crushing or tearing them like the duller metal-stamped blades on standard graters; this makes grating or zesting much less laborious, and improves the taste, texture, and appearance of whatever you’re grating.Shop Microplane
